Cohen Called Up To Lowell

A relatively weak defensive core has suffered another blow, as Matt Cohen has been summoned back to Lowell after just two games with Trenton.

Cohen’s power play wrist shot seemed to have eyes last night, finding a hole through Wheeling goalie Jordan Parise and cutting Trenton’s deficit to just two goals.  It seemed to spark a third period rally, allowing the team to come all the way back to force a 5-5 tie, overtime and eventually a shootout.

Cohen started the season with Lowell, the Devils AHL affiliate, and played in five games without recording a point before being sent back down to Trenton.

Last night’s power play goal was the only tally Cohen recorded in two games with the team, although he did post a 12-35-47 line with the T-Devils last season.

Matt Torti, who was a healthy scratch last night, will most likely jump back into the lineup for tomorrow night’s tilt against the Johnstown Chiefs, who also have some defensive news of their own.

The Chiefs, who recently announced a working agreement with the NHL’s Minnesota Wild, have brought back Trevor Hendrikx.  He is expected to make like Barney Stinson and “suit up” for the Chiefs on Friday.

    Watching Matt last night I knew he wouldn’t be back long. Now would be a good time for a strong game from Torti…

    there’s always a first I guess it could happen.

  3. titans04 Says:

    Cohen being called up is based on injuries and call-ups in Lowell.

    Yeah, but Cohen was called up before the injury to Oduya, eh? So who’s next? The weekend’s shaping up to be a horror show on ice, from top to bottom. Fitting that it’s Halloween.

    I’ll likely mention something tomorrow on the blog, but I’ll be at the game…but I won’t.

    I’m writing the game story for the Trentonian tomorrow, so I likely won’t be doing any sort of blogging from the game…but what I will do is pass on anything I don’t use in the paper after the game. So any videos, probably any photos, and any quotes. For anything else, I’ll send you over to my sure to be brilliant game story haha.

    I get the Oduya thing I was referring to Cory Murphy being brought up from Lowell to replace Martin. Flynn apparenlty is a mirage hence Cohen going back up to fill the Murphy hole.
