REID BOUCHER RUMORS & GOSSIP
from Dave Hutchinson of the Star Ledger,
After a pair of two-game auditions (four games total) on the first line with Jagr and Zajac, rookie Reid Boucher was sent down to AHL Albany on Wednesday and replaced by rookie call-up Joe Whitney this morning. Whitney will now join Jagr and Zajac on the top line in Friday night’s home game against the Capitals in his NHL debut.
Reid Boucher's 62 goals last season in the Ontario Hockey League didn’t translate into instant success in the NHL.
The Devils gave the rookie winger chance after chance after chance to produce in his first NHL stint, but 23 games of opportunity, including four on the top line, led to just three goals and seven points.
The Devils still are high on Boucher, but the 20-year...
The Devils have assigned rookie left wing Reid Boucher to Albany of the AHL. Boucher, 20, had two goals and five assists in 23 NHL games since being called up on Dec. 4. He picked up an assist on Jaromir Jagr’s goal in Tuesday’s 7-1 win over St. Louis. Boucher was leading Albany with 10 goals in 21 AHL games before he was called up and also had eight assists. Sending Boucher...
Reid Boucher (1 G, 4 SOG, +1) is a pure sniper in every sense of the word. Hockey word, that is. His shot is as quick as it is accurate and it’s bloody quick. Last year Boucher potted 62 goals in just 68 games, breaking Steven Stamkos’ club record for goals in a season with 60 back in 2011-2012. How’s that for a pedigree? Dude’s leaving broken Stamkos goal scoring records...
Jaromir Jagr seems to pass another NHL great every time he scores a goal.
By scoring the 693rd of his career Wednesday night the Devils’ 41-year-old right winger passed Steve Yzerman for sole possession of eighth place on the all-time list and now stands one goal behind Mark Messier.
Because it wound up being the winning goal in the Devils’ 5-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators...
The Devils recalled rookie left winger Reid Boucher from Albany (AHL) Wednesday and he will be in the lineup against the Montreal Canadiens at Prudential Center.
Ryan Carter, hurt in a fight with Buffalo's Marcus Foligno Saturday night, was put on injured reserve retroactive to that game.
General manager Lou Lamoriello said Carter's injury is his leg, not the facial cuts...

When Reid Boucher was drafted in 2011, the expectations for him weren't overly high.
He was selected by the New Jersey Devils in the 4th round (99th overall) and was labeled a bit of a high-risk, high-reward pick. If Boucher ever panned out properly, there was a chance he could be a top-6 forward. But that seemed unlikely.
The New Jersey Devils have signed Ontario Hockey League-leading goal scorer Reid Boucher to an entry-level contract.
President and general manager Lou Lamoriello announced the deal for the 2011 fourth-round draft pick Wednesday without giving details.
The 19-year-old Lansing, Mich. native has scored 62 goals for Sarnia, breaking the club record of 58 set by Tampa Bay's Steven...
