There hasn’t been a lot of news from the New Jersey Devils lately, but there are some things you can catch up on in the past week. The NHL unveiled their reverse retro jersey series, and the Devils reverse retro jersey series was widely received with rave reviews by fans and the rest of the hockey world.
We also take a look at Alexander Holtz, whose game is reaching new heights in Sweden, and how other devils’ prospects have evolved over the past week. eval (ez_write_tag ([[250,250], ‘thehockeywriters_com-medrectangle-3’, ‘ezslot_4’, 662, ‘0’, ‘0’]);
On Monday, the Devils, along with the rest of the league, unveiled their reverse retro jerseys. Their uniforms pay homage to the team’s red and green uniforms from 1982-92.
I’m not usually the one who makes a huge ton of new jerseys, but Adidas has done a great job with the Devils’ reverse retro. The team’s original red and green color scheme comes from legendary New Jersey folklore, inspired by the Jersey Devil (red) who allegedly lived in the infamous Pine Barrens (green) in the southern part of the state.
The inverted retro is also the first time the Devils wear a mostly green jersey. You will wear them four times over the next season and will be sold to the general public in December. 1. Because of their color scheme, they could also make the perfect Christmas present.
eval (ez_write_tag ([[468,60], ‘thehockeywriters_com-Leader-1’, ‘ezslot_3’, 656, ‘0’, ‘0’])); Holtz had one of the best U-18 seasons in SHL history in 2019-20 with 16 points (9 goals, 7 assists) in 35 games. This is one of the reasons the Devils designed it with the seventh overall win in the 2020 design. Some people, including me, were a little surprised that they preferred him to Marco Rossi.
But Holtz’s start to the SHL season should obliterate every second guess you had about the Devils who designed it. He finished this past week with four assists in three games and now has up to 11 points in 14 games; The latter is the second best on Djurgarden. He also has a Corsi stake (CF%) of 52. 72%, and remember, he won’t turn 19 until the end of January.
What was most impressive about Holtz this season was his game. Everyone knew how good their shot was, but their game improved. It was an underrated part of his design game, but it now looks like it will become one of his main weapons. If it stays that way, it looks like he has all the tools to be a top notch winger in the NHL.
Holtz wasn’t the only Devils prospect in action over the past week. So let’s look at how everyone else has fared.
That concludes the roundup of this week’s Devils news and rumors. When the NHL and NHLPA approve a Jan. 1 start for the 2020-21 season, which means the training camp could start right after the American Thanksgiving Day. We’ll have that and all of the other Devils news when it happens.
