Top Devils News

  • Devils' Nolan Foote: Heads to AHL for conditioning

    Foote (undisclosed) was assigned to AHL Utica on Monday for a conditioning stint.

    Foote will finally get to see some game action in the minors after being injured during NHL preseason play. The 23-year-old forward produced 20 goals and 37 points in 55 AHL contests last season. Foote also had one goal in six outings with New Jersey during the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Devils' Tyler Toffoli: Pots goal No. 25

    Toffoli scored a power-play goal in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Ligtning.

    His tally early in the second period cut the Devils' deficit to 2-1, but it was as close as they got on the afternoon. Toffoli extended his point streak to six games with the tally, and the 31-year-old winger has 25 goals on the season -- the fourth time in his career he's reached that mark.

  • Devils' Akira Schmid: Stuck with loss in return to NHL

    Schmid stopped 23 of 26 shots in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Lightning. The fourth goal was an empty-netter.

    Making his first NHL start since Dec. 21, Schmid kept the Bolts off the scoreboard through the first period but things unraveled quickly to begin the second, as he was beaten twice in the first five minutes. The 23-year-old netminder hadn't been particularly impressive during his stint with AHL Utica, and his 3.47 GAA and .886 save percentage through 13 games for the minor-league club are actually worse than his 3.24 GAA and .892 save percentage in 16 contests for the Devils. Schmid will need to perform much better to put any pressure on Nico Daws for the top spot in the crease.

  • Devils' Akira Schmid: Starting Sunday

    Schmid will guard the home cage Sunday versus Tampa Bay, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Schmid was recalled from AHL Utica on Saturday, and he's now poised to make his first NHL appearance since Dec. 21. The 23-year-old Schmid is 5-7-1 with an .893 save percentage and 3.25 GAA with the Devils this season. He'll face a Lightning team that's averaging 3.39 goals per game.

  • Devils' Tyler Toffoli: Two helpers in Saturday's win

    Toffoli notched two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Canadiens.

    The veteran winger extended his point streak to five games with the effort, but it was Toffoli's first multi-point performance since he recorded a hat trick against the Golden Knights on Jan. 22. He's having a solid first season with the Devils, and through 56 games, Toffoli has 24 goals and 41 points.

  • Devils' Timo Meier: Two points against Habs

    Meier scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Canadiens.

    The 27-year-old winger got the Devils on the board early in the second period before setting up Jesper Bratt for what proved to be the game-winner late in the third. It's Meier's first multi-point performance since Dec. 23, and over 16 games since returning from an abdominal injury in mid-January, he's managed a tepid two goals and nine points.

  • Devils' Nico Daws: Hangs on for win Saturday

    Daws made 23 saves in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Canadiens.

    After a scoreless first period, the 23-year-old netminder had trouble keeping Montreal down once the New Jersey offense got rolling. Daws was caught too deep in his net on a Nick Suzuki tally midway through the second. The Devils' netminder also couldn't squeeze another Suzuki shot inside the final two minutes of the third as the Habs tried to rally from a 4-2 deficit. He's allowed at least three goals in four straight starts, going 2-2-0 with a brutal .856 save percentage during that span. With Akira Schmid back on the NHL roster, Daws' run as the clear No. 1 for the Devils could be coming to an end.

  • Devils' Akira Schmid: Back in NHL

    Schmid was summoned from AHL Utica on Saturday.

    In a corresponding move, Isaac Poulter was returned to the minors. Schmid stopped 17 of 19 shots in a 2-1 loss to Syracuse on Friday after being sent to the AHL on Wednesday. He hadn't been in net for New Jersey since Dec. 21, so that extra work allowed him to shake off some rust. Nico Daws started for the Devils on Saturday, so Schmid might play between the pipes in Sunday's home game against Tampa Bay.

  • Devils' Isaac Poulter: Returns to minors

    Poulter was reassigned to AHL Utica on Saturday.

    Poulter, who was called up by New Jersey on Wednesday, didn't end up making his NHL debut. He has a 2.70 GAA and a .908 save percentage in 24 AHL contests this season. Akira Schmid was recalled by the Devils in a corresponding move.

  • Devils' Nico Daws: Starting again Saturday

    Daws will guard the home net Saturday against the Canadiens, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    It'll be the seventh straight appearance for Daws with Vitek Vanecek (lower body) still unavailable. The 23-year-old Daws has lost back-to-back outings, allowing 11 goals on 44 shots in that span. He'll look to right the ship Saturday against a Montreal team averaging 2.74 goals per game.

  • Devils' Nathan Bastian: Lands on IR

    Bastian (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

    Bastian will miss at least the next three games after being injured in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Rangers. He has registered 12 points, 57 shots on goal and 144 hits in 54 contests this season. New Jersey summoned Brian Halonen from AHL Utica on Friday for some additional forward depth.

  • Devils' Brian Halonen: Called up from AHL

    Halonen was brought up from AHL Utica on Friday.

    In a corresponding move, Nathan Bastian (lower body) was placed on injured reserve. Halonen has 13 goals and 17 points in 21 AHL contests this campaign. The 25-year-old forward may get a chance to make his NHL debut Saturday against Montreal.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Supplies only offense in loss

    Hughes scored his 18th goal of the season on a game-high 10 shots on net in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Rangers.

    The 22-year-old also chipped in a blocked shot and a plus-1 rating, impressive considering the final score. Hughes spoiled Igor Shesterkin's shutout bid with a little over two minutes left in the third period, but it was about the only highlight for the Devils on the night. Hughes needed a couple games to shake off the rust after missing most of January and the first game after the All-Star break due to an upper-body injury, but over the last six contests he's racked up three goals and six points while putting 41 shots on net.

  • Devils' Nico Daws: Burned by Blueshirts

    Daws made 13 saves in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Rangers.

    The poor numbers for Daws can be laid squarely at the feet of a Devils' defense that committed multiple turnovers and mental errors in its own zone, but that doesn't change the fact that the 23-year-old has given up 11 goals on only 44 shots over the last two games. The pressure is mounting on New Jersey to make a splash at the trade deadline and acquire a frontline goalie, but in the short term Daws may need a breather after starting six straight games and going 3-3-0 with a 3.19 GAA and .895 save percentage.
