Devils Notes (Part 2): McAmmond Ready To Play Tomorrow; Nets Moving To Prudential Center

Dean McAmmond, who left Sunday night’s game against Edmonton after a hit from Zach Stortini, expects to play tomorrow night against the Rangers.

McAmmond told Tom Gulitti he sustained a neck stinger after being hit into the boards near the Devils bench. The Devils’ center immediately went to the bench and down the tunnel to the locker room. He didn’t return, although he wanted to return. The Devils trainers, however, advised him not to because he lost strength in his arm and neck.

McAmmond believes the injury is at 95 percent.

********************

This is a bit of old news, but it somehow passed by me this weekend. The Nets and Devils reached an agreement to bring New Jersey’s basketball team to the Prudential Center for the next two years. The Nets, who wanted to move to Newark earlier, faced a $7 million buyout from their lease of the Izod Center. New governor Chris Christie brokered a deal between the team and the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority, allowing the team to only pay $4 million to move. The Nets could pay some of the deal in paid advertising, suite revenue and other credits.

Newark Mayor Corey Booker had fought for the move since 2007, when the Devils moved to the Prudential Center. He believes the Nets can serve as an example to other NBA teams looking to relocate to the area.

The Nets will stay at The Rock for two years, when they expect the Barclays Center to be open in Brooklyn.
