The Devils have sent Rod Pelley, Mark Fraser and a 7th Round Pick to the Anaheim Ducks for defenseman Kurtis Foster and goaltender Timo Pielmeier.
This is an upgrade for the Devils on defense and gives them a right handed shot from the point on the power play thanks to Foster. So far this season Foster has 1 goal and 1 assist in 9 games this season with the Ducks. Hopefully he can contribute more with the Devils. He is expected to join the team in Florida tomorrow.
Pielmeier is expected to go down to one of the Devils’ farm teams. He was playing in the ECHL with the Elmira Jackals. We shall see where he lands exactly soon.
Today the Devils placed Mark Fraser and Rod Pelley on waivers. If they are claimed off waivers they will have to play for that particular club. If they are not claimed by tomorrow they will remain on the NHL roster.
Eric Boulton will be replacing Rod Pelley in the lineup tonight against the Nashville Predators.
Rod Pelley and Cam Janssen will be in the lineup tonight against the Los Angeles Kings. They will be replacing Eric Boulton and Adam Henrique on the 4th line. Mark Fraser will be a healthy scratch.
