The Devils have trimmed their roster by eight, leaving them with 28 players left in training camp.

Among the cuts the team announced were top prospects Stefan Matteau and defenseman Jon Merrill, both of whom were hoping to crack the opening day roster.

Those two players were assigned to Albany of the American Hockey League, along with goaltender Scott Wedgewood, defensemen Brandon Burlon and Eric Gelinas and forwards Rod Pelley, Tim Sestito and Mike Sislo.

Defenseman Damon Severson was also sent back to his junior team, the Kelowna Rockets of the Western Hockey League.
