newjerseydevils.com – The Devils' past first-round selections have included current players such as Zach Parise, Travis Zajac and four-time Vezina Trophy winner Martin Brodeur. But the 2007-08 roster also featured an assortment of players that the club acquired with picks beyond the opening round.

The Devils will be looking to add to that collection of talent at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft this Friday at Ottawa's Scotiabank Place (7 p.m. ET, VERSUS).

After their first-round selection at 21st overall, New Jersey is slated to have seven more in this year's draft, including picks in the the second (52nd overall), third (82), fourth (112), fifth (142), sixth (172), and seventh (202, 205) rounds.

Here's a look at some of the players on the current roster who were chosen by the Devils after the first round:

Sergei Brylin (LW) - New Jersey's second choice, 42nd overall in the 1992 Entry Draft, Brylin has spent his entire 13-year career with the Devils, and was a member of all three of the franchise's Stanley Cup championships. Only four other players – Martin Brodeur, Ken Daneyko, Scott Niedermayer and Scott Stevens – have hoisted the Cup three times as Devils.

Brylin, one of four Devils last season to appear in all 82 games, is the team's current ironman with 328 consecutive appearances. It's the second-longest streak in club history behind Daneyko (388).

Jay Pandolfo (LW) - Selected with the Devils' second choice, 32nd overall, in the 1993 Entry Draft, Pandolfo is an 11-year veteran with 706 career games under his belt. He owns the fourth-longest consecutive games streak in club history (307), behind Daneyko, Brylin and Kirk Muller (321), and was a member of New Jersey's Cup titles in 2000 and 2003.

A native of Winchester, Mass., Pandolfo has been voted by his teammates as the club's Unsung Hero/Players' Player in three straight seasons.

Patrik Elias (LW) - Taken in the second round, 51st overall, in the 1994 Entry Draft, Elias is a former 40-goal scorer with 20 or more tallies in eight of his 10 seasons in New Jersey.

The native of Trebic, Czech Rep., holds the team record for game-winning goals (60), is tied with Niedermayer for the most assists in franchise history (364), and is the Devils' all-time postseason points leader (39g-71a-110pts). He has collected a team-high 19 career power-play postseason goals, and is tied for first in club history with six playoff game-winners.

Elias has registered 264 goals and 364 assists for 628 points in 745 career games, and was a member of the Devils' championships in 2000 and 2003.

Colin White (D) - The seven-year vet was selected with New Jersey's fifth choice, 49th overall, in the 1996 Entry Draft. White led all rookies in 2000-01 with a plus-32 rating, and has recorded a plus-55 over 522 career regular-season games.

A mainstay on the Devils blueline, White was a member of the team's championships in 2000 and 2003.

Brian Gionta (RW) -
A fourth-round selection, 82nd overall, in the 1998 Entry Draft, Gionta was a member of the club's 2003 championship, and struck for a club-record 48 goals in his third full season with the Devils ('05-06). The Rochester, N.Y., native appeared in all 82 games last season, finishing third on the team with 22 goals and 31 assists for 53 points.

In 392 career games, Gionta has 132 goals and 120 assists for 252 points. He scored the first Devils' goal in Prudential Center history on Oct. 27, 2007.

Mike Rupp (C) - The 6-5, 230-lb. forward was drafted with the Devils' seventh pick, 76th overall, in the 2000 Entry Draft, and later was reacquired as a free agent in 2006.

Rupp, who has spent four seasons with New Jersey, scored the 2003 Stanley Cup-clinching goal in Game 7 of the Finals against Anaheim.

Paul Martin (D) - New Jersey's fifth choice, 62nd overall, in the 2000 Entry Draft, Martin finished first in scoring among Devils' defensemen in 2007-08 with 32 points (5g-27a) and second with a plus-20.

The Minneapolis native has appeared in 305 career games, collecting 119 points.
