The New Jersey Devils have reassigned defenseman Raman Hrabarenka to Albany from Elmira (ECHL). Additionally, New Jersey reassigned goaltender Maxime Clermont from Albany to Elmira.
Of the nine defensemen in Albany, not one is shorter than six foot. Seth Helgeson, Corbin McPherson and Harry Young are 6′ 5″ and Eric Gelinas, Raman Habarenka and Jon Merrill are 6′ 4″. Round out the group are Dan Kelly and Reece Scarlett at 6′ 1″ and Brandon Burlon at 6′ 0″.
There is more than one way to make it to the professional level. Just ask the 20 players who participated in the Devils training camp session Monday morning.
