Devils defeat Oilers, 2-1 in overtime

Jon Merrill’s slap shot might not have the pure power fellow rookie defenseman Eric Gelinas displayed while he was in the NHL for 44 games this season, but it has the same impact.

Devils coach Pete DeBoer: Eric Gelinas can't just be a 'big shot'

The decision to send rookie defenseman Eric Gelinas back to the minors on Friday may be a bit controversial, but Devils coach Pete DeBoer didn’t see it that way.

Devils' Eric Gelinas happy he moved on from goalie, catcher days

When Devils defenseman Eric Gelinas was just a little guy, he would follow his much older brother to the pond behind their Ottawa home and beg his way into outdoor hockey games. Karl Gelinas, then 14, gave in by ordering Eric, 5 at the time, to play goal. Eric wanted to skate around and work on a shot that years later would grow into something special, but then he simply stood...

Eric Gelinas' power play goal gives Devils 4-3 overtime win over Rangers

It may very well be the moment Devils rookie defenseman Eric Gelinas went from being an impressive young prospect to a dynamic NHL star. That’s what an overtime goal against the Rangers can do. “The way he plays, he might be a superstar in this league if he keeps working,” winger Jaromir Jagr said. Gelinas, 22, was modest about the booming one-timer which went past goalie...

Gelinas' OT goal gives Devils win against Rangers
