Dan is another guy who got the call, backed up but never played for the Devils. He played 4 years at Colgate University before winding up with the Devils’ AHL affiliate, the Utica Devils, from 1987-1989.
Dan got the call in 1987 to back up for Alain Chevrier due to an injury to Bob Sauve. He backed up for 4 games before returning to the AHL, when Craig Billington was called up.
Dan was not on my original list, and on the very day I learned of his stint in New Jersey, I started looking. I found an address (it appeared to be a business address) and sent it his way. A month later, this puck arrived back to me, with a note saying that somehow it was delivered to his friend’s house, and he passed it along. I don’t know how that happened, but I am obviously very happy that it did.
Back down to four remaining.
