Scoring breakdown for Albany Devils' preseason

The Albany Devils wrapped up their preseason schedule with a 6-3 loss at Binghamton on Saturday, but it was the only loss among the four games and/or scrimmages they played during the exhibition schedule.

Here's a breakdown of the individual scoring for the Devils through the four games, listed from most points to fewest like this - Name goals-assists, games played; Name ...:

Brandon Burlon 1-3, 3gm; Raman Hrabarenka 1-3, 3gm; Mike Sislo 3-0, 3gm; Harri Pesonen 1-2, 3gm; David Wohlberg 2-0, 3gm; Scott Parse 1-1, 3 gm; Jacob Josefson 1-1, 2gm; Adam Larsson 0-2, 2gm; Chad Wiseman 0-2, 2gm; Bobby Butler 1-0, 1gm; Mattias Tedenby 1-0, 1gm; Darcy Zajac 1-0, 3gm; Phil DeSimone 0-1, 3gm; Mike Hoeffel 0-1, 3gm; Steve Zalewski 0-1, 2gm; Tim Sestito 0-1, 3gm; Jean-Sebastien Berube 0-1, 2gm; Alexandre Carrier 0-1, 2gm.

Albany scored four power-play goals and three shorthanded goals in these four games, with six of their 13 scores coming at even strength.

Non-scoring players and games played were: Bryan Haczyk, 1gm; Chris McKelvie, 3gm; Matt Anderson, 2gm; Joe Whitney, 2gm; Harry Young, 3gm; Adam Henrique, 1gm; Matthew Corrente, 1gm; Eric Gelinas, 3gm; Jay Leach, 3gm; Dan Kelly, 3gm; Corbin McPherson, 3gm; Alexander Urbom, 2gm; Eric Baier, 1gm.

Goalie save stats: Keith Kinkaid made three appearances, and Scott Wedgewood made two appearances - in one of the games they split, there are no individual save statistics available, but they combined for 45 stops on 48 shots. In Kinkaid's two other games, he made 23 saves on 25 shots (.920 save percentage), and in Wedgewood's other appearance, he stopped all 16 shots he faced (1.000). Jeff Frazee made two appearances and made 34 saves on 38 shots (.895). Maxime Clermont made one appearance and stopped eight of nine shots (.889).

And here's a bit of a surprise, although it makes sense given the organization's depth at the blueline ... Harry Young is now a left wing. Young didn't catch on as a regular defenseman with Albany last year, and until I speak with him when the Devils come to Albany on Tuesday, I'll have to assume he just felt this was his best shot at remaining in the top functioning North American hockey league this season.

I'll be at their on-ice workouts Tuesday and Thursday, so check back for blogs in the afternoon or evening those days.
