Behind the Mask With Devils Prospect Gilles Senn

July 14th, 2018 22-year-old goalie Gilles Senn is a little older than your average prospect, but the New Jersey Devils saw something that they liked in the Swiss goaltender and made him their fifth-round pick at the 2017 NHL Draft. Who knows, maybe they noticed him over there while scouting another player from...

It’s no secret the New Jersey Devils have been a haven for former college players, a staple under former President/GM Lou Lamoriello, himself previously an icon at Providence College. On the Devils first Stanley Cup championship club in 1995, there were no less than 11 players from 10 different NCAA schools who saw action that postseason. Among those players was Bill Guerin, who starred at Boston College for two seasons before he embarked upon a 17-year professional career that concluded with another Stanley Cup ring in 2009 with Pittsburgh. Guerin is long gone from New Jersey—but the Devils’ connections to his alma mater persist. No less than six former Boston College Eagles suited up for the Devils in 2017-18, and helped New Jersey return to the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since a run to the Eastern Conference crown in 2012. Brian Boyle Wins Masterton Trophy The most predominant former Eagle on last year’s Devils, even if he didn’t pace his former college...

Every year, there's always a surprise free agent or two that catches one's attention. Anthony Duclair happens to be one of them this offseason. He's set to become an unrestricted free agent tomorrow after the Chicago Blackhawks didn't tender him a qualifying offer. The 22-year-old finished 2017-18 with 23 points in 56 games between the Blackhawks and Arizona Coyotes. There's no doubt the New Jersey Devils would like to add scoring when free agency opens tomorrow. Duclair may not be a first option signing, but there's plenty to like about his game. Here's why he would be a savvy addition to the Devils' roster. Duclair Impactful Forward at Five-on-Five Duclair's point totals may not seem impressive. Since scoring 44 points in 81 games in 2015-16, he has just 38 points in his last 114 games. However, it doesn't mean he hasn't performed well. The following table shows his year-to-year numbers at five-on-five since 2015. Year Corsi For Relative Corsi For Expected Goals...

Toronto Maple Leafs

While the rivalry between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the New Jersey Devils may not be what it used to - following the Tie Domi elbow on Scott Niedermayer - there has been tension between the two clubs in the past. Still, that hasn’t stopped the two organizations from engaging in trade talks from time to time with many instances actually culminating in trades. While we had to go back to 1997 to find the fifth most recent deal between the Maple Leafs and Devils, there have been a number of them over the past 21 years. With that, here’s a look at the five most recent deals between the two clubs. From Toronto With Loov The last time the Devils and Maple Leafs pulled the trigger on a deal was back on Feb. 18, 2017. The Leafs acquired Sergey Kalinin in exchange for Viktor Loov. Kalinin - who had played 121 games for the Devils - finished the year with the AHL’s Toronto Marlies picking up four points in 19 games. He joined St. Petersburg SKA in the KHL for the 2017-18...

After having the first overall pick in 2017, things were more subdued for the New Jersey Devils in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. They made six selections with only one coming in the first three rounds. They selected two defensemen, three forwards, and one goalie. Here's a review of each pick made by general manager Ray Shero and his team of scouts. First Round Ty Smith (D) With their first selection, the Devils used the 17th overall pick on defenseman Ty Smith of the WHL's Spokane Chiefs. Smith is listed at 5-foot-11 and 176 pounds, and was ranked 14th in NHL Central Scouting's final rankings, 13th by TSN/Bob McKenzie, and 15th by McKeen's Hockey. For what Smith lacks in size, he makes up for in production. He finished the 2017-18 season with 73 points (14 goals, 59 assists) in 69 games. He is a threat on both the power play and at 5-on-5, where he was one of the top scorers among CHL draft-eligible defensemen. Smith's...
