Erik Haula can help this New Jersey Devils team a lot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Erik Haula has been a big part of some good playoff teams a lot in his NHL career. He has been a depth forward that made an impact almost everywhere he has gone and the Devils are no different. Now that it is playoff time, he is going to be able to make some big moves.

Haula can play center or wing which adds to his versatility in addition to the ability to play on any line. If they want him on a scoring line with Jack Hughes, he can handle it. If they want him in a checking role, he can do that very well too.

The best place for him is probably on the third line where he can do a little bit of everything. Having a guy like that will really make this team go once the playoffs begin.

Haula has had better offensive seasons than this first one with the New Jersey Devils but he still has the chance to score that one big playoff goal that gets his team to where they need to be. Expect the unexpected when it comes to Erik Haula in the postseason.
