Former first-round draft pick Matteau among 8 players sent to Albany by new-look Devils

NEWARK, N.J. - Former first-round draft pick Stefan Matteau was among eight players sent to Albany of the AHL by the New Jersey Devils.

President and general manager Lou Lamoriello announced the moves on Wednesday, eight days before the season opener at Pittsburgh.

Matteau was the Devils' top pick in 2012 and was on the final roster to start last season. He played in 17 games for New Jersey and had a goal and two assists.

Also assigned to Albany were: goaltender Scott Wedgewood; defencemen Brandon Burlon, Eric Gelinas and Jon Merrill; and forwards Rod Pelley, Tim Sestito and Mike Sislo. Defenceman Damon Severson was returned to Kelowna of the WHL.

The Devils have 28 players on their roster.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
