Austin Cangelosi has signed a deal with the Albany Devils , the AHL affiliate of the New Jersey Devils. He joins fellow Eagle Brian Gibbons in Albany. There are also 3 Eagles that play for the Devils’ NHL squad: Cory Schneider, Steve Santini, and Miles Wood. Cangelosi has signed a 2-year contract that begins immediately. The Devils will finish out the 2016-17 season in Albany before moving to Binghamton next season when the Binghamton Senators move to Canada.
Despite going undrafted, Austin Cangelosi has been one of the top players in Hockey East throughout his career. He led the Eagles with 20 goals this season and scored 117 points during his Boston College playing career. He also recorded 20 goals as a junior. Cangelosi is the type of player that might spend some time in the minor leagues because of his size, but he should eventually prove that he has the skills to play in the NHL.
It would be surprising if Cangelosi doesn’t prove to be extremely successful in the minor leagues. Between his speed, shooting ability, and hard work, he should be able to make an instant impact with him new team.
Congrats to Cangelosi on his new deal, and good luck to him as he continues his hockey career.
