The much-anticipated game featuring all three Hughes brothers was a wild affair: The Devils blew a three-goal third-period lead, but Jesper Bratt’s late goal gave the team a 6-5 win over the Canucks on Tuesday night. [Devils NHL]

Warms the heart:

He’s back:

On Timo: “Meier was brought in to score goals and put away some of the many chances the Devils constantly squandered in recent years. Right now, he’s not doing enough in that regard. His on-ice impacts are also quite poor. Meier ranks 17th among 21 Devils in GAR, coming in at -0.9 through 17 games.” [Infernal Access ($)]

The Kings are perfect on the road to start the season:

“The NHL is projecting the salary cap to rise to $87.7 million for next season, Commissioner Gary Bettman said after the Board of Governors meetings concluded Tuesday. The salary cap is $83.5 million this season, up $1 million from 2022-23. It was $81.5 million from 2019-21 because of the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.” [NHL.com]

Chris Johnston: “Meanwhile, we’re starting to get some more of the details of what will be an in-season tournament in February 2025. NHL owners heard it’s likely to be a four-team event, a Four Nations style tournament, with Sweden, Finland, United States, and Canada. Those will all be NHL players participating.” [TSN]

“NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said Tuesday that the 2024 NHL draft will be held in Las Vegas and the league is finalizing plans to hold the event at the Sphere with the intent that it could also be the last centralized draft for the foreseeable future.” [ESPN]
