Tomas Kaberle is a quality player but we had too many of the same type defenceman so we needed to make a change. Thrower is a great prospect and his loss will hurt but it was a needed move. We wish them both the best in New-Jersey.''

The Devils confirm

Bryce has been an absolute soldier for us here in NJ and we hate to see him go however we have like Tomas Kaberle's game for a long time and feel Boston and Carolina were poor fits for his game. We expect to bring him in and let him play in the top-4 with PP time and be a mentor and leader in our locker room.

Dalton Thrower is a prospect we liked going into last years draft and we feel that a player with his heart, work ethic and skills will make the NHL. We love his no nonsense attitude and feel he will fit in well with the type of team we will be putting together moving forward.

We wish Bryce luck in Montreal and feel he will compliment a very offensive blue-line in Montreal.
