RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Scott Wedgewood.
Wedgewood saw his role within the New Jersey organization change when the Devils acquired Cory Schneider on draft day. The former Canadian world junior goalie is still attempting to establish himself as a professional netminder, spending time in both the ECHL and AHL last season. He's still a few years away from challenging for the Devils' backup job, but he's worth keeping tabs on nonetheless.
Wedgewood is one of several goaltending prospects in the New Jersey organization that the team is grooming as a possible replacement for Martin Brodeur, once the future Hall-of-Famer retires. Wedgewood was in goal for Canada during last winter's World Junior Championships but his numbers in the Ontario Hockey League leave a bit to be desired. The youngster posted a 3.02 goals-against average with a .911 save percentage en route to a 28-10-3 record for Plymouth. Wedgewood will battle with Keith Kinkaid and Jeff Frazee for starts at Albany (AHL) as the Devils have Brodeur and Johan Hedberg at the NHL level for the next two years.
