His name may confuse some with former blueliner Colin White, but if New Jersey Devils defense prospect Colton White ends up with a career like Colin (a member of two Stanley Cup winners: 2000, 2003; 743 games with the team plus 111 playoff games in red and black) that’d be pretty okay for a franchise

With an immediate need for help on defense the New Jersey Devils selected Reilly Walsh with their second 3rd round pick (81st overall) at the 2017 NHL Draft. The 5’11” Walsh averaged over two points per game (69 points in 30 games) at Proctor Academy during 2016-17 and is committed to attend Harvard University this

New Jersey Devils fans are familiar with college players testing free agency. Harvard University forward, and Devils draft pick, Alexander Kerfoot seems destined to do it on August 15th as, unfortunately, it doesn’t seem that Kerfoot wants to play for New Jersey. But there is another college player they could take a run at, the

Throughout August, The Hockey Writers will be releasing a series of bold predictions. Team by team, this series will take shape as we look at some of the more questionable possibilities that could come into fruition during the 2017-18 season. Up next in this season’s offseason predictions are the New Jersey Devils and their newest

If it not for the Shea Weber/P.K. Subban deal, the Taylor Hall/Adam Larsson trade would have been the talk of the 2016 offseason, for good reason. Offensive players of Hall’s caliber are not traded too often — first overall-picks being traded is even rarer. Oddly enough, when this move was first being discussed there were

It was a chance to make a good impression and that’s exactly what Bobo Carpenter did in attending the New Jersey Devils Development Camp as an invitee. Carpenter went undrafted, twice, but that hasn’t deterred him from trying to force his way into an NHL franchise just yet. “I got a call from Mr. Fitzgerald

It has been five seasons since the New Jersey Devils qualified for the NHL playoffs but it has felt much longer than that. The reason is partly because that Stanley Cup appearance in 2012 was the Devils’ lone meaningful playoff run in the past 14 years, since their 2003 Stanley Cup victory. Between then and

After this upcoming season could we see Mackenzie Blackwood make his NHL debut as the backup to Cory Schneider in 2018-19? Very possibly, if everything goes well; but first things first. Blackwood is about to enter his second full season as a pro in the New Jersey Devils organization and he doesn’t turn 21-years-old until

The New Jersey Devils announced three signings on Tuesday. Forward Joseph Blandisi, defenseman Mirco Mueller, and goaltender Scott Wedgewood are the recipients of new contracts. That leaves Damon Severson and Stefan Noesen as the only NHL regulars without new deals. Considering no Devils opted for salary arbitration, you can expect the announcement of their new

Addition by subtraction. If New Jersey Devils general manager Ray Shero has achieved nothing else in what has been an eventful offseason for his club, he’s been diligent in cutting dead weight. In a rebuild, there’s a fine line between carrying useful veterans to help rub off on a young squad and random roster fillers

It has been an extremely successful offseason for the New Jersey Devils thus far. It started off with drafting Nico Hischier first overall in the 2017 NHL entry draft, which was the right decision in my mind. Then, general manager Ray Shero worked his magic. First, he drafted several intriguing prospects such as Jesper Boqvist, Nikita

Now in the midst of his second Development Camp with the New Jersey Devils goaltender Evan Cormier is a little less nervous, a little wiser, and more focused on what he needs to continue doing as he develops under the tutelage of an NHL franchise. The 19-year-old Cormier was drafted in the 4th round (105

With the first-overall pick for the first time in their history, the New Jersey Devils selected Swiss-sensation Nico Hischier at the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. Being selected first comes with a certain level of expectations. Not all of those expectations are entirely fair and they have dramatically increased in recent years, primarily because of what Connor

I recently wrote a piece about potential line combinations for the New Jersey Devils in 2017-18, as it is an exciting offensive group with a lot of potential. I was going to do the same for potential defensive pairings but it would be pretty underwhelming in comparison. Also, I think Ray Shero will add to

NHL free agency has finally arrived and a lot of names have already switched teams.

For the first time in a long time, the New Jersey Devils seem to be in position to land one of the top free agents on the market. No, not just Kevin Shattenkirk, but also polarizing Russian winger Ilya Kovalchuk. The former $100 million man has been planning to return to the NHL for months and is

Kevin Shattenkirk is the biggest name slated to hit free agency on Saturday. The former Washington Capitals defenseman will have no shortage of suitors as many teams will seek to improve their blue line. A long list of interested teams has already formed, ready to make a run at the American defenseman. The New Jersey Devils will be

After an entirely action-packed week, the New Jersey Devils are heading into the re-sign and free agency period with a tremendous need on the defensive side. The forward corps, with the addition of Nico Hischier, is in far better form than any time since the team’s most recent Stanley Cup run. Throw in a possible

So it is finally decided. With the first overall pick, the New Jersey Devils selected Nico Hischier over Nolan Patrick. Hischier is pegged as the more dynamic, creative forward and that is exactly what the Devils need. Scouts and mock drafts were split 50/50 on who should go first, but Ray Shero and his staff felt

After two months of buildup, two months of speculation, and two months of debate the New Jersey Devils finally revealed their plan when they selected Nico Hischier with the first overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft. New Jersey should have been selecting sixth overall but won the Draft Lottery and selected the Swiss-born Hischier.

The Expansion Draft for the Vegas Golden Knights is rapidly approaching. Luckily, the New Jersey Devils do not have a surplus of highly-talented players, meaning they will not lose any key pieces when the Knights make their selection. Luckily (again!), there are a lot of teams who might lose a key player. Those teams will

With the way the New Jersey Devils performed in 2016-17, it is difficult to look back fondly on the season and identify any stars in the making. Despite the team’s 28th ranked 70 points, there was some good to come out of 2016-17. Here are the three Devils who won fans’ hearts at a time

Any New Jersey Devils fan that watched last season can tell you that the team needs major upgrades on defense. Turnovers, sloppy positioning, and lack of production were all too common of themes from the blue line in 2016-17.

It’s no secret that the New Jersey Devils are barren at defense. The main roster blue line has noticeable shortages and the prospect pool has dried up. An important part of John Hynes’ fast, attacking, supportive strategy relies on defenders to drive play up ice to create chances. A low scoring team cannot go far unless its

When the New Jersey Devils began their rise to prominence, their first round draft choices were mostly can’t-miss. General manager Lou Lamoriello selected the likes of Bill Guerin, Martin Brodeur, Scott Niedermayer, Brian Rolston, Jason Smith, Denis Pederson, Petr Sykora and Scott Gomez. Yet, not all of their picks were beauties. Until recent vintage, their AHL

We could very easily call this ‘Rebuilding the Devils in 5 Moves’ but for the purposes of this article we will stick with four for now and assume that the New Jersey Devils select Nolan Patrick with the number one overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft. Winning the lottery changed a lot of perception

In just his third NHL game defenseman Michael Kapla was on the ice opposite arguably the best player in the game Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
