2014 NHL Draft

 

During the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, the New Jersey Devils had six selections available to them.

Since the Stanley Cup Final run in 2012, the New Jersey Devils have faced a lot of changes, on the ice and off. Gone are star players Zach Parise and Ilya Kovalchuk, grinder David Clarkson, and hall of fame goalie Martin Brodeur pending this year’s off season to either free agency or retirement.

The shootout. The mere mention of the word sends many Devils fans and even players running for the hills. Currently, the Devils are 0-11 in the shootout for the season and the only NHL team to not have a shootout win. Jacob Josefson, Jaromir Jagr, and Reid Boucher are the only New Jersey players to have scored in the skills competition this season, making the team mark 3-39 attempts on the season.
