The Devils dealt Scarlett to the Panthers on Wednesday in exchange for forward Shane Harper. Scarlett was not recalled by the Devils once during his time in their organization, so maybe a change of scenery will better his chances of seeing an NHL game. The 23-year-old has notched a respectable 21 points from the blue line in the AHL this season.
Scarlett was assigned to AHL Albany on Sunday, TSN reports. The 23-year-old hasn't played an NHL game yet, and he may still get called up this year, but for now he will start the season in the minors.
Scarlett penned a one-year, two-way deal with New Jersey on Monday. Scarlett has not made his NHL debut, yet it appears the organization has seen enough from his time with AHL Albany to extend him another year long deal. Fantasy owners shouldn't be shocked to see the youngster get called up at some point, although they shouldn't expect him to have an extended stay barring injury to the blueliners above him in the depth chart.
