  • Devils' Adam Beckman: Receives two-way contract

    Beckman signed a one-year, two-way contract with New Jersey on Monday.

    Beckman notched 19 goals and 33 points in 51 regular-season outings for AHL Iowa in 2023-24. He also had two assists, 10 shots on goal and 13 hits in 11 NHL appearances with Minnesota this past campaign. The Wild traded Beckman to the Devils on June 21 in exchange for Graeme Clarke. The 23-year-old Beckman will likely start 2024-25 in the minors.

  • Devils' Dougie Hamilton: Ready for 2024-25

    Hamilton has fully recovered from his pectoral injury, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports Wednesday.

    Hamilton didn't play past Nov. 28 because of the injury. He underwent surgery for a torn pectoral muscle Dec. 1 and was placed on long-term injured reserve Jan. 25. Having Hamilton healthy for the 2024-25 campaign will give the Devils a big boost. He excelled in 2022-23 with 22 goals and 74 points in 82 regular-season contests and recorded at least 30 points in nine consecutive campaigns before being limited to 20 contests in 2024-25. If not for the injury, he would have almost certainly extended the streak -- he already had five goals and 16 points last season before getting hurt.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Pens one-year contract

    Tatar signed a one-year, $1.8 million contract with New Jersey on Tuesday.

    Tatar accounted for nine goals, 24 points and 72 shots on net in 70 regular-season contests between Seattle and Colorado in 2023-24. He played for the Devils for two campaigns before signing with the Avalanche, which includes a 20-goal and 48-point showing over 82 regular-season outings in 2022-23. However, he is unlikely to reach those marks in 2024-25 as a depth forward for New Jersey.

  • Devils' Colton White: Lands two-way deal

    White signed a two-year, two-way deal with the Devils on Monday.

    White was in Anaheim's organization for the last two years and spent all of the 2023-24 campaign with AHL San Diego. He has 10 assists in 84 career NHL games. He began his career with the Devils after they drafted him in the fourth round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, though he returns to New Jersey in what's likely to be a minor-league depth role.

  • Devils' Mike Hardman: Lands two-year contract

    Hardman signed a two-year, two-way contract with New Jersey on Monday.

    Hardman generated 22 goals and 37 points in 63 regular-season outings for AHL Rockford in 2023-24. The 25-year-old forward has one goal and four helpers in 37 career NHL appearances. Hardman will probably spend most of the 2024-25 campaign in the minors.

  • Devils' Stefan Noesen: Signs three-year pact

    Noesen signed a three-year, $8.25 million contract with New Jersey on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Noesen rejoins New Jersey after having last played for the club during the 2018-19 campaign, in which he recorded just eight points in 41 regular-season contests. The 31-year-old forward returns fresh off back-to-back 35-plus-point campaigns for the Hurricanes. Perhaps most significant to his recent productivity, Noesen was seeing power-play time with Carolina but could face an uphill battle to get opportunities with the man advantage in New Jersey.

  • Devils' Brenden Dillon: Inks three-year contract

    Dillon (hand) signed a three-year, $12 million contract with New Jersey on Monday, according to Sportsnet's Luke Gazdic.

    Dillon compiled eight goals, 20 points, 79 shots on net, 111 blocked shots and 241 hits in 77 regular-season contests with Winnipeg in 2023-24. He will provide the Devils with some depth on the blue line and could be a veteran partner for Simon Nemec. The 33-year-old Dillon missed the final two games of Winnipeg's first-round series against Colorado after suffering a cut to his hand by a skate. Still, he should be ready for training camp in the fall.

  • Devils' Brett Pesce: Signs six-year contract

    Pesce (lower leg) inked a six-year, $33 million contract with New Jersey on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Pesce missed the Hurricanes' final nine postseason contests after suffering a fractured fibula in Game 2 of their first-round series with the Islanders. This past season was a low point offensively for the 29-year-old defenseman, as he posted a career-low 13 points in 70 regular-season contests, a far cry from the 30 he put up the year before. Clearly, the Devils are hoping to rediscover the 2022-23 version of Pesce, though he may be hard-pressed to secure power-play minutes with his new club, assuming Dougie Hamilton (pectoral) is healthy to start the new campaign.

  • Devils' Johnny Kovacevic: Dealt to New Jersey

    Montreal traded Kovacevic to the Devils in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick Sunday.

    Kovacevic spent the last two seasons in Montreal, totaling nine goals and 28 points in 139 contests. The 26-year-old averaged 16:31 of ice time with 83 blocked shots and 74 hits during the 2023-24 season. He should compete for a bottom-four role with the Devils.

  • Devils' Paul Cotter: Acquired in deal

    New Jersey obtained Cotter and a 2025 third-round pick from Vegas on Saturday in exchange for Alexander Holtz and Akira Schmid.

    Cotter collected seven goals, 25 points, 100 shots on net and 233 hits in 76 games during the 2023-24 campaign. He could occupy a bottom-six role with the Devils next season while seeing some power-play time.

  • Devils' Herman Traff: Round 3 pick of New Jersey

    Traff was the 91st overall pick by the Devils in the 2024 NHL Entry Draft on Saturday.

    Traff saw some time with HV71 in the SHL last season as an 18-year-old. He didn't record a point in 10 games with the club but was excellent (13 goals, 21 points) in 26 games with their junior team. Traff is a massive (6-foot-3, 215 pounds) kid with a big shot. The Devils will likely let him marinate in his native Sweden for the next few seasons.

  • Devils' Kasper Pikkarainen: Agitator drafted by New Jersey

    Pikkarainen was the 85th overall pick by the Devils in the 2024 NHL Entry Draft on Saturday.

    Pikkarainen, who projects as your prototypical bottom-six agitator, is always involved in the play from a physical standpoint. He's always looking to lay the body on someone, and while his offensive game is quite basic, at 6-foot-2 and nearly 200 pounds, Pikkarainen is a big, strong kid. The Devils are likely hoping he can contribute 10-12 goals per season while making life miserable for his opponents.

  • Devils' Mikhail Yegorov: BU commit links up with Jersey

    Yegorov was the 49th overall pick by the Devils in the 2024 NHL Entry Draft on Saturday.

    You wouldn't know it by his numbers this past season, but plenty of people feel the 6-foot-4, 190-pound Yegorov has the most long-term upside among goaltenders in this year's class. NHL Central Scouting ranked him as the No. 1 North American Goaltender. Coming over from his native Russia to play for, hands down, the worst team in the USHL, Yegorov finished the year with an 8-25-3 record, 3.86 GAA and .892 save percentage. Expect Yegorov to be better in the USHL next season before heading to Boston University in the fall of 2025.

  • Devils' Anton Silayev: Massive defender devilishly fast

    Silayev was the 10th overall pick by the Devils in the 2024 NHL Entry Draft on Friday.

    Silayev is a 6-foot-7 monster before he adds his blades, and the guy skates really well and closes gaps fast. He also dishes the puck well, too. Silayev spent most of this past season as a 17-year-old regular in the KHL. Sure, there were moments when his decision making wasn't perfect and his offense plateaued as the season wore on. But we'll repeat -- he was 17 years old, playing against men twice his age in a pro league. Silayev has offensive skills, but they don't come near the elite puckmovers in this draft. He perhaps doesn't think the game like them, either. Still, Silayev is a defensive beast with top pairing potential a bit like Colton Parayko. He'll become a multi-category guy when he steps on the ice in 2026. He's exactly what the Devils need in their system.

  • Devils' Nick DeSimone: Inks one-year deal

    DeSimone signed a one-year, one-way contract worth $775,000 with New Jersey on Monday.

    DeSimone registered two goals, seven points, 28 shots on net, 42 blocked shots and 29 hits in 34 games between the Devils and Flames in 2023-24. He will compete for a depth spot on New Jersey's blue line during training camp in the fall.

  • Devils' Adam Beckman: Dealt to New Jersey

    Beckman was traded to the Devils from Minnesota in exchange for Graeme Clarke on Friday.

    Beckman played 11 regular-season games at the NHL level in 2023-24, picking up a pair of assists over that stretch. He also scored 19 goals and had 33 points in 51 AHL regular-season games with Iowa. Look for Beckman to challenge for a bottom-six role with the Devils during training camp.

  • Devils' Jacob Markstrom: Acquired by Devils

    Markstrom was acquired by the Devils from the Flames on Wednesday in exchange for Kevin Bahl and a 2025 first-round pick, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

    Markstrom posted a 23-23-2 record, 2.78 GAA and .905 save percentage in 48 games with the Flames in 2023-24. He has two seasons remaining on his six-year, $36 million contract and has a no-movement clause, which means he had to approve this trade to New Jersey. Calgary has agreed to retain 31.25 percent of his remaining contract, which leaves New Jersey with a cap hit of $4.125 million for each of the next two years. The Devils missed out on the playoffs in large part due to poor goaltending, and the addition of Markstrom should address that. The 34-year-old is a safe bet to begin the 2024-25 campaign as the Devils' No. 1 netminder.
