Jon Merrill has undergone successful shoulder surgery

Merrill didn't play past March 19 due to the injury. He's expected to need another four months to recover so he should be ready for the regular season, but you should probably temper expectations for him as this could limit his ability to get ready for 2016-17 over the summer and training camp. Additionally, any setback in his recovery could end up eating into the campaign.

Cory Schneider had a successful operation to repair a core muscle injury.

Schneider is expected to need six weeks to recover, so this shouldn't have an impact on his 2016-17 campaign. He had a 2.15 GAA and .924 save percentage in 58 starts this season.

Patrik Elias has undergone successful knee surgery.

Elias was plagued by knee problems in 2015-16 and was limited to 18 games as a result. He's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and it's not clear if the 40-year-old forward will continue his career into 2016-17.

New Jersey would like to ink Kyle Palmieri to a long-term contract this summer.

Palmieri is set to become a restricted free agent this summer after completing a three-year, $4.4 million deal. He took a major leap forward in 2015-16 with 30 goals and 57 points in 82 contests, which will likely result in him getting a significant raise. "I look forward to signing him to a longer term contract, if that's possible, and if that's not possible he has arbitration rights," Devils GM Ray Shero said. "We're going to get a contract one way or another."

Cory Schneider has been nominated for the King Clancy Award.

The King Clancy Award recognizes individuals who display on and off-ice leadership qualities and make humanitarian contributions. Schneider has now been nominated for this award for three consecutive years. Schneider started a new charitable program for the 2015-16 campaign called "Cory's Keepers," which brought 20 different veteran and youth groups to Devils contests. That in addition to his other charitable work, which includes volunteering with the Liberty Humane Society Shelter and raising money for ALS.

Miles Wood will join Team USA in Russia for this summer's World Hockey Championship.

This will be Wood's second taste of international hockey, as he played for the Americans in 2015's Junior section in Canada. Wood will join Devils teammates David Warsofsky and Keith Kinkade on the senior circuit.

David Warsofsky will join Team USA in Russia for this summer's World Hockey Championship.

Warsofsky will join Devils teammates Miles Wood and Keith Kinkade on the American squad as well. The international veteran will be seeking his third international medal, which includes gold with the Junior team in 2010.

The New Jersey Devils have sent Damon Severson to the minors.

Severson had a goal and 21 points in 72 contests with New Jersey in 2015-16. The Devils season is over, but AHL Albany made the playoffs so he can extend his season by working for them.
Apr 12 - 11:20 AM

Pavel Zacha will report to AHL Albany.

The Devils summoned Zacha so that he could get some NHL experience before the end of their campaign. That worked out well as Zacha registered two assists in his NHL debut. Now that the Devils are done, Zacha will move on to the AHL. He had 28 goals and 64 points in 51 OHL contests in 2015-16.
Apr 12 - 11:16 AM

Reid Boucher will extended his campaign by playing for AHL Albany.

Boucher had eight goals and 19 points in 39 contests with New Jersey in 2015-16. He also had 17 goals and 29 points in 32 AHL contests.
Apr 12 - 11:14 AM

Joseph Blandisi has been sent to AHL Albany.

The Devils' season is over, so they may as well send who they can to help in the minors. Blandisi had five goals and 17 points in 41 games with New Jersey this season.
Apr 12 - 11:12 AM

Patrik Elias isn't sure if he's played in his last game.

"I hope this is not it," Elias said. "But it could be." He'll be an unrestricted free agent this summer and is coming off of a rough campaign. Elias was limited to just 16 games, but he did score two goals and eight points when healthy. If Saturday's contest against Toronto was the end of his career, he ended it on a high note by scoring a goal and registering two assists.
Apr 11 - 9:43 AM

Adam Henrique capped off 2015-16 with his first career 30-goal season during Saturday's 5-1 win over Toronto.

Henrique set a new high in goals with 30, but fell just a point shy of matching his high of 51. Considering how good the pipeline looks in New Jersey, perhaps this is more of a sign of things to come.
Apr 10 - 1:00 AM

Kyle Palmieri capped his magical season at 30 goals during Saturday's 5-1 win over Toronto.

Palmieri collected his 30th tally plus an assist, giving him 57 points in 82 games for his home town New Jersey. He had 43 goals and 99 points in the 198 prior games in his career. Wow.
Apr 10 - 12:59 AM

Devante Smith-Pelly capped off a successful run with New Jersey with another goal during Saturday's 5-1 win over Toronto.

Through 18 games, Smith-Pelly scored eight goals and 13 points. Contrast that with the six goals and 12 points through 46 games in Montreal prior to the trade, and he may have found a new home.
