Patrick Maroon Now Property Of The New Jersey Devils

Newark, NJ - The New Jersey Devils today acquired forward Patrick Maroon from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for the club's third-round pick in the 2019 NHL Draft and the rights to forward prospect J.D. Dudek. The announcement was made by New Jersey Devils Executive Vice President/General Manager Ray Shero.

Maroon, 29, has 14 goals and 16 assists for 30 points in 57 games this season. His goal total ranked fourth on the Oilers and his point total ranked fifth. The 6-3, 225lb., St. Louis, MO, native is in his sixth full NHL season having played with Anaheim and Edmonton. Last season, he tallied career highs in points (42), and goals (27, third on the team). In 358 career NHL games played, he has scored 70 goals, 90 assists for 165 points and 438 penalty minutes. He was traded by Anaheim to Edmonton on Feb. 29, 2016, for Martin Gernat and a fourth-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft (Jack Kopacka).

Video- Patrick Maroon Suffers An Apparent Leg Injury

via Bruce McCurdy of the Edmonton Journal,

The outcome can immediately be forgotten — Vancouver and Edmonton remain tied with 0 points — with the major concern being the health or otherwise of Patrick Maroon. The burly left winger, one of the better Oilers in this sloppy affair, left the game with a leg injury midway through the third period after an awkward hit by Vancouver’s James Sheppard. Maroon’s status was unknown after the game, but it didn’t look good at all.

Patrick Maroon’s Turnaround

from Tal Pinchevsky of the New York Times,

Maroon’s is a unique hockey journey which shifted the day the Flyers told him to pack his bags.

“The organization made a decision to send him home,” said Greg Gilbert, who delivered that message to Maroon as the coach of Philadelphia’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms.

“He wasn’t committed to himself,” Gilbert said. “In Patrick’s case, I don’t really think he knew how to train and play at that level.”

At the time of his unceremonious exit, Maroon led the Phantoms with five goals in the team’s first nine games. He was emboldened the previous summer by his first overseas tournament, a gold medal performance at the 2010 I.I.H.F. InLine World Championship.

Playing alongside two of his oldest friends, Maroon scored seven goals and 14 points in six games at the in-line worlds. He even notched a goal and an assist in the gold medal game in Karlstad, Sweden, against the Czechs.

“It was the best time of my life,” Maroon said. “You got away from everything. You got away from all the stress and worries about other things. I went there to have fun and just enjoy my time with those guys and meet new people and enjoy Sweden.”

A Fine For “Turtling”?

Kerry Frase of TSN answers an email...

In the Ducks-Canucks game, Patrick Maroon was going to take a tripping call. He turned to Kassian and said "let's go" as Kassian had been encouraging him to fight for 3 games. Maroon then quickly threw his stick down with a 'fake"  gloves drop and then he put his hands over his ears and turned his back until he felt a punch, then he dropped the gloves and "drew" the even up call. Yes a good play on his part.....if you think all diving/embellishing is an acceptable play.     
But my question is why do the refs fall for that? And do they like being shown up when they see it on replay? Should he get fined by the NHL for embellishment?  

Turning to engage and invite an opponent to fight and then 'turtle' is definitely a form of embellishment that, in my opinion, is definitely worthy of a fine. A player that resorts to this in this type of unmanly behavior is doing so purely for the purpose of attempting to draw a penalty. A minor for unsportsmanlike conduct and/or misconduct penalty for "inciting" can also be imposed to a player that is guilty of this form of conduct (Rule 75.4 iii & v).
We shouldn't just focus our attention on Patrick Maroon here for his successful attempt to draw Zack Kassian into incurring a penalty. The game footage shows that Maroon turned and said something to Kassian, faced the Vancouver player and did drop his stick prior to using his gloves as ear-muffs. This was an absolute 'dumb' penalty for Zach Kassian to incur and negate a Canuck power play when Maroon was being whistled for tripping Henrik Sedin.

Video- Patrick Maroon Injured After Hit From Josh Gorges

Patrick Maroon needed assistance going off the ice after taking a hit to his left knee from Josh Gorges.

The Ducks say lower-body, will not return.

IMO, Gorges went too low with the hit.
