  • The departure of Steve Cangialosi as Devils play-by-play commentator.
  • The arrival of Ryan Novozinsky, a beat reporter for the Devils at
  • A brief mention of Arseni Gritsyuk.
  • An auspicious mention of Scott Darling.
  • The 2022 NHL Draft from potential picks to trends to look for at the draft.
  • The Ivan Fedotov Saga and its potential impact on the draft.
  • Development camp and preseason schedule.
