NEWARK, N.J. -- The New Jersey Devils began the on-ice portion of training camp at AmeriHealth Pavilion at Prudential Center on Thursday with several new faces and a fresh outlook.
"It's always great to get back it at and feel the competitive spirit again," Devils captain Bryce Salvador told NHL.com.
Goalie Martin Brodeur agreed.
"I think change can be healthy and I'm looking forward to what the new additions will bring to our team," Brodeur said. "I'm looking forward to adjustments we made with our team and the way we're going to play. Most of us know the system, but it's not rocket science. [The new players] will figure it out."
Devils coach Peter DeBoer added some intrigue to the first day of practice, which featured three sessions, when he had newcomers and fellow Newfoundland natives Michael Ryder and Ryane Clowe working together on the same line as Adam Henrique.
