I don't know if this has been posted before, or if this is old news, cause I swear that DeMarchi was sent down some time ago, but I saw this on USATODAY's website, in their daily transactions page:
http://www.usatoday.com/sports/st.htm

New Jersey Devils - Assigned the following players to Albany of the
American Hockey League: goaltenders Scott Clemmensen and Matus
Kostur; defensemen Alex Brooks, Phil Cole, Matt DeMarchi, Mike
Matteucci, Krisjanis Redlihs and Victor Uchevatov; left wings Maxim
Balmochnykh, Scott Cameron, Brett Clouthier, Greg Crozier, Joe
Hulbig, Steve Kariya and Ahren Nittel; and centers Craig Darby,
Steve Guolla, Chris Hartsburg, Eric Johansson and Ryan Murphy;
assigned right wing Cam Janssen and center Joey Tenute to their
junior teams; released right wing Erik Jensen.

So who does that leave in camp? When will final cuts be made?
