Zetterlund Wants More | PROSPECT WATCH

The Devils forward prospect is hungry for more games in the NHL after getting a brief taste

by Peter Robinson / Special to NewJerseyDevils.com

Like a traveller who first gets a taste of what it's like collecting stamps in his passport, Fabian Zetterlund wants more.

The 22-year-old Utica Comets forward just returned to the American Hockey League after making his NHL debut.

"When I spoke with (Devils general manager) Tom Fitzgerald, he told me I should be proud of my first callup (and) I thought I played well," he said. "The (goal) is to make sure I stay there next time."

Zetterlund suited up three times for the Devils and spent another game as a healthy scratch as the Devils started returning regulars to the lineup and Nathan Bastian was re-acquired via the waiver wire. The Swede didn't exactly look at it this way, but he nearly had his first NHL goal on one of his first shifts in a Devils uniform against the Florida Panthers.

Devils Pleased Bratt Producing Consistently | FEATURE

An elite skater already, Bratt is beginning to show he's got the finish and the drive to be a consistent force in the NHL

by Chris Wescott TheChrisWescott / NewJerseyDevils.com

Jesper Bratt is just 23 years old.

That sentence seems off, but it's accurate.

It seems off because it feels like Bratt has been in the League a long time. He's already played 251 games, compiling 50 goals and 98 assists along the way.

Now, fellow forward Pavel Zacha was quick to correct and note it's not just Bratt but the whole roster that is filled with players in similar situations. The Devils are led by young players who bring a wealth of NHL experience to the table so early in their NHL careers.

Of late, the young Bratt is providing a glimpse into what his ceiling might be at this level. He's streaking right now with seven points in his last five games and he has at least a point in nine of his last 10 outings.

Ruff Sends Message with Tough Practice | BLOG

The Devils skated hard for well over an hour on Wednesday at practice

by Chris Wescott TheChrisWescott / NewJerseyDevils.com

3-on-1 rushes? 2-on-2 battles? Power play? Penalty kill? The shootout?

You name it, the Devils probably worked on it on Wednesday at practice. It was a fast-paced, physically exhausting skate following last night's 5-2 disappointing effort against San Jose. Just when you thought practice would traditionally have ended, considering the team's travel schedule, Ruff signaled for another drill.

What's that famous line from the movie Dark Knight?

"It's about sending a message."

On Wednesday, Head Coach Lindy Ruff had a message he wanted to convey. 

"Part of that was trying to re-establish [the details in our game] and part of that was the message that last night wasn't good enough," said Ruff. "And if that's what we're going to get, we'll practice harder. Until we do get it."

It does not appear as though today was a one-off for the Devils. If they get more performances like Tuesday night, Ruff seems inclined to repeat today's itinerary.

"I told the team this morning, if we played the way we did last night, we're going to practice even harder the next day," said Ruff. "If we're determined, and we play the game the right way, and we're getting the results, the practice time will go down. But all I had to do was watch the first five minutes of last night's game to know that wasn't even close to good enough. We were pretending."

Video: Pavel Zacha | PRACTICE RAW 12.1.21

The Devils hit the ice for practice Wednesday afternoon ahead of a flight to Minnesota for back-to-back games against the Wild and Winnipeg.

The club practiced for well over an hour as Head Coach Lindy Ruff worked the team on a variety of drills and the team ended practice focused on special teams.

Tweet from @TheChrisWescott: Despite heading into a road back-to-back, the Devils are putting in a ton of work here at practice. We're pushing an hour with very little breaks between drills, and I love the small-ice 2-on-2 drill happening now.

Tweet from @samikasan: #NJDevils lines:Hughes - Hischier - ZachaJohnsson - Mercer - BrattKuokkanen - Sharangovich - TatarVesey - McLeod - BastianThose were initial rushes. The bottom two lines also had Geertsen and Boqvist jumped in on occasion.

Stay tuned for updates, blogs, interviews, stories and videos from today's practice.
