Connecticut Whale right wing Andre Deveaux has been suspended a total of three (3) games – two as a consequence of a boarding incident in a game vs. Springfield on Jan. 7, and one as a consequence of a boarding incident in a game at Springfield on Jan. 8.
Deveaux will miss Connecticut’s games Friday (Jan. 13) and Saturday (Jan. 14) at Norfolk, and Jan. 18 at Portland.
On january 4. they said maybe next week,which was these week.
This week is two days old, "maybe this week" means he might come back some time this week. Last week MZA stated to Norwegian media "probably not this weekend, hopefully the next one".
It's the AHL - not the NHL. You won't get daily injury updates and a few days without news neither means a setback or an improvement. He might be back vs The Admirals, then again they probably won't want to rush him back.
How has Bouchard been for you guys?
Kundratek has been a stud in Hershey and got called up yesterday.
Wondering how Bouchard has worked out since it sounded like Kundratek didn't even have a spot on your AHL team.
or his play during traverse city and camp put him behind other players that outplayed him there and he asked to be traded instead of working thru it and proving he was better than those other guys.
its not like he played great and they still didn't play him to say someone didn't like him
I'm not going to argue with what you are saying there, however you don't start the season as a 5/6 D man in the AHL who then can't make the team at all to being called up to play in the NHL by another team a few months later. There maybe another example of this but something clearly was no right somewhere.
If he had the skill set he should have been persuaded to stay, you do not make it from the AHL to the NHL on work ethic alone. Again I feel that he was allowed to move on because the organization felt that he did not have the skill set needed to make it to the big league.
