New Jersey Devils forward, David Clarkson, was the star of the evening in Newark once again last night, this time in front of 200 smiling, grateful faces from the Hockey In Newark program, where Clarkson and the NHLPA’s Goals and Dreams program donated 50 sets of brand new equipment.
The Goals & Dreams program allowed for Clarkson to choose an organization in which he would donate equipment and after talking to co-founder of Hockey In Newark, Keith Veltre, Clarkson said it was a “no brainer” to choose the organization right in the heart of the city the Devils now call home.
Prior to the re-location of the Devils to Newark, hockey becoming popular in the city of Newark was just an idea in the minds of two East Side teachers who wanted to share their passion for the sport of, with a hope that it would catch on.
Handed a team of five players and equipment that would even make the kids from The Mighty Ducks blush, Dennis Rup...

Well, that didn't take long.
New Jersey Devils President and General Manager, Lou Lamoriello, announced today that recently acquired forward Andrei Loktionov has been called up to the big club.
The Devils have placed veteran forward Dainius Zubrus, who has missed the last few games with an upper-body injury, on injured reserve to make room for Loktionov.
Travis Zajac scored 40 seconds into the game and there was a collective groan in Flyer land. Same old same old, but that feeling was short lived as Philadelphia stormed back scoring three times in the first period to carry […]
The New Jersey Devils' five-game winning streak came to an abrupt end on Tuesday evening. The Devils were defeated by a fiesty Carolina Hurricanes team in a game that could have easily gone the Devils' way. After falling behind 2-1 going into the third, the Devils tied the game at two, but allowed two more unanswered goals before time ran out.
While the game did not...

On February 15, 2000 Martin Brodeur scored his second career goal and the first ever game-winner by a goaltender in the National Hockey League.
Philadelphia Flyers forward, Daymond Langkow, misplayed the puck which would result in a Devils goal during a delayed penalty call. Brodeur was the last Devil on...
The more things change, the more things stay the same.
New Jersey Devils President and General Manager, Lou Lamoriello, announced via conference call that the Devils have acquired veteran forward and former Devil Alexei Ponikarovsky from the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for a 7th round pick in the 2013 draft and a 4th round pick in the 2014 draft.
This trade makes sense on a few...
Wednesday night New Jersey Devils President and General Manager, Lou Lamoriello, announced that the team had acquired veteran forward and former Devil Alexei Ponikarovksy from the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for a 4th round pick in 2014 and a 7th round pick in 2013.
My thoughts on the trade:
First and foremost, this move was made in large part due Dainius Zubrus' injury uncertainty...
The Hurricanes managed to pull out a 4-2 win over the New Jersey Devils last night and they did it on the back of one of their weakest offensive performances of the young season. The Devils held Carolina to only nine scoring chances at even strength and 12 overall, which are season lows for the Hurricanes this season. New Jersey is also only the third team this season to outchance...
