Catching up with Brian Gionta

Gionta attended his brother Stephen's wedding on Friday.


newjerseydevils.com –
The schedule for the new season has been finalized, and the countdown toward 2008-09 is officially underway.

With the Devils set to square off in their home opener against the New York Islanders on Friday, Oct. 10, we checked in with right wing Brian Gionta on Friday to find out what he's been up to this offseason.

Gionta finished '07-08 as New Jersey's third-leading scorer, collecting 22 goals and 31 assists, and was one of four Devils to appear in all 82 games.

His campaign included a team season-high six-game point streak in November (5g-5a-10pts) and a five-game point run in February (2g-4a-6pts), that helped catapult him beyond his 45-point output from '06-07.

Newjerseydevils.com caught up with the Rochester, N.Y., native on one of the busiest days of the Gionta family's summer calendar.

I love the moves we've made this offseason. - B. Gionta
BG: My brother, Stephen, is getting married today, so right now we're hanging out and waiting to get ready.  We've been spending time out on the lake in Rochester with our son, Adam, and new daughter, Leah. Basically just living family life day-to-day, and in the last couple of months we've been preparing for Stephen's wedding.

My typical day has included working out in the morning from 7:30 to 9:30, then coming back home to enjoy the rest of the day boating on Lake Ontario or just playing in the yard with the kids.

I've also been hitting the ice with my brother, along with Ryan Callahan of the Rangers, Rory Fitzpatrick of Florida, Doug Janik of Tampa Bay, Scott Nichol of Nashville. We've all been working out this summer and skating together.

I love the moves we've made this offseason. Obviously having Bobby Holik back is a huge pick-up for us as far as depth and faceoffs. We've had him before so we know what he brings, and Bobby and I were teammates for a season in New Jersey.

Brian Rolston obviously helps us out offensively, and can contribute a lot of minutes on the PK and the power play. They were both big additions for us.
