The 2017 NHL Entry Draft came and went for the New Jersey Devils. They selected Nico Hischier first overall as part of a very European draft class. This Saturday begins free agency, where teams can sign unrestricted free agents. Yesterday was the deadline for qualifying offers, so some of those restricted free agents will become unrestricted as of Saturday. There’s also that Ilya Kovalchuk thing at hand. There’s a lot going on in the offseason for the Devils. Of course, David Sarch and I talked about it all and answered questions from you, the listeners, in this episode of Talking Red, a New Jersey Devils podcast.
But there’s more than that. With the draft concluded, David managed to interview Justin Froese from Future Considerations about fourth round draft pick Nikita Popugaev and Kathryn Jean of Dobber Hockey and Recrutes about fifth round draft pick Marian Studenic and seventh round draft pick Jocktan Chainey. It’s an episode loaded with content. Thanks to both Justin and Kathryn for appearing on the show.
