NHL Rumors: Devils Forward Finished In New Jersey

Before the 2022 trade deadline passed, New Jersey Devils forward Pavel Zacha was a notable name in the rumor mill. Although he stayed in Jersey for the rest of the year, a trade is still likely to occur this summer, according to Frank Seravalli.

With the Devils have very strong depth down the middle, it would be understandable if they moved Zacha. New Jersey needs scoring wingers, and Zacha could be a solid piece of a trading package to land just that. Thus, if the Devils make a big move this offseason, Zacha will very likely be involved in it. 

Teams like the Montreal Canadiens and Vancouver Canucks have already been linked Zacha previously, so don't be surprised to see them re-enter the sweepstakes. Alas, we will have to wait and see where the 2015 sixth-overall pick ends up from here.
