NHL Draft 2013: Potent Offensive Prospects the New Jersey Devils Must Target

The NHL Draft will be held in New Jersey for the first time ever when the Prudential Center hosts the league's top prospects on June 30th.

After finishing 19-19-10 with 48 points this past season, the New Jersey Devils will hold the ninth overall pick in this year's draft. It will be the second time in three years that New Jersey holds a pick in the top 10.

The Devils took forward Stefan Matteau with the 29th overall pick last year and the rookie went on to appear in 17 games for New Jersey before being sent back to his junior team. The 19-year-old scored one goal and recorded two assists in his time at the NHL level.

With a lack of offensive prospects in the system, it is likely that the Devils will use their pick on a forward when they go on the board. There are a number of weapons available in this year's draft class, but three players stick out specifically that would make a great match for New Jersey.
