It was quite the night for the New Jersey Devils as the latest piece of the puzzle has been added to the roster. The Devils franchise took a giant step forward after using their first round, first overall selection to kick off the 2019 NHL Draft!
1. Welcome to New Jersey, Jack! After weeks of speculation on which way the New Jersey Devils management would go, it's Jack Hughes who is the newest addition to the Devils family.
"I've been waiting for this moment all my life but now this is a new chapter for me," Hughes said after being drafted.

2. Surprise! It wasn't Ray Shero or Director of Amateur Scouting Paul Castron making the pick for New Jersey. It was Devils great and Hall of Famer Martin Brodeur who had the pleasure of announcing the Hughes pick to the packed house in Vancouver. Brodeur was drafted himself in 1990 in Vancouver, right next door to Rogers Arena at BC Place.
