The New Jersey Devils have brought in some pretty sweet prospects over the past few seasons. Nico Hischier and Jack Hughes each came in with the first-overall pick, and guys like Jesper Boqvist, Jesper Bratt, and Ty Smith hold the keys to the future along with them. One prospect who has a chance that doesn’t get the same amount of love is Aarne Talvitie.
Talvitie is a Finnish born forward that took a bit of a different route than most Finnish players. Instead of playing in the Finnish Elite League, KHL, or any other men’s pro league, he chose American College Hockey.
