Ken Appleby: Headed for free agency
Appleby didn't receive a qualifying offer from the Jets and will become an unrestricted free agent July 1.
Appleby was the odd man out, as Eric Comrie and Mikhail Berdin figures to divide up the goaltending responsibilities with AHL Manitoba. The 24-year-old Appleby may have to consider a move overseas if he wants to continue his professional career, but may not get another taste of NHL action.... See More ... See Less

Devils' Ken Appleby: Shifts to minors
Appleby was assigned to AHL Binghamton on Sunday.
The Devils opted to call up seasoned veteran Eddie Lack to back up Keith Kinkaid while starter Cory Schneider nurses a groin injury. Appleby showed promise in three appearances, stopping 52 of 55 shots -- a .945 save percentage -- but failing to record a win. The 22-year-old will look to bring this extra confidence back to the AHL, where he fashioned a measly .888 save percentage in 16 games earlier this season.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Ken Appleby: Makes 24 saves in loss to Preds
Appleby allowed three goals on 27 shots during Thursday's 3-0 loss to Nashville.
This was the first start of Appleby's career, and it proved to be a tough task. He recorded an underwhelming .888 save percentage and 3.21 GAA through 16 games with AHL Binghamton, so fantasy expectations should remain in check. However, Appleby appears to be the No. 1 in New Jersey until Cory Schneider (lower body) or Keith Kinkaid (groin) are healthy enough to patrol the blue paint, so the North Bay, Ontario native could be a streaming option immediately following the All-Star break....

Devils' Ken Appleby: Guarding cage Thursday
Appleby will make his first NHL start in Thursday's clash with Nashville, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.
Appleby has made two relief appearances for the Devils in which he was a perfect 28 for 28. Keeping pucks out of the net versus the Predators will certainly be a challenge, considering they are averaging 3.00 goals. Expect the Ontario native's time as the starter for New Jersey to come to an end as soon as Cory Schneider (lower body) or Keith Kinkaid (groin) is cleared to play.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Ken Appleby: Faces four shots in relief duty
Appleby saved all four shots in the third period of Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Boston.
Appleby entered after starter Cory Schneider left with a lower-body injury following the second period. With Schneider's status up in the air leading into Thursday's game, Appleby could play host to the Predators in the Devils' final contest before the All-Star break. It's probably best to take a wait-and-see approach with Appleby in all settings, as Nashville projects as a daunting matchup, and he might not even be tasked with the start.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Ken Appleby: Perfect in relief in NHL debut
Appleby made his NHL debut Saturday in relief and stopped all 24 shots he faced in a 3-1 loss to the Flyers.
Appleby was pressed into duty Saturday after starter Keith Kinkaid was hurt after he coughed up three goals on four shots. He's been in the NHL on emergency recall after Cory Schneider was cut down at the knees by the flu. And now, Appleby may stay because of Kinkaid's ouch. He looked sharp Saturday.... See More ...

Devils' Ken Appleby: Back in NHL under emergency condition
Appleby was added to the Devils roster under emergency conditions ahead of Saturday's game against the Flyers.
This news presumably means Cory Schneider (illness) isn't expected to be available as a backup for Saturday's contest against the Flyers. With Keith Kinkaid already confirmed as the starter, Appleby would simply be an option in a pinch for the Devils.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Ken Appleby: Goes back to minor league
Appleby was reassigned to AHL Binghamton on Wednesday.
It's safe to deduce that the Devils wouldn't have made this move if Cory Schneider (illness) wasn't on track to dress for Thursday's home game against the Capitals. Appleby, who is still looking to make his NHL debut, heads back to the team's top development affiliate with defenseman Steven Santini rejoining the parent club in a corresponding transaction....

Devils' Ken Appleby: Recalled from AHL
Appleby was added from AHL Binghamton on Tuesday to back up Keith Kinkaid versus the Islanders.
Appleby's stay with the big club shouldn't last long, especially with Mirco Mueller likely to be activated off injured reserve Thursday. He will serve in a backup role to Kinkaid on Tuesday, but he's not expected to see any action before returning to the minors, barring Corey Schneider's illness keeping him out of commission beyond the matchup with the Islanders....

Devils' Ken Appleby: Sent to AHL
Appleby was assigned to minor-league affiliate Binghamton on Saturday.
Here's a guy who's still looking to make his NHL debut. He didn't make any preseason appearances with the parent club, but even shadowing the more established netminders in New Jersey is considered good experience for the 22-year-old.... See More ... See Less
