Team(s) Interested: New Jersey Devils-  Mark Everson of the New York Post reports a recent clavicle injury to Jacob Josefson means Devils GM Lou Lamoriello could be looking for another center man. On October 4th, Lamoriello sent grinder David Steckel to Toronto, who is big on the PK and great in the faceoff dot. Travis Zajac is currently out with an injury, leaving Elias, Sykora, Henrique and Mills up the middle. Before he signed in the AHL, John Madden would have been a good player to bring back on the bottom 2 lines, as he brings a good physical presence and can win you almost every faceoff. They have other options, like seeking a center man through a trade, but since they have some in the AHL capable of playing on the fourth line, it may not be a huge priority to make a deal for one.


About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
