The New Jersey Devils opened up development camp on Monday. There are plenty of rookies in attendance including some just drafted last week. Others include invites such as Brendan Fitzgerald, son of Devils GM Tom Fitzgerald, who are trying to make the most of an opportunity. Columbus welcomed their biggest acquisition of the summer yesterday and for Devils fans, it’s going to be weird looking at him in new colors. The Penguins need some bottom-six help and a former Devil forward might be a good bargain. And the Islanders struck out on another potential top-six forward acquisition.
Let’s get to some news.
