ECHL: Maine Mariners make roster moves ahead of Game 2 of the North Division semifinals

On April 20, the Maine Mariners had two players drafted to the Providence Bruins of the AHL. The first of these is forward Owen Pederson. He is currently signed to a two-year contract with Providence. Pederson has played 54 games for the Mariners so far this season, scoring 13 goals and 12 assists for 25 points; this now marks Pederson making both his AHL and ECHL debuts in his first season as a pro.

The other Mariner sent to Providence is forward Wyllum Deveaux, who was signed with the Mariners as a free agent and is on loan to Providence. In his 46 games for the Mariners this season, he scored 13 goals and had 11 assists for a total of 24 points. This follows the Mariners’ first playoff game on Friday, where the Mariners defeated the Adirondack Thunder in a 2-1 win. Deveaux scored the winning goal for the Maine, which came unassisted. This is the first AHL call-up for both players, and both appeared in their first AHL game on the 20th against the Bridgeport Islanders. Providence is still wrapping up their regular season and their last game before the playoffs is April 21st. Deveaux had his first fight in his first AHL game. He has been released from his PTO by Providence and will be back with the Mariners for Sunday’s game, while Pederson still remains with the Providence Bruins. The Mariners play game two against the Thunder today, the 21st, in Glens, Falls, NY.
