New Jersey Devils make some key roster moves


With training camps and pre-season underway for the National Hockey League, teams across the league are gearing up to take dethrone the Chicago Blackhawks.

Today the New Jersey Devils made a few key roster moves which involve four players early on. Last season the Devils finished with a record of 19-19-10 and 48 points as they failed to reach the playoffs. They weren’t the worst team in the league, but you have to believe they’re looking to improve their game.

According to the Bergen Record, Graham Black, a 20 year old center from Canada, has been sent to the Swift Current Broncos. He’s spent the last three seasons with them and has scored 44 goals with the Broncos.

25 year old Finnish Forward Harri Pesonen failed to make the opening game roster for the Devils after scoring 14 goals and dishing out 17 assists in 64 games last season in the AHL.

Darcy Zajac is another Forward who failed to make the team as he was cut from the training camp roster. He picked up 17 points and nearly 90 minutes in penalty time in 67 games in the American Hockey League.

The last is the son of Martin Brodeur, Anthony. Both father and son got to work together during training camp but it wasn’t good enough for Anthony to make the team as he returns to the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. He was a seventh round pick in this years draft.
