The Stat Line Of The Night – 04/11/09 – Boyd Devereaux
Total Pro Sports – The Ottawa Senators were in Toronto to take on the Maple Leafs. A game that meant nothing to both teams was won by the Maple Leafs 5-2. Both teams are out of the playoffs and now can find themselevs on the golf course.
The player of the game was All Star forward Boyd Devereaux. Who? That’s right Boyd Devereaux had one of his best games in his career scoring a hat trick in the win over the Senators, with his thrid goal coming in the shorthanded in the third period. Ultimately making him “The Stat Line Of The Night” for Saturday April 11th, 2009.
“It’s still Saturday night in Toronto and you’re playing for the Leafs on Hockey Night in Canada,’ Devereaux said. “Definitely whenever you get a chance to pop a hat trick, you definitely get excited about it.
“I’m sure it’s more satisfying in a Game 7 playoff game but certainly I’ll take it. For sure.”
The 30-year-old Devereaux was the Leafs’ final cut out of training camp and he spent the first couple of months in the AHL. He was eventually called up in February and he managed to stay with Toronto the rest of the way. Devereaux can become an unrestricted free agent in July.
“I’ve come up and just tried to enjoy myself and have fun,” Devereaux said. “I really relish playing at this level. They have a lot of hard decisions and I’m sure there’s going to be lots of changes.
“I’m just going to have to wait and see like pretty much every other guy in the locker room.”
