Zack Parise, John Madden, Sergei Brylin & Valeri Zelepukin
Well we all know about Parise, as he’s still playing in the league…..Unfortunately not for the Devils, but the Wild.
Madden was regarded during his career as one of the league’s best defensive forwards; he was awarded the Frank J. Selke Trophy in 2001, and finished second in voting 2003, 2004 and 2008. His penalty-killing skills often generated breakaway chances while his team was shorthanded. Madden led the NHL and set a New Jersey Devils’ team record — and tied the NHL rookie record (G. Minor, Van., ’80-81) — by scoring six shorthanded goals during the 1999–2000 season. After playing 14 seasons, he retired on September 4, 2012.
Brylin has won three Stanley Cup championships with the Devils in 1995, 2000, and 2003. Brylin is one of five Devils who have played for all three of their championship teams, the only others being Martin Brodeur, Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens, and KenDaneyko.
Zelepukin’s most important and famous goal, was when he tied the game with 7.7 seconds remaining in game 7 of the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals against the New York Rangers while playing for New Jersey. He won the Stanley Cup in 1995 with the New Jersey Devils. Ohh the memories.
