Devils general manager Ray Shero and Castron were teammates on the St. Lawrence University (ECAC) hockey team 1981-85.
Castron was a scout with the Ottawa Senators while Shero was assistant GM of that club.
Going 'Oldtime' colleague... ~35 years ago! Shero going with people you know and trust, you can't argue with that. Let's just hope the entire Devils' scouting staff too, is experienced, talented, and compensated well to reflect the future of this franchise. Some teams, as I recall, were shockingly paying their scouts peanuts.
