The Devils' AHL affiliate in Albany will relocate to Binghamton, NY for the 2017-18 season, the team announced Tuesday.
"After evaluating multiple scenarios and obtaining the approval of the AHL Board of Governors, we have agreed to partner with a local operating group in Binghamton, NY to relocate our AHL franchise for the 2017-18 season," Hugh Weber, President of the Devils and Prudential Center, said in a statement. "The new arrangement will allow the organization to focus its efforts on developing our player prospects, while leaving the business operations to those with expertise in the market."
The Devils' AHL affiliate has been located in Albany since 2010. They were also affiliated with an Albany-based AHL team -- the Albany River Rats -- from 1993 to 2006.
