The Devils reassigned Seney to AHL Binghamton on Sunday.
Seney suited up in 51 games for the big club this season, and he produced 13 points and a minus-14 rating. He adds a physical component as well, dropping the gloves three times this season. Seney will look to carve out a bottom-six role with the squad next season.
Seney was called up from AHL Binghamton on Wednesday.
While not yet confirmed, we suspect that the Devils will keep Seney at the top level for Thursday's game against the Hurricanes. After all, Kurtis Gabriel (upper body) and Kyle Palmieri (lower body) are day-to-day with injuries, and the rookie needs the extra top-level experience. Seney is up to five goals and eight assists through 50 games, despite only averaging 10:21 of ice time.
Seney was sent down to AHL Binghamton on Sunday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.
Seney has 13 points in 50 NHL contests this season while averaging 10:21 of ice time per game. The 22-year-old rookie will likely get back to the NHL level at some point this season, possibly after Monday's trade deadline.
Seney (leg) was able to return for the third period of Thursday's game against the Blackhawks, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.
When Seney exited the game in the second period it appeared as though he might be dealing with a serious injury, but the 22-year-old forward may have simply been cramping up after taking a hard hit from Chicago's Drake Caggiula. Seney should be good to go for Friday's matchup with Minnesota.
Seney exited Thursday's game against the Blackhawks in the second period after suffering an apparent leg injury, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Seney suffered the injury when he was crushed into the boards behind New Jersey's goal by Chicago's Drake Caggiula. The 22-year-old winger tried to skate to the bench on his own, but was unable to do so, and ultimately had to be helped off the ice and into the locker room. The severity of Seney's injury has yet to be determined, but it's safe to assume he'll miss the rest of Thursday's contest at a minimum.
Seney scored on his lone shot in Saturday's 4-2 loss to Minnesota.
Seney snapped a seven-game point drought with the goal. Called up after performing at a point-per-game pace for 10 contests with AHL Binghamton, the 22-year-old forward has been unable to replicate that success with 11 points in 43 games with the big club.
Seney recorded one shot in 14:33 of ice time in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to Columbus.
Seney's ice-time total was the second-highest of his 36-game NHL career and even included 1:11 on the power play. The rookie forward doesn't offer much in terms of short-term fantasy value, having totaled 10 points and a minus-8 rating thus far at the NHL level.
Seney finished with three shots and a minus-1 rating in Tuesday's 7-2 loss to Toronto.
Seney has just six points and a minus-8 rating through his first 22 NHL games.
Seney had an assist and three shots on net in a 5-2 loss to the Lightning on Sunday.
That gives the 22-year-old rookie four points in 12 games. He's only averaged 11:24 per contest in ice time, and the odds of him moving off the fourth line are slim, so expectations should be kept low for Seney.
Seney fired one shot on goal and blocked a shot in his NHL debut Saturday in a 3-0 loss to the Islanders.
Seney was recalled to the big club on the previous day and entered the fold immediately. The 22-year-old pivot will likely stay in the lineup until Jesper Bratt (jaw) and Stefan Noesen (upper body) are healthy again.
The Devils promoted Seney from AHL Binghamton on Friday.
Seney made his mark at the NHL Prospects Challenge this offseason and that carried over to his start with Binghamton, where he totaled 10 points -- one goal and nine assists -- over 10 games. The Devils may have discovered a diamond in the rough with their 2015 sixth-round selection. He could make his NHL debut Saturday against the Islanders, though the exact lineup remains unclear at this point.
