Urbom Gets The Call

With the New Jersey Devils defense still ailing, rookie Alexander Urbom was called up to join New Jersey.

In 40 games this season for Albany of the AHL, Urbom recorded 14 points (one goal, 13 assists) and 29 penalty minutes. He was a minus-5 this season.

Urbom played seven games with the Devils earlier this season. He failed to record a point and was a minus-3.

The rookie defenseman believes his time in the AHL helped him develop.

“It’s good when you play a lot,” he said to Tom Gulitti of The Bergen Record. “When you get a lot of ice time, it’s great. That’s what develops you as a player. When you get a lot of ice time and power play (time) and stuff like that, it’s good.”

Despite the call-up, the Devils have only six healthy defenseman available for tonight’s game. Mark Fayne is still battling the flu, and Colin White remains sidelined with a lower-body bruise.
