The 1990–91 New Jersey Devils season was the team's 9th season in the National Hockey League since the franchise relocated to New Jersey. The Devils finished 4th in the Patrick Division and lost in the Division Semi-finals to the Pittsburgh Penguins 4 games to 3.

Regular Season[edit | edit source]

This was the first time in the franchise's 17-year history that the team qualified for the playoffs in consecutive seasons. The team would make one huge move towards their future when they drafted Martin Brodeur with their first round selection in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft.
