The NHL off-season is one of the craziest times for the NHL calendar. Many players change teams in hopes of winning the Stanley Cup.
This is a busy time for organizations and general managers as well, looking for the right piece as part of a rebuild, a playoff berth, or to dominate the conference with a high-priced acquisition.
With the 2023-24 NHL season now a month old, we look at some of those acquisitions who are doing well with their new teams:
There are a lot of NHL players dominating with their new teams so far this year.
Detroit Red Wings forward Alex DeBrincat set the league on fire over the first few weeks of the season. Dominating the score sheet as the upstart Red Wings found new life.
Detroit had taken the league by storm but has come back to reality a bit. He has continued to offensively produce to the pace of a point-per-game. In his first season with the Detroit Red Wings, DeBrincat had nine goals and five assists for 14 points, and is a +4, in 12 games.
New Jersey Devils forward Tyler Toffoli has continued to be a force inside the offensive zone. Having previously played for the Los Angeles Kings, Calgary Flames, Montreal Canadians, and Vancouver Canucks, Toffoli has kept producing in an already offensive club.
Playing between the first and second line, Toffoli has seven goals and four assists for 11 points in 11 games.
Ottawa Senators winger Vladimir Tarasenko has found a new energy with the Senators after many years with the St. Louis Blues.
He fits into the Ottawa lineup quite well, scoring three goals and seven assists for 10 points in 10 games, and is a +7. He gives the young Senators an experienced player and secondary scoring in their push for a playoff spot this season.
