New Jersey Devils Stats, Odds, Standings and Schedule for NHL Season 2023

New Jersey Devils Last Season Performance

The 2022-23 season was a relatively successful one for the Devils as they returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2018. New Jersey finished the regular-season with a 52-22-8 record, marking its second 50-win season in franchise history.

The Devils met the New York Rangers in the first round of the playoffs, winning the series in seven games after suffering a pair of 5-1 losses in Games 1 and 2. It was New Jersey’s first playoff series win since the 2011-12 season. However, the Devils fell in the second round to Carolina in five games to mark the end of their season.

Offseason Changes

New Jersey Devils Key Additions

The Devils made a number of moves in the offseason outside of re-signing Jesper Bratt, Erik Haula and Timo Meier.

New Jersey traded for right wing Tyler Toffoli, who should bring some more veteran experience up front and who finished last season with 73 points, including 34 goals.

The Devils also signed forwards Michael McLeod and Tomas Nosek to one-year contracts. Both should add depth to New Jersey’s fourth line after the two combined for 44 points last season.

New Jersey Devils Key Subtractions

The Devils also lost a few players via free agency and trade, sending defenseman Damon Severson to Columbus for a third-round draft pick.

Severson had 33 points as a defenseman last season, including seven goals and two that were game-winners. New Jersey also let left wing Tomas Tatar leave in free agency. He had the sixth-most points on the team last season with 48 on 20 goals and 28 assists.

Defenseman Ryan Graves and left wing Miles Wood also signed elsewhere in the offseason. Wood recorded 27 points last season while Graves added 26. He also added a useful presence to New Jersey’s fourth-ranked penalty-kill unit, tallying the second-most minutes on the team.

New Jersey Devils Head Coaching Analysis

Lindy Ruff has been the head coach for New Jersey for the past three seasons, leading the Devils to the playoffs in his third season at the helm.

Ruff previously spent the most time as Buffalo’s head coach, coaching the Sabres for 14 seasons before he was fired in year 15. He led Buffalo to eight playoff appearances as well as a Stanley Cup Final showing before being fired. Ruff then took over as Dallas’ head coach for four seasons before landing in New Jersey.

New Jersey Devils Prediction for the 2023-24 Season

After a successful 2022-23 season, the Devils will be looking to make a longer run in the postseason in 2023-24. With the return of some of their top scorers, they are expected to as well, with NHL odds making New Jersey the second-best bet at +200 to win the Metropolitan Division. Center Jack Hughes was a key player for New Jersey’s success last season, scoring 43 goals and 99 points. The former No. 1 overall pick should play a big role in their continued success this season. With more veteran experience joining New Jersey, its offense should be hard to stop once again, helping the Devils surpass the 105.5-point threshold from NHL predictions.
