The New Jersey Devils have gone a long way in adding significant star power to their roster early in the offseason, pulling off a blockbuster trade for blue-liner P.K. Subban and drafting American phenom Jack Hughes first overall.
New Jersey’s moves have impressed star forward Taylor Hall, who can’t wait to get going with his new teammates.
“As a player in the offseason, that’s what you want to see,” Hall said, per TSN. “It’s exciting. We’re going to have more than a couple new faces next year. Just injecting some new blood in the team is going to be really good.”
Hall’s 2018-19 season was tarnished by injuries – a disappointing follow-up to his Hart Trophy-winning campaign the year prior, when he carried the Devils to a playoff berth.
With Subban and Hughes now available to help carry the former MVP’s load, Hall sees a turnaround for his team on the horizon.
