Over the course of the lockout, we will be bringing you various news on anything New Jersey Devils throughout the world. Whether its some AHL talk or KHL talk that concerns anyone from the Devils organization, you can find it all right here. Hopefully we will be talking NJ Devils hockey on a daily basis very soon!!New from the weekend...Ilya Kovalchuk - W - Devils Ilya Kovalchuk tallied a hat trick to give SKA St. Petersburg a 4-2 triumph against CSKA Moscow. St. Louis Blues prospect Vladimir Tarasenko contributed three assists in the game, while CSKA's Pavel Datsyuk had two points (goal and assist) for the losing squad. Kovalchuk had posted one goal in his previous five KHL contests. Scott Parse - W - Devils Scott Parse is looking to rebound from a pair of tough seasons, where he had surgery on both hips and he appeared in a combined 14 games with Los Angeles. He skated in 59 contests with the Kings in 2009-10 in which he contributed 11 goals and 13 assists. Parse didn't get his name on the Stanley Cup because he didn't dress in any of the team's playoff matches. He signed with the Albany Devils this past off-season so that he could play during the NHL lockout, but he expects to get a two-way deal with the big club once it is over. Parse said he is healthy now and he will look to get back on track in the minors first. Raman Hrabarenka - D - Devils Raman Hrabarenka inked an AHL deal with the Albany Devils on Sunday. According to the QMJHL's website, Hrabarenka agreed to terms with New Jersey's minor-league affiliate after attending training camp with the club on a tryout. He tied fellow defenseman Brandon Burlon for the team scoring lead with four points (one goal, three assists) in three preseason contests. He played two seasons in the QMJHL and had 20 points, with 55 penalty minutes, in 57 games between Cape Breton and Drummondville last year. Harri Pesonen - Devils Devils’ left winger Harri Pesonen has opened eyes in training camp and in the early part of the exhibition action for Albany in the AHL. Pesonen is a late-blooming prospect that New Jersey decided to take a flyer on this summer. The 23-year-old put up 21 goals and 35 points in 60 games with JYP of the Finnish SM-Liga last season. Travis Zajac - C - Devils Travis Zajac is not planning on playing in Europe in the very near future. The underrated Devil pivot returned to his home in Winnipeg this week to work out with a number of Jets' players and others. Zajac believes a deal can be struck to end the lockout in weeks as opposed to months and that going to play in Europe is an option only for a prolonged work stoppage. "I'd be lying if I said I wasn't (thinking about playing in Europe)," Zajac said. "But I'm still hanging around; I have some optimism about things starting eventually here and hopefully in the next couple of weeks or a month things can get done." We hope his optimism isn't misplaced. Reece Scarlett - D - Devils Reece Scarlett, New Jersey's sixth round draft pick last year, scored a goal and three assists in Swift Current's 10-1 win over Saskatoon Friday night in WHL action. Scarlett is on pace to top his 2011-12 point output where he put up 49 points in 71 games.
