  1. 2017-2018 Prospects Thread

  2. 2017-2018 Prospects Thread

    Devils Insiders‏ @DevilsInsiders Devils Insiders Retweeted EP Transfers Fabian Zetterlund loaned to the 2nd division of pro hockey in Sweden. Same league Jesper Bratt played in last season. #NJDevils dalmashimself‏ @dalmashimself Replying to @DevilsInsiders Very good for him. Timrå are in a playoff race with promotion to SHL as a possibility. Tough, intense and challenging games in the coming months. With more minutes than in Färjestad. Ian Pulz Retweeted Devils Insiders This should be a good move. Timra is a very strong team and the level of competition should be more appropriate for this stage of Zetterlund's development: SuperElit J20 wasn't as competitive whereas SHL may have been a bit too competitive for him. Allsvenskan could be just right.

    Article above's author has been changed to Julie R, FWIW... More importantly (?), this week's prospects updates are out! Franken/AATJ: https://www.allaboutthejersey.com/2018/2/13/17002368/new-jersey-devils-prospect-update-2-13-18 Snippet from Pulz/Reddit below: https://www.reddit.com/r/devils/comments/7xbisq/devils_prospects_update_213/ Who's Hot: -Colby Sissons has continued to register points. He now has 10 assists in his last 8 games for Swift Current. -Jeremy Davies adds to his trophy cabinet with Northeastern winning the Beanpot tournament last night (the first time in 30 years). Davies registered 2 assists in the championship game. This Beanpot tournament win is in addition to the Spengler Cup win for Jeremy Davies and Team Canada. I was very impressed with Jeremy Davies' play during the Beanpot tournament. His stickwork in the defensive zone was very impressive, and that's not to mention his offensive play...4 assists in the 2 games of the tournaments. -While not at a point per game pace, Jesper Boqvist is putting up some really impressive numbers for a 19-year old 2nd round pick in the highest professional league in Sweden.
  4. GDT : Bruins @ Devils - 7:00 PM - MSG+2, NESN

    Amanda Stein ‏Verified account @amandacstein Lineup changes for #NJDevils: Moore and Quenneville are out. Quenneville got injured last night. Jimmy Hayes and Mirco Mueller are in. Eddie Lack starts vs Bruins. #NJDevils: Coach Hynes confirms to me that Cory Schneider will not be back for at least another week.
  5. GDT : Bruins @ Devils - 7:00 PM - MSG+2, NESN

    LGD!!! FWIW: Glenn "Chico" Resch ‏Verified account @chicoreschNJD Here is hoping Eddie lacks nothing tonight as he will get the start vs the Bruins. A goal explosion by his teamates would help as well.
  6. GDT: Devils vs Jackets 7:00

    LGD!!! Let's hope the Moms bring the boys some luck! Also, just because I didn't know where else to post this: Andrew Gross‏ Verified account @AGrossRecord This can be seen as a good sign - Taylor Hall: "Both my parents have really liked how I’ve been treated by the New Jersey Devils and the trajectory our team is on. Both my parents are really happy with that, so all good."
  7. NJ.com article on Jesper Bratt

    Bumping this thread to add this cutting-edge article from NJ.com from the other day - the carpool group of Pickles, Pavel, Nico & Jesper: http://www.nj.com/devils/index.ssf/2018/02/how_a_carpool_built_bond_for_devils_nico_hischier.html Snippets: The lobby of a Jersey City apartment building serves as a meeting place for Nico Hischier, Jesper Bratt, Pavel Zacha and Blake Coleman. Well, sometimes it’s also a place for three of the young Devils to wait on the fourth. "Nico is notoriously five minutes late,” Coleman said. The four young players all moved into the same building this season, and along with breaking into the NHL together, they formed an inevitable bond off the ice. "It’s like getting my parenting practice in,” Coleman said. "Me and Pav joke that we take our kids to work every day." When the guys stay in, Bratt said they usually end up at his place, or occasionally Zacha’s. The four can unwind with a movie or play Call of Duty on Playstation 4.

    Nice little write up on some of our prospects (from Amanda Stein): https://www.nhl.com/devils/news/prospect-pipeline-seney-leading-the-way-for-warriors/c-295714410 Snippet: Merimack's difficult season has been a blessing in disguise for Seney, as it has allowed him to focus more on the defensive side of his game and help him develop into a more complete, 200-foot player. "At the next level, you have to be just as strong in the defensive zone as you are in the offensive zone," he said. "I want to be fast and have good skills and vision and make the right plays when we have the puck, but I also want to be a player my coaches can rely on in all situations, and that includes being smart in the defensive zone when we don't have the puck." Another blessing in disguise was offseason shoulder surgery, which allowed Seney to focus on his lower-body and core strength during his summer training. "You have to have a big lower frame and strong core at the next level, so that's what I worked on in the off season," he said.
  9. All purpose general trade speculation thread

    Here's the NHL.com article, so you don't have to go looking for it: https://www.nhl.com/news/devils-gm-wants-to-upgrade-without-mortgaging-future/c-295711948?tid=277548856 Snippet: "I'm not really deviating from the plan I set out to do when I took over here. I think we made our team better with some hockey deals, and whether it's some guys that came in identity-wise or for need … the Adam Henrique for Sami Vatanen deal with the Anaheim Ducks (Nov. 30) was made for certain reasons, and it helped both teams. I never say never to anything, but we'll get forwards Brian Gibbons (broken right thumb, seven games missed) and Marcus Johansson (concussion, five games missed) back at some point, and those are two key pieces for us. You're always looking to make a decent hockey deal, but if it's a rental, I don't see us getting into what those rentals might cost. Maybe it's a softer deal that solidifies a certain area or position, or maybe it's just another hockey deal that takes place. Whether it's team play or injuries, any GM will say that things can change. We'll keep our options open."

    Another week has come and gone... so that means - Prospects Updates! wooo c/o Brian Franken (Feisty, we miss you!) of AATJ: https://www.allaboutthejersey.com/2018/2/6/16976338/new-jersey-devils-prospect-update-2-6-18
  11. Appleby returned to Binghamton, Eddie Lack recalled.

    So the Devils twitter feed posted this New Jersey Devils‏Verified account @NJDevils #TacoTuesday came early this week in New Jersey. Practice right now, Ottawa because (thanks to the Devils Insiders), Eddie Lack did this....
  12. GDT: Penguins @ Devils 2/3/18 7:00PM

    Thought this was interesting... Devils Insiders‏ @DevilsInsiders At 5-on-5 tonight, Sami Vatanen was matched up against Sidney Crosby for 10:15. The Penguins had 3 SOG during that timeframe. And from the Devils Insiders a few days ago: At 5-on-5 [against Philly], Sami Vatanen was matched up against the Giroux-Couturier-Konecny line for 5 minutes. They had 1 SOG. Vatanen also squared off against Voracek and Simmonds for just under 5 minutes. They had 0 SOG.
  13. GDT: Penguins @ Devils 2/3/18 7:00PM

    FWIW, Mike Morreale (NHL.com) tweeted this: Official: #LetsGoPens goalie Casey DeSmith v #NJDevils goalie Keith Kinkaid from The Rock
  14. GDT: Penguins @ Devils 2/3/18 7:00PM

    LET'S GO DEVILS!!! From one of AG's articles today: Injury updates Neither goalie Cory Schneider (groin) nor left wing Marcus Johansson (concussion), who each missed their fourth straight game, skated on their own on Saturday. Schneider did skate on his own on Thursday and both worked out off ice on Friday.
  15. Santini down, Quenneville up

    From last night's game:
