Devils Daily: Devils Coaching Update; Mitch Marner to Chicago?

Published

New Jersey Devils

Certainly, everyone is on the edge of their seat this week. Last week, Pierre LeBruin reported the New Jersey Devils wanted to get their coaching situation sorted out in seven to 10 days.

That was seven days ago.

On Monday, Elliotte Friedman named the Devils (as well as the Toronto Maple Leafs) as the next closest teams to figure out their next bench bosses. A decision is seemingly close.

In the links, an update on who the new leading head coaching candidate is in New Jersey. A reminder that this situation remains fluid.

Also, Nico Hischier avoided disaster but had an injury scare at Worlds. Plus, the Devils attending the world tournament can’t stop filling the net.

Elsewhere, could Chicago nab Mitch Marner? The Sam Bennett noise won’t go away. Valeri Nichuskin enters the player assistance program, again. And much more.

Let’s do that hockey.
