Devils prospect Steven Santini will be spending at least one more season at Boston College.
Santini was the team’s 42nd overall pick from the 2013 draft. The defenseman, a rising junior, had five points in 22 games in a season that saw him miss time because of a wrist injury. "Obviously, last year was kind of a disappointing season just in terms of my injury," Santini said. "I think it's good for me to work one more year towards my education. Another year of experience before I make the jump to pro hockey." Jul 19 - 10:10 PM

New Jersey selected defenseman Steven Santini with their first pick, 42nd overall, in the 2013 draft.

The Devils moved back from pick No. 39 in a trade with Phoenix when they drafted Santini and they scooped up the No. 73 pick in the exchange as well. "I'm really excited. Being a guy from New York, I'm from Westchester, it's kind of an unreal experience," he said. "I'm just very excited. I had a lot of friends and family here, so it's a great moment for all of us." He grew up as a fan of the Rangers, but his allegiance has changed now. This is how he describes his game: "I'm just a big, physical, strong defenseman. I don't put up a lot of points, but I'm very reliable. I can eat minutes, take a lot of ice time. I'm great in the shutdown role."
