by Brian Born @BrianBorn / newjerseydevils.com

After wrapping up his second year in New Jersey, defenseman John Moore seems to be enjoying his hockey home with the Devils. Throughout his young NHL career, Moore has spent time bouncing around the league, including short stints with the Columbus Blue Jackets, New York Rangers and Arizona Coyotes. In the summer of 2015, Devils GM Ray Shero inked Moore to a three-year, $5 million contract. Since given that opportunity, John Moore has been progressing each season and has been scoring consistent points from the blue line.

John Moore set a career-high during his first season in Jersey, totaling 19pts (4g-15a) in 73 games played. Moore entered the 2016-17 aiming to add more offensively for the Devils, and accomplished just that, racking up a new career-high with 12 goals (team-leader among defensemen). Seven of Moore's 12 goals came between Feb. 27 and April 9.
Moore remains a focused and valuable member of the Devils defensive core and trusts that New Jersey is building the right way. "This is an opportunity for everyone to prove their worth and I certainly want to be here. I want to be a part of this. I really believe in John [Hynes] and Ray [Shero] and everything that's going on here."

Check out our top five highlights of Adam Henrique goals during the 2016-17 season

by Brian Born @BrianBorn / newjerseydevils.com

Over the past six years, Adam Henrique has proven to be one of the Devils foundational players due to his ability to be an efficient two-way player. Henrique's versatility skating even-strength and on the power play/penalty kill is considered to be one of the 26-year-olds greatest assets. This versatility has helped him score 20 or more goals in three of the previous four season. Henrique, who is under contract through the 2018-19 season is focused on being a part of the solution in New Jersey and is eager to get the Devils back on the right track in 2017-18.

Ranking the Top Five Saves by Cory Schneider

Check out our top five highlights of Cory Schneider's saves during the 2016-17 season

by Brian Born @BrianBorn / newjerseydevils.com

It's no secret that throughout the Devils' history, their teams have been built around elite goaltending. When the Devils acquired Cory Schneider during the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, a strong last line of defense was a certainty for the foreseeable future. After spending four years with the club, Schneider holds a .919 save-percentage and 2.32 GAA, while also racking up 5,946 saves and 14 shutouts in 232 games played.

After being the Devils NHL All-Star Game representative during the 2015-16 season, Cory Schneider entered the 2016-17 season with a revamped defense. Over the course of the season, New Jersey's blueliners would consist of seven new faces, including Ben Lovejoy, Kyle Quincey, Steve Santini, Yohann Auvitu, Dalton Prout, Karl Stollery and Michael Kapla. Although these players had only spent one season (228 combined games played) with Schneids as their netminder, it didn't take long for them to recognize that he is a top NHL talent.

Tweet from @NJDevils: Lovejoy on the play of Schneider this week: "Cory's our best player. He's our superstar. He's the guy we rely on." #NJDvsCAR

Got Picks? Devils Currently Hold Eleven in 2017 NHL Draft

Ray Shero's Wheeling and Dealing has New Jersey Setup for Future

by Brian Born @BrianBorn / newjerseydevils.com

Since his arrival in May of 2015, General Manager Ray Shero has been steadfast in his approach to replenish the Devils prospect pool and acquire as many assets as possible. Shero's ability to find veteran players in free agency and sign them to affordable deals have made them valuable trade pieces for the Devils. Over the past two seasons, New Jersey has acquired six picks for players under their contract. The Devils have potential to be serious buyers leading up the expansion draft as teams around the league attempt to move contracts and players that they fear of losing for no compensation. Stockpiling eleven draft picks in 2017 and entering the offseason with cap space flexibility proves that New Jersey has the framework in place to make moves. When speaking to the media during his end of the season press conference, Shero hinted at an active offseason and his unwillingness to use all eleven draft picks. 

"I wouldn't be surprised if we did, but I will be trying not to, if you know what I mean."- Ray Shero

Check out the five transactions Ray Shero completed to build up trade ammunition during the 2017 NHL offseason.
