Sergei Brylin will serve as an assistant coach with the AHL Albany Devils.

Albany is the AHL affiliate of the New Jersey Devils. Brylin played in 765 NHL games, all with the Devils, and won the Stanley Cup three times. Following the 2007-08 campaign, he headed to the KHL and spent the last four seasons of his playing career in that league.

Sergei Brylin appears to have a new role with the New Jersey Devils organization, but GM Lou Lamoriello hasn't stated what that is yet.

He has been helping out in an unspecified role during the lockout, but he isn't officially an employee of the team yet. Brylin was also seen at AHL Albany's training camp and he has been helping out there to start the year. Brylin skated in 765 career NHL games and all of them came with the New Jersey Devils, but he hasn't played in North America since 2007-08. He appeared in 41 games with Novokuznetsk Metallurg of the KHL last season.

Sergei Brylin will play for the KHL Metallurg Novokuznetsk this season.

Brylin had the option to participate in the Devils' training camp on a tryout basis, but he decided against it. He's expressed some interest in eventually rejoining the Devils' organization, but it probably won't be as a player.

Sergei Brylin might return to the Devils organization at some point, but it almost certainly won't be as a player.

Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said he wouldn't refuse to let Brylin participate in training camp if he asked, but he doesn't think it would be a good idea. Lamoriello would tell him that "his chances were very slim because of the people we have there now – unless there are changes." That being said, Brylin, who has spent the last three years in the KHL, could eventually return as a coach.

Sergei Brylin is hoping to eventually return to the New Jersey Devils' organization, but it might not happen in 2011-12.

Brylin left the Devils after the 2007-08 season to play for St. Petersburg SKA of the KHL. He might end up joining the Devils' coaching staff, but he's interested in prolonging his playing career and he's not likely to be signed by an NHL club. "I would love to play another year and maybe more. I don’t know," Brylin said. "I feel healthy and I had no problems last year. And I know if I stop now years later I’m probably going to think about, ‘What if I played another year?’ That would be something that, obviously, I would love to do and did for so many years." Brylin had seven goals and 12 points in 49 KHL games last season.

Sergei Brylin has confirmed that he will sign a deal to play in Russia next season.

The veteran forward was in New Jersey on Friday to pick up some of his belongings and told the media that he's planning to sign a three-year deal with St. Petersburg of Russia's Continental Hockey League. Brylin was not happy about not being offered a multi-year deal with the Devils.

Sergei Brylin is expected to sign a three year deal with a Russian team in the Continental Hockey League.

Brylin passed on an option to play for $1.53 million on a one year deal with the Devils. The deal is not official yet, but it sounds like it is.

New Jersey denied their team option on center Sergei Brylin, making him an UFA on Tuesday.

The decision was made early on Tuesday to re-sign Jay Pandolfo instead. "The role that they play and the style they play with what we have to do with our offense, I don't think we could keep both at this point," GM Lou Lamoriello said. "It was a very very difficult situation to make the decision."

Sergei Brylin is not interested in playing in the Continental Hockey League.

This is the Russian League that has been getting a lot of publicity of late, especially with the apparent $12 million offer made to Evgeni Malkin. Brylin, who has a team option for next season, would like to remain in the NHL and with the Devils. "I'm not quite ready yet to make any adjustments or decision like [going to Russia]," Brylin said. "I don't want to go anywhere. My family is very comfortable here." Bryline is not a fantasy asset any more, but is still a valuable member of the Devils.

The New Jersey Devils want to keep life-long Devil Sergei Brylin.

The New York Post is reporting that Brylin has an option for next season, but the Devils also have an option to retain his services. One of the two options need to be exercisd before July 1 or Brylin will become an unrestricted free agent at that time. Brylin had a very weak fantasy season in 2007/08, with only six goals and 16 points in 82 games, after a 16 goal, 40 point performance the season before. Brylin has played in 328 straight games for the Devils, and trails only the retired Ken Danyeko who once had a 388 game streak for New Jersey.

Sergei Brylin played in his 300th consecutive game on Wednesday.

Unfortunately, Brylin is well off his usual scoring pace this season with only five goals and 11 points 54 games. Last season, he collected 16 goals and 40 points in 82 games. However, in this day and age, playing almost four complete seasons without injury is simply amazing. Congratulations.

Sergei Brylin collected his first point in 10 games on Sunday.

Brylin scored once and added an assist while, ironically, shifting to the checking line against Atlanta. The veteran filled in for Jay Pandolfo on John Madden's line with youngster David Clarkson. However, with only three goals and six points in 26 games, he is not worth a roster spot in all fantasy leagues.
