2013 NHL Draft: New Jersey

Saturday was a an eventful day that started off with hearing from Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff as he addressed the media at the hotel in Jersey City.


After the scrum diminished, we jumped in a cab with the camera and hit the road to Manhattan where head coach Claude Noel and his coaching staff were attending a coaching conference. We caught up with Assistant Coach, Pascal Vincent- twice! Once en Francais (for you francophones out there) and once in English.

With the day quickly getting away from us, we realized that a few of the top prospects were putting on an on-ice hockey clinic at the New Jersey Devils practice facility located beside the Prudential Center all the way over in Newark, New Jersey. So we hailed a cab and away we went to talk to the top prospects.

The top four ranked prospects were on the ice with a handful of NJ Devils alumni and a few young hockey players. They ran some fun drills and shared some laughs with the kids. Once the clinic wrapped up, the prospects were then introduced to Buddy from The Cake Boss TV show.

For those who are unfamiliar, Buddy is quite the celebrity here in New Jersey. The hit TLC TV show is shot here in New Jersey and saw the opportunity to film an episode right there on the ice with the top prospects. The players welcomed the 15 minutes of fame with open arms.
