As a pro, Harrold has been used as the stay-at-homer. Let it be known, though, that he is indeed capable of playing an
offensive role on a team.
Just don't expect that to be a top 4 D-man.
His skills, and particularly his vision and intelligence, enable him to play wherever he is needed: power play, PK,
defense, or even right wing, where he was assigned to be in his Devils debut. (Although in reality, all 7 defensemen
were rotated throughout the night.)
He was signed to a two-way contract, so he was given a chance to make the team while a contingency plan was in
place. He didn't have a good training camp, though, which would lead to the Albany assignment to play on the third
He has been touted as a leader by example, so not a bad thing then with all the kids on the A-Devs.
This didn't mean we wouldn't see him in New Jersey. I would say that he played his way onto the postseason roster
while on recall.
In subsequent seasons, he was the team's seventh defenseman with mixed results. In his last season with them, he
actually started the season in Albany, but injuries, particularly Bryce Salvador's extended absence, would lead to his
return to the bigs.
He would spend the entire 15-16 season with the Chicago Wolves, the Blues' AHL rep. While he did have a good
season with 23 assists, he would not be resigned. He's still looking for a team right now.
