The New Jersey Devils could use a great defenseman this off-season

The New Jersey Devils relied heavily on rookie defensemen this season. Kevin Bahl is a tad bit more experienced but he is still young and he played a lot. Luke Hughes and Simon Nemec were true rookies and were the top two guys on the team by the end of the season.

Dougie Hamilton got hurt in November and didn't return. He will be back for next season but the Devils surely need insurance around those guys, John Marino, and Jonas Siegenthaler. One player that they can consider is Boston Bruins free-agent Matt Grzelcyk. He is a very good defensive defenseman that any team in the league would want.

If you want offense, Grzelcyk is not your guy. He had two goals and nine assists for 11 points in 2023-24. H,owever, the Devils have Hughes, Nemec, and Hamilton for offense from the back end. Defending was their problem and a guy like Matt Grzelcyk would be a big-time help.

The Devils won't add all three but they are all worthy of consideration and fill a hole. The Bruins have been a great team for a long time and these guys have played a role in that.
