Week 12 Primer

Devils Quick Hits:

-Albany returns from the Christmas break with a record of 13-10-1-4, good for 31 points and 4th place in the Northeast Division (8th in the Eastern Conference).

-A lot of Thruway travel for Tim Sestito this week.  He and Mike Sislo returned to the Albany roster on Sunday after both appeared in Saturday’s loss to the Capitals.  But Sestito was right back in New Jersey on Monday, and in the lineup for the Devils’ shootout loss to Carolina on Tuesday.  He was then reassigned to Albany on Wednesday.  So we’ll see if he’s still around this weekend or if he ends up in New York on Saturday when New Jersey travels to MSG to take on the Rangers.

-Per the AHL transactions, Maxime Clermont has been recalled from Orlando.  Stay tuned as to who he will be sitting in for.
