Devils giving Travis Zajac well-deserved sendoff in front of fans Thursday


NEWARK — More than a year after achieving the milestone, the Devils’ Travis Zajac was to be honored during Thursday night’s game for playing 1,000 career games with the franchise.

“That’s something you want to give him and something that he deserved, too,” said Jesper Bratt, who was a teammate for four seasons with Zajac. “It was the situation we were in and we could not give him that, so to have that kind of celebration is awesome and I’m happy to be a part of it.”
