Lou Lamoriello confirms re-signing of D Matt Corrente, plus signings of RW Alexandre Carrier and C Phil DeSimone to AHL contracts.— Tom Gulitti (@TGfireandice) July 26, 2012
On Twitter, Tom Gulitti confirmed the Devils re-signed Matthew Corrente to a 1 year, 2-way deal worth NHL minimum per CapGeek. In addition, Albany has signed right winger Alexandre Carrier and center Phil DeSimone. Additionally, the Devils have interest in the still-free-agent Petr Sykora.
Devils have recalled forwards Jacob Josefson and Tim Sestito, and defenseman Matt Corrente from Albany (AHL). #njdevils— New Jersey Devils (@NHLDevils) October 14, 2010
Per @NHLDevils, the Devils have recalled Jacob Josefson, Matt Corrente and Tim Sestito after placing Brian Rolston on LTIR yesterday. Instant Reaction: A little surprising. I had thought Vladimir Zharkov and David McIntyre would be the call ups and possibly Corrente (depending on the status of Anton Volchenkov). Corrente gives the Devils a little more depth on the blue line and will be able to make a case that he deserves to be on the NHL roster. Sestito, much like last year, will be energy off the bench in a fourth line role. It will be interesting to see how Josefson fits in. Does he get 3rd line minutes or will he need to get a promotion from the 4th line? If he is instantly on the third line that sets up the fourth line at Adam Mair/Rod Pelley/Tim Sestito, which isn't terrible. One plus to having Mair/Pelley on the fourth line is that you can still utilize them on the PK without overplaying them. That said, I think Pelley has been really good the past two games and that the 3rd line/4th line minutes should be based upon the flow of the game.
Devils have assigned G-Mike McKenna, D- Matt Corrente, C- Jacob Josefson, RW-Mattias Tedenby to Albany (AHL). Rob Davison placed on waivers.— New Jersey Devils (@NHLDevils) October 4, 2010
Per @NHLDevils, the Devils have assigned Mike McKenna, Matthew Corrente, Jacob Josefson, Mattias Tedenby to Albany of the AHl. Rob Davison is on waivers. Instant Reaction: Davison on waivers and Tedenby/McKenna being assigned to Albany I expected. Corrente and Josefson were surprising to me. Could it be that theirentry level deals proved problematic when compared with a $500K deal that a Mark Fraser or Matt Taormina has? Well Alexander Urbom is still here...... Of course the roster isnt final yet and Corrente or Josefson could come right back to New Jersey, but I thought Josefson was set at the third line center. I do not think that Adam Mair is the answer at third line center. Can I start the Brendan Morrison speculation now? Or should we wait for a day? Assuming Bryce Salvador and Anssi Salmela both start the year on LTIR, the defensemen currently in camp are: Anton Volchenkov, Henrik Tallinder, Colin White, Andy Greene, Mark Fraser, Alexander Urbom, Matt Taormina That third pairing is sure going to be interesting........
