Devils’ Future Gets Underwhelming Marks

The Hockey News released their future rankings and the Devils weren’t ranked all that strongly, coming in at 20th overall and receiving a B- grade. Here are some of the prospects they listed:

  • Stefan Matteau (64th overall prospect in hockey)
  • Jon Merrill
  • Alexander Urbom
  • Keith Kinkaid
  • Eric Gelinas
  • Reid Boucher
  • Damon Severson
  • Scott Wedgewood
  • Harri Pesonen
  • David Wolhberg

Reid Boucher is putting in serious work in the OHL, something we’ll talk about early next week and guys like Merrill and Matteau look like future cornerstones. The Devils have never really been an organization to draft the high-scoring flashy prospect, and seem to build more from the underrated group. What do you think of the rankings? Sound off below!
