  • The New Jersey Devils are a professional ice hockey team based in Newark, New Jersey, that competes in the National Hockey League. They are members of the league's Metropolitan Division of the Eastern Conference. The club was founded in Kansas City, Missouri as the Kansas City Scouts in 1974, moved after two seasons to Denver, Colorado as the Colorado Rockies, and then established itself in New Jersey in 1982. The franchise had been poor to mediocre in the eight years before moving to New Jersey. The pattern continued in its first five years in New Jersey as they failed to make the playoffs and never finished higher than fifth in their division. However, under the guidance of president and general manager Lou Lamoriello, hired in 1987 and who still holds these positions today, the Devils have made the playoffs all but three times between 1988 and 2012, including thirteen berths in a row from 1997 to 2010. They finished with a winning record every season from 1992–93 to 2009–10. They have qualified for five Stanley Cup Finals in their history, winning in 1994–95, 1999–00 and 2002–03, only one Cup short of the Detroit Red Wings as the most since 1990.
