Devils' prospect dealing with Graves' disease | 07/20/2014 9:50 AM
News
Center Graham Black is among the New Jersey Devils' top prospects despite the fact that he was diagnosed with Graves' disease at age 15.
The Bergen Record

Impact
Now 21, Black is confident he has beaten the disease by killing it off with radioactive iodine treatments to his thyroid. This past season, he led Swift Current of the WHL with 97 points on 34 goals and 63 assists. The 6-foot, 180-pounder will be looking to take the next step in his development as a first-year pro in 2014-15, likely with the AHL Albany Devils. "I feel like I'm invincible almost because that [disease] tried to stop me and wasn't able to," Black said. Graves' disease is an immune system disorder that causes an overproduction of thyroid hormones. For Black, a 2012 Devils fifth-round draft pick, this boosted his metabolism to the point that he was losing weight in bunches and unable to sleep for days at a time. Black began radioactive iodine treatments that "killed of" his thyroid cells. Now, he simply takes a hormone-replacement pill daily.
Martin Brodeur continues search for right fit | 07/18/2014 3:48 PM
News
Martin Brodeur is "still looking for the right fit" as the free agent market dies down.
NHL.com

Impact
Brodeur is willing to play for a non-contender, but he'd like to play "a lot" in that case. Ultimately, it wouldn't be shocking if he doesn't end up with a contract going into the preseason. As great as his career has been, he's not the same goaltender he once was. Which is to be expected at the age of 42, but it's still the reason why he hasn't gotten an offer to his liking yet. Brodeur might end up signing during the season though if a team needs a replacement after one of their goaltenders suffers a major injury.
Myles Bell is limited in development camp | 07/18/2014 9:42 AM
News
Myles Bell (knee surgery) took part in some practices during development camp, but skipped the team's scrimmages and contact drills.
The Bergen Record

Impact
"They don't see any sense in overdoing it in July and potentially getting injured when I can just ease into it and be ready for main camp in September," Bell said. The Devils really had no reason to push Bell for the sake of development camp. He thinks he'll be completely recovered by the time the Devils' training camp starts.
Quenneville looks strong in development camp | 07/18/2014 9:33 AM
News
Devils coach Pete DeBoer liked what he saw from John Quenneville during his first development camp.
The Bergen Record

Impact
Quenneville was taken by New Jersey with the 30th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. "He's had a great week," DeBoer said. "This is the first step on his road to the NHL and it's not going to be an easy one. It never is for young men, but he's made a good first impression, I think, on everybody both with what he's done on the ice, but I think more importantly with how he carries himself off the ice." Quenneville had 25 goals and 58 points in 61 WHL games in 2013-14.
Jacob Josefson inks a two-year extension | 07/17/2014 3:10 PM
News
Jacob Josefson has inked a two-year, $1.6 million contract with the New Jersey Devils.
Rich Chere on Twitter

Impact
Josefson had a goal and three points in 27 games in 2013-14. His deal is one way, so his chances of making the team are good, but he's likely to be limited to third or fourth line duties.
Damon Severson aims to start NHL career | 07/15/2014 6:40 PM
News
Damon Severson feels like the time is right to start his NHL career.
The Bergen Record

Impact
Severson was unable to secure a roster spot during the Devils' 2013 training camp and ended up spending the 2013-14 campaign with the WHL Kelowna Rockets. "This year there are spots available, spots to be had and I feel like I'm ready to play in the NHL," he said. "I'm just trying to learn everything possible each and every day to get myself to that final destination. And you can't be complacent. You've got to be the best you can every day and you've got to be getting better each time you step on the ice." He's right about there being slots available and Devils coach Pete DeBoer has also brought Severson up as someone that will be competing for a job. That being said, Severson has a bit of an uphill battle ahead of him as he will likely have to beat out at least one of Adam Larsson, Jon Merrill, or Eric Gelinas in order to make the team's roster.
Scott Wedgewood will fight for backup job | 07/15/2014 9:46 AM
News
Scott Wedgewood intends to battle for the Devils' backup gig during training camp.
The Bergen Record

Impact
"Yes. You don't want to shoot too far ahead of yourself and get too cocky, but you don't want to come in anywhere being complacent," said Wedgewood. "There are obviously a lot of people ahead of me if you were to look at a depth chart on paper, but I think it's definitely how you play and the way you handle yourself in situations." Wedgewood is a long shot to make the team as he'd have to beat out both Scott Clemmensen and Keith Kinkaid for the backup role.
DeBoer: Severson will compete for roster spot | 07/15/2014 9:42 AM
News
New Jersey Devils coach Pete DeBoer thinks Damon Severson will compete for a roster spot during training camp.
The Bergen Record

Impact
Adam Larsson, Jon Merrill, Eric Gelinas, and Severson will be fighting for as many as three roster spots. Larsson has the inside track as he got a one-way deal and between the four, Severson is the least likely to make the squad. Still, DeBoer isn't ruling him out at this stage.
Martin Brodeur's sons attend Devils' camp | 07/15/2014 9:38 AM
News
Although Martin Brodeur is no longer under contract with New Jersey, it's clear that he still has a strong relationship with the Devils.
The Bergen Record

Impact
Evidence on that could be seen on Monday as his three sons, Anthony, Jeremy, and William all reported for the Devils' development camp. Anthony was drafted by the Devils in 2013, so his presence was expected, but Jeremy and William are Anthony's younger, twin brothers and can't be drafted until 2015. Devils GM Lou Lamoriello contacted Martin Brodeur to see if they would be interested in attending New Jersey's development camp. Lamoriello thinks Brodeur will eventually join the Devils' organization on the management side once he decides to hang up his skates.

News
Myles Bell (knee surgery) wasn't on the ice for the start of the Devils' development camp.
New Jersey Online

Impact
It sounds like the Devils are apparently erring on the side of caution when it comes to his rehab, which makes sense given that this is just a summer camp. Bell had 42 goals and 77 points in 69 WHL games last season.
G Martin Brodeur might sign deal in midseason | 07/13/2014 8:06 PM
News
Free agent goaltender Martin Brodeur isn't ruling out the idea of signing a new contract during next season's regular schedule.
prohockeytalk.com

Impact
"On or around July 1, we explored a few possibilities for Marty that made somewhat sense. That didn't come to fruition," Brodeur's agent, Pat Brisson, was quoted as saying in the Bergen Record. "Marty has a lot to offer, but it will be the right fit and this may come later this summer or even early in the season. He is in no rush until the right fit appears. "In the meantime he is getting ready the same way he has the past 20 seasons." Brodeur, 42, is a sure-fire nominee for the Hall of Fame. Many feel he is the greatest goalie in NHL history. Last season, with the Devils, he had 19 wins in 39 games and a GAA of 2.51.
Devils lock up goaltender Cory Schneider | 07/09/2014 4:11 PM
News
Cory Schneider has agreed to a multi-year contract extension with the New Jersey Devils.
Rich Chere on Twitter

Impact
New Jersey won't provide any further details regarding the contract, but it's reportedly a seven-year, $42 million contract. If that's true then it seems like a fair amount for Schneider. He's never had the opportunity to serve as a team's clear cut starter, but he's been a great goaltender for years and that should continue in his expanded role.
Peter DeBoer upbeat about 2014-15 Devils | 07/09/2014 9:55 AM
News
New Jersey Devils coach Peter DeBoer expects the team to bounce back after missing the playoffs in back-to-back campaigns.
The Bergen Record

Impact
"I'm real excited about the upcoming year," DeBoer said. "We've had a couple of transition years, transitioning through Zach Parise and (Ilya) Kovalchuk leaving and I like the mix of guys we have now and I feel real confident about our ability to be very competitive." The Devils certainly have a chance to make the playoffs next season, but they're not exactly a good team. They haven't lured or developed a player of Parise or Kovalchuk's caliber since losing them and their core of forwards looks lackluster as a result. If they make the playoffs, it will be thanks to goaltender Cory Schneider.
Will Martin Brodeur find a new home in NHL? | 07/06/2014 9:55 AM
News
As he hunts for a new employer on the free-agent market, Martin Brodeur might be the victim of his own formidable shadow, which he would cast on a team's No. 1 goaltender, even as the most willing and conscientious of backups.
NY Post

Impact
That's the opinion of New York Post hockey columnist Larry Brooks, who, like most hockey followers, are waiting to see where the future Hall of Fame goalie winds up as a free agent, if anywhere. Brooks suggests two destinations: Columbus, where Sergei Bobrovsky has established himself as an unassailable No. 1 over the past two seasons, and where Curtis McElhinney is the backup for a young, growing team with championship aspirations. "And though the dynamics in Pittsburgh are difficult to read, it is impossible to believe the Penguins wouldn't be better served with Brodeur rather than Thomas Greiss as the alternative to Marc-Andre Fleury." Brooks writes.

Devils will look to re-sign Andy Greene | 07/03/2014 7:00 PM
News
The Devils would like to get Andy Greene locked up to a contract extension this summer.
The Bergen Record

Impact
"We will be talking to Andy," GM Lou Lamoriello said. "Right now, we're letting Andy settle in. He's getting married. We will definitely do our best to keep Andy, by all means." Greene has one season remaining on his current contract.
Devils nearing extension for Cory Schneider | 07/03/2014 6:55 PM
News
New Jersey GM Lou Lamoriello is optimistic that Cory Schneider will sign a contract extension soon.
The Bergen Record

Impact
"It's a work in progress and we're getting closer and closer," Lamoriello said. "Hopefully, we'll have that done in the very near future." Schneider will be the Devils' number one goaltender next season and he is eligible for unrestricted free agency after the 2014-15 campaign.
Devils keep goalie Maxime Clermont | 07/03/2014 5:04 PM
News
Maxime Clermont has signed a one-year deal with New Jersey.
The Bergen Record

Impact
His two-way contract will pay him $605,000 in the NHL or $50,000 in the minors. He played with AHL Albany and two ECHL teams last season. In 17 games with Elmira, he posted a 6-9-0-1 record with a 3.34 GAA and an .892 save percentage. Clermont went 5-3-0-1 with a 3.35 GAA and an .891 save percentage in 10 matches with Orlando.
New Jersey re-signs Keith Kinkaid | 07/03/2014 4:58 PM
News
New Jersey has signed Keith Kinkaid to a one-year, two-way contract.
The Bergen Record

Impact
He'll earn $600,000 in the NHL and an AHL salary of $105,000. He's the frontrunner to be Cory Schneider's understudy in 2014-15, but the Devils have Scott Clemmensen playing on a one-year, two-way deal as well as an insurance policy.
Keith Kinkaid set to compete for backup job | 07/03/2014 10:55 AM

Keith Kinkaid may be in line to be Cory Schneider's backup next season.
The Star-Ledger

Impact
GM Lou Lamoriello is looking for Kinkaid to take the role even though the team signed Scott Clemmensen to a one-year, two-way contract on July 1. "I'm just happy they're going to give me an opportunity, but nothing is set in stone," Kinkaid said. "I still have to battle Clemmensen for the backup job. I'm just glad I have the opportunity to do so. It's going to be a great competition in camp and I look forward to it."
Martin Havlat feels familiar with Devils | 07/03/2014 10:41 AM
News
Martin Havlat is moving into a comfortable situation with the Devils.
The Bergen Record

Impact
He spoke with fellow Czechs Patrik Elias and Marek Zidlicky before signing with New Jersey. "So, I'm pretty close with those two guys for sure," Havlat said. "But, over the 14 years - 15 years it's going to be - I've been talking to Patty a lot, so I know a little bit about this organization. Right now, I became a free agent a couple days ago and I had to make a decision and after talking to Lou (Lamoriello) and a few of the guys I got the chance to come (to New Jersey) and I'm very happy I can be part of the Devils for the next year." Injuries have hindered him for the last three seasons and he's a risky bet to remain healthy in 2014-14.

"I think I can still play in the NHL, but it's up to me to prove that. It is my intention to make the team." Keith Kinkaid, 24, will be his main competition for the job.

Stephen Gionta has re-signed with the Devils on a two-year contract.
Tom Gulitti on Twitter

Impact
He got a one-way deal with the team after skating in 66 games last season. Gionta recorded four goals and 11 points, so he doesn't have any fantasy value.

Clemmensen was drafted in the eighth round by the Devils in 1997 and he spent six years with the organization from 2001-07 before leaving for one season and coming back for the 2008-09 campaign. This past season, he played 17 games with the Florida Panthers, where he posted a 3.09 GAA and an .896 save percentage. He has a chance to be the Devils' backup next year.

Impact
After not agreeing to remain in Calgary, Cammalleri received a huge contract with New Jersey. Cammalleri had 26 goals and 45 points in only 63 games with Calgary in 2013-14 and fantasy fans should expect 30-plus goals and 55-plus points if he is able to remain healthy.

Anton Volcehnkov cleared waivers after his buyout by the Devils.

News
Defenseman Adam Larsson has reportedly agreed to terms with the Devils on a new one-year, $900,000 contract.
Tom Gulitti on Twitter

Impact
The blueliner thought to be a surefire NHLer when he was drafted has struggled to find consistency at the highest level, but optimism remains due to his relatively young age. This contract agreement puts to rest the chatter from earlier in the offseason suggesting Larsson may be interested in a signing a deal to play in Sweden.
Mark Fayne returning to the Devils unlikely | 06/29/2014 9:07 AM
News
Mark Fayne's agent Peter Fish says that the chances of the defenseman returning to the Devils are becoming less likely.
The Bergen Record

Impact
Fayne is garnering interest from some teams as he approaches unrestricted free agency on July 1. The 27-year-old blueliner underwent surgery in April to repair the core muscle in his left groin and will be fine for the start of training camp. He is a solid defensive rearguard who managed four goals and 11 points in 72 games last season. Stay tuned.
Brodeur's goal is Cup, role is important, too | 06/28/2014 11:17 PM
News
Martin Brodeur's priority is to win another Stanley Cup, though his role also will be important to him in where he decides to play next year, according to TVA's Louis Jean.
Louis Jean on Twitter

Impact
Brodeur is set to be an unrestricted free agent. Jean reports that Brodeur would be OK with a one-year deal and says that the Blackhawks, Bruins, Penguins and Maple Leafs have expressed interest. "If I get a job as a No. 1, I think I'm able to handle the workload of 50 to 60 games," Brodeur told Sportsnet. "If I don't, and I get a backup job on a team I feel has a chance to win the Stanley Cup, anything between 20 to 30 games I'd be comfortable with in the right situation." It's unlikely the 42-year-old is brought in to start anywhere at this stage of his career.

News
The Rangers have "legitimate interest" in Mark Fayne, according to the NY Post's Larry Brooks.
NY Post

Impact
Brooks says the Rangers have already "checked in with" Fayne's camp. New York is doing its due diligence just in case it cannot sign Anton Stralman, which doesn't seem likely at this point. Fayne, 27, is set to be an unrestricted free agent. He is a right-handed shot who could slot in on the second pair with Marc Staal. Fayne recorded 11 points last year and has been a solid possession player in his career. He earned $1.4 million last season.
Devils select Joshua Jacobs at 41st overall | 06/28/2014 11:14 AM
News
New Jersey chose Joshua Jacobs with the 41st overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
Rotoworld.com

Impact
There's a lot to like about what Jacobs brings to the table. He has the measurables for an NHL defenseman; he can affect a game on both ends of the ice and he is a fluid skater. There's big upside as a two-way blueliner here. While he's able to connect on the long home run pass and make the quick play in transition, he also has a hard shot from the point. Typical of a young player, his aggressiveness and judgment need refining. The Michigan State commit's focus wanes at times. His physical game has been described as "efficient" and he uses his size and reach to his advantage to break up plays.
Devil GM compares draft pick to Adam Henrique | 06/28/2014 9:29 AM
News
The Devils were thrilled that they were still able to select John Quenneville, the second cousin of ex-Devils defenseman and current Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville, with the 30th and final pick of the first round Friday night of the NHL draft.
Newark Star-Ledger

Impact
General manager Lou Lamoriello compared Quenneville to Devils center Adam Henrique. "David (Conte, Devils director of scouting) really liked him," Lamoriello said. "He's sort of an Adam Henrique type of player. He can play in all situations. We're very happy. We were picking at 30." Lamoriello said the Devils had Quenneville rated higher than that. They sweated out the final few picks before they selected hoping that no other team would take him. Quenneville compared his game to that of Dallas' Jamie Benn. "I like to play a simple game," Quenneville said. "When I watch the Devils play I think I see that. I'm a two-way player and I like to chip in offensively. I think I can fit into the way they play." Joel Quenneville, now 55, played 74 games for the Devils in their inaugural season in New Jersey of 1982-83. John Quenneville said he knew "nothing" about his second cousin's history with the team.

John Quenneville has been chosen by the New Jersey Devils with the 30th pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
Rotoworld.com

Impact
The Devils originally didn't have a pick in the first round because of the Ilya Kovalchuk contract issue, but they ended up being awarded the last pick in the opening round of the 2014 draft. With it they picked the second cousin of Chicago coach and former Devil Joel Quenneville. He's a hard-working, two-way player who has good all round skills. He projects to be a serviceable bottom-six forward at the NHL level.

Martin Brodeur excited about the prospect of playing for a new team.
The Bergen Record

Impact
Brodeur plans to test the unrestricted free agent market in the hopes of playing for one more season before retiring. "It's a little bit of the unknown," Brodeur said. "I know it's only for one season, but I'm excited to see the interest. That's the big thing for me - to see what kind of team or what kind of situation I can get myself into. That's the excitement part. For me, to go outside the bubble, that's something I never did. So, it will be interesting." He'll probably find a team that's willing to give him a chance to compete for the starting job, but we doubt he'll enter the 2014-15 campaign as a team's clear number one.

Ryane Clowe (concussion) is 'fine' according to Devils GM Lou Lamoriello.

"Montreal would be tough," the future Hall of Famer says. "For me, I'm so used to being in the States and playing in the type of markets I'm used to playing in. But, again, I don't know. That's something that when we come to that bridge, we'll go over it. But it's something that, put it this way, they're not too much on my radar." Carey Price is the Canadiens' No. 1 goaltender, backed up by Peter Budaj and Dustin Tokarski, who played relatively well in the Stanley Cup playoffs after Price was injured. Brodeur has said he will explore the market when his contract with the New Jersey Devils expires June 30. He is looking for a more prominent role, ideally on a Stanley Cup contender, after splitting time with Cory Schneider this season, when the Devils did not make the playoffs. Brodeur says 2014-15 will likely be his last season.
Brodeur says next year is probably his last | 06/13/2014 9:03 AM
News
Martin Brodeur said the 2014-15 campaign is "probably going to be my last year."
The Bergen Record

Impact
He's getting ready to test the open market as an unrestricted free agent in a couple of weeks, so his last season could very well come in a different NHL uniform. "This organization means everything to me," he said. "I don't feel pushed out. I feel appreciated in all ways. ... But, like any competitor, you want to play. That's why I want to see if there's a place that I can play a lot more. If not, it's going to be a team that is going to have a really good chance to win if I'm not going to play as much." Brodeur added that he wants the Devils to sign a long-term deal with Cory Schneider because he is "the goalie of the future in New Jersey."

"I don't know where that (the talk of him going to Sweden) came from."

GM doesn't see Devils losing Adam Larsson | 06/12/2014 10:53 AM
News
Devils GM Lou Lamoriello doesn't think Adam Larsson will bolt to play in Sweden next season.
The Star-Ledger

Impact
"I don't have any knowledge of that," Lamoriello said amid rumors on Wednesday suggesting it was possible. He also denied that there was any concern over losing Larsson, who New Jersey took with the fourth overall pick in 2011. He's a restricted free agent next month and hasn't been happy with his playing time. Larsson appeared in just 26 NHL games in 2013-14.
Schneider isn't making playing time demands | 06/11/2014 11:02 AM
News
Cory Schneider clarified that he's not making any demands with regards to playing time as a condition for re-signing with New Jersey.
The Bergen Record

Impact
Schneider's agent has already begun to talk to the Devils. "People said I was demanding this or that," Schneider said. "It has nothing to do with that. There have been no demands. I think just personally for me I would like the opportunity to be a starting goalie - however many games that may be, however you define a starting goalie. I would just like that opportunity. I think I've at least earned a look and if they agree then we'll go from there." Schneider only ended up playing in 45 games in 2013-14 because of the presence of Martin Brodeur.
Kovalchuk isn't likely to return next season | 06/10/2014 11:10 AM
News
Don't read too much into the rumors that Ilya Kovalchuk might return to the New Jersey Devils for the 2014-15 campaign.
New Jersey Online

Impact
Even if Kovalchuk wanted to as the rumors suggest, that doesn't mean that he can. Because he got out of his NHL contract by "retiring," he would only be allowed to return before 2017-18 if he gained the unanimous support of all 30 NHL clubs. It seems unlikely that teams like the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers would just stand aside and let the Devils get back Kovalchuk though.
Cory Schneider wants to play 60 games | 06/07/2014 2:20 PM
News
Cory Schneider would like to play 60 games next year.
The Star-Ledger

Impact
Martin Brodeur expects to test the open market next month and the Devils have one year remaining on Schneider's contract. If Brodeur does leave then it would free Schneider up to see plenty of action and he believes that will happen. "I have no reason to think otherwise," Schneider said. "We're probably about a month short of figuring out what is going to happen going forward. In five or six weeks I'll have more to say or dissect, but as of today and what I've heard from the team, hopefully I can sort of begin my career as a starter and earn it see what I can do."
Martin Brodeur will test open market July 1st | 06/06/2014 8:01 PM

Martin Brodeur says he is going to test the free agent market on July 1st and will most likely part ways with the New Jersey Devils, the team that drafted him 20th overall in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft.
ESPN

Impact
24 years, four Vezina Trophies and three Stanley Cups after joining the Devils organization, the NHL's all-time winningest goaltender has decided he's ready to leave New Jersey. Brodeur did not completely rule out a return to the Devils, but says he does not want to "mess up the cards" for the Devils, who acquired Cory Schneider as their number one goaltender last year. "I've come to the conclusion that I'm definitely going to be available July 1,'' Brodeur told ESPN.com on Friday. "I want to play one more season and I want to see what's out there." Brodeur says he wants to join a contending team if he takes a backup role, but is open to joining any team if a starting job is available.
Schneider's extension might hinge on role | 06/06/2014 6:51 PM
News
If the New Jersey Devils plan to sign Cory Schneider to a long-term contract, then he would like assurances that they view him as their top goalie going forward.
New Jersey Online

Impact
Schneider has one season left on his contract before he's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent. Schneider specified that this isn't about whether or not they sign Martin Brodeur for another season as he's more interested in the Devils' long-term goaltending situation.

News
Cory Schneider thinks Rangers coach Alain Vigneault deserves some credit for guiding New York to the Stanley Cup Final.
The Bergen Record

Impact
Schneider and Vigneault were both members of the Vancouver Canucks, Vancouver traded the former and fired the latter. "As a Devil it's not great to see the Rangers playing in the Final, but it's good to see Alain back in the Final. I think he's a great coach," said Schneider. "We went to a Cup Final and we won two President's Trophies and a bunch of division titles with him, so he was clearly a great coach. I'm not surprised at all that they're there. It was unfortunate the way it ended in Vancouver for him. I don't think it was a knock on him as a coach. I just think it was a change with the ownership." The Rangers are down 1-0 in their series against Los Angeles, but they took the opener to overtime.

Ben Johnson will go on trial for an alleged sexual assault on August 15.

He was accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old female in March of 2013 at a night club, according to CTV Windsor. Johnson was reportedly involved in another alleged sexual assault involving a 20-year-old, but that hasn't "gone before the court." "I just want to focus on hockey," Johnson said when asked about the alleged incidents. "I'm just happy to be signed and move on. I'm a New Jersey Devil now and I'm happy to be there."
Bettman describes why Devils got pick back | 06/05/2014 10:44 AM
News
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman decided to give the Devils a 2014 first-round draft pick mostly because of new owners Josh Harris and David Blitzer.
The Star-Ledger

Impact
"If it weren't for the fact that there were new owners, I wouldn't have done it," said Bettman, who emphasized that the draft selection was not brought up during the negotiations to buy the club. "The fact that there were changed circumstances and new owners made me comfortable doing it." The circumstances he was eluding to was the departure of Ilya Kovalchuk to play in the KHL after the Devils were punished for giving him a 17-year, $102 million deal in 2010. New Jersey has the 30th overall pick in this June's draft and they cannot trade it.
Larsson faces uphill battle to make Devils | 06/04/2014 9:45 AM
News
With Marek Zidlicky re-signed, Adam Larsson's task of making the Devils' opening game roster has been made that much more difficult.
The Bergen Record

Impact
The Devils now have five defensemen signed to one-way contracts and a sixth that will almost certainly make the team in Jon Merrill. That doesn't leave much room for Larsson, who spent a good chunk of the 2013-14 campaign in the minors. Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said that the team still might make other moves in that regard though, so it's possible that New Jersey plans to move or even buy out a defenseman. Meanwhile, Larsson is scheduled to become a restricted free agent this summer.
Zidlicky's deal comes with performance bonus | 06/03/2014 6:03 PM
News
Upon further clarification, Marek Zidlicky can earn up to $4 million in 2014-15.
Pierre LeBrun on Twitter

Impact
Zidlicky will actually receive a base salary of $3 million based on his recently signed deal with New Jersey. However, he can earn an additional $1 million by playing in at least 25 games. Barring a major injury, Zidlicky should have no trouble fulfilling the obligations of that bonus.
Devils ink Marek Zidlicky to one-year deal | 06/03/2014 3:11 PM
News
Marek Zidlicky has agreed to a one-year, $4 million contract with the New Jersey Devils.
Elliotte Friedman on Twitter

Impact
That's pretty good value for New Jersey, considering he had 12 goals and 42 points in 81 games in 2013-14. He'll turn 38 in February, so obviously his age is a factor, but he should still be one of the more productive offensive defensemen next season.

News
New Jersey bench boss Pete DeBoer spoke very highly of Jaromir Jagr for his play during the 20131-14 season.
The Star-Ledger

Impact
"On the hockey rink he's as good as I've ever seen," DeBoer said. "He's maybe the best puck possession player of all time. You talk about (Wayne) Gretzky and what he was able to do with his playmaking ability and (Mario) Lemieux with his package of size and speed and skill. For me this is the best puck possession player of all time." Jagr led the Devils in scoring during the regular season with 67 points in 82 games. He signed a one-year contract last month to remain in New Jersey.
DeBoer would be happy to have Brodeur back | 05/30/2014 7:21 AM

Devils coach Pete DeBoer would love to have Martin Brodeur back on the team next year.
The Bergen Record

Impact
"I haven't got any updates on that. I can tell you, if he wants to come back I would welcome him with open arms," said DeBoer. "You can never have enough great goaltending." Having Brodeur return might not be the best scenario because it could cause a potential conflict with Cory Schneider, who is expecting being New Jersey's starter in 2014-15, but DeBoer thought "they both handled it professionally" despite some rough patches. Brodeur is eligible to be an unrestricted free agent in July, but he is open to re-signing with the Devils.

Devils` Mark Fayne ahead of schedule in rehab | 05/17/2014 10:57 AM
News
Defenseman Mark Fayne is "ahead of schedule" in his rehab following April 22 surgery to repair the core muscle in his left groin, but there have been no meaningful talks with the Devils regarding a new contract.
Newark Star-Ledger

Impact
Fayne, who turned 27 Thursday, can become an unrestricted free agent July 1. He earned $1.4 million in 2013-14. "We have not heard from the Devils yet, but I hope at some point we do," agent Peter Fish said. "Mark is obviously a very valuable defenseman, and he would be to a lot of teams. Mark's preference is to be a Devil and not go anywhere." In 72 games this season, Fayne had 11 points (four goals, seven assists) and was minus-5. He was primarily Andy Greene's partner as the Devils' top defense pairing. "(Fayne`s) rehab is actually ahead of schedule. He's getting good care. That is not an issue at all," Fish said. "It's quite a common injury for hockey players. These doctors are good."

Jaromir Jagr didn't have a desire to test the unrestricted free agent market.
New Jersey Online

Impact
"Two things could happen with free agency: Maybe there would be more teams (interested) and I would get more money," Jagr said. "But if I'm happy somewhere, there's no reason to change." Jagr had a great season with the Devils and enjoyed his time there despite the fact that they missed the playoffs. On top of that, he was probably looking forward to staying in one place after jumping from team to team for a few years.

Jaromir Jagr's one-year deal for the 2014-15 campaign will come with a $3.5 million base salary.
Rich Chere on Twitter

Impact
Jagr could earn up to $5.5 million if he activates his performance bonuses by playing in enough games. He was able to play in all 82 contests in 2013-14, but there's a chance that the Devils might choose to rest him more often as he slowly approaches his mid-40s.

Jaromir Jagr has agreed to terms with the New Jersey Devils.

He currently ranks 20th on the all-time list for games played with 1,473, but he could climb as high as 11th if he stays healthy next season. Jagr is also just three goals shy of Mike Gartner and sixth place in the NHL's all-time goals scored list. Fifth-place Phil Esposito is 12 goals ahead of Jagr. In terms of points, Jagr just needs 16 more to match the fifth-place Marcel Dionne.

Brodeur is slated to become an unrestricted free agent and if he chooses to return to New Jersey, he will likely back up Cory Schneider once again.
