The twenty-eighth week of the 2017-18 prospect update is here. It’s highlighted by the Devils signing Joey Anderson to an ELC, Marian Studenic and Colby Sissons find themselves advancing in CHL action, and the likes of Michael McLeod, Brett Seney, and Cam Johnson see their seasons end with the conclusion of Binghamton’s campaign.

On Sunday, the Devils signed Joey Anderson to a three-year, entry level contract which starts with the 2017-18 season. Julie Robenhymer has this article where Devils assistant general manager Tom Fitzgerald talks about Anderson. Here is what some of what he said, but I recommend checking out the whole article:

”He just has a drive to do the hard work,” he said. “You don’t ever have to ask him. He just does it and does a really good job at it, winning those 50/50 puck battles, and then he’s got some real good skill in tight areas to be able to generate something out of it, but his compete is top of the list for us. He’s a self-starter. He doesn’t need anyone to get him going and we know he’s going to bring that effort every day whether that’s at practice, in the weight room or in a game.”

Cam Johnson made 2 more starts for Binghamton before their season came to an end. He made 31 saves on 33 shots in an overtime loss to Hartford on Friday. He then made 25 saves on 29 shots in an overtime loss to Utica on Sunday. He went 0-1-2 in 3 games with a 3.90 GAA and .876 SV%.
