NHL Trade Rumors: Centers the New Jersey Devils Could Acquire at the Deadline

There are just three days until the NHL trade deadline, and it’s crunch time for teams who need the pieces to push them to a Stanley Cup playoff run or a complete rebuild.

The New Jersey Devils have a couple of needs they could be looking to fulfill, and as the New York Post suggests, they might be searching for a center.

Travis Zajac, previously the Devils’ ironman, has been limited to just eight games this year while dealing with an Achilles’ tendon problem. He returned to the lineup in December after offseason surgery, but did not get far before his doctors encouraged him to stop skating. Although The Star-Ledger is reporting that Zajac is doing light skating and strengthening exercises, it’s unlikely he will make a significant contribution this year.

The Devils have Adam Henrique and Patrik Elias performing well at center, but the majority of their top scorers are wingers, suggesting that the Devils could benefit from picking up another center.

Here are some names that have been mentioned in the latest batch of rumors who could come to New Jersey.
