New Jersey Devils® History

The New Jersey Devils® were born in 1982, the third incarnation of a franchise that began as the Kansas City Scouts (1974-76) before spending six years in Denver as the Colorado Rockies.

Despite a talented roster featuring players such as John MacLean, Aaron Broten, Bruce Driver, and Pat Verbeek, they fell short of playoff appearances in early years. The arrival of president/general manager Lou Lamoriello in 1987 started the franchise's rise to the NHL® elite. They made the Playoffs in 21 of the next 24 seasons, including five trips to the Stanley Cup® Finals.

The Devils made it as far as the conference finals in the 1987-1988 and 1993-1994 seasons,  preparing them for their historic run the following year in which they won their first Stanley Cup® Championship, sweeping the Detroit Red Wings.

With Martin Brodeur, Scott Stevens, Scott Niedermayer, Ken Daneyko, Patrick Eliáš, and Sergei Brylin leading the way, the Devils survived a March coaching change and returned to the Stanley Cup® Finals in 2000. They dispatched the Dallas Stars in six games on an iconic double-overtime Cup-clinching goal by Jason Arnott. The next season, as the best offensive team in the NHL®, they returned to the Final.

The Devils' stretch of dominance was far from over, though. They won their third Stanley Cup® Championship in 2003, spoiling the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim's first-ever playoff run with a Game 7 shutout orchestrated by Brodeur. Celebrating its 40th year in Jersey, the club has won three Stanley Cup® Championships and five Eastern Conference Championships in that time.
