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.
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 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.
