Devil fruit has always been a favorite fruit in the NHL, so it’s no surprise that all Devils players have gotten a taste of the playoffs this season.
The Devils have had plenty of fruit this season, but none of them have been the same fruit, as it was not even on the Devils’ roster this season (they had three different players on the team last season, one of whom was Nicklas Backstrom).
But as it turns out, Backstrom is back on the ice for the Devils this season with an eye to being the guy who is the next to get to play in the playoffs.
“This is probably the best, most fun season I’ve had,” Backstrom said, after taking part in a Devils’ training camp session.
“It’s been awesome, really.
I can’t say enough good things about it.
You get to see guys from every level, even at the top, and it’s all new to me, so I’m excited to get going.”
While Backstrom’s goal scoring numbers in his first season with the Devils were down, he did score seven goals and 16 points last season.
He is also the only player on the roster who is not on the first line.
But he has also scored 11 goals and 19 points this season and is second on the club in points (47).
Backstrom said he did not have a bad time training this summer.
He said he got to spend time with his dad, who he says is a really good person and helped him improve his hockey skills.
“I’ve gotten to see him practice every day,” Backston said.
“I’ve been really happy with my skating and my passing and my scoring and my blocking.
He’s a good person.”
The Devils are still looking for a top defenseman in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, and Backstrom would fit in well with any team that wants a top-pairing defenseman.
Backstrom also said that he wants to be a team leader in the dressing room.
“It’s good to see people like that, because we all want to be good,” he said.
“If I have to be the leader of the team, that’s how I want to do it.
It’s going to be tough, but it’s the best feeling I’ve ever had.”
The New Jersey Devils are currently in their second preseason game, and if they play like they did during their second game of the season, the Devils will be in the thick of the postseason race.
