Which New Jersey Devils Made the Cut ?
The New Jersey Devils’ final 23 player roster is set for the 2019-2020 season.
This roster is open to changes if any injuries occur, a situation to which the Devils have become all too accustomed from last season.
The team’s 2018 first-round pick, defenseman Ty Smith, was among the final cuts made by the team. Smith will go back down to the WHL to play one more season of junior hockey.
Another defenseman, Matt Tennyson, was also placed on waivers and sent back to the AHL’s Binghamton Devils on Monday.
Forwards: Nico Hischier, Jack Hughes, Nikita Gusev, Kyle Palmieri, Kevin Rooney, Wayne Simmonds, Jesper Bratt, Jesper Boqvist, Blake Coleman Taylor Hall, John Hayden, Miles Wood, Pavel Zacha, Travis Zajac
Defensemen: Damon Severson, P.K. Subban, Sami Vatanen
Will Butcher, Connor Carrick, Andy Greene, Mirco Mueller
Goalies: Cory Schneider, Mackenzie Blackwood
The Devils are currently in Annapolis, Maryland for team bonding. They will have their final preseason practice on Thursday. This should give a good insight on the opening-night lineup when the Devils take on the Winnipeg Jets Friday night.
