The Devils have signed forward prospect Jesper Boqvist (No. 36, 2017 Draft) to a 3-year, entry-level contract. Boqvist had a solid season (13-22-35 in 51 gms for Brynas in the SHL) after breaking wrist in 2017-18.

What a tremendous young core we have developing. Even without winning the next Patrick Kane in the draft lottery, I would have been (and still am) absolutely over the moon to see Ty Smith and Boqvist suit up. Also would be very interested to see Nico, Bratt, Butcher, Anderson, Blackwood take the next step. Great time to be a Devils fan!

I posted it in the off-season thread this morning, but Boqvist signed his entry level deal. Here’s a Q&A he did with Amanda: https://www.nhl.com/devils/news/feature-qa-with-jesper-boqvist/c-307786706

Seems like a good and cool young kid.  It's nice to see guys who are excited and will probably be grateful, humble, and hungry.

Amanda's real interview:

Amanda: Who do you think you are?

JB: I'm Jesper

Amanda: What gives you the right?

Really solid article on Pasic, I didn't really notice him playing alongside Boqvist at camp but playing in the Allsvenskan, he should develop in a quality league, hopefully like Bratt who was in a similar position.

Edit: Two thing that gets ignored quite a bit when a player get drafted is PIM and +- . Since 2016 he is a +45 and 14 PIM in 172 games. If he makes the NHL as a waterbug or as the next Bratt, he will probably draw many more PIM's than he takes. +- shows someone atleast attempting to be responsible or someone who possesses the puck.
