• TODAY’S STORYLINES
Preseason Action Starts Tomorrow: The Albany Devils will make the three-plus hour bus ride to Pennsylvania for a 7:05 pm preseason contest against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins Thursday at Mohegan Sun Arena. With 29 players currently on the Devils’ Training Camp roster, Head Coach Rick Kowalsky certainly has different lineup options. He seems to be leaning on giving the majority of the camp’s “tryout” players a shot.
“We’ll get a look at some of the PTO guys in game situations,” Kowalsky said. “We want to make sure we are getting games for some of the guys who have come down from New Jersey and didn’t play a lot. Just getting guys back into it. You can practice as much as you want or scrimmage, but you need to get in there and battling and bumping.”
Gazdic, Merrill Out: The New Jersey Devils announced today that forward Luke Gazdic and defenseman Jon Merrill will both be out for four weeks. Gazdic broke his left foot blocking a shot during the Sept. 26 game against the Flyers, while Merrill broke his right index finger blocking a shot during the Oct. 1 contest against the Rangers.
