by Lindy Ruff / Special to

Despite a little ruff cell reception (c'mon, we had to), we chatted with new Devils head coach Lindy Ruff and got to see what he's been up to during this time away, and got to know a bit more about where he's from and some of his favorite hobbies.

And yes, of course we asked whether he was "bag of milk" guy or not. He's from Canada, we have to ask. It's a requirement. We don't make the rules, but we do follow them.

That was defenseman Shakir Mukhamadullin, the player the Devils selected with the 20th overall pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft.  

"He's a bit of an unknown maybe to a lot of people, but not in the hockey world," Fitzgerald said. "This is where we had him."

"The Devils have been New Jersey's team for almost four decades. Since 1992, through three Stanley Cup Championships, the team's uniform colors, look and feel have remained consistently red, black and white. The adidas Reverse Retro ADIZERO Authentic jersey program created the opportunity for our organization to step back in time in a playful way, accentuating the Pine Barrens-inspired green that plays a significant role in our team history," said New Jersey Devils Senior Vice President of Marketing, Jillian Frechette. "In the coming months, we look forward to bringing the storied first decade of our franchise to life through storytelling, unique immersive experiences, and fan-centric promotions tied to this jersey and the games in which we will wear it."

DEVILS WEEKLY: Reverse Retro and More

Check out your weekly update on Devils news and coverage, including an interview with GM Tom Fitzgerald, a podcast appearance by Bobby Holik, and a look a tease of the Devils Reverse Retro jersey

by Chris Wescott TheChrisWescott /

Thanks for clicking Devils Weekly, a new series where we compile news and coverage from the last week in one place for you. Today, we're taking a sneak peek at the Adidas Reverse Retro jersey and checking in with Corey Crawford and Tom Fitzgerald.


Tom Fitzgerald was the subject of this week's Out of Office presented by PSEG. He discusses his new dog, Millie, as well as joining a running challenge and getting the interim tag removed this offseason.

"We didn't make that big of a deal of it because the interim tag didn't affect how I did my job. I've always had the attitude that I was the GM, and I was always doing that job. I don't want to say it was anti-climactic - we were home for dinner, which was great, and Kate Madigan drove up with her mom and they stayed for drinks. They brought balloons and they were attached to the gate by the pool for at least a week before deflating."

His family had traveled from their home in Newfoundland, Canada to be with their son for the monumental moment. But it was right back to work with his Quebec Major Junior Hockey team immediately after the dust had settled on the draft. Wearing an 'A' on his jersey, Mercer enters his fourth season in the CHL, where he's accumulated 157 points in 176 career games.

FEATURE: Corey Crawford Sees Bright Future Ahead for Devils

Devils goaltender Corey Crawford answers questions from fans in the Black and Red Banter series

by Amanda Stein amandacstein /

The winters get cold enough, for long enough, in Montreal, Canada where for months on-end an outdoor rink is where you'll find young boys and girls spending their free time out on hockey rinks. Braving the cold weather was just part of the fun, and it was on those outdoor rinks that many young Canadians have begun their journey to the highest ranks of the hockey world. 

Corey Crawford is no different.

"My brother would put me on [the outdoor rink] and take shots at my face with his buddies," Devils goaltender Corey Crawford recalled during the most recent Black and Red Banter series. "He would do that, and he did that for a while."
