After staving off the inevitable, the New Jersey Devils are fully invested into a transitional period. This comes as long-time general manager Lou Lamoriello steps aside for Ray Shero to steer the franchise. While Lamoriello will still have his say as the club’s president, Shero has begun to shift the organization in a new direction. Now with Head Coach John Hynes in place, Shero will focus on the upcoming 2015 NHL Draft in Sunrise, Florida. He will have his hands full as he begins to rebuild the farm system and select players that match his new vision for the Devils as a fast, attacking squad. Read more»

The 2010 trade deadline marked a dynamic change in the New Jersey Devils organization, as GM Lou Lamoriello went against his principles to acquire star forward Ilya Kovalchuk—giving up a 1st round draft pick to make it happen. After sending a 5th rounder to Toronto in exchange for Martin Skoula, the Devils went to the 2010 NHL Draft in Los Angeles with just five selections. Read more»

Jacob Josefson is coming off his first full season with the New Jersey Devils, who drafted him in the first round of the 2009 NHL Draft, although he had seen time in the previous four seasons. With just 11 points and a zero rating in 62 games, it’s felt that Josefson is showing himself to more likely be a lower-line player for the time being, and that was been the case at the 2015 IIHF World Championship. Still, Josefson scored a goal against France and totaled four points in eight games during this tournament. Read more»
