A Landlubber’s Guide to the New Jersey Devils

Hey you. You’re swept up in all this Seattle Kraken hype. You want to know more about hockey but don’t know where to start. Well, we want to help make these games easy and fun for you to watch.

Throughout the season, we’ll release Landlubber’s Guides designed with the new fan in mind. This includes basic need-to-know info for you to absorb before you watch Kraken games and highlights.

Let’s dive in to the New Jersey Devils.

Are they any good?

Historically, no. The Devils have finished recent seasons either at or near the bottom of the standings in the Metropolitan Division. But they’ve got some good pieces on the roster this year. They probably won’t make the playoffs but maybe they can start turning things around?

Who should I look out for?

Any Seattle ties?

Not that I know of. If there’s anyone on the Devils who used to play in the PNW or any of our local WHL teams, let me know in the comments!

Odds and Ends

Today’s game starts at 4PM PST, broadcast on ROOT Sports NW for local subscribers and ESPN+ for out of market fans.
