Nick Lappin was recalled by New Jersey on 3/4 and Greg Wolfe who spent some time with Albany last year was signed to a PTO. Karl Stollery was recalled by New Jersey on 3/5. Brandon Gormley was traded to the Senators organization on 3/6.

Friday 3/3: Albany defeated Providence 4-3. Blake Pietila had 2 goals and an assist followed by John Quenneville with 3 assists. Other goal scorers were Max Novak and Nick Lappin. Luke Gazdic, Vojtech Mozik, and Jacob MacDonald had an assist each. Quenneville had 5 shots as the Devils were outshot 39-35. Ken Appleby made 36 saves. With a shortage of forwards, Yohann Auvitu had to play a bit up front. Albany went 1/3 on the PP and 2/3 on the PK. Here is the gamesheet.

Saturday 3/4: Albany lost to Utica 3-0. Petr Straka led the way with 5 shots as the Devils outshot the Comets 38-27. Mackenzie Blackwood made 24 saves. Albany went 0/4 on the PP and 4/4 on the PK. Here is the gamesheet.

Well Deserved: Jacob MacDonald was signed to a 2 year AHL deal that begins this season. The 24 year old signed a PTO on 1/5 and has immediately become a regular offensive contributor on the blue line for the ADevils with 4 goals and 7 assists in 19 games.

Scarlett for Harper: With an abundance of healthy defenseman but a lack of available forwards, the Devils moved Reece Scarlett to Florida for AHL veteran forward Shane Harper. Scarlett has had a solid AHL career but it seemed like he was never going to factor into NJ's plans. Harper has 84 goals and 96 assists in 381 AHL regular season games. Here is John's post on the trade.

Coming Up: Albany will take on Binghamton on Friday and Bridgeport on Saturday.

Prospect of the Week

Once again I'm going to have to go with Michael McLeod after he posted a goal and 3 assists in 3 games last week. Since returning from the WJC, he now has 16 goals and 22 assists in 25 games. Production like this coupled with the praise from Brock Otten is certainly exciting.

ADevil of the Week

Blake Pietila earns this week's honors after adding 2 goals and an assist with 6 shots over the course of 2 games. Not known for his offense in college, he's continued to be one of Albany's top producers and will certainly stay on New Jersey's radar.
