Tedenby is on the 3rd line in Albany?


4 goals and 11 assists in 27 GP for Tedenby in the A...not good. But at least he's getting some shots on goal...65 of them. He's still pretty young at 22, but if he doesn't show any progress next season, I'm definitely wondering about his future as an NHLer. At least Josefson's showing signs of being servicable and competent at this point.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Albany defeated Providence 4-3. Scoring for the Devils was Nagy (3) (Urbom and McPherson), Kelly (2) (Gelinas and Zalewski), Gionta (5) (Anderson and Gelinas), and Wohlberg (1) (Mills and Gionta). Wohlberg was also stopped on a penalty shot. Kinkaid stopped 35 of 38 shots and was backed up by Pielmeier with Frazee out with a broken nose. Gionta and Kelly earned the 1st and 3rd stars. Here is the gamesheet. Below are the highlights.

Their next game is Saturday against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton at 7:00.

Kalamazoo lost to Chicago 4-2: Clermont (3 Saves on 3 Shots in 18:53 of relief).

Note: In Lou We Trust did a fantastic prospect report on Eric Gelinas. I highly suggest checking it out.

As Rowdy noted, the AHL playoff of race is nuts. Here is where they stand after tonight.

7. Syracuse 69 GP 74 Pts
8. Manchester 69 GP 73 Pts
9. Adirondack 69 GP 72 Pts
10. Portland 69 GP 72 Pts

It was his second game. So far he has a goal, +2, and 4 shots. The other college senior that came to Albany, Corbin McPherson, has an assist, -1, 4 shots, and 2 penalty minutes.

It's really discouraging to see a lack of production from Tedenby in the AHL. You'd think a guy with so much raw talent would be able to dominate down there. But, then you can bring back some hope after watching this video:

This summer may make or break Tedenby's career. To say that about a 22 year old may seem harsh but unless he has improved his defensive awareness 200% in his time with Albany, he is on a track downwards.

Some recent transactions:

Albany adds Kelly Zajac with ATO, Returns Haczyk to Kalamazoo

During his final season with the Dutchmen, Zajac served as an assistant captain and put up 42 points (8 g, 34 a) in 41 games. He also set a Union single season record for assists and helped the Dutchmen to the ECAC Hockey regular season and conference titles on route to the first NCAA Frozen Four appearance in program history.

Over the course of his four-year collegiate career, Zajac accumulated 128 points with 37 goals and 91 assists in 159 games, good enough for second all-time in school history for points, first for assists and first for games played.

Expected move and it seems likely he will be signed by Albany for next season to play with Darcy. Then the Devils will have 3 of the 4 Zajac's in the organization.

Albany Signs Reid Boucher to ATO

Boucher, 18, was a fourth-round pick (99th overall) in last year’s draft bu the New Jersey Devils. He just completed his first season with the Sarnia Sting of the Ontario Hockey League (50 GP, 28-22–50).

I didn't expect this news but I am happy to see it. Boucher had a decent rookie year in the OHL and this could be a nice experience to give him a taste of what the next level has to offer so he knows how much more he needs to develop in Sarnia next year.

Kinkaid started but lasted just 28:14 making 13 saves on 17 shots before being replaced by Frazee who played 31:46 making 8 saves on 9 shots. Kelly Zajac made his debut and was even, Reid Boucher did not play. Here is the gamesheet. Highlights below:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMmJIArHHwo

Their next game is Saturday against Providence at 7:00.

Kalamazoo defeated South Carolina 6-4: Young (+1, 1 Shot, 2 PIM - Interference), Haczyk (E, 1 Shot), and Clermont (DNP). Kalamazoo leads series 1-0.

Elmira defeated Florida 3-1: Pielmeier (DNP). Elmira leads series 1-0.

Important note regarding Trenton and Devils ECHL affiliation:
Mike Ashmore

"More and more likely the Trenton Titans will have a dual affiliation in 2012-13, by the way. Flyers no matter what. Devils as other half."

Albany lost their final game of the year to Syracuse 2-1. Scoring for the Devils was Tedenby (8) (PP, Burlon and Anderson). Clermont made 21 Saves on 23 shots in his 2nd game of the year. Reid Boucher made his AHL debut with a -1 rating and 4 shots. Tedenby earned 3rd star. Here is the gamesheet. Below are the highlights.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyIgCHO5b1Y

Tedenby had a solid April, scoring 2 goals, 3 assists, in 6 games with 12 shots, an even rating, and just 2 penalty minutes. He finishes the season: 35 GP 6 G 14 A 20 Pts E 22 PIM 7.41 SH% 2.31 S/G

They finish the year 31-34-6-5 with 73 points, good for last place in the Northeast Division and 14th in the Eastern Conference. Over the course of the year Albany scored just 190 times while allowing 226. For reference, just Lake Erie (189) and Hamilton (185) scored less than Albany.

I highly suggest reading Bill Cain's season review. It is lengthy but has quotes from Chris Lamoriello, Rick Kowalsky, Joe Whitney, and Tim Sestito as well as analysis on what went right and what went wrong. Really solid recap.

Also, In Lou We Trust has an interview regarding Kelly Zajac with Ken Schott of the Daily Gazette who covers ECAC hockey, especially Union, closely.

With Albany done, this thread will pretty much just carry the ECHL updates.

Kalamazoo currently leads their semifinal series against South Carolina 2-0. Game 3 is Wednesday at 7:05.

Elmira lost to Florida 5-4: Pielmeier (50 Saves on 55 Shots in 79:57). Elmira trails series 2-1. Game 4 is Wednesday at 7:30. Nice to see Pielmeier wrestle the starting job back, though I doubt the Devils retain him after this year.
