Next time the wheel comes around, Stepan is going to get paid. Big-time. His offensive game will flourish under new head coach Alain Vigneault.
The Devils have given Henrique the keys to their car because they know he won’t crash it. Heck, he won’t even put a dent in the Devils’ red Mercedes, and will take pride in waxing it monthly.
The New Jersey Devils have re-signed center Adam Henrique to a new multi-year contract. Henrique will enter his third NHL season in September, and will be counted on heavily on a team light on offense.
The New Jersey Devils have signed forward Jaromir Jagr to make up for some of the scoring lost with the recent retirement of Ilya Kovalchuk.
There will be a ton of pressure on Adam Henrique to step forward and be a key player for the Devils in 2013-14.
A week after the New Jersey Devils lost star forward Ilya Kovalchuk to sudden retirement, general manager Lou Lamoriello is still plotting out the future of the Devils.
No team has ever come back from 0-2 deficits in back-to-back series in NHL history. If there’s ever a team that might do it, it’s Tortorella’s prideful Rangers.
With Ilya Kovalchuk on the mend and stars slumping, it’s imperative Devils GM Lou Lamoriello acquires a veteran scorer before the April 3 trade deadline.
I ask Rangers fans to carefully examine which side of the fence they’re on. Ridding of Tortorella before season’s end or in the summer would probably set the Rangers back a decade.
Martin Brodeur playfully asked what else he could have done for the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night, and coach Peter DeBoer had an idea. “If he would’ve got in a fight, he would’ve done a little bit of everything for us,” DeBoer said.
Should the Rangers not get the job done at Prudential Center, bigger questions will be asked of their underperforming stars, and the pressure will be tightened on John Tortorella. It’s up to the Blueshirts to bury their demons in New Jersey.
The player who couldn’t find his place in LA and was cast aside by the Kings is turning out to be the Devils’ treasure.
Ilya Kovalchuk capped New Jersey’s three-goal first period with his NHL-leading fourth short-handed goal, and the Devils beat the mistake-prone Philadelphia Flyers 5-2 on Wednesday night.
Nate Thompson scored twice and Martin St. Louis and rookie Alexander Killorn each had a goal and an assist as the Tampa Bay Lightning snapped a five-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the struggling New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night.
Ilya Kovalchuk and the determined Devils have the fortitude needed to win the Atlantic and perhaps make another visit to the Stanley Cup finals.
