Looks like Taylor Hall might make his preseason debut tonight against the Rangers:
We talked to #NJDevils coach John Hynes a lot of roster and position battles today. He had a pretty clear message in his responses: Several “bubble” guys are having strong camps and some of the guys that are considered “on the team” need to be better/are getting pushed.— Corey Masisak (@cmasisak22) September 19, 2019
It may be the preseason, but it’s always good to get a win against the Rangers. Mikhail Maltsev dunked on Brendan Smith and Alexandar Georgiev, and the Devils went on to claim a 4-3 win on Wednesday. [All About the Jersey]
A business move for Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment: Jake Reynolds has been appointed as president of the Devils, and Hugh Weber will be moved to an “elevated leadership role within HBSE.” [NHL]
Dustin Byfuglien is considering hanging up his skates:
Dustin Byfuglien, currently on personal leave from WPG, is believed to be using the time to ponder his NHL future. I’m not saying Byfuglien is retiring; I’m not saying he’s coming back to play. Only that he’s contemplating his options and there’s no timetable for a decision.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) September 18, 2019
