2013-14 Albany Devils and ECHL Thread

471 posts in this topic

Nice to see Wedgewood with a hot streak. Maybe he can pull things together next season. 

 

Would be nice to see a drafted Devils goalie not fizzle out by his mid-20s for a change, wouldn't it?

Yeah that really would be great haha. I can't think of one who hasn't since the Marty, Schwab, Dunham draft in 1990.

Albany's going to have a loaded defense for their playoff run. 

 

As for theDevils goalie drafting history...Ari Ahonen's has actually been an excellent KHL goalie for a number of years now.

WOW..What a game by Albany. Sweet rip by Boucher to tie it. Albany seems poised to be a dangerous team in the Calder Cup playoffs.

Nice to see Wedgewood with a hot streak. Maybe he can pull things together next season. 

I believe in Wedgewood.  It would be great it he continues his development and slots in very nicely behind Schneider after a few years.  If Cory continues to play well, Wedge could be a great young asset(age 24 or 25 maybe) to flip for a talented young forward.  I'm getting ahead of myself, but something to believe in and hope for.  Watching those highlights, I'm thinking, "Damn, Sislo and Boucher are quite the young forwards."  Sislo's goal was just as pretty as Boucher's.  He split the D on that one.  Also, Larsson is getting a lot of PP time in Albany, which is excellent for his development I think.  I feel that Hrabarenka has been playing quite well too, he made an excellent diving defensive play in those highlights.  I actually might try and follow the A-Devs and their playoff hopes.

Good to see Janssen back playing. He was out with some infection for a while, correct?

 

I liked Sislo's game his entire time while he was up. He should be up next year with the big club.

I honestly didn't even notice until now that Janssen missed a month. I searched but didn't find anything relating to an infection or why he missed time so I'm not sure what was up.

 

I also hope to see Sislo in NJ next season. According to CapGeek he is a UFA so hopefully Lou is able to re-sign him. Great year for him though, 23 goals, 16 assists in 53 games and 2.47 shots per game. His SH% is a high 17.56 but still, I think he deserves an extended look. He's going to be 27 next year so it's not like he's going to get much better, time to see if he can handle it full time in the NHL.

 

I also want to give some praise to Kelly Zajac. 9 goals, 28 assists in 56 games in his 1st full AHL season. Seems like he has a decent chance to land a NHL contract from the Devils. Darcy landed one at an older age with much less production.

 

 

Wedgewood coming up big in a stretch run is good to see.

It's awesome that he's stepped up this month (.930 SV% in 5 games) since Kinkaid has been in a bit of rut. He's only facing an average of 20 shots per game in those 5 starts so his teammates seem to be doing a solid job in front of him.

Looks like Hraberanka earned a spot on the team by his own merit. O think we can feel pretty good about our "D" in the near future. I hope Lou does resign Sislo

Comparing Larsson's PPG from last year to this year, he's doing slightly better, but his SPG have really picked up lately

Wedgewood was left out to dry all alone on that last goal he allowed.  Shame.  Wedge looks like he might need to challenge the play a bit more.

Urbom on that turnover for the first goal, sheeeesh. :doh1: I just mentioned in other thread that he could be a 7th defenseman.

Haha, I was gonna send you over here when I read that - yeah even ignoring that play I really don't think he's done enough to merit a spot in the NHL.

Albany lost to Adirondack 4-3 despite putting up 53 shots. Scoring for the Devils was Pelley (Wohlberg, D. Zajac), Scarlett (PP, Urbom, Whitney), and Timmins (PP, Urbom, Whitney). Wedgewood stopped 5 of 7 shots in the 1st period and Kinkaid stopped 23 of 25 shots in the final 2 periods. Apparently Wedgewood was injured. Shots were 53-32 Albany with Whitney leading the way with 8, followed by Timmins and Johnson with 6 each. Albany went 2/6 on the PP and 4/6 on the PK. Here is the gamesheet.

Albany has 5 games left and is in 7th place at the moment with 83 points in 71 games, though Norfolk is currently playing and can tie them in points with a victory while maintaining a game in hand. Hershey has moved up to 8th at the moment with 82 points and a game in hand on Albany.

Need these Devils to step it up and get in the playoffs. I would send down Larsson, Gelinas, and Merrill and let them make a run at a cup together.
