Coleman Sent Down From Lowell

coleman21The Trenton Devils have received goaltender Gerald Coleman from AHL Lowell.  With three goaltenders there and Mike McKenna getting off to a hot start, the move seemed inevitable.

Coleman played in three games for Lowell this season, going 1-2 with a 4.28 GAA and 87.3 save percentage.

The real numbers to look at here are what he did for Trenton last season…after coming over from Phoenix, Coleman posted a 28-7-2 mark with a 2.38 goals against average and 91.5 save percentage.  He was in contention for the league’s Goalie of the Year Award, and was largely credited with turning Trenton’s season completely around.

Coleman will undoubtedly take over the starting reigns from Dave Caruso, but also gives Trenton a very solid 1-2 combo in net.

In other news, defenseman John Wessbecker was placed on the IR without having played a game.  Perhaps he is suffering from a wicked case of jetlag or indigestion from the Taco Bell next to the arena.
