Matt Anderson

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.

Looks like the 30-year-old Anderson is going to make his NHL debut tonight.


As was noted yesterday, it'll be Johan Hedberg in net tonight against Boston.

So about that Bobby Butler guy...


Not quite sure what to make of this. The 30-year-old Anderson has seven goals and 13 assists this season for Albany. He was took part in training camp with the Devils prior to the 2010-11 season, but has never played an NHL game. For more info on Anderson, visit his AHL bio page here. As for Butler not getting the call, it's a little confusing, although it makes sense when you notice he started training camp on the top line and ended on the last. He obviously struggled to impress on an NHL level and they may want someone more steady and defensively responsible to play on the last two lines.
