The New Jersey Devils acquired Beau Bennett from the Penguins in exchange for the 77th overal pick in the 2016 entry draft.
The Penguins selected defenseman Connor Hall with the pick. Bennett, who was a huge disappointment the last few seasons in Pittsburgh, remains an intriguing project. Devils' GM Ray Shero knows Bennett well as he was involved in drafting him while in Pittsburgh. It will be interesting to see whether New Jersey can coax more than the 12 points (in 33 games) out of Bennett this upcoming season. The Devils have had recent success in reviving the career of Kyle Palmieri.
