Devils have recalled forwards Jacob Josefson and Tim Sestito, and defenseman Matt Corrente from Albany (AHL). #njdevils— New Jersey Devils (@NHLDevils) October 14, 2010
Per @NHLDevils, the Devils have recalled Jacob Josefson, Matt Corrente and Tim Sestito after placing Brian Rolston on LTIR yesterday. Instant Reaction: A little surprising. I had thought Vladimir Zharkov and David McIntyre would be the call ups and possibly Corrente (depending on the status of Anton Volchenkov). Corrente gives the Devils a little more depth on the blue line and will be able to make a case that he deserves to be on the NHL roster. Sestito, much like last year, will be energy off the bench in a fourth line role. It will be interesting to see how Josefson fits in. Does he get 3rd line minutes or will he need to get a promotion from the 4th line? If he is instantly on the third line that sets up the fourth line at Adam Mair/Rod Pelley/Tim Sestito, which isn't terrible. One plus to having Mair/Pelley on the fourth line is that you can still utilize them on the PK without overplaying them. That said, I think Pelley has been really good the past two games and that the 3rd line/4th line minutes should be based upon the flow of the game.
