5 Devils things you need to know today; Reid Boucher, Stefan Matteau returning?

They're dead, then their not. They’re dead, then they not. That’s been the outside perception of the Devils, whose playoff chances seemingly rose from the dead once again Friday night with their 2-1 win over Washington that Jaromir Jagr called the best of the season coupled with Columbus losing at home to Chicago. The updated Eastern Conference wild card standings has...

Devils send rookie winger Reid Boucher back to minors

Reid Boucher's 62 goals last season in the Ontario Hockey League didn’t translate into instant success in the NHL. The Devils gave the rookie winger chance after chance after chance to produce in his first NHL stint, but 23 games of opportunity, including four on the top line, led to just three goals and seven points. The Devils still are high on Boucher, but the 20-year...

Reid Between The Lines, Boucher Can Score

Reid Boucher (1 G, 4 SOG, +1) is a pure sniper in every sense of the word. Hockey word, that is. His shot is as quick as it is accurate and it’s bloody quick. Last year Boucher potted 62 goals in just 68 games, breaking Steven Stamkos’ club record for goals in a season with 60 back in 2011-2012. How’s that for a pedigree? Dude’s leaving broken Stamkos goal scoring records...

Todd Cordell: New Jersey Devils: Just How Good Is Reid Boucher?

You can follow Todd on Twitter @ToddCordell! When Reid Boucher was drafted in 2011, the expectations for him weren't overly high. He was selected by the New Jersey Devils in the 4th round (99th overall) and was labeled a bit of a high-risk, high-reward pick. If Boucher ever panned out properly, there was a chance he could be a top-6 forward. But that seemed unlikely. ...
