The Devils finally bolstered their scoring on the wing! Wait, the season's already over and playoffs already started? Bummer, dude. I'm kidding, of course, but they did sign a scoring winger to a two-year deal Thursday.

Depending on what the Devils do in free agency, Whitney should get a chance to compete for a roster spot in training camp next year.

No Albany Devil has recorded more points in two years than Joe Whitney.

The 5-6, 170-pound winger's game is tenacious and feisty. Playing such a game has enabled him to record 85 points in 122 AHL games in Albany.

"He's playing with intensity, he's competing," Albany coach Rick Kowalsky said Sunday after Albany's 2-0 loss to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. "He's not a big guy, but he's strong on the puck. He's been doing it all for us.

The Albany Devils' power play ranks 28th out of 30 American Hockey League teams-- firing at just 11.4 percent. Albany entered Sunday's game in Bridgeport having scored just 1-of-its-last-20 man advantages.

Yet, somehow Albany's power play found a way to be worse.

Albany was 0-for-3, failing to score on a 5-minute first-period major. Plus, when given a third-period man advantage, the Devils surrendered a shorthanded goal-- the game-winner in the Bridgeport Sound Tigers' 2-0 win.
