Anthony Brodeur among 21 reassigned by Devils

The New Jersey Devils reassigned 21 players on Friday, sending 15 to their American Hockey League affiliate and six others to their respective junior teams.

Goaltender Anthony Brodeur, taken in the final round of the 2013 NHL Draft, fell into the latter group, as he was sent back to Gatineau of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Also returned to juniors were forwards Myles Bell (Kelowna, Western Hockey League), Graham Black (Swift Current, WHL), Remy Giftopoulos (Windsor, Ontario Hockey League), Ben Johnson (Windsor, OHL) and Ryan Kujawinski (Kingston, OHL).

Forward Reid Boucher, who scored 62 goals last season for the Sarnia Sting of the OHL to break Steven Stamkos' team record, was sent to Albany along with goaltender Maxime Clermont; defensemen Seth Helgeson, Raman Hrabarenka, Dan Kelly, Corbin McPherson, and Reece Scarlett; and forwards Riley Boychuk, Mike Hoeffel, Chris McKelvie, Harri Pesonen, Ben Thomson, Joe Whitney, David Wohlberg, and Darcy Zajac.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
