The consensus among most hockey analysts seems to be that forward Jack Hughes will be selected first-overall at this years NHL entry draft. Hughes spent 2018-19 with the U.S. National Team Development Program where he finished as the all-time leader in assists (139) and points (202). Hughes also has skating experience with Devils forward Taylor Hall.
The rest of the top-15 picks will select as follows:
1. New Jersey Devils
2. New York Rangers
3. Chicago Blackhawks
4. Colorado avalanche (from Ottawa)
5. Los Angeles Kings
6. Detroit Red Wings
7. Buffalo Sabres
8. Edmonton Oilers
9. Anaheim Ducks
10. Vancouver Canucks
11. Philadelphia Flyers
12. Minnesota Wild
13. Florida Panthers
14. Arizona Coyotes
15. Montreal Canadiens
The Devils failed to make the playoffs this season but thats not for lack of Sheros trying. Since joining the club, Shero has made several changes – his most notable move being the acquisition of aforementioned superstar Taylor Hall to the team from the Edmonton Oilers. Unfortunately for the Devils, Hall missed most of the second half of the season due to injury.
Shero also re-signed head coach John Hynes to a multi-year extension earlier in the season. Hynes is 141-146-41 during his time as coach.
The New Jersey Devils had the first-overall pick in 2017 where GM Ray Shero drafted forward Nico Hischier.
