The Devils, as they are known, were founded in 1982, but they had previously existed under both the Kansas City Scouts and the Colorado Rockies name, however, consistently mediocre performances forced the Rockies to be sold to Arthur Imperatore, a trucking mogul based in New Jersey.
Imperatore had bought the team with the intention of bringing the franchise to his hometown, a plan that was met with much contention due to the existence of the Islanders, Rangers and Flyers in the area. In 1982 the plan came to fruition and the Colorado Rockies became the New Jersey Devils, with the name coming from the legend of the Jersey Devil.
The first 5 years in New Jersey were rough, with the side failing to finish higher than 5th place in the Patrick Division, however, they continued to improve year after year from the 1983-84 season. Their improvement was evident in the 1987-88 campaign when the Devils recorded their best season yet, finishing the regular season with a record of 38-36-6 and going as far as the Conference Finals where they lost 4-3 to the Boston Bruins.
The Devils continued to perform well in the regular season in the years that followed, but failed to impress in the postseason, bombing out in round 1 for 4 consecutive seasons.
The 1993-94 campaign marked the Devils’ move from the Patrick Division to the Atlantic Division, where they immediately found success under new head coach Jacques Lemaire. The Devils finished 2nd in the Atlantic Division in their first season and made it as far as the Conference Final, where they were once again beaten over 7 games, this time to their bitter rivals, the New York Rangers.
The Devils got their redemption the following year, once again finishing second in the Atlantic Division during the lockout shortened season before breezing through the first 3 rounds of the playoffs to meet the Detroit Red Wings in the Stanley Cup Final.
The Red Wings were the wide favourites to lift the cup, but were left stunned by the Devils, who waltzed their way to a clean sweep victory and recorded their maiden Stanley Cup championship victory.
Despite the historic victory, the Devils would not back up their season the following year, instead they failed to even qualify for the playoffs, becoming the first team in 26 years to do so the year after winning the Stanley Cup.
Fortunately, the Devils bounced back from this, ushering in a long period of success which saw them secure multiple 100+ point seasons, as well as making the Stanley Cup Final in 3 of 4 years ranging from 1999-2003, 2 of which they would go on to win.
Over 25 seasons from 1987-2012 the Devils only missed the postseason on 3 occasions, finishing atop the division on 9 occasions. However, the years since have not been kind to the once mighty side, with financial woes leading to the franchise changing hands in 2013.
The Devils slipped back into mediocrity, recording a winning record in just 1 of the last 9 seasons. Often plagued with lengthy injuries as well as losing key players, the franchise has struggled to rebuild. The most recent campaign was no better, with the Devils winning a measly 19 of 56 games, failing to reach the postseason for a third consecutive year.
The 2021-22 campaign was a forgettable one for the New Jersey Devils. As they finished the year with a record of 27-46-9. They missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs and finished in 7th place in the Metropolitan Division.
If you are a fan of the New Jersey Devils, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2022-23 season. Do the New Jersey Devils have the star power to make it all the way to the playoffs and win the Stanley Cup in 2023?
