Going Local

Looks like a quick lunch hour post for me…and for good reason. New Jersey announced what was first rumored over the weekend…the signing of goalie Keith Kinkaid to a 3 year entry level contract for next season. It’s kind of a big deal here, considering Kinkaid just finished an outstanding sophomore season at Union College. He won the Ken Dryden Award, which honors the top goaltender in the ECAC, compiling a 25-10-3 record, 3 shutouts and a 1.99 GAA.

The big question here is where he fits in as far as the Devils roster goes. You have Johan Hedberg and Mike McKenna as unrestricted free agents, Jeff Frazee is a RFA. You also have a capable goalie in Dave Caruso, and prospect Scott Wedgewood is waiting in the wings in juniors. Depending on what happens to Hedberg and McKenna, there is a good chance Kinkaid could be in an Albany uniform come October. But we’ll see how things play out when training camp arrives in September.

Okay, back to work…just had to do the quick post on this…
