Didn't see a prospect thread and I don't want to post this info in the AHL thread. All prospect discussion here.

@MattSlovin: David Conte, Vice President of the New Jersey Devils, on negotiations with Michigan's Jon Merrill: "I don't think there are (any)."

@MattSlovin: Conte went on to say that the Devils respect Merrill's decision to remain in a "great" hockey environment in Ann Arbor.

@MattSlovin: Conte's comments certainly point to Merrill remaining at Michigan for his junior year. But Devils are excited about his future upside.

I think he's staying for his junior year and I don't hate it. Get a full, dominant season under your belt and then bring the rain in the pros.

Our last active CHL prospect this season is a dude by the name of Scott Wedgewood. He'll be in net for the Whale tonight against Kitchener in game one of their second round series.

Wedge posted a 4-2 record in the first round to go along with a 2.31 GAA and a .929 SVP.
