New Jersey Devils: Where Does Jesper Boqvist Go From Here?

New Jersey Devils center Jesper Boqvist (90): (Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports) The New Jersey Devils learned a lot about the roster this past season. A lot of it was good. Yegor Sharangovich became a breakout star after a successful stint in the KHL. Janne Kuokkanen showed he was exactly what the Devils hoped when they traded Sami Vatanen to the Carolina Hurricanes. Jack Hughes pushed himself to a superstar trajectory. These are all great progressions for this young roster. One player who did not progress positively is Swedish winger Jesper Boqvist.

Boqvist scored his first goal of the season in Thursday's 6-3 win over Buffalo. Boqvist broke a 3-3 tie 8:45 into the third period, and his goal stood up as the game-winner. He has three points in his last four games after failing to get on the scoresheet in his first seven appearances this season, and the 22-year-old Boqvist should have a permanent lineup spot moving forward with New Jersey having traded away a pair of veteran forwards to commit to a youth movement.
