Recent Merrimack grad Brett Seney wrapped up development camp with the New Jersey Devils on Saturday. Seney, who signed with the Devils this past March after Merrimack’s season ended against Boston College in the Hockey East playoffs, already has 12 games of pro hockey under his belt as he preps for his first full pro season.
According to several folks in attendance at the camp this week, Seney was one of the top players for Team White at the Devils camp.
“I had a little stint there and it’s different than college; obviously you don’t have to worry about school so you have a little more time off,” Seney told The Hockey Writers. “It’s a lifestyle. Everything you do you have to relate it back to how it’s going to help you on the ice. It was a little learning curve for me and some of the veterans in Binghamton definitely helped me adjust to it. It was a great experience and I’m really happy with how it worked out.”
Seney was also asked by THW who he models his game after. Growing up, he tried to emulate Martin St. Louis, and said there are still players in today’s game he can model his game after.
“In this day and age a guy like Tyler Johnson or Brad Marchand – I know he’s not the most liked guy in the league, but those are some guys that I can see modeling my game around,” he said.
