Stephane Veilleux(19) New Jersey Devils

11-year pro Stephane Veilleux(19) split from North American hockey to the Swiss Hockey Leagues for a season but the stats suggest he was likely a little unhappy with that decision; so he returned to sign a one-year, two-way deal for 2011/2012 with New Jersey Devils that has seen him appear in 40 AHL games with Albany. He has 11 goals and 11 assists and +3 on the ice with them and plays like a team leader every game out there.

He has 439 NHL appearances to his credit and was originally a Minnesota Wild 3rd round pick in 2001 (#93 overall). He played his first 8 seasons with the Wild and Houston Aeros.

As a Valentine’s gift, he received his 1st call-up and played a sparing 4:36 in the 4-1 win.
