Scott Wedgewood would have to clear waivers if he doesn't make the Devils' opening game roster.

Keith Kinkaid and Anders Lindback (PTO) are Wedgewood's competitors for the backup job, so if waivers weren't a factor Wedgewood probably wouldn't end up with an opening game roster spot. There is a chance he'd clear waivers anyways if he was exposed to them, but another team might be interested in grabbing him due to his upside. The 24-year-old had a 1.55 GAA and .933 save percentage in 22 AHL contests last season along with a 1.24 GAA and .957 save percentage in four starts with the Devils.

Scott Wedgewood will make his NHL debut Sunday against Columbus.

Scott Wedgewood has been summoned up to New Jersey on Sunday.

The 23-year-old prospect has posted a nice season for AHL Albany. He's gone 9-2-3 with just 25 goals against in 16 games. Given how you may feel about the Devils overall as squad however, his potential production is dubious at best through the end of the season.

Scott Wedgewood is excited to be in the fight for the Devils' backup job.

It will probably go to Scott Clemmensen or Keith Kinkaid, but the 22-year-old Wedgewood can't be ruled out. "I want to play," Wedgewood said. "I'd love to be up top. I'd love to start in Albany. I just want to get best opportunity possible for myself to develop and play. If they want me here, I'm, obviously, going to play for that position and put my best foot forward. And if they keep me down in Albany, I'm going to play to stay up there and move up." He had a 2.39 GAA and .899 save percentage in 36 AHL games in 2013-14.

Scott Wedgewood intends to battle for the Devils' backup gig during training camp.

"Yes. You don’t want to shoot too far ahead of yourself and get too cocky, but you don't want to come in anywhere being complacent," said Wedgewood. "There are obviously a lot of people ahead of me if you were to look at a depth chart on paper, but I think it's definitely how you play and the way you handle yourself in situations." Wedgewood is a long shot to make the team as he'd have to beat out both Scott Clemmensen and Keith Kinkaid for the backup role.
