Pregame vs. Albany 10/26
Big news in the hockey world today, obviously, is the National Hockey League cancelling the entire month of November on the schedule. Between the alredy-axed games in October and these ones, we've lost more than a quarter of the NHL season. Statements from the NHL and NHLPA executives.
In pertinent AHL news, training camp invitee (and former Albany defenseman) Mike Banwell has signed a PTO with Worcester. The Devils assigned left wing Chris McKelvie and defenseman-turned-left-wing Harry Young to Trenton earlier today. They still have 29 guys on the roster.
One change in Adirondack's lines: Cullen Eddy, usually paired with Oliver Lauridsen, didn't take warm-ups. Forward lines are the same as we've seen since Wednesday. Albany has one to scratch.
Referees: Chris Brown, Ryan Hersey. Linesmen: Jim Harper, Derek Wahl.
