Unrestricted: Jiri Tlusty

2015-2016 Summary It’s funny to think at the start of the season, the right wing slot on the line with Adam Henrique and Mike Cammalleri, was a tossup between Lee Stempniak (brought in as a tryout), and Jiri Tlusty. He appeared in just 30 games in 2015-2016, and would slowly lose the faith of the

Three Devils Prospects Ready to Make NHL Jump

Next year the Devils will continue their transition period. With older player like Ruutu, Tlusty, and potentially Elias on their way out, more spots are opening up for the Devils prospects.

Putting Things in “Prospect-ive”: Who Stood Out?

Last weekend, I traveled to Buffalo, New York where I was fortunate to catch the New Jersey Devils as they participated in the inaugural Prospects Challenge tournament. Although they wound up going 0-1-1 and got outscored 10-5, there were a good amount of positives that came from the Devils group of rookie hopefuls. The most devastating
