It’s fair to say that the Connecticut Whale have had an indifferent start to the season, stumbling to a 1-3-1 record to open the year. What the Whale’s start also suggests is that when you dig a little deeper there may be a need for patience in regard to prospect development.

The Connecticut Whale won their first game of the season last night, beating Albany (the AHL affiliate of the Devils) 5-2. J.T. Miller netted his first AHL goal, as he simply deked Adam Larsson out of his jock en route to the goal. You can see the goal in the embedded highlights.
