Matt Anderson is finally getting his shot at the NHL!! He's been called up by the Devils for tonight's game against the Bruins. So excited for Matt! I've been waiting for him to get the call ever since the Devs signed him in 2011. He'll be playing on the fourth line with Krys Barch and Jacob Josefson.

This is a much deserved shot. Go UMass!! Go Devils!!

Been a pretty good run for the Minutemen in the NHL so far.

Mike Kostka off to a good start with the Leafs (3 assists), playing on the top D unit with Dion Phaneuf. (Although he and Phaneuf are the two worst players in the league in +/-).

Matt Irwin scored his first goal last weekend with the Sharks. He has been paired with Justin Braun at times.

Of course, Quick.

Now Anderson.

I watch every Sharks game and I can tell you that Matt Irwin should stay in the NHL. I don't know if he will due to a lot of depth on D in SJ but Irwin has been great so far. He has been getting more and more PP time and it is awesome every once in a while when he's paired with Braun.

He's not back in the NHL, but Casey Wellman was traded to the Capitals by the Panthers in exchange for former Bruins No. 1 pick/bust Zach Hamill.

Irwin has been playing great for the Sharks recently. Up to 5 goals, 8 points now in only 19 games. Today, there was even an article on ESPN recommending him for Fantasy Hockey waiver pickups.

Congratulations to him. It's a big loss for next season.

I think that you mean re-signed, right?
