NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Former first-round draft pick Stefan Matteau was among eight players sent to Albany of the AHL by the New Jersey Devils.

President and general manager Lou Lamoriello announced the moves on Wednesday, eight days before the season opener at Pittsburgh.

Matteau was the Devils’ top pick in 2012 and was on the final roster to start last season. He played in 17 games for New Jersey and had a goal and two assists.

Also assigned to Albany were: goaltender Scott Wedgewood; defensemen Brandon Burlon, Eric Gelinas and Jon Merrill; and forwards Rod Pelley, Tim Sestito and Mike Sislo. Defenseman Damon Severson was returned to Kelowna of the WHL.

The Devils have 28 players on their roster.
