With the long grind of the preseason finally over, the New Jersey Devils are ready to start a brand new season. This is the first season in a long time that even the average fan expects them to do very well. No longer are we a bottom feeder or even the maybe playoff team from last season, now we are a legitimate contender to go for a division title and on a deep playoff run. All that being said let us take a look at the team and some predictions for points.

Jack Hughes
Goals: 48 Assists: 60 Points: 108

Jack Hughes hit that superstar level last season and finished 12th in the entire NHL and came so close to being the first Devils player to hit that 100-point mark. This season he will take another small step forward with the addition of Tyler Toffoli on his side. Get ready for another Devils record.

Jesper Bratt
G: 35 A: 48 PTS: 83

Jesper Bratt has gotten better every year, developing a more shooting-based mentality, especially on the powerplay. He saw his goal totals go up last season yet again, and we believe that will continue. With this team’s powerhouse offense, Bratt will put up a career year in every metric and hit the point-per-game mark at the end of the season.

Tyler Toffoli
G: 30 A: 38 PTS: 68

Tyler Toffoli had a career season on a Flames team that was having nothing but bad seasons all around other than him. He hit 30 goals for the first time since 2015. When coming to a new team, chemistry is a big thing to look for. Hearing Hughes and Bratt talk about him and watching them operate in the preseason, it looks like they are a unit that has worked together for years. Matching his last year’s numbers might be hard due to the possibility of limited powerplay time, but he will bring a lot to this team and should be in line for another great season.
