Jamie Devane(24) Milwaukee Admirals


Toronto Maple Leafs quickly added a couple of seasons extension to rugged left wing Jamie Devane(24) 3-year entry level deal keeping him with the team through 2016.

The 6’4″ 220 lbs. presence made his first NHL appearance early in 2013, playing a couple contests registering no points before being returned to AHL affiliate Toronto Marlies.

He put up career highs in almost every category in his 2nd pro campaign but maybe most noteworthy was an additional 100+ penalty minutes he added to his stats.

The 23-year old has definitely shown the ability to help his squad on the score sheet, as he did in his final pair of OHL seasons with Plymouth Whalers but may be looked at on the pro level more for his toughness factor.

As a big guy on ice he should use his stature to become more of a power forward force and could use a little extra coaching to keep putting more pucks on the net. He was credited with only 33 shots on goal in 2013/2014.

Original story: 9/28-14

His game slid in 2014/2015 with only 2 assists in 39 games and with a month left in the regular season he was all done for the season due to a hip injury that required surgery.

Seems like it could have been nagging him for sometime before he was put on the injured list.

With a year left on his current deal he was traded to Nashville Predators for 2015/2016 and will probably start with affiliate Milwaukee Admirals but could easily get recalled and contribute nicely on the Western Conference squad.
