It was a big weekend. The Devils picked six players in the 2018 NHL Draft, and we covered them all. Hope you followed along. Here’s a great summary from John if you’re looking for the high-level view: [All About the Jersey]
John Tavares, however, is giving us a sprinkling of excitement, as he plans to chat with a handful of teams during the interview period before July 1. Who’s in? Who’s out?
Tavares list just about finalized, it appears.— Arthur Staple (@StapeAthletic) June 25, 2018
Leafs, Sharks, Stars are in, as mentioned a couple days ago. Believe the Bruins are in as well.
Canadiens and Vegas not on the list as of now.#Isles will get in there too, of course.
Sounds like Tampa and/or Nashville could round out Tavares’ list of visitors starting Monday. Might end up being six teams instead of five, plus #Isles.— Arthur Staple (@StapeAthletic) June 25, 2018
Mark your calendar: Feb. 5, 2019, Kovalchuk returns to Newark. Will it be Free Rotten Tomato Night at Prudential Center?
Could Rick Nash make a return to Columbus?
Nash, who turned 34 last week, is looking for a multi-year deal, and Columbus is at the top of his list. But could easily return to Boston or sign elsewhere if he believes he can win a Stanley Cup.— Aaron Portzline (@Aportzline) June 25, 2018
