Devils Highlights

For 25 years, the New Jersey Devils were one of the most excellent NHL franchises. While the team has become a doormat lately, the Devils could return to prominence at some point. Many Hall of Famers like Martin Brodeur, who led the Devils’ team stats in goaltending, have called this franchise home.

The Devils relocated twice before settling in New Jersey. During their times in Kansas City and Colorado, the franchise could not win. It was only when Lou Lamoriello joined the franchise in the late 1980s that New Jersey ascended atop the NHL odds.

New Jersey Devils Stats & History

The Devils first came into the league as the Kansas City Scouts in 1974. This was short-lived, as the team lasted just two seasons in the city before relocating to Denver to become the Colorado Rockies. This was not much of an improvement because financial instability continued to trouble the franchise forcing it to be sold and moved to New Jersey in 1982.

The franchise were renamed the “Devils” after the myth of the Jersey Devil creature. While the team’s off-ice outlook improved, their on-ice performance did not. New Jersey failed to win more than 29 goals in their first five seasons and was constantly at the bottom of its division.

But the arrival of Lamoriello in 1987 changed everything for the franchise. Lamoriello, the team president, appointed himself as the general manager. The team finally made the playoffs during the 1987-88 season going all the way to the Conference Finals.

By the early 1990s, Lamoriello began acquiring pieces of a future cup contender: defensemen Scott Stevens and Scott Niedermayer, forward Claude Lemieux, and goaltender Martin Brodeur. Jacques Lemaire came on board as coach before the 1993-94 season, and this was the beginning of New Jersey’s ascent to the top of the league.

New Jersey broke out in the 1995 Stanley Cup Playoffs, capturing its first Stanley Cup. However, the team underperformed in the subsequent seasons, and Lemaire resigned. The Devils also brought in new stars like Patrik Elias and Scott Gomez. The former holds many New Jersey Devils team stats and records.

Even in the middle of a coaching carousel, the Devils won their second Stanley Cup after the 1999-2000 season. And finally, in 2003, the team won their third and final Stanley Cup. It returned to the Stanley Cup Final in 2012 in a losing effort against the Kings.

With the franchise in decline, Lamoriello stepped down during the 2015 season. The team had a brief but fruitless resurgence in the 2017-18 season but this marked the only time they made the postseason after 2012.

Now with promising young talent like Jack Hughes, the Devils could be trending again, but they are still far from their Stanley Cup-winning days.
