This thread is self-explanatory. This is the place where we'll find the goods at it relates to the A-Devs and the K-Wings.

...Next season, of course. I just wanted to get it ready now. (Yeah, I'm THAT bored.)

Trenton Devils to suspend operations beginning in 2011-12

The Trenton Devils will suspend operations, beginning with the 2011-12 season, The Record/Northjersey.com has learned.

A source said the New Jersey Devils, which purchased the Trenton team in 2006, had sought a buyer for the ECHL franchise, which plays its home games at Sun National Bank Center, but was unable to find one and is moving forward with restructuring the organization’s minor league system. The ECHL also been granted a limited window to look for an owner for the Trenton franchise and was unsuccessful.

The Devils put out a statement this afternoon addressing the Trenton Devils’ situation.

It reads: “The ECHL’s Trenton Devils will suspend play beginning with the 2011-12 season. The New Jersey Devils are restructuring the organization’s player development system to be more in line with other NHL franchises. In fact, Trenton was the only ECHL team that was completely owned by an NHL club. The New Jersey Devils organization would like to thank all of the fans who have supported the Trenton Devils the past five seasons.”

The 2011-12 ECHL scheduled has already been announced, but teams were told at the league’s board of governors’ meeting last month to prepare a list of alternate available dates at their respective arenas in case a new schedule had to be formulated to account for the Trenton Devils not participating. Tickets, which have been on sale since April, will also have to be refunded.

Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello said the team’s ECHL-level players “will go into the pool with the rest of the league,” meaning they will be spread out on different teams. The Devils did not have a full-time ECHL affliate prior to buying the Trenton team and were the only NHL team to fully own an ECHL franchise.


The rest... just like Maryanne.

From F&I

The Rangers defeated the Devils 5-4 in overtime in an AHL exhibition game this afternoon at the Prudential Center practice rink.

Devils reach ECHL affiliation agreement with Kalamazoo Wings

From F&I

The Devils have reached an affiliation agreement with the Kalamazoo Wings of the ECHL for the 2011-12 season.

The Devils had no ECHL affiliation after ceasing operations of the Trenton Devils on July 6.

The New Jersey Devils and the AHL Albany Devils will both be able to assign players to Kalamazoo (Michigan). The Vancouver Canucks also have an affiliation with the team.

“We are honored to be associated with two of the most prestigious organizations in the NHL (New Jersey and Vancouver),” Kalamazoo Wings President Paul L. Pickard said in a statement released by the Devls. “The Devils have created a culture of winning through their affiliations and we are delighted to be working with them to help develop their players.”

The last time the Devils lost in regulation on home ice, fans had Halloween on their minds; not Christmas. Thanks to wins against Bridgeport (4-3) Friday and Rochester (4-2) Sunday, the Devils extended their point streak at the Times Union Center to nine games. Their last regulation loss came on Oct. 21 against Hershey.

Albany claimed four out of a possible six points this past weekend and hit the road this week with games at Rochester Friday and at Toronto Saturday. Both games can be heard on 104.5 “The Team” ESPN Radio.

Cool. Becoming a tough team to beat on home ice.

Defenseman Matt Taormina said he got the word that he had been selected to play in the AHL All-Star Game on Jan. 30 in Atlantic City after he woke up from his pre-game nap this afternoon.

“My girlfriend told me after my pre-game nap,” he said. “She had seen it on Twitter or something like that.”

Taormina, obviously, would like to remain on the Devils’ NHL roster, but still appreciates being selected as an AHL all-star.

“It’s a tremendous honor to be named an all-star and you’d like to be here as long as you can, but I don’t know what’s going with the injury situation on D and when everybody is going to be back and healthy,” he said.

Taormina, 25, has never played in an all-star game at any level before, so he wouldn’t mind playing in this one. He would have to be officially assigned to the AHL to do so. Also, the Devils have their first game following the NHL all-star break the next night against the Rangers.

“It would be nice to play in the game,” he said. “It is fairly close, which is nice. I know we have a game the next day here—if I’m still here—against New York, so I don’t know how all of that will work out.”

Defenseman Matt Taormina said he will not be playing in the AHL All-Star Game next Monday in Atlantic City because the Devils plan to keep him on their NHL roster at least through the NHL all-star break.

It’s unclear whether the Albany Devils will have another player named to replace Taormina.

Taormina said he had “mixed” feelings about missing the AHL All-Star Game.

“You’d like to play in it if you can, but on the bright side I’m still up here,” he said.

It's clear now.

Albany Devils defenseman Alexander Urbom has been named to replace Matt Taormina on the Eastern Conference roster for the 2012 AHL All-Star Classic on Sunday and Monday at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall.

As I reported Monday. Taormina will not be participating in the AHL all-star festivities because he will remain on the Devils’ NHL roster at least through next week—probably longer with Henrik Tallinder out six to eight weeks with a blood clot in his lower left leg.

Urbom. 21, has one goal, eight assists, and a plus-4 defensive rating in 30 AHL games this season with Albany. He had one goal, no assists and a plus-1 rating in five NHL games with the Devils this season.

One-One Punch

From Kevin Zalaznik for thealbanydevils.com

If you are expecting this article about New Jersey Devils prospect goaltenders Jeff Frazee and Keith Kinkaid to touch on the subject of being the heir to Martin Brodeur’s crease, turn back now.

The month of March is here and Brodeur and the NHL Devils are on a mission to hoist the Stanley Cup. In Albany, Frazee, Kinkaid and the AHL Devils are on a journey to claim their own hardware.

For the first time in a month and a half, Albany is in Calder Cup Playoff position. They entered the top eight in the Eastern Conference thanks to a 7-3-0-0 record in their last 10 games, including five of seven road victories.

The catalyst to the team’s success has started between the pipes.

“Obviously our schedule is pretty hectic, but I just told them as much as we want them to be great every night, they need to be good,” said head coach Rick Kowalsky. “Our recent success, leading up to this point, has started in net.”

This is the first year for Frazee and Kinkaid working as a tandem. Don’t worry, they haven’t been given a ridiculous celebrity-combo-name like Franaid or Kinee. What they have been given though is a chance to share responsibilities and give their team a chance to win on a regular basis.


The rest... just like Maryanne.

Kelly Zajac signs ATO with Albany

Center Kelly Zajac will join brother, Darcy, on the Albany Devils after signing an amateur tryout contract with the AHL team today.

Kelly, 23, just completed his senior season at Union College (not far from Albany), which he helped reach the Frozen Four before an NCAA semifinal loss to Ferris State last Thursday. He is the third of four hockey-playing Zajac brothers. New Jersey Devils center Travis is the oldest and youngest brother, Nolan, is headed to the University of Denver next season.

“He’ll get his first taste of pro hockey, I guess,” Travis said today of Kelly. “I knew he had a couple of options and he wanted to go there (to Albany).”

The Albany Devils have three regular season games remaining—all at home. They’ll host Norfolk on Friday, Providence on Saturday and Syracuse on Sunday.

With Darcy, 25, returning last week from a concussion, the two brothers will get a chance to be teammates for three games at least.

“It’s really exciting,” Travis said. “He had a great year this year and, hopefully, he’ll continue to have success throughout his career and get better. It’s a good organzation. I think it’s a good fit for him just the way he plays. He’s responsible at both ends of the ice and he definitely fits that team.”

The Albany Devils today signed Reid Boucher to an amateur tryout agreement. The announcement was made by Albany Devils General Manager Chris Lamoriello.

Boucher, 18, was drafted in the fourth round (99th overall) by New Jersey during the 2011 Entry Draft. The 5-11, 195-lb. left-winger joins Albany after completing his first season with the Sarnia Sting of the OHL. He registered 50 points (28g-22a) in 67 games. Additionally, he posted three points (2g-1a) in six playoff contests.

Prior to his time with Sarnia, Boucher spent two years with the United States National Development Program. In 2009-10, he had 14 points (10g-4a) in 24 USHL contests. He also produced 16 points (7g-9a) in 17 outings with the Under-17 team and made one appearance with the Under-18 squad. In 2010-11, Boucher had 20 points (14g-6a) in 24 USHL games and registered 20 points (12g-8a) in 35 contests with the Under-18 team.
