New Jersey's 2021 training camp officially came to a close Monday evening as the club set its 23-man roster and the NHL kicked off its regular-season slate of games Tuesday night. Now that the Devils have built the foundation for the season, it's time to work on the details ahead of the season opener Friday night against Chicago at Prudential Center.
The club hit the ice Wednesday afternoon at RWJ Barnabas Health Hockey House to do just that. Forward Tyce Thompson joined his teammates for the first time since suffering an undisclosed injury. The only player from the official 23-man roster absent from practice is goaltender Mackenzie Blackwood. He was rehabbing his heel, which he had surgery on in the summer, with team trainers.
