I was able to post this to my Twitter account last night, but couldn’t access the blog until this morning…
The Trenton Devils have released forward Carter Lee (pictured, left) and received forward Kevin Cormier.
Lee, a native of Brick, NJ, was brought in by Trenton after being let go by the Johnstown Chiefs. After posting a 0-1-1 line in four games for Johnstown, Lee managed just one point — a goal — in ten games for the T-Devils before being let go.
Cormier officially re-joins the T-Devils after having actually returned to New Jersey several weeks ago after spending some time back home in Canada for reasons unknown. Better known as Corms, he’s played in 12 games between Trenton and AHL Lowell this season, posting zero points and 26 penalty minutes between his two stops.
While the addition of Cormier should satisfy those who enjoy the possibility of some heavyweight fisticuffs taking place, it may not be such a wise idea for head coach Rick Kowalsky to mess with a lineup that seems to have been clicking lately. It’s also uncertain as to what kind of physical condition Cormier is in after being away from the game for several months.
