Kyle Palmieri is happy to be a New Jersey Devil.
Palmieri grew up a Rangers fan and while some of his close friends growing up still cheer for the Rangers, he is happy to be near home. "That's alright. I have a couple of friends who are still Rangers fans who are going to be gritting their teeth during those games," Palmieri told NJ Advance Media. "It's something I'm excited for. I grew up around that rivalry. I know how big it was and how intense the games are. But I guess I really won't have an idea until our first big game against them. I can't wait for it." Palmieri should provide some scoring for the Devils as he had 14 goals and 29 points in just 59 games last season. Jul 2 - 8:52 AM

GM Ray Shero was excited to acquire Kyle Palmieri from the Anaheim Ducks.

The trade was delayed a bit because Palmieri was vacationing in Ireland and could not be reached at the time. "He's at the right age, No. 1," Shero said. "He's an NHL player. He plays with speed. He's a strong kid. He can really shoot the puck. It's hard to find players like that. Anaheim's got a lot of depth up front, especially on the right side and [with] some other kids coming. So we're, hopefully, taking advantage of that." The Devils are in dire need of help on their top two lines so look for Palmieri to grab a spot there.

"There’s not much I can really say," DEvils GM Ray Shero told "We’ll have to wait until tomorrow for anything official. Put it that way."

Kyle Palmieri might end up playing on Friday after all.

Based on Thursday's practice lines, it looked like Palmieri was going to be a healthy scratch as he lost his spot on the third line in favor of Tomas Fleischmann.

That would be coming at the expense of Jiri Sekac, who previously appeared to be set to make his 2015 playoff debut.

Kyle Palmieri and Matt Beleskey each picked up their first points of the playoffs on Friday.

The duo were held off the scoresheet in the opening round of the playoffs but got off the schneid against the Flames when Palmieri set up Beleskey. It makes yourself feel a little better," Palmieri said. "Obviously sweeping Winnipeg was awesome from a team aspect. But Matty and I both knew we had a little more to give offensively in getting to the net. We struggled with it a little bit in the Winnipeg series. We had a couple of chances. Sometimes they go in and sometimes they don’t. But especially this time of the year, it feels nice to bear down and get on the scoresheet."
