Steven Santini scored his first NHL goal in New Jersey's 3-2 overtime loss to Edmonton on Thursday.

It was an odd goal for a moment like that though as the puck deflected off Santini's elbow after being fired by teammate Taylor Hall. "It’s not exactly how you envision your first goal, I guess," said Santini. "It was a good play by Hallsie and P.A. (Parenteau) so I was just at the right place at the right time." He has three points in six games with the Devils this season.

Steven Santini will stay in the minors through the weekend at the least.

Santini hasn't played with New Jersey yet this season, but he's spent most of the campaign thus far in the NHL. That being said, he was briefly sent to the AHL on Sunday so that he could get into a minor league game. When he was reassigned again on Wednesday, the question then became if this was another short-term AHL stint and the jury still seems to be out on that.

Steven Santini has been assigned to AHL Albany.

Santini spent Tuesday's contest in the press box. He's yet to play with the Devils in 2016-17, but he was briefly sent to the AHL recently to appear in a game with Albany. The question now is if this is another brief AHL stint for the sake of getting him a bit of work or if he'll stay in the minors for a prolonged period of time.

Steve Santini will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against Arizona.

Santini still hasn't played a game in the NHL this season, but played one in the AHL. Santini was a point producer in the college ranks, but will likely need more time to develop at the NHL level. Jacob Josefson will also watch the game from the press box.

Steven Santini might end up with more very brief stints in the AHL.

Santini was sent to the minors on Sunday so he could participate in Albany's 4-3 overtime victory and then summoned on Monday. It remains to be seen if New Jersey will use him on Tuesday, but if not he could return to Albany for Wednesday's AHL contest. We'll see if that becomes a pattern, but it would allow Santini to get in some extra work while continuing to at least practice with New Jersey even when he's not playing much.

Steven Santini has been called up from the minors.

The New Jersey Devils have assigned Steven Santini to AHL Albany.

Santini had two blocks, two PIMs, and a shot on net in his NHL debut, but clearly has not been able to work his way on to the Devils' blue line. He does not project to be much of a fantasy asset moving forward.

Steven Santini is looking to stick with the New Jersey Devils during his first full pro season.

Santini played in one game with the Devils near the end of last season, after spending the previous three years at Boston College. It won't be easy for him to stick in the NHL this year, but Santini isn't focusing on that. "I don't think you can really look into that kind of stuff, at least I don't," Santini said of the limited number of openings on New Jersey's roster. "I just try to have good practice habits, good off-ice workouts and all that stuff, and focus on my recovery, because that's all I can really control. The numbers and the personnel are all out of my control, so I don't really worry about that."
