Laval Rocket 7th year defenseman Eric Gelinas(2) signed his first minor league deal since being a New Jersey Devils‘ 2nd round pick in the 2009 draft (#54 overall) and going on to play 3 full seasons in the NHL.

He did relatively well in 2013/2014 scoring 7 goals and 22 assists in 60 games with a -3 but his numbers dropped to 6 goals, 13 assists in 61 appearances for the next campaign.

The big 6’4″ 225 lbs. blue liner was dealt to Colorado Avalanche shortly after signing a tidy two-year deal and things continue to go south, as he was reassigned down to affiliate San Antonio Rampage for a split session.

At 26-years old he found himself as an unrestricted free agent invited to attend Montreal Canadiens‘ training camp but was released and reported to their affiliate, where he agreed to terms.

It’s highly doubtful the former 2011 QMJHL Champion will stick around for more than a single season, as heading over to Europe would likely see him play a bit higher level of hockey and give him more money.
