BINGHAMTON (WBNG) - Forward Michael McLeod provided Binghamton hockey fans with some late-season excitement when he made his professional debut on April 6. McLeod only played in six games, tallying one point and adding a shootout goal in a win against Syracuse. McLeod is now with the New Jersey Devils after he was recalled when the B-Devils season ended.
It might be McLeod's only six games he plays in Binghamton, but he learned plenty about the pro-game in his brief stint with the B-Devils.
"I think just speed and making decisions much faster," said New Jersey Devils forward Michael McLeod. "The game is a lot different. So, kind of have to get use to that. You can't really be cute out there. Be hard-nosed and just kind of grind away and if you get your chance to score, you have to make plays too."
New Jersey is down 2-1 in the first round of the NHL playoffs against Tampa Bay. Game four is Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m.
