2014-15 Devils Fantasy Preview

Which Devils should you keep an eye on for your fantasy draft? NHL.com's Pete Jensen delivers the inside scoop.

Undervalued: Cory Schneider -- The goalie with the best goals-against average (2.01) League-wide over the past three seasons combined (minimum 100 games) is finally a full-time starter. Owners can expect the Devils to provide Schneider with more goal support and benefit from the addition of Mike Cammalleri up front. New Jersey allowed the fewest shots on goal per game and had the best penalty kill last season, so Schneider should be considered a top-10 fantasy goalie entering 2014-15.

Deep-league diamond: Adam Henrique -- Henrique shattered his previous career-high in goals with 25 in 77 games last season, but the center's high shooting percentage (18.2, tied for fifth in NHL) isn't likely to carry over to this season. Henrique still has name value in deep leagues after that strong playoff showing in 2012 (13 points, three game-winning goals in 24 games), but his limited category coverage should keep him off your radar until later rounds.

Sleeper: Eric Gelinas -- The departure of Anton Volchenkov and Mark Fayne mean the Devils will rely heavily on Gelinas to improve his game defensively. That's good news for fantasy owners who took advantage of his offensive production when he was not being healthy scratched or playing in the AHL last season. Only Torey Krug had more power-play points (19) than Gelinas (17) last season among NHL rookie defensemen, so it won't be long before the 23-year-old surpasses Marek Zidlicky as the Devils' most dangerous power-play threat from the blue line.
