No. 25: New Jersey Devils

Previous: 17th

Record: 16-16-7

With Taylor Hall back in the lineup and continuing to thrive with New Jersey, the Devils began the year with a 3-0 shutout over the Boston Bruins. Goaltender Cory Schneider is elite without question, but the trend will have to continue for the Devils if they wish to get back into the early playoff picture.
