Jesper Boqvist has made the opening night roster. The rookie forward will be moving in with long-time friend and Devils teammate Jesper Bratt.
Bratt is excited about what a skilled player like Boqvist can bring to the group.
"I think he played with good speed," Bratt said of Boqvist's pre-season. "I mean, he's just a skilled player, he sees the game really well, and I think those are kind of the things that gave him the roster spot on the team. I think he's going to be a big help for us."
Bratt has some advice for his new roommate.
"I think he's just got to try to enjoy it," Bratt said. "I mean, it's a lot of fun. The games are the [most fun] games I've ever played. So, just try to get into a life as an NHL player. [Learn] how to prepare yourself for practices and games and stuff like that, and [I will] try to be there for him if he had any questions. Otherwise, I think he's gonna have to figure it out by himself."
