The New Jersey Devils are prepared to embark on a new season on Saturday afternoon when the club hosts the Colorado Avalanche for a 2PM tilt at Prudential Center. Here's everything you need to know if you'll be attending the start of a new era of Devils Hockey.
When the puck drops at 2PM on Saturday, there will be a handful of Devils making their debut in front of the hometown faithful. Nico Hischier, Will Butcher, Marcus Johansson, Drew Stafford, Mirco Mueller and more are all expected to be in the lineup for Jersey's Team.
