Is Scott Timmins Close to NHL Action?

Scott Timmins was acquired by the New Jersey Devils in a trade that saw Krys Barch go to the Florida Panthers.

Timmins played in 61 games for the Albany Devils and will be going into the 2014 Calder Cup Playoffs looking to contribute for Albany in a big way.

Timmins was an uncertainty coming into the season but was an upgrade in more ways than one over the expendable Barch.

He has not only exceeded expectations but is looking like he could be a late-season candidate for the NHL roster depending on what happens in the offseason and with injuries next season. Timmins has 13 goals and 26 assists with a +10 rating.

Timmins has only 24 games of experience in the NHL, all with Florida. He has 1 career point, a goal.

He is going to be a Restricted Free Agent this offseason but Lou will probably qualify him. Going into this season, Timmins was signed to a 1-year, 2-way deal. His AHL salary was 65,000 with his NHL salary at 600,000.

Scott has always been labeled as someone who isn’t a flashy scorer like some but its well-rounded and can get the assists up. He has shown a lot of potential this season and it will be interesting to see what happens with Scott next season.
