The New Jersey Devils have made some more roster cuts early this afternoon, reducing their roster number down to 28. Head coach Pete Deboer & Co. Still have a lot of work to do, as they will have to eat the magic number down to 23 before opening night on October 3 against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The list of players assigned to Albany:
Goaltender- Scott Wedgewood
Defensemen- Jon Merrill, Eric Gelinas, Brandon Burlon
Forwards- Stefan Matteau, Rod Pelley, Mike Sislo, Tim Sestito.
Assigned to Juniors- Defensman Damon Severson (Kelowna Rockets, WHL)
Some of the players of above will play out the 2013/2014 season in Albany. Do not be surprised if you see two or three of these names back with the big club very soon. New Jersey will make more cuts as early as tomorrow night as they end their preseason when they play host to the Philadelphia Flyers.
