AHL
Albany defeated Bridgeport 3-0. Scoring for the Devils was Matteau (K. Zajac, Hoeffel), K. Zajac (PP, Urbom, Larsson), and McKelvie (Gelinas, Urbom). McKelvie was stopped on a penalty shot in the 1st. Kinkaid started and stopped all 16 shots he faced in 38:41 before leaving with an injury. Wedgewood stopped all 12 shots he faced in 21:12. Shots were even at 28 a side and Albany went 1/2 on the PP and 4/4 on the PK. Here is the gamesheet.

Albany plays on 2/9 and 2/14 and may need to call up a goalie if Kinkaid is going to miss time. Clermont is on the ECHL IR until 2/14.

ECHL
Elmira defeated Evansville 5-3
Artem Demkov: E, 1 Shot
Riley Boychuk: E, 3 Shots
Harry Young: +1, 2 Shots
Maxime Clermont: DNP (Injured)

 

ECHL Friday 2/7
Elmira defeated Evansville 3-1
Artem Demkov: +1, 2 Shots

Hmmm... Kincaid was hurt yesterday so 39-year-old Anthony Felice is currently listed as Scott Wedgewood's backup today against the Manchester Monarchs.

Felice seems to be the Devils minor league emergency standby goaltender for the past few years. He's played in 2 ECHL games (2010-11, 2011-12) for Trenton. In 3 minutes of time he has stopped 2 of 3 shots. Mike Ashmore had this nice write up on him from 2/18/11 when he appeared for Trenton in his ECHL debut.Trenton. I think he's dressed a few times as the back up for Lowell and Albany before. This guy used to practice with the New Jersey Rockin' Rollers back in the day if anyone remembers the roller hockey league. I think he's still a manager at a fitness club as his full time job.

 

Merrill was returned to Albany for the Olympic break but isn't in the line up today. Larsson is playing but Gelinas isn't - I don't think Gelinas can play during the break.

Cool, thanks for the info. I wonder how much he makes for a game.

I haven't seen Demkov play but judging by numbers he seems like a great ECHL player, probably a good AHL player, and may get a chance to crack a NHL line up one day, though he is already 24 so he's getting a bit old and the odds are probably against him. In 129 ECHL games he has 55 goals and 60 assists (0.89 PPG). This year in 22 AHL games he has 6 goals and 5 assists (0.50 PPG). Small sample size but his goals per game ratio for the AHL this year is in the 75th percentile.

 

Ryder split his 1st 2 pro years between the AHL and ECHL at the ages of 20 and 21. In 25 career ECHL games he had 18 goals and 18 assists.

Albany lost to Manchester 3-0. Wedgewood stopped 26 of 29 shots. Boucher and Sislo had 4 shots each. Albany was outshot 29-19 and only managed 3 shots in the 3rd period despite being down 3-0. Albany was 0/4 on the PP and 6/6 on the PK. Here is the gamesheet.

Albany is now 9th in the conference with 57 points. 4 points separated 4th thru 9th.

Wedgewood's been pretty horrible all year and Kinkaid's play really has slipped as of late. In their last 9 games Albany is 2-5-0-2 and have just scored 17 goals. It's almost 4 AM so I'm not going to look thru the boxscores but I feel like their possession numbers probably have slipped some as well. It will be interesting when the guy that keeps track of the estimated possession comes out with his next spreadsheet.

 

When I eventually add AHL stats to my blog, I was planning on having a rolling SV% graph for the goalies. Looking at Kinkaid's month by month game log I noticed  he entered January with a .927 SV% but that fell to .912 after putting up a .879 SV% in January. He was off to a decent start this month but who knows how long he will be out with his injury.

 

Really wish I had read this article years ago before I bought into believing the Wedgewood hype hook, line, and sinker.

I haven't checked (and I won't) but it kinda felt like they were riding the percentages a fair bit, certainly in goal. 

 

As for the CHL article...time travel is hard man :)

Kinkaid was probably playing well above his head when he was at .927.  And yeah, Wedge is not playing well at the AHL level. 

 

Right now, neither of these guys has a future here.  It all goes back to Lou's actions speaking volumes.  Schneider was clearly a terrific grab, but does anyone think Lou wanted to cough up a top-10 pick to bring in a guy who could leave after two seasons, and who will likely cost near top dollar and term to stay?  Ideally, Kinkaid and/or Wedge would've been a terrific, in-house, low-cost option.  But neither is. 

 

At least Wedge has youth and time on his side, but that's about all at this point.  Kinkaid will be 25 by the start of next season.  Basically, neither of these guys should really be viewed as potential Plan Bs by anyone, unless Plan B is to spend a couple of seasons trying to get Top 5 draft picks.

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.

So Tedenby is doing very little after that first great game. Barely getting any shots on goal. Fair to say that he will be gone in the off-season.

I bet DeBoer isn't playing him enough.

 

I listened to that David Conte interview linked in the prospects thread and while there's a lot in it that makes me wary of this team's method of evaluating people, some of the stuff about 'making the commitment to become an NHL player' seems to ring true with Tedenby.
