New Jersey Devils 2008-09 Fantasy Hockey Preview

Adam GreuelSenior Analyst IOctober 8, 2008

We are now two days away from the 2008-09 NHL season, and my hockey-crazed brother and I have begun work on our own fantasy hockey magazine, predicting the stats for every player on the starting roster of an NHL team.

We hope we can accurately predict most players' statistics and we hope to help you with your fantasy hockey teams. A new article will be posted every couple of days at the most, and some teams will come even sooner. We will be doing this in alphabetical order.

I realize I have fallen a little behind on these due to my schedule, but the plan is to get a lot done during the four-day weekend I have this week.  Hopefully I won't be finished too late into the season.

Fantasy Stud: Zach Parise-

This 24 year old left winger is the franchise player in New Jersey and will be good for years to come.

Watch out for: Travis Zajac-

Couldn’t avoid the sophomore slump, he may not get to big of a chance to redeem himself this season.
