Devils Bring In Another Forward: With Blake Pietila recalled yesterday and expected to make his NHL debut tonight at Pittsburgh, Albany signed forward Justin Crandall to a PTO. The 23-year-old joined the team for practice at Knickerbacker Ice Arena this morning. Crandall, who will wear jersey number 38, has spent the majority of the season playing with Reading (ECHL) and his 51 points, including 15 goals and 36 assists, are tied for third among ECHL rookies.
Radio Schedule Changes: The Devils’ games Friday at Syracuse and Saturday at Hershey will no longer be broadcast on 104.5 “The Team” ESPN Radio. Fans can still stream the games for free at ahllive.com. Additionally, the Devils’ contests on April 8 and 9 will now be aired on “The Team.” Each broadcast includes a 10-minute pre and postgame show.
