Will Butcher set a Devils franchise record after tallying three points (three assists) in his NHL debut during New Jersey’s season-opening victory Saturday. *Interesting factoid – He also became the first defenseman with three assists in his first career game since Boston’s Jarno Kultanen in October of 2000. We can’t wait to see what he does today!
