Draft notes[32]
  • New Jersey will pick 30th overall in the first round.[33][34] The Devils were expected to forfeit their first-round pick in 2014 (they elected to keep their first-round picks in 2011, 2012 and 2013)[35] as the result of a penalty sanction due to cap circumvention when signing Ilya Kovalchuk. The penalty also included a fine of $3 million and the forfeit of the Devils' third round pick in 2011.[36] The NHL partially rescinded the penalty keeping all of the penalties, except for modifying the first-round pick and reducing the fine to $1.5 million.[34][37]
  • New Jersey's fourth-round pick will go to the Winnipeg Jets as the result of a trade on February 13, 2013, that sent Alexei Ponikarovsky to New Jersey in exchange for a seventh-round pick in 2013 and this pick.[38]
  • a  The Florida Panthers' sixth-round pick will go to New Jersey as the result of a trade on September 28, 2013, that sent Krys Barch and St. Louis' seventh-round pick in 2015 to Florida in exchange for Scott Timmins and this pick.[39]
  • New Jersey's seventh-round pick will go to Arizona as the result of a trade on April 3, 2013, that sent Steve Sullivan to New Jersey in exchange for this pick.[40]
