The Devils lost 4-1 on Wednesday night to the Coyotes, a team that is notable this season for ACTIVELY TANKING. Normally, you’d think that would be the sort of loss that would prompt some major changes, but … well, that has not happened. Eat Arby’s. [NHL]
“When (Jack) Hughes plays in his first NHL All-Star Game on Feb. 5 in Las Vegas (3 p.m. ET; ABC, SN, TVAS), he will be the youngest participant since Jeff Skinner represented the Carolina Hurricanes as an 18-year-old in 2011. At 20 years, 267 days, Hughes will be the fourth player in Devils franchise history to appear before turning 21, joining Kirk Muller (twice), Scott Gomez and Joe Cirella.” [NHL]

The update would allow all 32 teams to complete their 82-game schedule by the season’s original end date of April 29.” [NHL]
