Now in their second season as the top AHL affiliate of the New Jersey Devils, the Albany Devils have officially traded their pitchforks for hockey sticks as they continue to scorch the ice toward a potential playoff berth. Through 64 games, the Devils have glided into the Eastern Conference behind right winger Joe Whitney, whose 13 goals and incandescent helmet have led the way to 27 victories thus far. Center Steve Zalewski has chipped in 35 points of his own, and rookie goalie Keith Kinkaid marks his territory nightly by barricading the net with his collection of youth-league trophies just one year after steering Union College to its most successful campaign in school history.
Across the ice, the Adirondack Phantoms lumber into Times Union Square harboring one of the league’s top rookie scorers, Jason Akeson. From red- or black-section seats, Devils backers can hiss and holler at the conference rivals before trading their souvenir poster, hat, and program to the Devil Dawg in exchange for his secret to perfectly filed horns.
