THE MacBETH REPORT:
F Sean O'Connor (Moose Jaw, 1999-2002) signed a one-year contract with Ingolstadt (Germany, DEL). He had 12 goals and 11 assists as captain of the Augsburger Panther (Germany, DEL) this season. . . .
F Yegor Mikhailov (Spokane, 1996-97) signed a two-year contract with Amur Khabarovsk (Russia, KHL). The son of former Soviet star Boris Mikhailov had seven goals and seven assists in 35 games for Spartak Moscow (Russia, KHL) this season. Mikhailov was the most seriously injured member of the Chiefs in a January 1997 bus crash just outside of Cranbrook. The article on the accident from the Spokane Spokesman-Review is right here.
The Edmonton Oilers have signed D Brandon Davidson, who played out his WHL eligibility with the Regina Pats this season. Davidson, who was the Pats’ captain, had 49 points in 69 games with the Pats. He was a sixth-round pick in the 2010 NHL draft.
NHL teams have to sign 2010 draft picks today — I believe the deadline is 5 p.m. ET, but please don’t hold me to that — or they become eligible for the 2012 draft.
The 2012 draft is scheduled for Pittsburgh on June 22 and 23.
