4:00 PM — Shane Connelly backing up, by the way…
3:55 PM — Albany’s game in Atlantic City could be postponed…I spoke to a friend at the game, and he told me that the ice started breaking up in the first few minutes of warmups. Chris Bombulie, Wilkes-Barre Scranton’s beat writer, and Susan Lulgjuraj of the Press of AC are on the story on Twitter if you wish to follow it.
Trenton’s scheduled to play there on January 23rd. A game postponement in AC would be a devastating blow to a city desperately trying to get a team there, I’ll say that much.
3:45 PM — Here’s DeMichiel…
And here’s Dan Eves, who certainly hasn’t been forgotten, it seems…
3:40 PM — Dave Caruso vs. Jared DeMichiel (thank goodness) is your goalie matchup…Miller was acquired in a trade with the Jackals, by the way. Likely some rolls of tape, a few sticks and a few tires for the bus. Trades in this league are next to never actually trades. Usually, it’s an exchange of cash.
2:05 PM — The Trenton Devils have added D Brad Miller, who played in six games this season with Elmira, and have received goaltender Dave Caruso from AHL Albany. Miller, who is in his second pro season after playing collegiately at North Dakota, will wear #20. He posted a 2-1-3 line with the Jackals.
Just got here, so I know even less than I usually would…which is never much for pre-game with there being no access to players or coaches.
This game also marks the return of Dan Eves, who spent most of the last two seasons in Trenton. He’s got just two assists in nine games so far this year. Call-ups to AHL Hershey have left the Stingrays with a pretty bare bones roster. Dylan Yeo and Nikita Kashirsky were both summoned to the next level recently.
I’ll be celebrating my 28th birthday with a story in tomorrow’s Trentonian…so I won’t have anything in-game outside of any relevant video and so on. I’ll update this with starting goalies if I can.
