|Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
Most of us remember Mallette from when he broke in with the New York Rangers as a regular on the lower lines... and
in column 6 with all the fistacuffs he got involved in.
For a couple years after he left them, he wasn't quite the same player. That's largely because he wasn't seeing as much
game action as he did in Manhattan. And in said couple years, that includes his time as a Devil.
If nothing else, he did get to show a defensive side, as he was plus on the season for both years he played with them.
He wasn't really going anywhere with the Devils, though, but the trade to Ottawa did give him a rejuvenation and he
became a regular in their lineup for 3 seasons, although injuries did limit his games in the lockout season to 23.
He played one season with the Boston Bruins after he left the Sens, then was set to play for the Tampa Bay Lightning in
97-98. His season there barely got off the ground; a back injury against Chicago cut his season to just 3 games, as well
as ending his career that October.
Currently, he's serving as a firefighter for the Greater Sudbury Fire Department.
