NCAA Tournament
Here is the bracket.

Devils prospects:

Boston College (Santini) vs. Denver on March 29 at 4 PM (ESPNU).

Also, I haven't seen anything official, but a Michigan Tech fan claims that Blake Pietila needs wrist surgery in this thread. Later in that thread another fan claims that Pietila was playing banged up all year. Not official at all but something to keep an eye on.

Boston/Denver will be interesting, knowing that 2 future D men playing against each other. Santini and Zajac (you know Lou will sign to complete the family tree)  He might be a ECHL regular, but it'll be a good story.

Thursday 3/27
QMJHL 1st Round
#8 Gatineau defeated #9 Cape Breton 7-1 (Win Series 4-0)
Anthony Brodeur G: DNP

OHL Western Quarterfinals
#5 Windsor lost to #4 London 4-3 (Lose Series 4-0)
Ben Johnson LW: Goal, Assist, -1, 2 PIM (Holding)* 2nd Star
Season: 59 GP 28-25-53, +18, 30 PIM
Playoffs: 4 GP 4-2-6, -4, 2 PIM

-- Ben Johnson had 15 goals and 16 assists in his last 26 games (season + playoffs). Really turned it on in the 2nd half of the year and I have the feeling most of his points were even strength, though I still have to check into that. I guess we should find out soon enough if they are going to sign him.

OHL Eastern Quarterfinals
#2 North Bay lost to #7 Niagara 5-3 (Trail Series 3-1)
Ben Thomson LW: -2, 6 PIM (Roughing, Boarding, Slashing)

#3 Kingston lost to #6 Peterborough 3-1 (Lead Series 3-1)
Ryan Kujawinski C: -2
Playoffs: 4 GP 1-1-2, E, 0 PIM

Damn, Gatineau really put up video-game numbers in their series sweep:  29 GF, 7 GA.  Won each game by 5 or 6 goals.

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.

Geez, winning by that much they could even give A. Brodeur a shot at the net.

 

Ben Johnson - I'll be disappointed if they don't sign him.  I'm not sure he's anything, but if he's got any hockey sense he could be an effective penalty killer/bottom lines winger.  Of course they've got Thomson Black and possibly Pietila possibly filling that role in Albany next year - here's where I complain that they drafted too many lefty shooting guys over the last 3 years.

Friday 3/28
OHL Eastern Quarterfinals
#2 North Bay defeated #7 Niagara 4-3 (Trail Series 3-2)
Ben Thomson LW: E

-- No points in the playoffs yet.

#3 Kingston lost to #6 Peterborough 6-5 (OT) (Lead Series 3-2)
Ryan Kujawinski C: -2

WHL Western Quarterfinals
#1 Kelowna defeated #8 Tri-City 4-1 (Win Series 4-1)
Damon Severson D: +2
Myles Bell RW: DNP (Lower Body Injury)

-- Bell was seen walking with crutches. (via @EricStansfield)

-- Kelowna will play either #4 Seattle or #5 Everett in the next round.

NCAA Tournament
Midwest Semifinal
Wisconsin lost to North Dakota 5-2
Joe Faust D: -1
Derek Rodwell RW: -1

-- Faust ends his senior season: 37 GP 2-12-14, +9, 8 PIM, 32 Shots. I can't imagine the Devils sign him given that it took him until this year to get off Wisconsin's 3rd pair and Albany has a roster crunch.

-- North Dakota takes on Ferris State on Saturday for the Midwest Final at 6:30 on ESPNU.

Am I correct that college players (like Santini) can play a few games in the AHL despite not being under contract, or is that just juniors?

No, players who play 1 professional game are obviously ineligible for NCAA participation in the future.  

 

That reminds me, i watched some of the Boston College game - Santini is really what people think Brooks Orpik is or was, at least against that level of competition.  Teriffic penalty killer - he's on their top PK unit as a true freshman.

I don't really think the ATOs would play a ton during the playoffs.  I guess Severson would, but I expect Kelowna to compete for the Memorial Cup.  But someone like Graham Black I'm not sure he's drawing in there every game.  I just want them signed.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the following are the players the Devils either have to sign or relinquish the rights to:

 

Players drafted out of CHL (6/1 deadline): Ben Johnson, Ben Thomson, Graham Black, Artur Gavrus, Myles Bell

Players drafted out of the NCAA (8/15 deadline): Joe Faust, Derek Rodwell, Curtis Gedig

 

I'm not 100% certain on those deadlines. If I had to guess, I think Johnson, Thomson, Black, Bell, and Gedig get signed.

Thanks Fiesty for keeping us updated on all this. 

Any time, glad to do it!

 

Coleman headed back to school. I'd post the link but on my phone. John buccigross rt'ed him personally

I actually like this. He really took a step forward this past season but missed some time due to injury. Albany has a logjam of forwards next year so I think this is a good move for him to get an extra year of development. A side note to that story is that one of the best undrafted free agents, Austin Czarnik, is also returning to Miami for his senior season.

 

In other prospect news, LW Ben Johnson has signed an ATO with Albany. Wonder if we'll here on him getting an ELC soon?

 

Swift Current PBP announcer, Shawn Mullin, interviewed C Graham Black the other day. When asked about his future with the Devils, Black was a bit guarded with his answer. I think they'll sign him and his answer was just him not trying to say too much. His answer was, "Not really, there's nothing worth mentioning. I don't have any concrete facts or anything, so I would probably not rather talk on that."
