Emily Kaplan: “Many in the league are curious how aggressive the New Jersey Devils will be considering their blazing hot start. When I saw GM Tom Fitzgerald in New Jersey on Monday, he reiterated what he told me earlier in the year: He’s always looking for ways to improve, but philosophically believes a team is built during the summer, not during the season. So he’s looking for ‘hockey trades’ with the long-term vision in mind.” [ESPN ($)]

Congratulations to Erika Wachter:

While not a link, the Devils players (including IR players), the mascot N.J., and alumni (Jim Dowd, Grant Marshall, Chico, Bruce Driver, Dano) will be visiting various RWJBarnabas Health hospitals to visit patients and staff in departments such as pediatrics, oncology, cardiac rehab, orthopedics, and others across the state tomorrow. This is will be in-person after a two-year hiatus of visiting patients.

Where might Brock Boeser end in a trade? Pierre LeBrun: “So [Boeser’s] agent Ben Hankinson continues to talk to teams [and] he’s talked to more than half a dozen teams since last week. I don’t think this thing is imminent and I think it’s going to take a lot of work between now and the March 3 NHL trade deadline.” [TSN]

Nathan MacKinnon will miss some time for the Avs:

Matt Murray with a thoroughly impressive shutout against the Stars:
