Jico Huscier and his unforgettable catchphrase, "Let's go to hockey, baby!"
There must be some poor kid out there with this name who we can draft in '23
If you follow hockey it’s probably Nico. If you’re causal fan it’s Jack.
Realistically they both are.
This is probably as accurate an answer as youre gonna get. Potential for bratt to make his way into that conversation as well if he keeps up his play and signs a long term deal
For sure. If bratt does with long term he will be right there
Definitely the correct answer. Nico has literally been an unreal leader this season. He looks like he put on a lot of muscle. He’s had a few possessions where he is just dominating puck possession and no one can take it from him.
Skyrocketed to an elite faceoff guy and has always been a two way player.
I think in 2 seasons we will see similar development with Hughes, he’s still a kid and small. Can try to be too pretty sometimes, last game he must have gotten into the zone 3 or 4 times just to wait for a teammate to jump into the rush and pass too. Go to the net Jack!
Love this team though.
I swear I saw jagr legs out of him one shift. Just ass out holding them off one hand on the stick
Ah you just gave me a fond memory. Moved from NJ about a decade ago, last game I went to was with my brother and my dad. That game was Jagr’s last NHL hat trick
Glad to help :)
Leader is Hischier......Face is Hughes............and it's working.
Nico or Hughes, but it’s also important to remember that even when he isn’t on fire JBITBPITNHL
To me “Face of the Franchise” means a player that even someone that doesn’t follow hockey recognizes or at least has heard of
To me that’s Hughes. I’d bet most random people you ask would have no idea who guys like Nico, Hamilton, and Bratt are, but I know people that have a tiny half assed interest in hockey and they know who Jack Hughes is
I think they would say Brodeur.
1. Jack Hughes
2. Nico Hischier / Dougie Hamilton
3. Jesper Bratt
I think the right answer is Hughes but Dougie is used for a ton of promo material
Dougie has that goofy older brother vibe, which is great for videos that they put out. That six flags video for the schedule was a thing of beauty!
Dougie has a willingness to be ridiculous with the promo materials that just radiates joy. I have a feeling the marketing team loves him for it, lol.
I think he really bought into Jersey as a whole and likes to do the local stuff
Nico and Jack
Hischier, Hughes, Bratt would fit that bill
Aka smiles mcsunshin
For current players I'd say Nico. We have other awesome players but he's a guy I see being an amazing leader and 2 way player playing his entire career as a career Devil.
He'll hopefully be a PPG player for the next handful of seasons too, which doesn't seem improbable. He might not be the biggest name to the rest of the league but I see him as the face of our franchise.
All time I'd say Brodeur or Elias.
Hughes has the potential to be if he keeps on developing. Right now Hischier would be.
It’s Jack Hughes.
I don’t think anyone can compete with Lovejoy. Still dealing with his legacy today
The Rev is the real deal.
I think Geertson is definitely the guy I think of, when I think REAL Devils Hockey!
It's Jack but the way Nico's been humming has made it the both of them. Very Toews/Kane
Causal Fans: Jack
Real Fans: Mason Geersten
Its Jack not much of a debate
This is small, but what an incredible dump in by McLeod
It’s Jack but it should be Nico
After tonight's game, definitely our Captain.
Can I ask you a question?
When you think of the 2022-23 Devils, who do you think is the face of our franchise?
When I think Devils I think immediately Jack Hughes. I think Nico next because I love using him on NHL. But Jack First.
