Doing this from my phone as this was rather unexpected and I’m out…but the Trenton Devils have acquired goaltender Shane Connelly from the South Carolina Stingrays.
Jeff Lerg was placed on the 21-Day IR. Absolutely no word on what happened as of yet.
Additionally, D Martin Nolet and F Matt Kang were placed on the seven and 21 Day IR, respectively.
You might be surprised if you just look at the numbers, but I love the Connelly acquisition. He was very good both times he replaced Kris Mayotte in Trenton while he was with Johnstown and he put up very good numbers with South Carolina last season after the Chiefs foolishly let him go.
Not particularly sure where Mike Brown fits into the puzzle after Dave Caruso comes back down once Mike McKenna is no longer needed in New Jersey, but I suppose there’s a little time to figure that out.
Additionally, Trenton has brought in Jack Kauffman as an emergency backup goalie.
