Tommy Albelin played in his first game in the 2006 playoffs on Saturday
The Devils inserted Albelin into the lineup in place of Richard Matvichuk, who was a healthy scratch. The soon to be 42-year-old played 11:53 on defense and did not make it on the scoreboard. Albelin may be back in the lineup on Sunday as coach Lou Lamiorello may not want to tamper with a winning lineup. Sat, May 13, 2006 06:50:00 PM

Tommy Albelin played his first game last night in the Devils' 1-0 loss to the Thrashers.

Albelin, at 41, didn't look out of place and was praised by coach-GM Lou Lamiorello, "I don't think we could have asked for a better game." It is tough to say what type of fantasy impact the veteran defenceman will have. However, with the Devils' in disarray, Lamiorello is looking to anyone for help, and Albelin could see plenty of ice-time if he keeps his play up.

The Devils have signed Tommy Albelin to a one-year contract.

The 41-year-old defenseman has decided to come out of retirement and should join the New Jersey blueline corps after the holidays. Do the Devils really believe Albelin is a better player than Vladimir Malakhov?

Tommy Albelin has been working out and hopes to sign a contract with the Devils for the 2005-06 season.

The 41-year-old defenseman is a long shot to make an NHL comeback. Albelin will only play with New Jersey, and there is only one spot on the blueline available. If Scott Stevens decides to play this season, Albelin will be forced to take a job in the Devils' front office. Even if Albelin gets the chance to play, you don't want him on your fantasy team.

Tommy Albelin has earned a roster spot on the Devils' blueline, reports The Bergen Record.

The 39-year-old rearguard came to camp on a tryout basis and got a job the old fashioned way; he earned it. Of course, if you plan on competing in your hockey pool Albelin should not be on your draft list.

Tommy Albelin was invited to the Devils' training camp on a try out basis, reports The Bergen Record.

Albelin, who became an unrestricted free agent when the Devils' failed to make him an offer this off-season is a backup option for New Jersey should rookie David Hale not be ready for the NHL.

Tommy Albelin will not be returning to the Devils, and will likley retire, reports The Bergen Record.

The 39-year-old rearguard did not receive an offer from New Jersey and is unlikey to sign elsewhere. Even if Albelin does find another NHL home, you should not be thinking about drafting him for your fantasy squad.
