After the Devils announced the disbanding of the Trenton Devils back in July, they were left without an ECHL affiliate. This evening though, the Devils have announced an official partnership with the Kalamazoo Wings.
Kalamazoo, who is also the ECHL affiliate of the Vancouver Canucks, will also be the affiliate of the Albany Devils as well.
Last season, Kalamazoo clinched the North Division with a record of 40-24-2. The Wings made it to the Kelly Cup finals, where they faced off against the Alaska Aces. They lost the series 4-1.
Per the New Jersey Devils:
“The development of our players at every level has always been a top priority for our organization,” said Lamoriello. “We look forward to working with the Kalamazoo Wings to help strengthen this process.”
“We are honored to be associated with two of the most prestigious organizations in the NHL (New Jersey and Vancouver),” said K-Wings President Paul L. Pickard. “The Devils have created a culture of winning through their affiliations and we are delighted to be working with them to help develop their players.”
