The National Hockey League is in talks with the money-losing New Jersey Devils to advance the team money so it can continue to operate through the season, The Post has learned.
Under the NHL plan, Devils controlling owner Jeffery Vanderbeek would continue to run the team while he pursues a long-term financing solution, sources said.
“We can presume if the advance has not happened, it is going to happen soon,” a source close to the team said.
The Devils, which need to meet payroll twice a month until the regular season ends April 7, are weighing trading team captain Zach Parise for draft picks.
Parise makes $6 million and his contract expires at the end of the year, a source said.
A Devils Arena Entertainment spokesman said, “We are not prepared to make any further comment.”
An NHL spokesman called a report that the league was considering funding the Devils “inaccurate,” but declined to elaborate.
Zach Parise talks too, also from Mark Everson of the New York Post.
