New Jersey Devils: Tyce Thompson to make NHL debut

The playoffs are all but an impossibility at this point for the New Jersey Devils and developing their youngsters must become priority number one.

21-year-old prospect Tyce Thompson joined the team in late March and will be making his NHL debut on Tuesday night against the Buffalo Sabres, for whom his brother Tage plays.

The forward is coming off his third season at Providence College, where he averaged a point per game.

The Devils have a well-known problem in terms of scoring goals, and the hope is that the former fourth-round pick can provide an offensive spark.
