Devils’ Cory Schneider to wear star-spangled pads at World Cup

There was a time when Pittsburgh Penguins netminder Marc-Andre Fleury was an oddity simply because of his bright yellow pads. But in the years since Fleury came into the league with his luminescent legs, goaltenders have started to get more colorful with their equipment, including some putting designs onto the face of their gear. Former NHL netminder Chris Mason, for instance, made...

They were paid like star players and honored as celebrities in Edmonton...

Behind the Mask with Devils Goalie Ken Appleby

For the first time — in what seems like a long time — the New Jersey Devils have some real, solid depth at the goaltender position throughout their system. Ken Appleby is a big part of that depth and with an expansion draft looming that may very well see the franchise lose a goaltender, his signing as an undrafted free agent and continuing development may become very important...

2016-17 Season Preview: New Jersey Devils

It's hard to say a team that finished in 7th place in their division with 84 points overachieved but I'd argue that the New Jersey Devils did just that. Amazingly, they were in playoff contention for the majority of the season until their all-world goalie Cory Schneider went down with an injury. The Devils had plenty of surprises among their forwards while their defense is as bad...
