Impact
Schneider has started all 18 games for New Jersey this season, and we at The Sports Network are started to worry about fatigue.

News
Devils center Travis Zajac was injured in Tuesday's practice (lower body) and is questionable for Thursday's game against Philadelphia.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Zajac is still a quality fantasy play as long as he can keep his top line spot, but his season debut may now be delayed a game. That doesn't change his overall fantasy value off an 18 goal, 30 assist season of a year ago.

Devils center Adam Henrique's biggest obstacle to taking his fantasy game to another level is fellow centerman Travis Zajac.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Henrique proved last year that he can score 20 goals with Michael Ryder and Ryane Clowe as linemates, but Henrique would be far more productive if he received playing time with Jaromir Jagr and Mike Cammalleri. Henrique is a handcuff that fantasy owners hope will see more playing time on the top line.

Devils defenseman Eric Gelinas has a chance to be New Jersey's best fantasy defenseman in 2014-2015.

Impact
Gelinas showed tremendous potential for a 21-year-old last year. He scored just one fewer point and took just four fewer shots than Marek Zidlicky despite playing in 20 fewer games. Gelinas is New Jersey's future at the blue line and look for him to take over the point on the power play this year.

Devils winger Michael Ryder looks poised for a bounceback season in 2014-2015.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Ryder scored 35 goals, a career high, three years ago in Dallas, but scored just 16 in an injury-plagued season in 2012-2013 and then only 18 goals last year in his first season with New Jersey. Ryder wants to make amends and has been playing like he means it this preseason.
Devils winger Patrik Elias is the last player left from the Devils 2003 Stanley Cup Champion team. | 09/29/2014 6:33 PM
News
Devils winger Patrik Elias is the last player left from the Devils 2003 Stanley Cup Champion team.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
With the departure of Martin Brodeur, Elias is the last man left to have won the Cup with the Devils. Jagr, or course, won it as a youngster with the Penguins. If Elias can play a full season for the first time since 2011-2012, he could see an increase in production, but it seems unlikely he will suit up for 82 games at the age of 38.

News
Devils right wing Jaromir Jagr continues to find the fountain of youth in his 21st season in the NHL.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Jagr told The Bergen Record that he isn't even close to thinking about retirement and that he wants to play until he is at least 50. He also said he wants to continue to get better and not play just to play. It's hard to argue with him as he led the Devils with 67 points and scored 24 goals last season at the age of 42. He comes into the season in great shape once again.

News
Devils center Travis Zajac will have to be more productive this season if he expects to keep his top-line center position.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
The Devils are hoping the addition of Michael Cammalleri on the wing along with Jaromir Jagr will increase Zajac's production. It better because Zajac was somewhat inefficient with 48 points while averaging 20 minutes a game. Even though other players might do more with the same opportunity, Zajac is still a quality fantasy play as long as he can keep his top line spot.
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 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 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.

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

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.

"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

Maxime Clermont has signed a one-year deal with New Jersey.
The Bergen Record

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 has signed Keith Kinkaid to a one-year, two-way contract.

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.

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 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.

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's agent Peter Fish says that the chances of the defenseman returning to the Devils are becoming less likely.

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

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.

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.
