The 38-year-old Patrik Elias is one of several greybeards the Devils will count on to drive their offensive attack this season, but that's precisely the problem.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2012-13

Merrill is one of New Jersey's more highly rated defensive prospects but has elected to return to the University of Michigan for his junior season. He turned some heads at the club's prospect development camp in July, but the team's second-round pick from 2010 will wait at least one more year before signing a professional contract with New Jersey.

2011-12

Merrill, the Devils' second-round selection in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, posted 25 points (7 G, 25 A) in 42 games as a freshman at the University of Michigan last season. He's listed at 6-foot-3, 209 pounds, which is good size for a defenseman but he'll have plenty of time to work on his game before stepping onto NHL ice.
