Found September 17, 2013 on Running With The Devils:
The Devils played their first preseason game of the 2013/2014 season and there were certainly some positives to take away from that game.  Cory Schneider looked great in goal. His positioning seemed very good for September. I know that teams are going to get better chances against him as they learn their timing but Scheider looked a lot better than I thought he would since it's only the beginning of training camp. I'm still excited with what he and Brodeur can bring as the #1 & #2 this season.    Eric Gelinas has one heavy shot and it was mentioned that his goal for this season was to make the NHL (kind of a "yeah like duh" comment because I think every AHL player's goal in September is to make the NHL) but there might be a chance for Gelinas to make it. I still think that if any more of the Devils D-men go, it will be Fayne which would open the door for Gelinas. However, I can defend Fayne just a bit on his hooking call that prevented a sh...

Devils goalie Cory Schneider is a pain to shop with

Cory Schneider is looking to turn an old stereotype on its head. Pure Hockey, a store which specializes in hockey gear and equipment on the East Coast, called on the New Jersey Devils goaltender to show what it's like to join him on a shopping trip for new hockey equipment.  Let's just say you'll need some patience.  Yes Cory, those pants do make you look fat...

Devils' Cory Schneider wins fans over by blanking Rangers in debut

Cory Schneider’s debut in goal for the Devils couldn’t have gone much better. In a 2-1 preseason victory over the Rangers at Prudential Center Schneider stopped all 22 shots he faced in the first two periods. “It’s always nice to get a little action make some saves and winning never gets old” Schneider said. “It is preseason but that was probably one of the most spirited...

Tedenby, Gelinas score in Devils' win over Rangers

Mattias Tedenby scored in the first period, and Eric Gelinas added a goal in the third to lead the New Jersey Devils to a 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers on Monday night in the preseason opener for both teams. Tedenby, fighting for a spot on the roster, scored 10:20 into the game off a fine pass from Rostislav Olesz. Gelinas fired in a hard slap shot 31 seconds into the third...

Martin Brodeur named Devils' opening-night starter in net

There's still a long ways to go in camp but the New Jersey Devils have already named their starting goalie for opening night and coach Peter DeBoer is sticking to his word; it will be Martin Brodeur. Before camp began DeBoer noted how he has two No. 1 (well a 1 and 1A) goalies in Brodeur and newcomer Cory Schneider but for now the job is still Brodeur's. This keeps with...

Devils’ Owner Doesn’t Expect Big Return On Investment

from Eben Novy-Williams & Cristina Alesci of Bloomberg, Apollo Global Management LLC (APO) co-founder Josh Harris said Newark’s Prudential Center was a more important financial piece in his purchase of the New Jersey Devils than the hockey team itself. Harris and David Blitzer, a New Jersey native and senior managing director of Blackstone Group LP, purchased the...

Former Red Wing Damien Brunner’s headed to New Jersey

I hate to say it, but the whole dang hockey world called it. When the New Jersey Devils let Ilya Kovalchuk "retire" to avoid a massive NHL-KHL showdown and get that huge contract off the Devils' books, it was assumed that Damien Brunner would be joining the Devils. And, wouldn't you know it, via RedWingsFeed... Damien Brunner invited to #NJDevils camp...

Johan Hedberg released from PTO; Four others sent to Hartford

Per Andrew Gross, the Rangers have released goaltender Johan Hedberg from his professional tryout. Hebderg was brought in while Martin Biron was out for personal reasons, but never got a chance to play in a preseason game. Both Biron and rookie Cam Talbot were great in their preseason game(s), earning more time. Unfortunately for Hedberg, he was the odd-man out. Gross also notes...

Damien Brunner Signed To Pro Tryout With New Jersey by   Steven Ellis

Damien Brunner has accepted a tryout offer from the New Jersey Devils. Last year as a rookie in the NHL, Brunner had 12 goals and 26 points in 44 games with Detroit. Brunner was reportedly close to signing with the Devils earlier this summer, but New Jersey went out and signed Jaromir Jagr instead. In 2011–12, Brunner had 60 points in [...]
