For nearly a month, the Devils players have been engulfed in hockey. They first reported to New Jersey Devils training camp on Sept. 9 and now they are two days away from the beginning of the 2013-14 season.
Mike Sislo, Rod Pelley and Stefan Matteau have been paired together and are looking to cause trouble for opposing defensemen.
Of the nine defensemen in Albany, not one is shorter than six foot. Seth Helgeson, Corbin McPherson and Harry Young are 6′ 5″ and Eric Gelinas, Raman Habarenka and Jon Merrill are 6′ 4″. Round out the group are Dan Kelly and Reece Scarlett at 6′ 1″ and Brandon Burlon at 6′ 0″.
With less than a week remaining before the start of the regular season, Scott Timmins joined his new team on the ice Tuesday.
The Devils returned to the ice Friday after a fast-paced contest at Hartford the night before.

The New Jersey’s first on-ice training camp session took part in two practices Tuesday at Newark’s AmeriHealth Pavilion.
