New Jersey Devils No. 1 pick Nico Hischier is going to have shot at making the roster this season. He could join a long list of young stars who have made the jump from the draft room to the ice, but it would be up to GM Ray Shero.

“Yeah, for sure. I mean, it’s my goal, so it is important for sure,” Hischier said on draft night, according to NBC Sports. “I really want to achieve my goal, but I still know I have to prove a lot of things to play there.”

Shero was optimistic about the decision to jump Hischier to the ice right away.
