If guys on the big club are going down with injuries, not much Fitz can do…kinda has no choice but to call up Utes as replacements.  

Yea, but there are prob less productive options like Clarke and Gauthier vs taking Greer and Zetterlund who have been important to Utica. I guess it doesn't matter. I am not sure they could miss the playoffs at this point.

On the other side of things, I wonder if Fitz sends Utica any extra help for the playoffs once the Devils season is over? I’d imagine Ty Smith would be the main candidate, but maybe also guys like Mercer and Sharongovich? I really don’t know how the rules work with that.

Players had to be sent down by a certain date in march and be on the AHL roster to be eligible for the AHL playoffs. As far as I am aware the Devil's didn't do that.

They did it for Daws, I remember it was a quick on paper send down. But yeah no one else got that.

They’re not missing the playoffs…they have too large of a lead at this point in the season to be overtaken.  

And even though it’s nice if Utica wins, it’s always about the big club.  What’s nice is those kids will find themselves back with Utica for the playoffs.  And I don’t mind a guy like Zetterlund getting a look with the big club…at the very least, coming up here is a reminder for players like him that the NHL is quite the big step up from the AHL.

Zetterlund had a great game yesterday too, probably his best in the NHL so far. He’s done nothing but improve. I have hope he can be an effective bottom six guy.

Yeah depending on how active the Devils become in UFA and/or how many of their own get big raises (see Bratt), having cheap from-within guys who can give you a few years filling specific needs is important.  Would be great if Zetterlund and other kids could do that.

He is a centre, he had 12 points on 42 games this season. Looks like a depth AHL signing at best. 

 

 

Probably to make up for dealing Schnarr.

Congratulations to the boys and coaching staff in Utica. Part of the job done, all about prepping for the playoffs now. 

 

 

Awesome job by the boys! Hopefully big things ahead in the playoffs.

That’s the sign of a very confident player. I can’t wait to see if he can translate this season to the nhl

It’s funny, it feels like he’s tailed off as his first pro season has wore on, but he’s put a respectable 4 G and 4 A over his last 10 GP.  And overall his year with Utica was promising. 

Still think he’s a guy we’re going to have to be patient with…I think it’s going to take him at least two seasons in the NHL before he really starts to heat up.

I’m going to give him a snarky, sarcastic nickname from opening night next season until he heats up.
