The New Jersey Devils have had an incredible offseason retaining their own long-term and bringing in some new firepower. However, there’s still more to be done. The Devils goaltending pipeline looks pretty good for their future. So much so that the goaltenders in the pipeline inspire each other. With the new talent drafted to the NHL, the Devils still have some of the best prospects in the league. Plus, a former Devil provides the Pittsburgh Penguins with the size they needed, the Colorado Avalanche bet on Ross Colton and more.
Let’s get to some news.
New Jersey Devils
New Jersey Hockey Now: Devils GM Tom Fitzgerald has put on a masterclass of work this offseason. However, there are still remaining questions that need answers before the season begins in October.
NJ Advance Media: It’s safe to say that not many predicted the rise of Akira Schmid in 2022-23. All of Schmid’s success has another Devils goaltending prospect, Tyler Brennan, looking up to him.
The Athletic: Following the 2023 NHL Entry Draft, there are some new prospects in town and the top prospects list needs some reshuffling. The Devils’ future remains looking bright with a few New Jersey prospects making the list.
National Hockey Now
Pittsburgh Hockey Now: The Penguins needed to add size to their blue line. They got it in the form of former Devil defenseman, Ryan Graves, who stands at 6-foot-5, 220-pounds.
Boston Hockey Now: The Bruins signed some depth recently that leaves them with just $5.4 million in cap space. However, Boston still has some restricted free agents to sign and seemingly not enough cap space to do it. Could GM Don Sweeney be looking to dump another salary?
Colorado Hockey Now: The Avs recently signed newly acquired forward Ross Colton to a 4x$4 contract. Betting big on the New Jersey native is a calculated move by GM Joe Sakic.
Buffalo Hockey Now: The Buffalo Sabres announced on Tuesday they will be hosting the 2023 Prospects Challenge at the LECOM Harborcenter from September 15 – 18. The Devils and their prospects will be attending the event.
