New Jersey Devils

The New Jersey Devils are 11-4-2 to start the season and are currently atop the Metropolitan Divison. No one, not even myself, predicted the Devils would start the season this well. What is more impressive, is this has all been accomplished with some key personnel missing extended time. Travis Zajac, the team’s first line center,

It has been a tough start to the season for the Montreal Canadiens, to say the least. They are 2-7-1 and are 29th in the league with five points. Only the winless Arizona Coyotes have been worse. The Habs’ offense has not found its scoring touch, their defense has looked subpar, and the consistent Vezina-worthy

Every person’s journey through life is different and the same can be said for every hockey player’s journey to become a professional player as well. Such is the case with New Jersey Devils’ forward Stefan Noesen, a kid from Plano, Texas that was drafted by the Ottawa Senators six and a half years ago at

Any hockey reporter who has had the opportunity to interview defenseman Ben Lovejoy through his nine-year career knows that he is a reporter’s dream. His replies to our questions are not only in-depth, descriptive and honest, but he’s also a loquacious wordsmith with a smooth delivery that just about causes you to pause as you

‘Injury is just another word for opportunity.’ At least it is when it relates to the 2017-18 New Jersey Devils who announced on August 17 that center Travis Zajac will miss four-to-six months after surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle. Whether you had Zajac penciled in as the Devils’ top line center or third

This article was originally written in February, 2016. When one thinks of ways to describe Martin Brodeur, many words come to mind. Stanley Cup champion. Gold medal winner. Vezina Trophy winner. Workhorse. Consistent. Clutch. Class. You don’t have to take my word for it, you could ask some of Marty’s teammates: and that’s just what

Throughout August, The Hockey Writers will be releasing a series of bold predictions. Team by team, this series will take shape as we look at some of the more questionable possibilities that could come into fruition during the 2017-18 season. Up next in this season’s offseason predictions are the New Jersey Devils and their newest

If it not for the Shea Weber/P.K. Subban deal, the Taylor Hall/Adam Larsson trade would have been the talk of the 2016 offseason, for good reason. Offensive players of Hall’s caliber are not traded too often — first overall-picks being traded is even rarer. Oddly enough, when this move was first being discussed there were

It was a chance to make a good impression and that’s exactly what Bobo Carpenter did in attending the New Jersey Devils Development Camp as an invitee. Carpenter went undrafted, twice, but that hasn’t deterred him from trying to force his way into an NHL franchise just yet. “I got a call from Mr. Fitzgerald

Addition by subtraction. If New Jersey Devils general manager Ray Shero has achieved nothing else in what has been an eventful offseason for his club, he’s been diligent in cutting dead weight. In a rebuild, there’s a fine line between carrying useful veterans to help rub off on a young squad and random roster fillers

Two weeks ago, I detailed how the New Jersey Devils could improve their defense, as it was a major problem last season. The offense was not much better, some could even argue that it was worse. New Jersey finished with 180 goals in 2016-17, good for third-worst in the NHL. Only the rebuilding Vancouver Canucks

With the way the New Jersey Devils performed in 2016-17, it is difficult to look back fondly on the season and identify any stars in the making. Despite the team’s 28th ranked 70 points, there was some good to come out of 2016-17. Here are the three Devils who won fans’ hearts at a time

Any New Jersey Devils fan that watched last season can tell you that the team needs major upgrades on defense. Turnovers, sloppy positioning, and lack of production were all too common of themes from the blue line in 2016-17. The Hockey Writers’ Will Agathis went more in depth on the current state of the Devils’
