New Jersey Devils RFA Profile: Jesper Boqvist

I’d like to start today by welcoming all of you readers to Jesper Day Two in our summer free agency series. While Jared profiled the one whose future is more well known in Bratt yesterday, today I’m going to be looking at the one who is more on the cusp for the New Jersey Devils in Boqvist. Boqvist has had an up and down time in his NHL tenure to this point, however he posted his best season to date in 2021-22. Additionally, he became a true regular in the lineup from late December on, and arguably for the first time looked like he belonged at the NHL level. He’s certainly no Jesper Bratt, but that latter stretch from last season begs the question: What exactly should the Devils do with Jesper #2?

Assuming New Jersey re-signs the 23-year-old forward, Boqvist will head into next season as a favorite to hold down a spot in the bottom six.

New Jersey Devils: Has Jesper Boqvist Finally Turned A Corner?

The New Jersey Devils are getting some good play from some players on the ice, but others haven’t lived up to the expectations. That’s one of the reasons why the Devils are at or near the basement of the Metropolitan Division depending on which day you look at the standings. They now have an eight-day break to think about what is going to happen next. They went into the break after blowing a 3-1 lead and losing to the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-1.
