A new name among the forward recruits is right-wing Gabe Chabot from the Rochester Jr. Americans of the USPHL Premier league. The 5-9, 175 native of St. Albert’s, Alberta, who led the Junior Americans in scoring last season with 50 points (19G, 31A) in 44 games, is a converted defenseman who was moved up front last season and blossomed as a right wing. He added three goals in three playoff games.

Chabot, who earned a spot in the USPHL Premier all-star game, previously played for the Portland Junior Pirates in both the Elite and Premier divisions. His father is Frédéric Chabot, a longtime minor league goalie who was drafted by the Devils in 1988 and reached the NHL, playing about 40 games for Montreal, Philadelphia and Los Angeles .
