There are a lot of new and young faces in the Devils locker room this year at training camp and veteran Travis Zajac said he's really impressed with all of the young talent.

"It's great, you see the skill out there and put in some concepts that are going to make us a much tougher team to play against," said Zajac.

One player in particular that has stood out to Zajac and many others is first-overall pick Jack Hughes. Zajac said that the skill Hughes' brings to the team will help the team for years.

"Just the poise he plays with on the ice, everything he does, he's really smooth the way he handles the puck, the way he can make plays, so he's got great vision and he works hard so I think he's going to be a special player for us," said Zajac.

Mikhail Maltsev is another young talent on the Devils training camp roster and after scoring a highlight-reel goal last night,

"It was a great goal and he's going to be a really good player down the road. You see the size and skill he has. He's one of the guys who's really impressed me during camp. You see the young talent coming up, it's great for this team," said Zajac.
