The Trenton Devils have released forward Matthew Kang, who tallied three assists in four games with the team this season.
Kang, just 22 years old, signed with the Trenton Devils this off-season after splitting his first full pro season with the Las Vegas Wranglers and Johnstown Chiefs. It’s been an uphill battle for him all season, as he was one of the last players to make the team and was a healthy scratch on opening night.
He’s been out since suffering an apparent head injury late in the October 29 game against Gwinnett — a game in which he played well — but was with the team as recently as last night in the locker room.
I can’t figure this one out. Not sure if his injury was more serious than anyone was led to believe, or if there just wasn’t room for him (which is about impossible considering this team is as shorthanded as they’ve been all year and he earned a spot on this team) or what the deal was, but I think a lot of people are going to be left wondering why this happened.
