After an illustrious NHL career, Scott Niedermayer was inducted into the NHL Hall of Fame in Toronto. He gave a fantastic speech, as he talked about his beginnings and his time spent in New Jersey where he won three Stanley Cups.

Many former Devils were in attendance including Scott Stevens, Colin White, Ken Daneyko, Jay Pandolfo and Joe Nieuwendyk.

General Manager Lou Lamoriello was also in attendance.

Following two strong performances, Cory Schneider will be in net on Tuesday when the Devils take on the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Schneider followed up a performance in which he surrendered two goals to Winnipeg, with a shutout of the New York Rangers last night.

The name Damien Brunner has been thrown around in regards to the New Jersey Devils almost all summer, and it seems like the speculation is not done just yet. Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press is reporting that the Devils are still in talks with the Swiss winger.

Harris and Blitzer are presented with jerseys (Credit- Contributor Dave Turner)

In a deal which had the final touches completed just mere minutes before it was formally announced, the New Jersey Devils are now the property of a group headed by Joshua Harris and David Blitzer.

"I stand here today at Prudential Center with my friend, and fellow co-owner and partner David Blitzer to share with you the sense of excitement we have as the new owners of the New Jersey Devils," Harris said. "We look forward to building excellence on and off the ice for the fans, this city and the state of New Jersey. We have an incredible opportunity in front of us to revitalize this organization, we can rethink the way business is done and infuse the franchise with the resources and talent, both on the hockey and business side and the experience necessary to give the Devils a chance to achieve long-term growth and sustainability at an elite level."

In what can only be described as a tumultuous off-season for the Devils, there was a much welcomed positive moment on Thursday from Yankee Stadium. Bryce Salvador and Andy Greene were on hand at the ballpark for the announcement of the upcoming 2014 NHL Stadium Series games to be played at the iconic Bronx venue.

Both players are excited to be playing in the first outdoor game in Devils history, as it adds yet another great chapter to the Devils-Rangers rivalry.

On a sweltering, humid August afternoon from Yankee Stadium, it's usually all about balls and strikes, home runs and put-outs. But on Thursday, it was the NHL's turn to step up to the plate.

The NHL formally introduced the two upcoming Outdoor Series games to be played at Yankee Stadium in 2014. The first matchup features the New Jersey Devils against their cross-Hudson rival New York Rangers, on Saturday, January 26, 2014 at 12:30 p.m. The second game pits the Rangers against their other metropolitan-area rival, New York Islanders. That game will be played on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.

Ilya Kovalchuk has amazingly skilled hands. With those skilled hands, come the ability to make shots that only a handful of players would even consider taking. Friday's game-winning goal was no different.

With time expiring on an overtime period that never should have been and a minute after a power play that should have ended the game came up empty itself, Kovalchuk found himself standing alone, although maybe that was because he was standing a mere foot above the goal line extended. No matter to Marek Zidlicky, who threaded the pass through the high slot and directly to a wide-open Kovalchuk. Most players would walk the puck out in front of the net, trying to go high on the opposite side -- one of Kovy's favorite shots. Instead, with Capitals goalie Michal Neuvirth just slightly out of position, Kovy sling-shot the puck past Neuvirth and into the open net, setting off a delirious reaction inside The Rock.

"You need your best players to make plays," coach Pete DeBoer said after the game.

Midway through the third period, the Devils took their second too-many-men penalty of the period, handing the Capitals a 5-on-3 on which they would eventually score.What went unnoticed, that is until the Caps erased one of those penalties with their first goal of the night, was a second bench minor and a second 5-on-3. It was a moment that left most of us in press row thoroughly confused. "Wait -- why are the Capitals still on a 5-on-3? Is that another penalty? When did that happen?"

Turns out, it was the coach's fault.

"You know what, really, the guys bailed me out," DeBoer said after the game. "We had two too many men on our bench minor. So, I think I?m leading the team in penalty minutes."

Bryce Salvador's journey the Devils captain is fairly captivating. He spent a full five years in juniors, sandwiched around being a sixth-round draft pick of the Lightning in 1994. After completing his overage year, he spent the next three years playing at the AHL level before finally reaching the NHL in 2000 and spending most of the next seven seasons with the St. Louis Blues. Eventually shipped to the Devils during the 2008 season, Salvador fit in well on the Devils' blueline until an inner-ear (cochlear) concussion wiped out his entire 2010-11 season and had him wondering if he would every play again.

(Note: I've excerpted a small section from the story below, but it's really worth reading in its entirety.)

Via Tom Gulitti of The Record:

He demonstrated his resilience again two seasons ago, when two hits in a preseason game against Philadelphia triggered headaches and vertigo caused by the problem with his inner ear. He never gave up hope of resuming his career, however, and made it back last season to play in all 82 of the Devils? regular season games and all 24 of their playoff contests.

Today the Devils placed Mark Fraser and Rod Pelley on waivers. If they are claimed off waivers they will have to play for that particular club. If they are not claimed by tomorrow they will remain on the NHL roster.

On October 16th I posted a rumor that the Phoenix Coyotes' unsigned center Kyle Turris could be heading to New Jersey. ?Well today he has asked for a trade and the Coyotes have denied his request. Turris' agent Kurt Overhardt has said that it was never about the money. He wants a fresh start with a different club. Overhardt has said that numerous clubs have made trade offers but will not name which clubs have made offers. This is very interesting since the Devils are in Phoenix tonight as they take on the Coyotes. Only time will tell because if Turris is not signed by December 1st he can not play this season. Stay tuned.

With the injuries to Travis Zajac and Jacob Josefson the Devils are lacking at center. Since the Devils have an abondance of wings coach Peter DeBoer has decided to move Zach Parise from left wing to center. Parise will center with Ilya Kovalcuk and Nick Palmieri. Last season Parise spent some time at center but that experiment was short lived. It is going to be very interesting to see how Parise does at center. I can't imagine him being a huge threat in the faceoff circle but he may play surprisingly well in terms of positioning. Tonight will be a good test for Parise as the Devils take on the Kings in Los Angeles.

Martin Brodeur has been listed as day to day since injuring his shoulder against the Los Angeles Kings. Brodeur has not suited up to sit on the bench since. He has been having light practices with goaltender coach Chris Terreri. Brodeur is going on the west coast road trip to Los Angeles, Phoenix and Dallas. Hopefully we can see Brodeur play or at least suit up. Only time will tell.

Former New Jersey Devils' defenseman Colin White returns to New Jersey tonight as the Devils take on the Sharks. During the offseason the Devils bought out Colin White's contract. He signed with the Sharks and has fit in well with them. Hopefully the Devils faithful give him a nice hand when he steps out on the ice tonight. He has really helped out the Devils organization in his tenure with the team.

The New Jersey Devils have announced that they are going to honor the great broadcaster Mike "Doc" Emrick on?February?24th against the Vancouver Canucks.. Doc was the Devils' play by play announcer for the past 18 seasons. He was awarded the Lester Patrick Award in 2004 for his service to the sport of hockey. Doc was elected into the U.S Hockey Hall of Fame in 2011. Now he is play by play announcer for NBC sports.
