Trenton Adds Six More

Now the Trenton Devils roster is finally starting to fill out, as the team added six more players today, including the return of goaltender Jason Smith.

Smith made his professional debut with the T-Devils last year after four seasons at Sacred Heart University.  In 35 games, he went 13-18-3 with a 3.13 GAA and 89.9 save percentage.

Lowell assigned the team three other players; forwards Tyler Burton, Eric Castonguay and Trevor Kell.

Burton played six games in Trenton Lowell last year after finishing his collegiate career at Colgate.  He scored a goal and added an assist.

Castonguay spent most of last season in Trenton as a 20-year-old, scoring 47 points on 20 goals and 27 assists.  He also had a brief stint in Lowell as well.

Kell is a former Blackhawks draft pick who also played for the T-Devils last season.  He scored 16 goals and 20 assists in 61 games, and like Castonguay, also had a short stay in Lowell as well.

Forward Chris Poli, who I told you about the other day, and defenseman Matt Torti were also added to the club.

Torti will be making his professional debut after four collegiate seasons at Colgate.  He tallied 11 points in 154 games.

Additionally, the club has released defenseman Grant Clafton, who last played in the ECHL for the Utah Grizzlies during the 2006-07 season.

    Thanks for the update Mike. One quick thing Burton didn’t play any games in Trenton last season. He did play 6 for Lowell after Colgate finished their season.
