New Jersey Devils defenseman Mark Fayne had wrist surgery on Friday and may miss the start of the 2012-13 season, NHL.com reported. Fayne had the scapholunate ligament of his left wrist repaired, and that typically sidelines a player for 3-4 months. Fayne, 25, is one of three players the Devils tendered qualifying offers to on Monday. He had four goals and 13 assists while playing all 82 regular-season games this past season. He had three assists in the postseason.

The NHL Entry Draft is in the books, and in my opinion the New Jersey Devils did quite well. Today I'll provide a few notes on their draft picks, as well as an update on Zach Parise and more. I will do a more in-depth draft review for the Devils hopefully some time this week.
- As I said yesterday, I'm starting to like the Stefan Matteau selection more and more. He doesn...
With the 2012 NHL Entry Draft over and done with and free agency right around the corner, Lou Lamoriello and the New Jersey Devils management staff have undoubtedly turned their attention to re-signing pending unrestricted free agents and restricted free agents. Here are some notes on that, as well as some other Devils related topics.
- I'll start off with the big fish. Zach...
Brendan Shanahan is a Hall of Fame player. What he was able to accomplish on the ice ranks with the all-time greats of the game.
But hockey is rooted in strong traditions and has a code of conduct that one is expected to uphold. Hockey players might be brutish on the ice, but the off-the-ice code calls for them to be gentlemen first and foremost.
Combining talent, personality and...
The Devils season came to an unfortunate ending, but it was certainly a storied run to the Stanley Cup Finals.
For about 48 hours, every New Jersey Devils fan in the world believed history was about to be rewritten. The Devils seemed to have the Kings right where they wanted them, back on their heels, watching their 3-0 series lead slip away to host a Game 6 up 3-2 at the Staples...
The New Jersey Devils could be on the verge of filing for bankruptcy.
The NHL could take over the franchise.
An NHL source said, "If the NHL has to take over the Devils, Kovalchuk will be moved".
Ilya is owed 11 million dollars this year and upwards of 11 million dollars the following FOUR years. This is something the Devils simply cannot afford, even with Brodeur...
This was Shanahan's first appearance on the Hall ballot, but he looked like a near-lock to earn admission. Continue reading →
The Hockey Hall of Fame will announce its 2012 induction class tomorrow at 3 PM EDT (the announcement will be televised on TSN and the NHL Network U.S.), and it’s more or less guaranteed that former Red Wings forward Brendan Shanahan will receive a phone call from the HHOF’s selection committee sometime on Tuesday morning. As such, DetroitRedWings.com’s Bill Roose spoke to...
I read the release from the Hockey Hall of Fame and couldn’t believe it. Long-time Red Wing Brendan Shanahan, his three Stanley Cups and 600-plus goals won’t be heading to Toronto this year, and I just can’t believe it. It’s insane.That’s it as I’m still sick, but I just can’t believe it. Pavel Bure and Adam Oates are fine players, as is Mats Sundin, but did they win...

I’ve certainly got some explaining to do. My New Jersey Devils made a remarkable run to the Stanley Cup Finals and since the inception of their 2012 postseason campaign, I can probably count the number of pieces I’ve posted on the fingers of one hand. Let me say there is a reason for my inconsistencies and absence from this site since April. Some...
By Malik Report standards, five entries in a day is downright delinquent, this sniffly blogger had laid down for an afternoon nap simply because I assumed Brendan Shanahan would obviously be named one of the Hockey Hall of Fame’s 2012 inductees, only to wake and find out that Adam Oates, Joe Sakic, Pavel Bure and Mats Sundin were named to the Hall, but not Shanahan on Tuesday afternoon...
And Brendan Shanahan has been unbelievably, unfathomably left out. Bure and Sundin, yes. Shanny…no. It’s so pathetic that it’s hard to even muster any anger over this one.
