The New Jersey Devils have made two trades:

To Minnesota: Travis Zajac (36yo, 84ovr)
To New Jersey: 2023 1st round pick

To St.Louis: Neil Mackay (20yo, 61ovr, 2.5yellow) & 2022 2nd round pick
To New Jersey: 2022 1st round pick

I feel as if I won both trades. While the Minnesota pick is not for the upcoming draft, it was still a good thing to pick up considering Zajac was playing on the 2nd line in the AHL, and has maybe 2 years left. For the 2nd trade, Mackay was my 2nd round (60th overall) pick last year, but really has no spot on either the NHL or AHL team. So to send him and a 2nd and receive a 1st isn't that bad.

New Jersey now holds Nashville's, St. Louis' and their own pick in the 1st round. After half the season, Nashville sits at 11th overall in the league, St. Louis at 17th, and New Jersey at 6th.
