Devils Rumors: New Jersey Linked To Four Defensemen In Trade Market

The New Jersey Devils have been thrust into the trade market spotlight, actively pursuing solutions to address their recent defensive setbacks.

In the wake of injuries affecting key players like Jack Hughes and Jonas Siegenthaler, the team has been linked to several defensemen whose names have emerged in trade discussions.

According to reports from James Nichols, notable candidates on the Devils' radar include Chris Tanev, Noah Hanifin, Nick Seeler, and Ilya Lyubushkin.

Chris Tanev, a seasoned 14-year NHL veteran, stands out as a sought-after option for the Devils.

Renowned for his shutdown capabilities and extensive playoff experience, Tanev's arrival could provide the team with much-needed defensive stability.

While he holds a 10-team no-trade list, there's optimism that he may consider a move to New Jersey given their current circumstances.

Noah Hanifin, despite leaning towards a contract extension with the Calgary Flames, remains an intriguing possibility for the Devils.

His versatile two-way game and compatibility with the team's core make him an appealing long-term investment.

With a team-friendly cap hit, securing Hanifin's services would be a significant move for the Devils as they seek to shore up their defensive lineup and overcome the challenges posed by injuries.

So far this season, Lyubushkin has no goals, four assists, and a -5 plus/minus rating over 40 games played with the Anaheim Ducks.

Nick Seeler also has no goals, seven assists, a +14 plus/minus rating, and an impressive 108 blocked shots across 41 games played with the Philadelphia Flyers this season. Photo Credit: Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports
