Here’s what you need to know for Tuesday.
64 is the magic number
This year’s NJ Devils Training camp roster includes 64 names, including 26 players who suited up for Albany in 2013-14.
Rod Pelley, Tim Sestito, Chris McKelvie, Mike Sislo and Dan Kelly — Albany’s leadership group from last year — are all in camp.
Rebuilding the coaching staff
With Tommy Albelin being named to New Jersey’s coaching staff, David Cunniff has been hired to fill the void in Albany. He joins the Devils after spending the previous 12 seasons in the San Jose Sharks organization. David is the son of former NJ Devils Head Coach John Cunniff.
Gelinas re-signs before camp
The Devils re-signed restricted free agent defenseman Eric Gelinas, President and General Manager Lou Lamoriello announced yesterday.
“Just happy to have everybody here, everybody ready,” Lamoriello said. “It’s the first step towards getting our team together. We’ve got all our players here, and now training camp begins.”
On Monday, rookies reported to Prudential Center for the beginning of training camp. They split their time between physicals and media headshots.
The first on-ice session for the rookies will take place later this afternoon.
Tee time and then ice time
The New Jersey Devils host the 14th Annual Alumni Association Charity Golf Classic today at Upper Montclair Golf Club. The event features a silent auction for exclusive Devils memorabilia to support the association’s charitable efforts in the community.
