Shane Wright: 2022 NHL Draft Prospect Profile; Apparent Leader of the Class

Shane Wright. The expected first overall pick. | Photo by Joshua Bessex/NHLI via Shane Wright was projected to go first overall in 2022 for multiple years. Now that the NHL Draft is soon, he is still seen as the top guy - but not by a lot. Learn what makes Wright great and what the concerns are in this prospect profile. For the last several drafts, there has not been much of a legitimate question as to who would go first overall. Owen Power, Alexis Lafreniere, Jack Hughes, and Rasmus Dahlin were touted as #1 picks from the beginning of their draft years and ended up...

Everything seemed to kick off with Frank Seravalli adding Bratt to a trade target list last week: “To my knowledge, there have been no contract extension talks to this point for what will be an expensive deal. Add in Fitzgerald’s mandate to find ‘hard skill’ this summer, and well, it makes you wonder.” [Daily Faceoff] Then a few other tidbits: Team leader...

Topias Leinonen: 2022 NHL Draft Prospect Profile: A Huge Goalie Who Covers the Net Well

Photo by RvS.Media/Basile Barbey/ This may be a weak goalie draft, but that should not stop Tom Fitzgerald from continuing to deepen the goalie prospect pool. With the absolute disaster that was the 2021-22 New Jersey Devils’ goaltending, one would imagine Tom Fitzgerald is inclined to pick more goaltenders during this Draft. Currently, the only prospects the Devils have the rights to - but have not signed yet - are Cole Brady and Jakub Malek. Brady has put up a decent save percentage for Arizona State against ridiculous shot numbers (he had a GAA of 3.89 in 2021-22),...

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports We go north of the border for the first time today in our UFA preview, looking at two different Ilyas both of the Toronto Maple Leafs; would either be a good target for the New Jersey Devils? The two topics of today’s unrestricted free agency preview targets share a lot of similarities. Both players last played for the Toronto Maple Leafs; both players also share the same first name of Ilya. Both players also are Russian-born, were undrafted, and will both be 28 by the start of next season. The one major difference between them is the...

Andrew Copp would be a fantastic fit for the Devils, but he’ll likely be one of the most highly sought after free agents | Danny Wild-USA TODAY Sports With unrestricted free agency inching closer, we take a look at a pair of pending UFAs from the Rangers in Andrew Copp and Justin Braun.

Alexander Perevalov was born on April 16, 2004 in Mezhdurechensk, Russia. He is a right-handed shot who exclusively plays left wing. Like many Russian scoring wingers before him,...
