Vokes Placed On 21-Day IR

Matt Vokes has been placed on the 21-Day IR by the Trenton Devils with an undisclosed injury.  He appeared to suffer a leg injury of some sorts during the opening night loss on Saturday to Kalamazoo.

As of now, the Devils only have nine healthy forwards and seven defensemen.  For those new to the ECHL, teams dress 10 forwards and six defensemen per game.  So unless they’re able to add another forward before Wednesday’s game, they’ll pretty much have to dress nine forwards and seven D — or every healthy player they have.

Tyler Burton?  Paging Tyler Burton…will Tyler Burton please pick up the white courtesy phone?

    Don’t even think they have 7 healthy D or at least didn’t on Sunday they only dressed 6 so we were a man down going into the game. Anybody remember how many games Henkel played last season?

    He played all 72 games last year… don’t get me started on why he isn’t playing… Chris Lamoriello seems to favor undersized forwards from Hockey East with subpar stats.

    Just a brutal decision, he deserves better. Leadership they won’t be able to replace.

    Kory Nagy was sent down today.
