NEWARK, NJ - Adam Larsson has a lot of good memories of his time with the Devils organization. The Oilers defenceman played in New Jersey from the 2011-12 season until the end of 2015-16. He was acquired by the Oil in a trade on June 29, 2016.
"It was a young group, a lot of good memories," said Larsson. "My first year we went to the Cup Final, so that was special. It is a little closer to home too. I had a lot of guests when I was living here, compared to Edmonton. That part was good, but I like where I'm at now."
He returns to face his former club once again, and it's always a nice thing to see familiar faces.
"It's always special (to play them), especially when you're coming back to the rink you played at for five years," said Larsson. "Obviously, the first time was going to be more special. This is another game for me."
In the first meeting between these two teams this season, Larsson was a dominant physical presence, recording 13 hits in a 6-3 win in Edmonton on November 3. He also had an assist and played 23:07 in that game.
The two teams meet tomorrow evening at the Prudential Center.
