Man this kid put up some incredible numbers last year and is having a pretty good one this year. Haven't heard much about little Joe. I know he's listed at 5.9ft., and we already have one of those (Gionta). As anyone seen Joey play and what's your opinion of him? Thanks!
I think Tenute could make it, there is no reason why he shouldn't be in the AHL at the moment. He may be small but he plays gritty and is fast. Has a nice shot also.
To me, the fact that he has a strong shot is what is going to make this kid. I've never seen him play, but the days of the power forward being the ONLY scoring forwards are long gone. He could have a decent future with the Devils if he continues to develop. As long as the kid backchecks, I'm sure he can make the jump eventually.
Us sheltered Devils fans in Calgary don't get alot of exposure to the devs except for this forum but who is tenute and where is he playing?
Here's some info from 2004:
