The New Jersey Devils have cooled off from their surprising start to the season. For the most part, the veterans have been the ones getting it done in Newark, but there have been a handful of prospects that have received opportunities with the big club. For the most part, the rookies have not taken full advantage of the opportunity presented to them. In the best interest of the franchise, some prospects are on the slow path so they can take on bigger roles in the future. Read more»

There were low expectations for the New Jersey Devils entering the 2015-16 season. With a core of returning players that struggled to generate offense last season, along with a new head coach and his system, there was likely to be some adjustment period.

The Albany Devils feature a pair of rookie centers that play different styles of hockey who are both adjusting to life in the pros this fall. Joseph Blandisi and Blake Coleman come from different backgrounds and fill different roles with the New Jersey DevilsAHL affiliate, but the two live together and get along well both on and off the ice. They’re both hoping to hone their craft and make a push toward the NHL as a part of the Devils’ youth movement. Read more»
