In an article on the Devils’ official app today discussing the team’s practice this morning before heading to Columbus for Saturday’s game at the Blue Jackets, team reporter Catherine Bogart mentioned some roster changes New Jersey made prior to taking the ice.
Alexander Holtz and Kevin Bahl were reassigned to the Utica Comets of the American Hockey League while AJ Greer and Colton White were recalled from Utica.
Bogart mentioned that Greer and White were joined by Jesper Boqvist, Nolan Foote, Christian Jaros, Marian Studenic, Ty Smith and Jon Gillies for practice today.
Chalk this up to other news that I neglected to mention last week. in addition to being named the NHL’s Second Star of the Week, the NHLPA tweeted on January 3 that Jack Hughes was named the NHLPA’s Player of the Week.
That achievement was based on having multi-point games in the Devils’ three wins for that week. He was tied for first in NHL scoring with two-straight three-point games against the Buffalo Sabres and the Edmonton Oilers.
Off course, he added a multi-point game (a goal and two assists for three points) last night in the Devils’ 3-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.
The Devils will be at it again tomorrow night this time in Columbus in the Ohio-half of a home-and-home with the Blue Jackets.
