Three Players Sign Two-Way Deals with the Devils

I’ve been fooling around with the auto-post feature on the site, so this was actually written around 1 PM earlier today and should get up a little bit after 6 PM tonight. Just something I wanted to try that might be of use later on, so this is more of a test.

Anyway, Amanda Stein took to the “Inside the Devils Blog” today to announce that New Jersey General Manager Tom Fitzgerald has announced the re-signing of three players to two-way contracts.

Those three players are Brett Seney, Binghamton Devils captain Ben Street and Josh Jacobs.

Seney, a forward who has played in 51 games at the NHL level in 2018-19 and two in 2019-20 according to Stein, signed a one-year, two-way contract that is worth $700,000 at the NHL level and $250,000 in the American Hockey League. Stein reports that he was Binghamton’s leading scorer with 19 goals, 25 assists and 44 points over 61 AHL games. The 19 goals scored were a career-high mark for him.

Street, who Stein notes was named captain of the B-Devils last season also signed a two-way, one-year deal which is worth $750,000 at the NHL level and $425,000 in the American League. Street was second on Binghamton in scoring, notching 15 goals and 27 assists equaling 42 points over 49 games. Both Seney and Street played a big part in the Binghamton Devils’ success last AHL season prior to the cancelation from an offensive standpoint.

Someone who was big in a defensive role was Josh Jacobs. The Binghamton blueliner signed a one-year, two-way contract worth $700,000 at the NHL level and $130,000 in the AHL. He has nine goals, 44 assists and 53 points in his AHL career noted Stein. She also said that while he has spent the bulk of his career in the AHL, playing 54 games there last year, for instance, he has played in two NHL games, suiting up for the New Jersey club in 2019-20.

2021 US World Junior Team: Moynihan and McCarthy Named to Evaluation Camp

Amanda Stein is reporting on the “Inside the Devils Blog” that “two Devils prospects” (Patrick Moynihan and Case McCarthy) have been “named to [the] preliminary list” of players that could comprise the 2021 United States World Junior team. They are two of 39 players remaining to make Team USA.

Stein reports that Moynihan, a center, played last season as a freshman at Providence College (Hockey East) scoring “21 points in 34 games, including 13 goals.”

McCarthy, a defenseman for Boston University (Hockey East), also just completed his freshman campaign and had “12 points in 32 games.”

Stein wrote that the US National Junior Team evaluation camp will take place from October 8 to 13 in Plymouth, Michigan at the USA Hockey Arena. She further said that the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship will begin on Christmas Day, 2020 and run to January 5 of 2021. The tournament is scheduled to be held in Edmonton and Red Deer, Alberta.
