Sam Laberge recalled by the New Jersey Devils

Forward Sam Laberge has been recalled to the New Jersey Devils marking his first-ever recall to the National Hockey League.

For Sam Laberge, it’s better late than never.

The twenty-six-year-old winger recently signed an NHL contract with the Devils after playing this season on an AHL contract with the Utica Comets. The Devils wasted no time cashing in on their investment, as they recalled Laberge on Wednesday from Utica.

Laberge has yet to play a National Hockey League game. His professional career began in 2017-18 with the Texas Stars of the AHL – whom he signed with as an undrafted free agent. Since then, he has played for the Stars and Comets of the AHL as well as Idaho, Allen, and Adirondack of the ECHL.

This season marks Laberge’s third with the Utica Comets. In eight games played for the Comets this season, he has one goal, two assists, and sixteen PIM.

The Devil’s next game is on Thursday night, November 30 when they hit the road to face the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Comets take on the Belleville Senators at home on Wednesday night. For more information about the Utica Comets, including schedules and ticketing, visit https://uticacomets.com.
