18-0 in the second? So the A-Devs will have trouble scoring this year as well? Surely you jest...

Are these guys signed by Devils?  On loan from somewhere else?

Got to watch a lot of Artem Demkov last year agaisnt the Titans. He left Elmira in the middle of the year to play in Germany... the Jackals are a poorly run ECHL team, not that the Titans are any better lol. But I'd consider Demkov an elite ECHLer, definetly should be playing in at least the AHL. Hope we sign him.

From what I understand Demkov and Goldenkov are on tryouts. I assume if Demkov doesn't make it then he'll go back to Elmira (ECHL). No idea where Goldenkov would go, probably back to Russia I suppose. With the roster crunch up front, it seems like the odds are against them. The 2nd and final preseason game may be there last chance to win a spot.

 

I was thinking about Ben Thomson today. His career potential at best is making the NHL as a 4th liner as an enforcer. Instead of using a reserve list spot on him and signing him to an ELC, I wonder if they could do something similar to what they did with Corbin McPherson. McPherson was also a draft pick but a project prospect and not really a high upside guy and they signed him to an AHL contract instead of an ELC. I'm sure Thomson would rather play in the AHL than go back to the OHL as a 20 year old considering it's not like he is going to develop much more there.

Alexandre Carrier, Artem Demkov and Dmitry Goldenkov were each released from their tryout agreement.

With the amount for forwards Albany has, it's not a surprise neither of these 3 didn't make it. I thought Carrier was in camp on an AHL deal (year 2 of 2 year deal) but I suppose he was let out of it a few weeks ago. He signed with Elmira (ECHL) 9/19 so he'll play with Demkov this year anyway.

Obviously everyone knows Urbom is gone. In other Albany roster news, Ben Thomson has been returned to Kitchener (OHL). Also, apparently they are trying Matteau on a line with Pelley and Sislo. No other ideas what else they may be trying.

I'm hoping Gelinas can impress.  He needs to be on the big team.

Devils sent G Clermont, D Hrabarenka, D/W Young, and LW Boychuk to Elmira (ECHL). I was hoping Kelly would've been the D sent to the ECHL but I doubt that was ever an option. I also doubt but hope Kelly is the 7th D. I want the other 6 guys to get the most playing time.

 

 

The opening-day roster:

  • Goaltenders (2): Keith Kinkaid, Scott Wedgewood
  •  
  • Defensemen (7): Seth Helgeson, Jon Merrill, Brandon Burlon, Eric Gelinas, Dan Kelly, Corbin McPherson, Reece Scarlett
  •  
  • Forwards (14): Joe Whitney, Rod Pelley, Kelly Zajac, Tim Sestito, Reid Boucher, Harri Pesonen, Chris McKelvie, Scott Timmins, Stefan Matteau, Mike Sislo, Cam Janssen, David Wohlberg, Darcy Zajac, Mike Hoeffel

Awesome to see Merrill get 3 assists in game 1! Pesonen and Gelinas each had a team high 4 shots. Kinkaid stopped 18 of 22 shots. Pelley wore the C and Sestito and McKelvie wore the A's. Here is the game sheet. Waiting on highlights to get uploaded.

At least we know we made the right decision with Schneider. My god Albany hasn't gotten great goaltending in forever.

Albany defeated Utica 3-2. Scoring for the Devils was Boucher (Timmins, Scarlett), Sislo (Gelinas), and Whitney (Gelinas, Timmins). Kinkaid stopped 23 of 25 shots. D. Zajac, McKelvie, and Helgeson had fights in the 1st with Helgeson's being a secondary altercation thus game misconduct. The Devils outshot Utica 29-25 and went 0-4 on the PP. Whitney had a team high 4 shots. Gelinas, Sislo, and Kinkaid were named the 3 stars. Here is the gamesheet. Below are the highlights:



Albany's next game is Monday against Adirondack.

Elmira closed out their preseason with a 3-1 victory over Reading. Clermont stopped 29 of 30 shots to earn 1st star. Boychuk had an assist, +1, and 1 shot. Young and Hrabarenka did not play.

I'm thinking Reid Boucher will most likely be a Ryder type of player.  Basically he'd be a Brett Hull lite.
