The 21st overall pick of the 2000 draft, Volchenkov collected eight assists and 36 penalty minutes in 57 games last season.

Devils Alley: Is Zach Parise The Right Choice For New Jersey Devils Captain?

Zach Parise was named team captain of the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday, making him the ninth captain in the team's history. Parise, 27, is coming off a fairly serious knee injury that cost him most of the 2010-2011 season, and he is in the midst of contract negotiations that cannot be resolved until January 1st, the first day that the league will allow the Devils to re-sign...

Todd Cordell: New Jersey Devils News & Notes: 10/09/11

Though I didn't see the game, I have gathered these thoughts based off game stats, and what writers and fans were tweeting, and texting me. Game notes - I was told Martin Brodeur was the best Devil on the ice, and it wasn't even close. That's a great thing to hear, as most - including myself - were wondering if he would still be able to play at a high level. Apparently...

Devils Alley: Has The Ilya Kovalchuk Deal Officially Become A Mistake?

In the New Jersey Devils' 3-0 season opening loss to the Philadelphia Flyers, nobody's poor play stood out more then Ilya Kovalchuk. Despite being on the ice for a team high 23 minutes and 30 seconds, Kovalchuk failed to record a point on three shots and managed a -3 rating. His line was at fault for all of the Flyers scoring in the opener, and the power play unit he leads...

Flyers-Devils Preview

The New Jersey Devils went winless in their first seven home games last season, part of an awful start that contributed to missing the playoffs for the first time since 1995-96. The Devils' attempt to prove last season is in the rear-view mirror begins Saturday night against the Philadelphia Flyers, who look to play spoiler in a second straight home opener. New Jersey (38-39...

Hurricanes-Devils Preview

The New Jersey Devils aren't too concerned after one game, but this is not how they wanted 2011-12 to begin. The Carolina Hurricanes are also in search of their first win, but at least they were pleased with their most recent effort.

Coach must get Devs off to good start

Either the Pete DeBoer Era begins tonight for the Devils, or the calls will multiply for the end of the Lou Lamoriello Era. Last year's 9-22-2 start is always followed by "under John MacLean." Unless and until the Devils bury last season's early fiasco, it will be the...
