Nick Palmieri Assigned to Albany Devils


Has 3 goals and 3 assists in 19 games with 35 shots with New Jersey. He was scratched in the game earlier this week in Florida. From Gulitti - here's his reaction. Days before that - he scored two goals against Boston while playing with Zach Parise and Adam Henrique. Had a breakthrough rookie season last year mostly playing with Ilya Kovalchuk and Travis Zajac. This season he's had his up and downs. Playing on all four lines this season - he hasn't played up to his expectations fans or the coaches wanted. This is good for him to get some good ice time in the AHL and hopefully some confidence to help strengthen his game and overall play.
