Another Try Out: While the Devils have used a few ECHL call ups on PTO's to get by recently, they did add a new professional player on an ATO. Albany signed RW Trevor Mingoia yesterday out of Providence College. Mingoia originally began his NCAA career at Union College back in 2011-12. He spent 2012-13 with Tri-City in the USHL so he would be eligibile to transfer to Providence where he would spend the past 3 years. He finished his NCAA career with 37 goals and 52 assists in 120 games. He was a part of Providence's 2014-15 NCAA Championship team.

Coming Up: Albany will take on Hartford tonight, Binghamton on Friday, Springfield on Saturday, and Binghamton on Sunday.

Joe Faust, Ben Johnson, and Ken Appleby are still with Albany.

Prospect of the Week

I'm going to go with Pavel Zacha for this week's honors. He's produced 3 assists over the course of Sarnia's first 2 games of the series against Sault Ste. Marie. He's been active with 7 shots and has won 56.25% of his faceoffs. He's been doing his part to keep Sarnia in the series.

ADevil of the Week

Albany has been getting by on a full team effort lately so it's difficult to single out just one player. This week I'll go with Ben Johnson after he scored in 2 straight games and added an assist in a 3rd. He's found himself a regular in the line up lately due to call ups and injuries and so far has taken advantage of the opportunity.
