PROSPECT REPORT: Hoelscher Ready for a Break-Out Year

Take a look at Mitchell Hoelscher in our weekly prospect report

by Peter Robinson / Special to NewJerseyDevils.com

The grin said it all. Well, the grin and the black eye. 

When Devils prospect Mitchell Hoelscher, a center with the Ontario Hockey League's Ottawa 67's, was asked to explain the dark circle around his left eye, he flashed a smile and offered a blunt explanation.

A puck? An errant stick? 

Nope.

"I took a couple of uppercuts," he said. 

During a recent game between the 67's and London Knights, a matchup that could be a preview of the OHL Final in the spring, things got a little chippy at the end of the game.

10 TAKEAWAYS: Two Weeks In

Amanda Stein gives her 10 Takeaways from the week, presented by Ticketmaster

by Amanda Stein amandacstein / NewJerseyDevils.com

NEWARK, NJ - There's no hiding the fact that the start to the Devils 2019-20 NHL season hasn't been an easy one. It's tough on consecutive nights for players to be asked and have to answer questions about the struggles right out of the gate and it's not exactly easy to be standing in there asking the questions either. I can be easy for anyone to snap. I will say the level of respect players and coaches have at this tough juncture has been appreciated, although not unexpected. 

As the Devils work their way through the difficult start to the season, here are my 10 Takeaways from the week, brought to you by Ticketmaster:

GAME STORY: Panthers 6, Devils 4

The Devils had a 4-1 lead but let it slip away as Florida rallied to score the next five and take the two points

by Chris Wescott TheChrisWescott / NewJerseyDevils.com

NEWARK, NJ - The Devils watched a 4-1 lead disappear as the Florida Panthers rallied to beat the home team 6-4. Following the disappointing result, New Jersey is now 0-4-2 to start the season.

Video: POST-GAME REPORT | Devils vs. Panthers

"If you're not confident it's going to turn around then the season is probably lost already. So no one's thinking this can't be turned around. It simply has to," said Devils goaltender Cory Schneider. "I think anybody in here as a professional and as a prideful player, we've got to do everything we can as an individual and then as a group to make sure that you're pointed in the right direction and are part of the solution not continuing to be part of the problem."

The Devils found themselves down 1-0 just 16 seconds into the first period. Jonathan Huberdeau potted the go-ahead foal, assisted by Evgenii Dadonov and Aleksander Barkov.

But then the home team got a spark, rattling off four unanswered goals.
