Ray Shero took the reins for the New Jersey Devils last year—this year, the show is his and his alone. With longtime GM Lou Lamoriello setting sail for Toronto, the Devils have a new look at the top of the chain. Shero has started to reshape the franchise in hopes of a quick turnaround from last season, plugging in head coach John Hynes to lead a squad that’ll be headlined by breakout star Adam Larsson. The fifth-year Swedish defenseman elevated his game to a new level last year, and he’ll be focused on creating a much different season for fans in 2015-16.

1/14/16 - The NHL has suspended a New Jersey Devils player for an illegal check in a Tuesday night game against the Blues. The league is calling Bobby Farnham’s hit violent and predatory because his victim, Dmitrij Jaskin, was particularly defenseless at the time of impact. Farnham was angry after being legally checked by another player just seconds before and sought revenge on the first Blues player he saw. He will be sitting out the next four matches in addition to the in-game punishments he received from referees. The Devils will play without him until Jan. 23. In the meantime, the team is slated to play at Arizona this Saturday, Jan. 16, at home against the Flames on Tuesday, Jan. 19, and the Senators on Thursday, Jan. 21.
1/7/16 - They had logged three-plus goals in their last five outings, but the New Jersey Devils finally ran into a wall and it was called Petr Mrazek.

12/31/15 - The New Jersey Devils have won two of their last three games, two of which were on away rinks. Most recently, they had a home rematch against the Carolina Hurricanes, and the Devils were able to come away with a strong 2-3 victory, shutting their opponents out in the first and third period. This wraps up their series of away games, and the Devils will be able to spend some more time back in New Jersey with their fans. Their first home game will be on January 2nd, when they host the Dallas Stars. Tickets start at $52. Afterward, they will host the Detroit Pistons on January 4th before hitting the road again.
12/22/15 - The New Jersey Devils ended their alternating win-loss streak this week, but not in the way they had hoped. They lost a Thursday evening game against the Panthers 5-1 and then again came up short in another loss against the Ducks on Saturday. Bringing the losing streak to three was a Sunday night game lost in shootout against the Bruins. With the bad luck, many are saying that the Devils have little hope of making an appearance in the playoffs. Hopefully the naysayers will be dead wrong when they take on the Red Wings this Tuesday, Dec. 22. After Tuesday’s game the Devils will be up against the Hurricanes on Saturday, Dec. 26 at the Prudential Center in Newark.
12/17/15 - It seems like the New Jersey Devils are always up and down, and their latest game was definitely more of the latter. They were completely humiliated while on the road against rivals the New York Islanders on Sunday night, as they were shut out 0 – 4. New York dominated the entire game, outsmarting the Devils’ defense repeatedly to score several unanswered goals. New Jersey will be on the road to play the Buffalo Sabres before coming home to play the Florida Panthers on Thursday night. The Devils could really use some support right now, so be sure to get your ticket to Thursday’s game. Tickets are just $19 and up.
12/10/15 - Some of the New Jersey Devils players took the time to visit a children’s hospital this week, proving that they’re not only great hockey players, but also really great guys. When David Schlemko, Cory Schneider and Mike Cammalleri walked in to visit some sick kids, it was Lucy Jones who spotted them first. The ten-year-old and other kids got to meet some of their favorite players and take some pictures. These guys will be back on the ice in no time, however, as they have a busy week of practice and games ahead of them. This Friday, Dec. 11, the Devils will host the Red Wings at the Prudential Center in Newark. Tickets can be purchased now for $24.
12/3/15 - The New Jersey Devils just can’t seem to get any steam going. After winning a thrilling matchup against the feisty Montreal Canadiens in overtime on the road, the Devils fell to the awful Colorado Avalanche at home. The Avalanche beat out New Jersey 2 – 1, scoring two unanswered goals in the second period. They’ll now head out on a road trip to face the Carolina Hurricanes. Will the Devils be able to get their season back on track before playoffs time? Come find out at their next home game against the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday, December 4. Tickets are on sale and can be purchased for as little as $38.
11/26/15 - The New Jersey Devils are currently in a tight race for a middle position in the Metropolitan Division. They are trailing the Penguins by only one win and the Islanders are right on their coattails, behind by a single win as well. The Devils game against the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday night was a great win to add to the Devils record. The game started out slowly until the Devils scored the first goal of the game in the second period. Both teams were racing to the finish line during the third period, but the Devils were able to keep up with Canucks and won the game 3-2. Get your tickets to see them play live again on November 27.
11/19/15 - After winning two in a row, the New Jersey Devils were unable to maintain the momentum and lost a close game to the Flames on November 17. The Flames scored early, ending the first period ahead 2-0. However, the Devils were not ready to give up and fought back. Bobby Farnham scored early in the second period, closing the gap to just one point. After the Flames got another point, Jordin Tootoo scored a power play goal to once again get within one point. The Devils could not get any more traction, and the Flames went away the victors. The Devils next play the Oilers on November 20 in Edmonton. You can still get tickets for $22 and up.
11/12/15 - The New Jersey Devils are dominating the competition. They have won four of their last five matches. Most recently, they hosted the Pittsburgh Penguins and ended up completely shutting them out while scoring four times. The Devils have three consecutive away matches coming up, but things are certainly looking up for New Jersey. They have earned a season record of 10-6-1, which puts them third in the Metropolitan Division. Fans should look out for the Devils’ homecoming on November 25th. They will host the Columbus Blue Jackets in what is expected to be a hugely exciting match. Tickets are available starting at $19. Be sure to get your tickets and come out to show your support.
11/5/15 - From the moment the puck hit the ice Tuesday night, it looked to be a tight game for the New Jersey Devils and the Islanders. After a lot of back and forth in the first period, Brock Nelson scored the first goal for the Islanders. The Devils evened things up in the third with a goal from Travis Zajac, but with just two minutes left, the Isles hit the back of the net one final time. Despite losing this time around, the New Jersey is in a good spot in the Metropolitan Division and have won six of their last eight. They will take on the Blackhawks this Friday (Nov. 6) at the Prudential Center.
10/29/15 - Donna Kara has been a New Jersey Devils fan since 1986 and has attended many games, but she probably never thought she would ever be the guest of honor! She has been fighting cancer for several years now, and, just a few days ago, got news that the disease had returned. The Devils participate in the Hockey Fights Cancer initiative every year, and Kara was honored at Tuesday night’s game. Other attendees were able to write the names of loved ones fighting cancer on cards and were given ribbons to wear. In all, over $30,000 dollars were raised for research and care programs. The Devils will be playing the Islanders this Saturday, Oct. 31 at the Prudential Center.
10/21/15 - When the 2015 NHL season started, not many predicted the New Jersey Devils to be as good as they are right now. After playing against the Rangers and the Coyotes recently, they managed to win both games in overtime and are hoping to use that energy to their advantage this week. Adding to the excitement was the fact that Travis Zajac scored his first goal of the season, and he definitely celebrated in style. “We’re a little worried about his body after it…Get some ice packs out,” fellow Devil Mike Cammalleri joked. Hopefully that momentum will carry them through a couple upcoming road games against the Senators and Sabres. They head home to host the Blue Jackets on Tuesday, Oct. 27.
10/12/15 - The New Jersey Devils are off to a rough start to the season after losing back-to-back games on October 9 and 10. They lost to the Winnipeg Jets 1 – 3 in the season opener, allowing all three goals from the opposing team in the second period. The following night, they lost to the Washington Capitals in devastating fashion. New Jersey managed to keep pace with the Capitals until the third period, with both teams scoring a pair of goals in the first period. Unfortunately, the Capitals pulled away in the final period to end the game 5 – 3. The Devils will now look to regroup before taking on the San Jose Sharks this Friday.
10/7/15 - The New Jersey Devils are ready to start the 2015-16 season, which begins for them on October 9 when they host the Winnipeg Jets. This week, the Devils announced their official roster for the opening night, which has two goalies, seven defenseman, fourteen forwards, and two players on the injured list: Patrik Elias on non-roster and Ryane Clowe on the reserve. They acquired Brian O'Neill from the Kings by trading a conditional seventh-round selection in the 2017 draft. They also recently signed goalie Ken Appleby to a three -year contract, although Appleby did not make the final roster for opening night. You still have a chance to get your tickets to watch them play in person, with prices starting at $72.
9/16/15 - Finishing out with a 32-36-14 total for the 2014-15 season wasn’t exactly how the New Jersey Devils drew it up. This year, a new general manager and coach will take charge of the franchise, one which is fighting to get back to the NHL postseason to satisfy a rabid fan base hungry for success. Longtime Devils architect Lou Lamoriello won’t be a part of things in Jersey this year, for the first time in 28 seasons. Although it’s always tough to part with a cornerstone such as Lou, the players are speaking of a fresh energy and excitement as they get prepped for the upcoming year. Preseason seating is on sale now for the Devils’ matchup with the Islanders on Friday 9/25—get in to the Prudential Center from $12!
4/10/15 - After a win against the Canadiens on April 3, the New Jersey Devils lost their two games against the Rangers on the 4th and 7th. The first game was a blowout, with a final score of 6-1. However, their next match went a little better, with a final score of 4-2. The Rangers got on the board first and were in the lead 2-0 late in the first period before Patrik Elias scored to reduce the deficit. New York drew ahead again early in the third period, but Steve Bernier scored to keep the Devils in the game. However, it was not enough for the win. The Devils have two more games in the regular season, and next play the Lightning on April 9th. Tickets remain available, starting at $18.
3/26/15 - ince their game against the Arizona Coyotes, the New Jersey Devils have kept their record even with 31 wins and 31 losses. They had a great game against the Buffalo Sabres on March 20, keeping the Devils in the race for the NHL playoffs. They were missing three of their leading scorers during that game, but luckily Steve Bernier stepped up to the plate and scored twice. Their backup goalie, Keith Kinkaid gave their starting goalie, Cory Schneider a break from game playing on Friday. He stopped 28 shot attempts, which lead the team to a 3-1 win over the Sabres. The Devils have a tough match up against the Anaheim Ducks on March 29 at the Prudential Center in New Jersey. Tickets for that exciting game start at $12.
3/17/15 - The New Jersey Devils are currently winning just as much as they are losing. Their record is completely even with 29 wins and 29 losses and they stand in the sixth spot in the Metropolitan division. They did pull off a convincing win against the Arizona Coyotes on March 14, ending the game with a three-goal lead. The goalie, Cory Schneider, was on fire by saving 30 goal attempts and keeping the Coyotes out of the winners spot. Their offense also played well together. After a sluggish start, they split all four goals among four different players, making them hard to stop. They were able to end their time on the road with one win in their pocket. See how they play at home against the New York Islanders on March 21. Tickets are being sold for $29 a piece.
3/11/15 - Things are still off and on for the New Jersey Devils. They have won about half of their recent games and their performance has been inconsistent. The Devils even lost against the Columbus Blue Jackets when they had dominated them a few days earlier. More recently, New Jersey got a strong 2-5 win against the Philadelphia Flyers. They shut the Flyers out in the second period and managed to score twice in two different periods. Adam Henrique contributed two points and Steve Bernier assisted three different times. There are only six remaining home games in the regular season, so be sure to catch them live while you can. Your next opportunity will be on March 17th when they play the Pittsburgh Penguins. Tickets start at $33.
3/4/15 - The New Jersey Devils lost their home game against the Calgary Flames, who are also going for the wild card spot for the playoffs. Then they lost another important game against the Boston Bruins two days later. These losses are disappointing, but the team has been doing well since then. First they managed to completely shut out the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-0 on Feb. 28th, then the New Jersey Devils beat out the Nashville Predators 1-3 on March 3rd. Next, the Devils will be having a rematch against the Blue Jackets on March 6th. New Jersey was able to dominate them on their own ice, so hopefully the Devils will not have any trouble in a home game. You can attend for as little as $26.
2/25/15 - With the end of the season just over a month away, the New Jersey Devils remain within striking distance of a wild card spot for the playoffs, having won four straight games to close within eight points of Boston in the East. The streak began with a shootout victory over the Buffalo Sabres, followed by wins over Vancouver, Carolina, and Arizona by two-plus goals each. The Devils might have their toughest match on Wednesday night, as they face off with another team on the playoff bubble in the Calgary Flames. New Jersey will host another crucial game Friday night, when the Boston Bruins come to town. A limited number of tickets are still available for the Prudential Center, starting at $51—but act now, because they won’t last long!
2/20/15 - Four losses in a row seemed to be enough for the New Jersey Devils, who scraped past the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night with a shootout win, 2-1. After going 0-14 in shootouts last season, New Jersey is 4-6 this year, thanks in large part to contributions from Scott Gomez and Jacob Josefson—the two centers responsible for the winning goals in Tuesday’s game. “I think we feel a little more comfortable in the shootout than we did last year,” Devils goalie Cory Schneider remarked. “It was good to see those guys bury those first two (goals).” New Jersey now looks forward to Friday night, when they will host the Vancouver Canucks at the Prudential Center. Tickets are still available from $24, but they won’t last long!
2/13/15 - The New Jersey Devils will look to put a halt to a two-game losing skid on Friday night, when they take to the road to face the Chicago Blackhawks. Jersey’s 6-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens came a night after a 4-1 victory over the Maple Leafs, as backup goaltender Keith Kincaid was overwhelmed by Montreal’s 44 shots on goal. Cory Schneider returned against the lowly Edmonton Oilers two nights later, but New Jersey’s offense managed only 14 scoring attempts, opening the door for Edmonton’s 2-1 upset victory. The Devils are hoping a visit to Chicago will get them back into the win column, as they face a Blackhawks team seeking to snap a two-game losing streak of their own. Limited seats are still available at the United Center, starting at $112.
2/3/15 - The New Jersey Devils' season has been marred with rough games and difficult challenges, however they have been playing very well in the last few weeks. They may not have much chance of reaching the top of their division, currently sitting in sixth with 19-22-9, but they won four of their last six games, the most recent of which against the Florida Panthers. Jaromir Jagr and Mike Cammalleri each scored in the first period and then the New Jersey Devils went on the defensive. They held their two-point lead until the 17 minute mark of the final period when they scored again. More impressively, the Devils took about half as many shots, but made more and blocked all of the Panthers' shot minus one. They play the Toronto Maple Leafs next and tickets start at $19.
1/29/15 - As the NHL goes into the final weeks before the Stanley Cup, the New Jersey Devils just hope to finish the season with pride. They are looking toward the future, so the remaining games will help them choose which players remain on the team and which ones will be traded or let go. They aren’t without talent, Scott Gomez and Steve Bernier are good players that will take the team into the next year. They have five home games beginning Wednesday (1/28). On Friday (1/30), the Devils host the popular Pittsburgh Penguins, followed by a Saturday game against the Florida Panthers. Tickets for the Penguins’ game start at $54. For the Panthers’ game it’s just $41. The Devils need their fans more than ever.
1/21/15 - The New Jersey Devils won in their last game before they have a week off when they faced the San Jose Sharks on Monday, Jan. 19. Goalie Cory Scheinder was back on the ice, after missing two periods against the Anaheim Ducks due to a puck to the helmet. He made 34 saves, only letting two goals in by the Sharks. Helping ensure the victory on offense were Mike Cammalleri, Steve Bernier, Jodin, Tootoo, Travis Zajac, and Jacob Josefson, each player scoring a point for the team's 5-2 victory. This was the last game of a three game run in California, where they also beat the Los Angeles Kings, but lost 5-1 against the Anaheim Ducks. They next face the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday, Jan. 28, with tickets starting at $21.
1/13/15 - The New Jersey Devils haven’t had the best of luck as of late. They were hoping to pull away with a win last Friday against the Islanders, but failed to do so. They ended up losing 3-2 in OT. Moments left in the third, John Tavares scored what many believed to be a lucky goal. He then scored another quick goal just seconds left in overtime, helping them derail the Devils. Travis Zajac had a great showing, scoring once and threatening several other times. His team couldn’t rally behind him, though, and they will have to come back stronger in their next outing. Up next for them is a game against the Los Angeles, who have shown a lot of promise this season. The Devils need to control the tempo early if they want to come out victorious.
1/8/15 - The New Jersey Devils next face the Boston Bruins on Jan. 8th, after hosting the Buffalo Sabres for a 4-1 win on Jan. 6th. The Devils started the Sabres game strong, with an early goal by Patrik Elias and a second goal in the first period by Jordin Tootoo. Travis Zajac scored their third point during a penalty play, and Elias scored against an empty net late in the third period, which was his 1,000 point. Their win against the Sabres was the first back-to-back win since early November (they beat the Philadelphia Flyers 5-2 on Saturday, Jan. 3rd, and they will be hoping to turn it into a streak when they face the Bruins. After the Bruins, the Devils return home to face the New York Islanders on the 9th, with tickets starting at $89.
1/1/15 - The New Jersey Devils beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1 on December 29, the first win of the two games they have played since head coach Pete DeBoer was dismissed on December 26. Scott Stevens and Adam Oates are taking over as the interim coaches, and general manager Lou Lamoriello will take on some coaching duties as well. The plan is to use a three coach committee system that has Stevens working with the defense and Oates on the forwards, with Lamoriello's role temporary. With the system, the Devils can focus on strengthening their weak areas and turn their season around. The new coaching system will continue to be tested when they face the Red Wings in Detroit on December 31, before heading home for three games. Tickets are still on sale, with seats for the Red Wings game starting at $34.
12/25/14 - The New Jersey Devils are coming off a 4-0 loss versus the Washington Capitals, which adds to their lackluster 12-17-6 record. They are ranked 7th in the Metropolitan Division. The Devils next face the Carolina Hurricanes, who have also had a lackluster season. The last time the two teams met, the Devils were able to win 2-1, and they will be looking to do so again. Their last win in regulation was against the Hurricanes, although they have since then also won in a shootout. Both teams want a win, so it will be a good game to see who can add another point to their record. After the Hurricanes, the Devils will face the New York Rangers away on the 27th (tickets starting at $38), before heading home to face off against the Pittsburgh Penguins ($10).
12/18/14 - The New Jersey Devils' losing streak continues as they take on the Ottawa Senators. The dissappointing game ended without the Devils scoring a single point. They did, however, outshoot the Senators by more than double. Unfortunately, none of New Jersey's 34 shots got past Ottawa goalie, Craig Anderson. The Devil's Eric Gelinas led both teams for shots at 6. The good news is that New Jersey held a pretty strong defense themselves. Ottawa only scored twice and were completely shut out in the second period. This is New Jersey's fifth loss in a row which brings them to 11-16-6. The Devils' next opportunity to end their losing streak is on Friday when they take on the Tampa Bay Lightning for a home game. Tickets start at $23.
12/12/14 - Unfortunately, the New Jersey Devils had their second loss in a row on Thursday. They have been having a rough season so far and their game against the Philadelphia Flyers was no exception. Only being able to put away one point in the second period for the entire game, New Jersey lost 1-4. Martin Havlat scored for the Devils with Scott Gomez and Damon Severson assisting. This loss brings New Jersey to 11-14-5. They are actually just ahead of the Flyers in the Metropolitan Division, but still trailing in 5th. There may not be much chance of catching up with the Penguins who lead with 18-6-3, but the Devils will continue to play hard on the ice. They will return to New Jersey on the 17th.
12/4/14 - The New Jersey Devils continue to have a rough season as they lose one more time on Saturday to the New York Islanders. After answering New York’s first goal with one of their own to tie the game in the first period, New Jersey just couldn’t get another point in the last two periods. The final score came to 1-3. Damien Brunner scored the Devil’s point and Adam Larsson and Michael Ryder assisted. Even though New York won the game, New Jersey was able to get 35 shots off over the Islander’s 28. In the third period alone, the Devils took 16 shots while their opponents only took 2. They will be playing the Pittsburg Penguins next in an away game, but will return on the 6th.
11/26/14 - The New Jersey Devils had a shootout loss to the Calgary Flames on Saturday for their 9th loss of the season. It was a loss that should have been a win, but they have to focus on their next game against the Detroit Red Wings on Friday after Thanksgiving. The Devils will be on home ice, and they want their fans to come out and show their support as they take on a good team that plays well. You’ll want to get tickets for this home game before the Devils go out on the road for three games before they play at home again. The Devils are working on their game to pull ahead in the standings, and there is a lot of season left for them to improve.
11/19/14 - The New Jersey Devils had another loss on Tuesday. Being unable to score until the last period, a final score of 1-3 against the Winnipeg Jets gives New Jersey their second loss in a row. Winnipeg also had 12 more shot than the Devils who had 22. Sitting at 8-9-2, New Jersey has been having a hard time pulling ahead, always managing to just break even. They are looking at a series of away games, but hopefully they will be able to change their luck before the season ends. Your next opportunity to see them will be Friday, the 28th, when they return to New Jersey to take on the Detroit Red Wings who are at 9-4-5. Tickets are already available and are starting as low as $29.
11/13/14 - In Tuesday’s game against the Minnesota Wild, the New Jersey Devils took a lead of two goals in the second period and won the game for their fans after a losing streak of four games. They left the rink with confidence in a much needed victory. On Saturday, the Devils host the Colorado Avalanche in an evening game. Goalie Cory Schneider is set to have a record 18th start for the season, playing in every game so far this season. At 7-7-2, the Devils sit in 6th place in the Metropolitan Division, which is where they finished last season. They are showing improvement, so you will want to get your tickets to their home game before they go out on the road again. Show the Devils your support!
11/6/14 - The New Jersey Devils are having a good season going into November at 2nd in the Metropolitan Division with a 6-4-2 record. Even though the St. Louis Blues shut out the Devils in Tuesday’s game, the teams were evenly matched until the third period when St. Louis took the lead and the Devils couldn’t match the goal. The Devils have a chance to even the score when they play the Blues again on Friday at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri. The Devils are on a road trip with games against the Red Wings at Detroit, MI, and the Boston Bruins. They need your support to get back into the winning column. Get your tickets for all their games and enjoy an evening while you cheer them on!
10/30/14 - Following a shootout win against the Winnipeg Jets, New Jersey Devils fans must be feeling very emboldened. Making some smart moves during the offseason apparently has provided the crucial ingredients the team had been missing over the past two seasons. With a more complete offense on the ice to help support the efforts of an impressive defense, the Devils could become very bad news for Pittsburgh and the NY Islanders in a hurry. Though New Jersey may be tempted to go into their game against Columbus at ease, it is important that they maintain focus to continue gaining on the Metropolitan Division leaders. To enjoy Saturday’s game against Columbus, Devils fans should get tickets before they’re gone. Starting at $29 per seat, the Devils know just how to show their fans a good time.
The New Jersey Devils are coming off a second consecutive season in which the 2012 Stanley Cup Final team missed playoffs. Their Achilles heel proved to be an inability to score (27th in goals and shots per game), but New Jersey thrived on defense thanks to legendary net minder Martin Brodeur and future superstar Cory Schneider. The Devils had the league’s best penalty kill and ranked 6th in goals against per game, but sans Brodeur (free agency), Schneider will emerge as the No. 1 goalie and hold the fort down in New Jersey. The Devils missed postseason by just six points last year and made moves in the offseason to boost their chances for a lengthy campaign in the 2014-2015 season.
GM Lou Lamoriello attempted to remedy their ineffective problem over summer, with the signing of Mike Cammalleri and Martin Havlat, who should provide ample support to Travis Zajac and Jaromir Jagr. The 43 year-old veteran leader has defied his age and looks primed for another productive season. Jagr is likely to achieve two career milestones: reaching the Top 5 in all-time points leaders (current No.6) and all-time goals leaders (current No. 7).
The New Jersey Devils 2014-2015 schedule opens up with four games on the road, starting at Philadelphia against the rival Flyers en Route 95 (10/9). The home opener at Prudential Center is slated for Oct. 18 against the San Jose Sharks. Don’t miss the Apr 4 and 7 games against New York, for an exciting home-and-home series with arch nemeses Rangers. The LA Kings (who ousted NJ in 2012) visit Newark for a rematch on Mar. 23, and Zach Parise makes his return to Prudential center with the Minnesota Wild on Nov. 11. Will the improved offense create enough production to snap their two-year playoff drought? Score New Jersey Devils tickets and find out!
4/8/14 – For the tenth time this season, the Devils were shutout Monday. The 0-1 loss to the Flames had New Jersey’s playoff hopes doing a slow burn.
