WESTMINSTER, CO - Playing in his second season of pro, Mike McLeod was recalled to the NHL for the first time this season this past Tuesday. 

"It's great seeing everyone again and I'm just happy to be here," McLeod said after practice in Denver on Thursday, adding that he feels the season is going well for the club down in Binghamton. 

"We're getting better and the team's getting better. I'm feeling like I'm growing as a player, kinda still still developing that center role and we're having some tough games, but we're always getting better."

As for his game itself, he said he's been trying to work on being a complete center on both sides of the ice. 

"Not trying to do too much, kind of getting in those holes and making quick plays, using my wingers and driving the middle. I've just been being more responsible."

McLeod has four goals and 13 points in 24 games with the AHL Devils.
