NewJerseyDevils.com

Newark, NJ – The New Jersey Devils today acquired forward Brian O'Neill from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for a conditional seventh-round selection in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. In the event that New Jersey signs O'Neill to a new NHL Standard Player's Contract for the 2016-17 season, New Jersey will transfer its own seventh-round pick in 2017 to Los Angeles. The announcement was made by Devils' Executive Vice President/General Manager Ray Shero.

O'Neill, 27, has spent the past three-plus seasons with Manchester (AHL). The 5-9, 175-lb. forward appeared in 192 games with the Monarchs from 2012 through 2015, recording 52 goals and 92 assists for 144 points and 116 penalty minutes. In 2014-15, O'Neill was named the AHL's Most Valuable Player, leading the league in points (80), assists (58) and plus/minus (+30, tie). He then finished third in the AHL with 10g-10a-20pts and 12 penalty minutes in 19 post-season games and helped lead the Monarchs to the 2015 Calder Cup Championship. O'Neill was also named to the league's Second All-Star Team and to the Eastern Conference roster for the All-Star Game last season.

Decade of Crosby-Ovechkin filled with highlights

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 12:00 PM / Sunday Long Read

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

In this special weekday edition of the Sunday Long Read to kick off the 2015-16 season, NHL.com looks at the rivalry that has helped define the League for the past decade: Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals

Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin were in the spotlight, a place they have occupied individually throughout their hockey careers. This time, however, it was different. This time, they were sharing the attention, going head-to-head under the glare of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

This was a defining moment.

Weekes: Four goalies I wish I played against

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 10:00 AM / Game Savers

Kevin Weekes - NHL Network Analyst

NHL Network analyst Kevin Weekes, in conjunction with the new Canada Post goaltender stamp series, provides his insight into the position he played for 11 seasons in the League.

This week, Weekes discusses the goalies he wish he had an opportunity to play against.

I was fortunate that I got to play against a lot of my heroes and a lot of the guys I idolized growing up.

Dominik Hasek, Martin Brodeur, Patrick Roy, Ed Belfour, Curtis Joseph and Roberto Luongo were a few of those players. I even had a chance to be teammates with Luongo and Brodeur.

I got to play in an era with some of the greats. However, there are many goalies I didn't get to face. Whether it was their style, their ability to come up clutch in the big game or their impact on the game, there are four goalies I wish I could have played against.

Canadiens' Price preseason pick to win Vezina

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 3:00 AM / Trophy Tracker

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price is coming off a Hart Trophy season and has been described as a living how-to DVD for the position, so not putting him at the top of preseason predictions for another Vezina Trophy would be overthinking things.

Not only did Price lead the NHL in save percentage (.933), goals-against average (1.96) and wins (44) last season, but according to war-on-ice.com, he was at or near the top in even-strength save percentage (.943) and adjusted save percentage (.939), which weighs the quality of shots based on distance from the net.

The fact all were career bests suggests a correction is possible, and Price could take a step back this season, but watching how subtle tweaks under goaltending coach Stephane Waite have allowed him to improve the past two seasons, it seems just as possible Price could become the first goalie since Martin Brodeur of the New Jersey Devils in 2007 and 2008 to win consecutive Vezina Trophies.

Five Questions: Stars' Ruff talks Benn, expectations

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 3:00 AM / Five Questions With…

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NHL.com's Q&A feature called "Five Questions With …" runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff:

Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff knows the potential of his new No. 1 line featuring Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin and Patrick Sharp. What he doesn't know is the type of chemistry that line can have, and how quickly it can come together.

Ruff didn't learn nearly enough in the preseason because Benn was limited to two games with the Stars being cautious about his recovery from multiple hip surgeries he had during the offseason.

Deep rookie class more than just McDavid, Eichel

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 3:00 AM / 2015-2016 Season Preview

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NHL.com continues its preview of the 2015-16 season, which begins Wednesday.

The 2015-16 NHL rookie class could wind up being one of the best in recent memory.

Heading the pack are Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid and Buffalo Sabres center Jack Eichel. The 18-year-olds forever will be linked after they were chosen first and second, respectively, in the 2015 NHL Draft, and each has been projected by scouts as a generational talent. They should be able to contribute immediately, and barring injury are expected to be in the running for the Calder Trophy as NHL rookie of the year.

Sixteen familiar faces in new places for 2015-16

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 3:00 AM / 2015 Molson Canadian NHL Face-Off

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NHL.com continues its preview of the 2015-16 season, which begins Wednesday.

Peter Laviolette and Barry Trotz are linked now and forever because the former replaced the latter as the Nashville Predators coach last season. What happened benefitted the Predators and Trotz's new team, the Washington Capitals. Laviolette, the second coach in Predators history after Trotz's 15 seasons there, brought the Predators to the Stanley Cup Playoffs with 104 points. Trotz guided the Capitals to 101 points and a playoff spot.

Neither the Predators nor the Capitals made the playoffs in the previous season. If they had, Trotz and Laviolette likely wouldn't have their link. Instead, they made immediate impacts in their new places last season.

Sharks name Pavelski captain; Thornton alternate

Monday, 10.05.2015 / 7:23 PM / News

Sean McCullen - NHL.com Staff Writer

The San Jose Sharks named forward Joe Pavelski the ninth captain in their history Monday.

"Obviously, it's a huge honor. I'm excited to have an opportunity like this," Pavelski told the Sharks radio network. "It means a lot, but it really can't change anything about the player I am or what my game is going to be like. It's got to keep put the work in, try to get better every day, and, you know, perform. So, it's exciting."

San Jose did not have a captain last season, when it missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2002-03.
