** The Trenton Devils are now a part of the newly formed East Division in the American Conference. They’ll be joined by the Elmira Jackals, Johnstown Chiefs and Reading Royals.
** The ECHL released their schedule recently as well. The Devils will open at home on October 17th, hosting Kalamazoo.
Here’s the Trenton Devils 2009-10 schedule. South Carolina comes in again this season, as does Florida and Toledo. They go to Gwinnett and Charlotte, but neither team comes up here.
** According to the ECHL website, the Trenton Devils have made qualifying offers to the following eight players: Jeremy Akeson, Scott Bartlett, Justin Coutu, Charlie Effinger, Dan Eves, Thomas Harrison, David Leaderer and Dylan Quaile.
See a complete list of players who were made qualifying offers here.
** Looks like Kevin Cormier will be back with the Devils organization as well, at least according to this article.
** I don’t want to go all Brett Favre on everyone, but at this point, I’m leaning towards returning for the 2009-10 season. At least in some form, anyway. Probably will need to have some discussions with team officials before anything happens one way or the other — and will also need to see what my future plans are as well — but I would like to come back.
I’d also like to not have to do this for free, so that plays a role too…
