Tonight is the first of two main events for the NHL offseason: the 2022 NHL Draft. It is in person in Montreal. The New Jersey Devils are picking second and have seven more picks to make tomorrow. This post previews the event and provides more information about it. This is the more website please follow up here for WJC 2022 Live Stream
The New Jersey Devils have the second overall pick in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft, and general manager (GM) Tom Fitzgerald may use it in a trade to acquire a forward who can end their playoff drought next year. The urgency to take the next step in their rebuild is real, as the team has not won a playoff series since 2012 and has not qualified for the postseason in nine of the last ten seasons. They have a plethora of young talent that will interest GMs of rebuilding franchises, such as Kyle Davidson of the Chicago Blackhawks or Don Sweeney of the Boston Bruins. If I may be of any help to others, I’d personally be thankful to help via what I have learned from here. NFR Match Schedule
Tracking the Devils extremely dim odds of making the playoffs.
Just a quick video I made for Rico. Sorry some of the clips are low quality, I couldn't find any higher quality ones.
Goals for Garrett is hosting their Annual Night Out with the New Jersey Devils fundraising event at the Saturday, 4/8 Devils vs. Islanders game at Prudential Center. Goals for Garrett was founded in 2014 by New Jersey resident Kevin McCormack. Devastated by the loss of his son, Garrett, to bicuspid aortic disease, Kevin wanted to do something that would honor Garrett’s life while helping others. Each year Goals for Garrett organizes a night out with the New Jersey Devils as its primary annual fundraiser. All proceeds benefit Hockey in New Jersey, which inspires youth to develop life skills, succeed academically and create positive relationships through the sport of hockey.

Chill is beyond the word. Jeff Petry guides Kyle Palmieri into Carey Price. While one may understand Price's frustration, taking multiple shots at a fallen, defenseless Palmieri is beyond acceptable. Especially when Petry continues to pin him down. Price only received two roughing minors. How is he in this game?
Per the article, Trouba's request isn't about money; it's because he feels the right side of Winnepeg's defense is loaded and that he is a better fit elsewhere.
As we know, NJ now has a decent hole on the right side. So a few questions come up;
1) Is Trouba a fit on the right side given the players the Devils have (Severson/Santini mainly)?
2) Is it worth the package of picks/prospects/players it would take to trade for him and what would said package be?
Devils sign defenseman Brandon Gormley to one year contract.
An April fool's joke? By the Devils? You're yanking my chain, right?
Kyle Palmieri scored a two on one goal assisted by Reid Boucher in the second period. The goal was not nearly enough to make a difference as the Devils fall 6-1. Devils play next this Thursday against the Snarks in San Jose.
