Today’s NHL news: Nico Hischier – the first overall pick in the 2017 draft – started his NHL career off in style with a highlight goal in the New Jersey Devil’s first preseason game Monday night. Watch as the 18-year-old splits two defenders, dekes goaltender Vitek Vanecek and deposits the puck in the back of the net.
Are we sure @nicohischier hasn't played in an NHL preseason game before?
