After his first year of playing entirely in the minors and getting traded from Minnesota Wild/Houston Aeros to New York Rangers/Connecticut Whale, right wing Nick Palmieri(44) will lace up the skates in Germany’s DEL for EHC München in the upcoming season.
The rangy 6’3″ 220 lbs. winger has played 221 AHL games, 3 seasons with Lowell/Albany Devils with 49 goals and 46 assists in the league, easily less than anticipated from a prospect his size and potential power forward abilities.
In four years of junior hockey in the OHL he always put up decent numbers but again seemed a bit underwhelming.
The 24-year old should be able to become a 1.5 point-per-game guy overseas but we shall see.
All said, we’re still pulling for the guy to break out of his proverbial shell.
