The NHL season has a few more weeks left before the holidays arrive and that means the annual Work Junior Championships will be taking place, and obviously, you’ll be locked into The Hockey Writers for all of your WJC needs. With all of the top prospects on display shortly we thought it’d be a good time to take a gander at how some of the prospects in the New Jersey Devils organization have been doing around the various leagues that they are currently competing in as they hope to reach the NHL level someday. This way you don’t have to look through seventeen different websites, like we did!
*Please note that the stats for some of the players competing in Europe are a little harder to confirm than those of who are not overseas.
*Michael McLeod, Joey Anderson, John Quenneville and Jesper Boqvist have just returned from early-season injuries.
*All stats are from games played through December 6.
