After the first team meeting of the New Jersey Devils’ 2018 development camp, Bobo Carpenter, who attended it as an invitee, had some time to burn.
So, he decided to walk around Prudential Center. "Being a player, you don’t really get to see what the fans see up there," said Carpenter, a center who’ll be entering his senior season with the Boston University Terriers this fall.
During his travels around the arena, he stopped for a few minutes when he saw a picture of the Devils’ 1995 Stanley Cup championship club, taken during the team’s 20th anniversary celebration in March 2015, and studied all of the players’ skates.
Carpenter then took a closer look at the skates of his father, Bobby, who played 18 National Hockey League seasons and was a center on that team.
