from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

We here at Slap Shots would like to congratulate Mackenzie Blackwood for becoming the first fifth-grader to play in the NHL.

Because the Devils goaltender displayed the mentality of a 10-year-old, and not a very aware one at that, with a verified posted comment on P.K. Subban’s verified Instagram account on Thursday, in which Blackwood referred to the defenseman as, “SLEWBAN.”

He even added a little on-fire emoji to the comment on Subban’s post that pictured the postgame congrats following the Devils’ 3-0 victory over the Flyers on Wednesday.

Blackwood thinks it is funny that Subban has already kicked the feet out from under five opponents, and not been suspended for any of them? Hahaha. Sammy Blais suffered a season-ending torn ACL on one of those plays. Oh, hilarious. Would Blackwood invent a nickname for a player who injured Jack Hughes on a dirty play?

Defenders of the defenseman have insisted straight down the line that Subban’s transgressions do not fall under the definition of slew-footing, which the league insists with a straight face that it takes very seriously.

Now here is Blackwood anointing No. 76, “SLEWBAN.”

You won’t find the comment if you check Subban’s account now. To the Devils’ credit, we are told that once alerted to the posted comment, management immediately addressed the issue with Blackwood. The goaltender soon after deleted the comment.

The New Jersey Devils Introduce Their Black Sweater

NEWARK, NJ – (November 23, 2021) – The New Jersey Devils, today, announced the historic release of the organization’s first-ever third jersey.  Acknowledging the clamoring of fans who have been asking for a primary black jersey for years, the Devils answered with a black-inspired/red-shadowed design that weaves together Jersey pride, Devils history and the state’s professional hockey heritage. In collaboration with the New Jersey Devils, NHL and adidas, this sweater is reflective of 90 years of New Jersey hockey history, created by the Devils nearly 40-year legacy and has been guided by the Hall of Fame goaltender, Martin Brodeur.  The sweater is a bold step forward for the Devils brand, aligning with the momentum of a team primed to pivot to a future window of success.

“The organization has been playing with the same jersey for almost 40 years, and to be a part of bringing a third jersey for our fans to enjoy is going to leave a great mark,” said Martin Brodeur, New Jersey Devils Legend. “The new sweater is inspired by a history of hockey in the Garden State that fans may not be familiar with, and layered with design elements of Devils championship success. This is a jersey our alumni are envious of that they wished they could have played in it back in their day. People throughout the state and country know us as “Jersey,” this is our place, our home and this jersey signifies that.”

A Motivated Tomas Tatar

from Jackie Spiegel of the Sporting News,

On Friday night at the Prudential Center, Tomas Tatar will play in his first regular-season game for his new club, the Devils. The last time he played in a meaningful game was 141 days ago, which means it's been almost four months since he laced up the skates and hit the ice in the Canadiens' fifth game of the 2021 Stanley Cup playoffs first-round series against the Maple Leafs.

But didn't Montreal play into July? Yes, but Tatar spent it watching from the stands.

"Out of nowhere, to be honest, the coaches made this decision which I respected," he said during media day with his new club. Tatar played the first five games against Toronto and then sat the rest of the way. "We had a hell of a run in the playoffs. Obviously, you're upset, you wanted to play and I think I could help the team, especially in the final, but I had to respect the decision."

The decision was, well, a head-scratcher. Then-interim coach Dominique Ducharme made a guy who had led the team in scoring over the course of the three seasons he was there (149 points in 198 games) a healthy scratch. How good was Tatar for Le Bleu-Blanc-Rouge? He had 21 points more than the second guy, defenseman Jeff Petry, and of his 149 points — which he collected at a tear of 0.75 per game —119 were at even strength.

"He's been a proven top-three or four scorer on the teams he's been on. He's great at getting open. He's great at finding the people that are open. He knows where to be," Devils coach Lindy Ruff said.
