Kyle Charles Palmieri (born February 1, 1991) is an American professional ice hockey right winger currently playing for the New Jersey Devils of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was drafted in the first round, 26th overall, by Anaheim in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit]

Amateur[edit]

Prior to turning professional, Palmieri played youth hockey with the New Jersey Devils Youth Hockey Club,[1] before joining the USA Hockey National Team Development Program in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Palmieri played college hockey for the University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish. In his lone season at Notre Dame, Palmieri scored nine goals, including five power play goals, and had eight assists. He was born in Smithtown, New York, but grew up in Montvale, New Jersey. In the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Palmieri was taken 26th overall by the Anaheim Ducks.[2] Kyle played briefly for the well-known coach Gary Hess of the Kodiak Hockey Club skating at McKay Ice Arena in Englewood, NJ. Playing with other notable offensive lineman Sam Oliff and Kyle Rosa, Kyle enjoyed some early success as a Pee-Wee skater.

Professional[edit]

During the 2010–11 season, on November 3, 2010, the Anaheim Ducks recalled Palmieri from the American Hockey League (AHL)'s Syracuse Crunch to play in his NHL debut at a home game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.[3] Palmieri would go in to score his first NHL goal in that game against the Lightning's Dan Ellis.[4]

Palmieri, who began his second professional season by scoring six points in his first two games of the 2011–12 season, including a hat-trick, to lead the Syracuse Crunch to victories, was named the AHL Player of the Week for the period ending October 16, 2011.[5]

On June 26, 2015, Palmieri was traded by the Ducks to hometown club, the New Jersey Devils in exchange for second and third-round draft picks in the 2015 NHL Draft.[6]
