BLOG: Hall Named 15th on List of Top Wingers

The NHL Network is counting down the top positional players in the league and Hall ranks high among wingers

by Chris Wescott TheChrisWescott / NewJerseyDevils.com

NHL Network unveiled their list of Top 20 Wingers in the league over the weekend and one Devils forward sits 15th on the big board.

The 27-year-old left-winger is coming off an injury-shortened 2018-19, in which he played only 33 games, recording 37 points (11-26-37).

In 2017-18 he won the Hart Trophy after setting career highs in goals (39), assists (54), and points (93).

"When he's in the lineup, he's contributing, he's getting points," said NHL Network Analyst Mike Rupp. "Look for him to have another bounce-back year this year and probably be higher on the list next year."

BLOG: Shero on Gusev

Ray Shero gives a quick quote on Nikita Gusev following the trade with Vegas

by Chris Wescott TheChrisWescott / NewJerseyDevils.com

The New Jersey Devils are in the midst of a transformative offseason. They won the NHL Draft Lottery and used the first-overall selection on potential franchise-changing player Jack Hughes. They traded for Norris Trophy-winning defenseman P.K. Subban. The team even added proven scorer and veteran presence Wayne Simmonds in free agency.

On Monday, the club added another possible impact player in Nikita Gusev. A dynamic, offensive force in the KHL, Gusev brings with him a lot of talent and potential to the Devils.

"Nikita is a winger who adds another offensive dimension to our hockey club with his outstanding instincts, vision and skill level," said General Manager Ray Shero.

The Devils acquired Gusev from Vegas, in exchange for a third-round pick in 2020 and a second-round pick in 2021. The two sides have agreed to terms on a two-year deal with an AAV of $4.5 million.
