BLOG: Seney Making the Most of NHL Opportunity

Recalled on Saturday, Brett Seney was fifth in the AHL in goals and is hoping to bring that production to the NHL

Recalled from Binghamton on Saturday, Brett Seney jumped into his first NHL action of the season. 

"Sometimes that can be a good thing, you don't have too much time to think about it. It's nice to get the butterfly feeling again and have the nerves."

The transition was a relatively easy one for Seney, who is tied for fifth in the AHL in goals with 11 through 19 games this season. 

"It's not too bad in terms of the systems. We run the same things in Binghamton. It's an easy transition," he stated. "We watch a lot of the games down there for the Devils so you're seeing things and picking things up as you go, too."

Seney talked about the influence that Binghamton Devils head coach Mark Dennehy has had on him. 

"He's great for devleoping guys. He's helped me a lot and helped guys down there. he's a great coach, helps guys develop their games and they're picking up steam down there, too."

Seney skated last game with Travis Zajac and Nikita Gusev. He had a previous comfort level with Zajac dating back to last season. 

"I played a couple games with Trav last year. He's so smart and always knows where to be. Real easy guy to play with. He's a very comfortable guy to play with. Same with Goose, I don't know him as well but he's a really smart player and knows how to make plays.

"I gotta be ready whenever he has the puck. There's a couple times last game when he makes a play that you're not really ready for. Moving forward, that's something I've gotta keep an eye on."
