Scott Stevens will not be part of the New Jersey Devils' coaching staff.
That's not too surprising as the duties he likely would have assumed, namely running the team's defense and penalty kill, have been filled by Alain Nasreddine. Stevens served as a co-coach on the Devils last season, but he lost the head coaching gig to John Hynes. He expressed an interest in staying on as an assistant, but it looks like that won't happen either. He still might remain part of the organization in some other capacity.

After missing out on the New Jersey Devils' head coaching gig, Scott Stevens is hoping to stay with the organization as an assistant coach.

"I haven't looked elsewhere," Stevens said. "The Devils are my first choice, no question about that." Stevens served as the team's co-coach along with Adam Oates for half of the 2014-15 campaign. New bench boss John Hynes didn't rule out the possibility of Stevens or Oates staying on board.

Lou Lamoriello being sued for $2.39 million in U.S. District court by former president of Devils Arena Entertainment, Richard Krezwick.

The suit seems rather straight forward and zany at the same time. Lamoriello was peeved that former Devils owner Jeff Vanderbeek hired Krezwick to handle the team’s business operations in 2009, relegating Lamoriello to merely the hockey side of operations. This resulted in the long time Devils executive to develop an "acrimonious" attitude towards Krezwick. The zany part is upon Krezwick and others' firing, Lamoriello positioned himself by the exit "to laugh as they passed by, as to take credit for their firing," per the lawsuit. Krezwick is seeking $2.39M from Lamoriello for "Lamoriello’s alleged interference in his prospective contract as well as an order restraining Lamoriello from "impugning Krezwick’s professional reputation and interfering in present and prospective contractual relationships."

In a strange development, the New Jersey Devils will essentially employ Scott Stevens and Adam Oates as "co-coaches" through the 2014-15 season.

Beyond that, there are no guarantees (and Devils GM Lou Lamoriello is known for unusual coaching decisions, in general). It's difficult to tell what kind of impact this situation will have on the broader fantasy picture in New Jersey, although Oates could conceivably given the Devils' PP unit a boost.

Scott Stevens will serve as a member of the New Jersey coaching staff next season.

However, he will not be behind the bench and likely will not travel with the team. "None of that has been talked about," general manager Lou Lamoriello said.

Scott Stevens has retired.

The 41 year-old had 196 goals, 908 points and 2,785 PIM in 1,635 games with Washington, St. Louis and New Jersey. He also had 26 goals and 118 points in 233 playoff games and was named the Conn Smythe trophy winner in 2000, as the MVP in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Stevens played 22 seasons and more games than any other defenceman in NHL history and is a sure fire hall-of-famer. We wish him well.

Martin Brodeur believes that defenseman Scott Stevens is set to retire.

''It's my gut feeling,'' Brodeur said last night. ''I didn't get in contact with him at all in the off-season, and for him to miss that much time and keep saying that he doesn't know yet, doesn't know yet, well that doesn't sound too good. The 41-year-old Stevens has not played a hockey game in anger since January 2004 when he was diagnosed with post concussion syndrome.

The New York Post is reporting that sources close to Scott Stevens say Stevens is leaning towards returning to the Devils this season after recovering from post-concussion syndrome.

Stevens hasn't played since early January, 2004, although he was cleared by doctors to play last November. The 41-year-old defenseman would be a welcome addition to the Devil defense although fantasy-wise, Stevens' value is now limited. If signed, Stevens puts a further strain on New Jersey's $39 million salary cap which is already over $44 million.

There has still been no decision from Scott Stevens if he will retire this year.

Stevens has been cleared by doctors to play after suffering a concussion 20 months ago. The 41-year-old defenseman has to decide if he wants to play another year. If not, the Devils defense would be Rafalski, Paul Martin, Malakhov, Matvichuk, Dan McGillis, Colin White and Sean Brown.

The Devils are being patient waiting for captain Scott Stevens to decide if he wants to continue his NHL career.

Stevens is contemplating retirement after missing the end of the 2003-04 season because of his latest concussion. Should Stevens return, the Devils would have severe cap problems that would require dealing some of their higher-priced players. Look for Viktor Kozlov to be dealt before October 1st.

Scott Stevens has fully recovered from post-concussion syndrome and is deciding if he wants to return for one more hockey season.

The 41-year-old rearguard last played on January 7, 2004 and will have some catching up to do if he is to skate again for the Devils. Of course, we would never count the competetive Stevens out.

Scott Stevens has reported that is healthy and ready to play this season.

Stevens did not suit up after suffering a concussion on January 7, finishing with 3 goals and 12 points in 38 games with New Jersey. He apparently has been symptom-free all summer and is itching to get back playing. The 40 year-old veteran is still a solid NHL defenceman if healthy, but fantasy-wise he should not be on most if not all teams.
