NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Getting to the playoffs used to be a given for the New Jersey Devils.
The three-time Stanley Cup champions made the postseason for 13 straight years between 1996-97 and 2009-10. The run ended in 2011 and New Jersey has missed the playoffs three of the last four seasons. The only year they made it, they got to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2012.
The goal, obviously...

The Devils are once again going to rely heavily on Jaromir Jagr, and they’re just fine with that.
There was little time spent last spring between them not making the playoffs for the second straight year and general manager Lou Lamoriello re-signing the future Hall of Famer. At 42 years old, Jagr inked his second one-year deal with the Devils, this one with a base salary of $3...
The 2014-15 NHL season is rapidly approaching. The New Jersey Devils have already played four pre-season games, and opening night is less than two weeks away. To help get people even more amped up for the regular season, here is part two of my breakdown of the Devils 2014-15 schedule.
January: 11 games (7 home, 4 road)
The 2015 calendar year is a lot more favorable for the Devils...

New Jersey Devils’ General Manager Lou Lamoriello stated this past week that it is not the amount of goals scored that he places value on, but rather just that the Devils score more than their opponents, a valid belief from the longest tenured GM in the National Hockey League. However, the Devils are beginning the 2014-2015 season trying to crack a...

Future Hall-of-Fame goaltender Martin Brodeur’s playing days are over with the New Jersey Devils. Cory Schneider finally has the opportunity to be the number one goalie with an NHL club. Schneider is expected to play anywhere between 60-70 games this season.
The departure of Brodeur has left a vacancy in the backup goaltending position. The Devils...
The Devils released training camp tryout Mike Komisarek Sunday and assigned four players to their Albany (AHL) minor league team.
Goalie Scott Wedgewood; defensemen Renat Mamashev and Corbin McPherson; and forward Joe Whitney were sent to Albany.
Komisarek, a 32-year-old defenseman with 551 games of NHL experience, did not play well in his two preseason games for the Devils.
There’s good news on the injury front for the New Jersey Devils as defenseman Jon Merrill returned to practicing with his teammates Sunday.
Merrill, who has been out since Sept. 19 after colliding with teammate Ruslan Fedotenko, had been skating on his own according to GM Lou Lamoriello.
“He’s cleared. We’ve been over-protective,” Lamoriello told the Star-Ledger.
Martin Brodeur had been the face of the New Jersey Devils for two decades.
The likely Hall of Fame goaltender led the Devils to three Stanley Cup titles, broke several team and NHL records, and is considered one of the greatest players ever at his position.
Brodeur’s contract expired after the 2013-14 season, and with Cory Schneider ready to become a No. 1 goaltender full time...
Zach Parise used to be a supporter of the dump-and-chase strategy. That very strategy propelled Parise and the Devils to some strong seasons and a deep playoff run, but the forward has since changed his mind. In fact, he’s backing his shift away from the dump-and-chase thanks to advanced statistics. Here’s what Parise told the Star Tribune:
“I read a study this summer that...
Last season the New Jersey Devils finished just shy of a playoff spot. Outside of their terrible shootout record (0-13) the Devils were hampered by an aging goaltender who still refuses to admit that he is too old to continue playing in the NHL. To top it all off, they were 27th overall in goals scored.
This season proposes to be different for the Devils. They’ve finally committed...
The New Jersey Devils scored both in the opening minute and the closing minute of Monday’s preseason game against the New York Rangers.
Reid Boucher got the Devils on the board just 59 seconds into the game and Michael Ryder added a tally of his own later in the first period to double their lead, but New Jersey saw its advantage slip away in the final 20 minutes of play.
Three months of hockey-less living has been rough, but the Rangers return to the ice tonight against the New Jersey Devils. There are a lot of roster spots open for the taking, and a lot of the guys competing for those spots are in action tonight. Tonight marks the debuts of the highly anticipated Kevin […]

Devils right wing Jaromir Jagr is a year older, but, as far as his future is concerned, his approach to this season is the same as it was heading into last season. The 42-year-old future Hall of Famer has no plans for this to be his final season. “I don’t think that way,” Jagr said today after taking his training camp physical. “I love the game. What I want to tell you...
