New Jersey Devils

Sometimes in the NHL when a player signs with a team they just seamlessly fit it with what the style of how they want to play on the ice and that’s exactly what the New Jersey Devils have gotten when they signed Drew Stafford to a one-year/$800,000 deal late this summer (August 25). Strangely they brought in Jimmy Hayes on a PTO two days before the Stafford signing and then eventually signed Hayes on the eve of the season.Now on his fourth team (Buffalo, Winnipeg, Boston), the Milwaukee, Wisconsin native has put up 404 points (186g-218a) including 49 power play goals and 29 game-winners. On a relatively young team, he’s been the perfect compliment to ride shotgun with some of their prized prospects.Stafford has become a key part of the Devils top-6 through the first three weeks of the NHL season, he’s been able to slot in with different players and he’s also added some much-needed scoring depth to one of the league’s lowest scoring teams last season. Through five...

For the New Jersey Devils, it wasn’t an easy decision to trade defenseman Adam Larsson, even if it was a straight-up swap for the star forward they so desperately desired in Taylor Hall. But part of that decision was likely based on the fact that they knew they had Steven Santini coming up the pipeline and he had just signed his entry-level deal two months before the blockbuster trade was consummated.Since the middle of last season, Santini has virtually been a regular in the Devils lineup, and the 22-year-old defender now has 45 games of NHL experience under his belt. After the team’s lone loss of the young season - a 5-2 whitewashing at the hands of the Washington Capitals - he responded with maybe two of his best games since he turned pro. Earning Coach’s Trust “He’s brought a lot, Steven’s brought a lot of stability back there. We’ve seen growth in his game from last year to this year; he’s more assertive, and he’s done a nice job when he’s been in...

New Jersey Devils

The New Jersey Devils are off to a flying start. They have won five of their first six games for the first time since 2008-09 and are tied with the Colombus Blue Jackets for first place in the Metropolitan Divison. A lot of those wins have come against some impressive competition. Excluding the New York Rangers and Buffalo Sabres, the Devils have won against teams that are currently 15-5-1. Two of those teams, the Toronto Maple Leafs and Tampa Bay Lightning, are first and third in the NHL respectively.The Devils have benefitted from a roster makeover over the offseason and it is paying dividends so far. New additions such as Drew Stafford, Nico Hischier, Brian Gibbons and Will Butcher have made big impacts. Other newcomers to the club like Jesper Bratt and Marcus Johansson have also made their presence known. All of these new players allow the Devils to utilize a new way to play. Head coach John Hynes finally has pieces to work with and he is using them perfectly so far. Fast,...

Who would have guessed they would be ahead of teams like the Pittsburgh Penguins and Colombus Blue Jackets a week into the season? Obviously, it's a small sample size, but the Devils' play has been very encouraging thus far.With meaningful contributions from many players, it was hard to narrow down the three stars of the first week. However, there are a few who have played just a cut above their peers. Let's take a look at who makes the first three stars of the 2017-18 season! 3) Jesper Bratt Jesper Bratt came into training camp as a long shot to make the roster.
