The New Jersey Devils prepare for training camp by meeting with the media.

It’s been almost ten months since the New Jersey Devils last hit the ice. It’s also been that long since we’ve heard from most of these players. There has been no media availability for these players. In fact, in a Devils’ capacity, we’ve only really heard from Lindy Ruff and Tom Fitzgerald since the team made significant moves in the offseason.

That made it nice to hear from Devils players and coaches to start training camp. Just about every player has spoken over the first few days of camp. Some had a lot to say about the new system, the new players, and the new team philosophy. Other players had typical hockey answers. The former is where you find the real information.

There’s a lot to still figure out during training camp. The Devils don’t have a captain, and they’ve never started a season without one. Nico Hischier starts training camp on the sidelines after a lower-body injury during training. There are at least four open competitions for spots in the opening-night lineup. There’s a lot to still figure out with only two weeks before games actually count.

It’s the New Year, so some may have missed some of the big quotes from the beginning of training camp. It’s early, but fans are already getting an inside look at what this season could be. There’s a lot riding on the few stars currently on the team. These quotes show what could be coming for our favorite team over the next few months.

All of these quotes came from either friend of the Let’s Go Devils Podcast Corey Masisak of The Athletic, or from the New Jersey Devils Twitter account itself.
