Garden State of Hockey- Episode 61: Round One is Done

Round one of the playoffs comes to a close and the Devils get some clarity on their first rounders.

In this episode, we take a look back at the results from the opening round of this year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Devils saw their 18th overall pick solidified so we went back through Devils history and looked for some other players they drafted around the 18-20 range (Vancouver’s pick is 20th...for now). Needless to say, those players can be plenty valuable in their own right. We also browsed through New Jersey’s third round history given the pick they regained when the Sami Vatanen trade conditions were met. Last but not least, we listed a lot of names to look at for that 18th overall pick, so start doing that research, folks. We’ve got prospects to dissect.

There will be no episode next week as we await more Devils news but we’re always happy to field questions and share some of your thoughts on the podcast. As always, thanks for listening and Let’s Go Devils!
