Ilya Kovalchuk has signed with SKA St. Petersburg. DOES HE HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO COME BACK AFTER HIS RETIREMENT?! [Fire and Ice] [Star-Ledger]

The Devils' prospect camp is underway. [Fire and Ice] [Star-Ledger] [NHL Video]

Jon Merrill and Eric Gelinas are looking forward to getting a shot at the NHL this season. [Fire and Ice]

Lists are fun. Backhand Shelf ranked the 30 NHL teams in terms of desirability for UFAs. The Devils were ranked at 29. What? Heh. [Backhand Shelf]

TODAY AT 4 P.M.: Head to the NHL Store in Manhattan to experience NHL ‘14 for yourself. You can play against one of the game's producers and get a chance to pick up some giveaways, including a Brodeur-signed copy of the game and a signed Brodeur jersey. [Star-Ledger]
