Dan Kelly(28) Albany Devils

New Jersey Devils‘ 3rd year, undrafted defenseman Dan Kelly(28) is entering the final season of his 3-year entry level deal he signed at the conclusion of his junior career in 2010.

He has thus far spent his entire pro campaign with their AHL affiliate Albany Devils and although he may be far from tearing up the scoresheet putting up points he is about as accountable on the ice as you can get with a team that has struggled to win games.

His +16 plus/minus is the type of stat that may just keep the 6’1″ 195 lbs. d-man in the system for another year as he approaches restricted free agent status.

In 129 AHL games, the still very young 23-year old has 4 goals and 11 assists.

He’s definitely found it a bit tougher to crack the depth chart on the minor league squad this season with the NHL lockout still in full effect, having only appear in half of the regular season schedule so far.
