The New Jersey Devils are starting to lean heavily on 22-year-old defenseman Steven Santini.
Santini logged 25:40 minutes of ice time in New Jersey's 5-4 shootout win on Tuesday. That was the third straight contest that he's gotten at least 20 minutes and it brought his season average up to 20:58 minutes. Not bad for a blueliner who entered the season with 39 NHL contests on his resume. "I’d say the last two games, the Ranger game (a 3-2 Devils win on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden) and this game, Steven has really taken a nice step," Devils coach John Hynes said. Santini's not much of an offensive contributor, though he does have two assists in six contests this season. Oct 18 - 5:12 AM

Steven Santini and Jon Merrill have made a nice defense pairing for the Devils.

The duo have been together since January. "We compliment each other pretty well, in terms of moving the puck and defensive positioning," Santini said. "So he's made the transition from Albany to here very easy for me, so I'm thankful for that. Ever since I got called up, he's been really good to me, and I think the off ice chemistry has helped us on ice, as well." Santini has two goals and seven points in 27 games so he really does not have much fantasy value at this time.

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.

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.

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.
