Another Faceoff Dynamo for NJ?

Another Faceoff Dynamo for NJ?

Photo by Andy Marlin/NHLI via For the better part of the past decade, whenever the New Jersey Devils were in a tight spot and needed a faceoff win desperately, there was only one man to turn to: Travis Zajac. He has been the faceoff king for New Jersey for many years, and has in fact been one of the better faceoff men in all the NHL. Just take a look at his faceoff stats here since the Cup run season of 2012, thanks to NHL.com. Note: Rank is for FO%, and in full seasons, is for skaters with at least 1,000 faceoff attempts. This season, being shortened so far, I stuck it at 100, and...

Devils Collapse in Second Period, Blow Two Leads in 5-2 Loss to Flames

Devils Collapse in Second Period, Blow Two Leads in 5-2 Loss to Flames

Matt Tennyson in the dust. | Photo by Brett Holmes/Icon Sportswire via Jack Hughes came to play. Most of the defense did not. First Period: The Hischier line started the game with early zone time, but could not get a shot on after cycling the puck around the offensive zone. The Flames got their first good chance of the game when Sam Bennett played the puck across the slot with two other Flames around the net, but the puck was not directed towards Blackwood and the Devils were able to play it away. Travis Zajac nearly connected with Jesper Boqvist for what would have been his first NHL...

As the Devils youth movement continues apace, though, the now-34-year old Zajac is becoming something of a crutch for the Devils. Eventually, Zajac’s successors will have to stand on their own and just as importantly, the coaches will have to start managing that transfer of responsibility. So far this season, a familiar trend has appeared at the top of the Devils’ depth chart: Travis Zajac comfortably leads all...

Devils’ Zacha off to Promising Start

When the New Jersey Devils drafted Jack Hughes with the first overall pick, Pavel Zacha was the center who benefited the least. Nico Hischier was asserting himself as a fixture in their top six, and there was no way Travis Zajac would be anything less than a third-line center. That meant Zacha was likely heading for a […] The post Devils’ Zacha off to Promising Start appeared first on The Hockey Writers.
