Assistant captain Mike Sislo had a breakout season in his third full professional year with the Devils. His name could be found at the top of the score sheets through 59 games with Albany, giving him a chance at his first call-up by New Jersey. He posted two career highs, leading Albany with 23 goals and finishing third with 41 points. Because of his speed and versatility, Sislo was relied on heavily on the power play and penalty kill. He finished tied for first with seven power-play goals and led the team with three shorthanded tallies. The 26-year-old made his NHL debut on Jan. 3 against Chicago and played a total of 14 games during three stints in Newark this season.
What Was Said by Sislo…
I felt the coaches gave me the opportunity to have success here and I thought that went pretty well. Getting the opportunity to play up in New Jersey: it’s obviously everyone’s dream and goal to make it to the NHL so that was a real positive.

What Was Said About Sislo…
I think it’s just confidence. He’s been in the league for a few years now and obviously he’s played well enough to get a call-up and he played great there. Ever since he’s been down, he’s been going just as hard. He has all the tools of an NHL player and it’s only a matter of time before he’s there full-time.
