Beautiful evening here in New Jersey, and I’m told RFA F Pavel Zacha of the @NJDevils is drawing interest via a potential trade from several clubs as NJD have 5 RFA’s .@espn @NHL #HockeyTwitter . pic.twitter.com/h1WVJyWMss
If you’re still interested in Devils-centric assessments, grades and summaries of how things went at the draft, here’s a few pieces for you: [The Athletic ($)] [NJ.com ($)] [All About the Jersey]
Post-draft media availability with Tom Fitzgerald: [NHL] And with Mark Dennehy: [NHL]
Todd Cordell makes the argument that trading for Vitek Vanecek was a worthwhile move: “Vanecek is legitimately one of the best bets Fitzgerald could have made. He was quietly very good for the Capitals in 2021-22; especially at 5v5. He posted a .926 save percentage, which tied him for 7th in the NHL with Frederik Andersen, Andrei Vasilevskiy, and Ville Husso.” [Infernal Access ($)]
