The Devils announced their 2018-19 preseason schedule, which will lead into the team’s regular-season opener in Sweden.
The six-game slate will be highlighted by the finale, when they play SC Bern in Bern, Switzerland. at 7:30 p.m. local time (1:30 p.m. EST) on Monday, Oct. 1 at PostFinance Arena.
The Devils will stay in Europe to open their season against the Edmonton Oilers at 7 p.m. local time on Saturday, Oct. 6, at Scandinavium in Gothenburg, Sweden. That translates to a 1 p.m. face-off time in New Jersey.
Was Hall’s season best in Devils history?
This is not complicated. Jones believes he’s outperformed his contract. A thousand players before him have felt the same way, and thousand more after him will.
The difference with this example is that Owens is involved, and so naturally, he is being used as a scapegoat. Because that’s just the treatment Owens gets.
Global warming? That’s Owens’ fault, too. Stock market takes a hit? Owens. Aliens invade? All Owens.
At Triple-A, Frazier has hit .302 with eight homers, 12 RBI and a.937 OPS in 42 games.
On Tuesday, Boone was asked what he’d tell Frazier about dealing with going up and going down.
Go be yourself, Boone said. He’s here because he’s really talented and he continues to earn this opportunity. The thing I’ve liked about Clint and have been excited about is the couple little glimpses we’ve gotten to see of him up here this year, he’s represented well, he’s had good at-bats.
Boone cited Frazier’s maturity in handling the disappointment of going back to the minors.
And when I’ve sent him back down, one of the conversations I’ve had with him, both times I sent him back, is, ‘Keep on working, keep on getting better, taking your craft seriously every day,’ Boone said.
