The Devils have assigned defenseman Alexander Urbom to Albany (AHL) and recalled D Olivier Magnan-Grenier. #njdevils— New Jersey Devils (@NHLDevils) October 18, 2010
This was a surprise. Urbom had not played great, but I just don't get this move. Hopefully Rich Chere or Tom Gulitti can find out why this move was made. I will update later with any new info.
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........
