The New Jersey Devils have added a goalie, inking Scott Clemmensen to a one-year, two-way deal, per NorthJersey.com.
Clemmensen, who spent five of his first six seasons with New Jersey, split last year between Florida and its AHL affiliate in San Antonio. He went 6-7-1 with the Panthers, posting a .896 save percentage and 3.09 GAA while playing out the final of a two-year, $2.4 million deal.
The 36-year-old now heads to New Jersey to battle for the backup gig behind Cory Schneider (safely assuming Martin Brodeur doesn’t return) with the likes of AHL Albany goalies Scott Wedgewood and Keith Kinkaid.
It’s possible the Devils could go out and audition another goalie for the No. 2 gig but, between Clemmensen and Wedgewood and Kinkaid, they do appear to be reasonably set in goal.
Despite tough fight, Stars hand Wild their sixth straight loss
This dominant win is a heck of a way for the Kings to begin an imposing seven-game road trip, which continues against the New York Islanders on Thursday. The Bruins probably want to burn the tape on this one themselves, as they’re about to head on a six-game road trip.
Per @EliasSports: @LAKings had 9 different skaters score in a game for 5th time in franchise history. Last: Jan. 21, 1987 vs. PIT (10-5 W).
Some hockey players resist the urge to wear a visor, at least if they’re given that choice.
Perhaps a few will say “Hey, Nathan Beaulieu will just punch it off anyway.”
Maybe not, but Beaulieu provided a rather unique moment in his fight with Cedric Paquette during the Montreal Canadiens – Tampa Bay Lightning game. You can watch that bout in the video above, and see a cut on the Lightning pest’s face from that blow.
