Sid Wilson, the 6-foot-7 Class of 2017 wing from St. Raymond's in The Bronx, became the latest New York City standout to transfer to a prestigious out-of-area prep school when he announced he will reclass to the Class of 2018 and attend Brewster (N.H.) Academy.

"The decision to go to Brewster Academy and reclassify to the class of 2018 had to do with fully developing into a wing prospect and being able to make an impact on the next level," Wilson told MADEHoops, which first reported the news. "Coach Jason Smith at Brewster does a great job at getting guys ready for college, so I think he will prepare me for what is next."

He added: "Now being apart of the class of 2018 I will be ready to really make an impact on the college game when that time comes. With the 2017 class I don't think I will have enough time to fully develop my skill to where I would want it to be by the time college comes. Reclassifying to the 2018 class will allow me to grow as a player."

It might not have been as thorough or impressive a win as Saturday, but tonight was certainly an important and necessary moment in the Devils' season. A home-and-home sweep of a Penguins team that came in on a five-game winning streak? Yeah. Solid weekend for the Devils. Some thoughts...

Diversify yo' game: David Clarkson goes in the corners. David Clarkson screens the goalie. David Clarkson backchecks and forechecks. David Clarkson beats goalies high glove side from the slot. David Clarkson bangs home rebounds. Seriously, how good is David Clarkson? He absolutely does it all. He is the epitome of what you want in a true power forward in a game devoid of them. He has the skill and the speed to gather a bouncing puck at his own blue line and skate it into the offensive zone, the strength to keep his balance despite a backchecking defenseman and the deft hands to find open net on a goalie's glove side while skating through the slot. The Son of Clark might be the Devils' second-best offensive player behind Ilya Kovalchuk and you better believe that man is going to paid a salary commensurate with that skill set and level of play.
