Univ Of Michigan D Jon Merrill has decided to leave school and has signed with NJD. Reporting to AHL, presumably for balance of season.

 

 

Between Larsson and him, we will have a pretty potent D in the coming years.

Can he play in the playoffs like Kredier did for the Rags last year if he shows the ability to be ready for that kind of competition?

whew

 

go blue 

 

 

( see now I'm not thinking Tri is shaking his head reading this thinking "my GOD woman, did you not even READ my post?  Michigan has been eliminated - and they're a team in decline.  Posting that logo is illogical.  Merrill is bidding farwell to Michigan and it's team of losers.  I dispair of this hockey forum! and I don't drink martinis hurumph)

Jon Merrill signs 3-year entry level contract with Devils that begins in 2013-14. Also signed ATO with Albany to play there rest of season.

 

 

 

I doubt he can play for the Devils in the playoffs since technically he's not signed until next season.

No, TG's reporting that his contract doesn't begin until next year, so that's not a possibility (thankfully).

I absolutely love our defense youth, a D-core made of our prospects + Larsson:

Merrill - Larsson
Severson - Gelinas
Urbom - Scarlett
Burlon

Pretty solid IMO, we just gotta add some more talent to our forward prospects and i'll like our pool a lot.

I can see NJ trading one of Gelinas/Urbom for help up front..we have a logjam forming at defense in Albany.
