Former Montreal Canadiens coach Claude Julien was hired yesterday as coach of the New Jersey Devils, who were forced to play much of last season with their general manager behind the bench. Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello replaced worn-out coach Larry Robinson in December with the team in danger of missing the playoffs. Julien coached Montreal from January 2003 to January 2006, when he was fired. After getting off to a 12-3-1 start this season, the Canadiens won only seven of the next 25 games, and Julien was dismissed.

THE NEW JERSEY Devils signed center Travis Zajac to a long-term contract. Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello announced the deal on Wednesday, shortly after Zajac scored a goal in a scrimmage against Albany of the AHL. The deal will run 8 years, and pay Zajac, who should be the No. 1 center this season, $46 million. Lamoriello said the two sides had started to work on the new contract before the NHL lockout began in September. They finished it after the league and its players finalized a new 10-year collective bargaining agreement.

It took only one look for voters to pick this year's class of Hockey Hall of Famers. Former New Jersey Devils great Scott Stevens was elected in his first year of eligibility, along with Mark Messier, Ron Francis and Al MacInnis. Stevens won three Stanley Cup titles with the New Jersey Devils while punishing the opposition as the game's best hitter. In addition to the championships Stevens won with the Devils, he was chosen as playoff MVP in 2000. A fearless player known as much for his leadership as his bone-crunching body checks, Stevens proves there is room in the Hall for more than just offensive players.

New Jersey Devils left wing Scott Gomez will be sidelined four to six weeks with a broken left hand. Gomez was hurt in the third period of the Devils' 4-2 loss to the New York Islanders on Monday night in a collision in the corner with teammate Bobby Holik and the Islanders' Dave Scatchard. Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said yesterday that tests showed Gomez broke two bones in his hand and will need surgery once the swelling goes down. He could return for the second round of the playoffs.

Right wing Alexander Mogilny was placed on waivers by the New Jersey Devils yesterday, a day after Patrik Elias' return. Elias was back in the lineup Tuesday night against Florida after missing several months with hepatitis. With Mogilny on the bench, Elias took his place and recorded an assist. After the game, coach Lou Lamoriello would only say that the 16-year veteran was a healthy scratch. Yesterday, he said the move was "strictly a personnel decision. " Mogilny, 36, who scored 43 goals for the Devils' Stanley Cup-winning team in 2000, was re-signed for a reported $7 million over 2 years in August after playing three seasons with Toronto.

New Jersey Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said it was a tough decision personally - and a risky one. The Devils traded backup goaltender Chris Terreri to the San Jose Sharks for a second-round pick in the 1996 entry draft, Lamoriello announced yesterday. The Devils lose a goaltender who has been with the organization since 1983. They also lose an experienced backup to Martin Brodeur. Terreri, 31, has appeared in four games this season, and is 3-0-0 with a 2.57 goals-against average.

Ed Snider, chairman of the Flyers' parent company, Comcast-Spectacor, and Lewis Katz used to attend NHL meetings when the latter owned the New Jersey Devils. But Katz, 72, was more than a fellow owner to Snider. He was a confidant and best friend. Katz served as Snider's best man when he was married last year. "He was like my brother. I'm devastated and still in shock," Snider said in a statement after learning that Katz, the co-owner of The Inquirer, Daily News, and Philly.com, was among seven people aboard a private jet who died in a crash Saturday night in suburban Boston.

NEWARK, N.J. - Superstar forward Ilya Kovalchuk stunned the New Jersey Devils and the sports world Thursday, retiring from the NHL to return to his native Russia. In leaving, the 30-year-old Kovalchuk walked from $77 million left on the 15-year contract that he signed with New Jersey in 2010, including guaranteed annual salaries of at least $11 million over the next four seasons. The Devils announced the stunning news Thursday afternoon, saying that the 30-year-old Kovalchuk had alerted general manager and president Lou Lamoriello earlier this year that he wanted to return home with his family after 11 seasons in the NHL. "Gentlemen, this wasn't a decision made by the New Jersey Devils," a testy Lamoriello said at the end of a conference call held less than an hour after the retirement was announced.

With Martin Brodeur nearing his 40th birthday and entering the final year of his contract, this season at first had the look of a last hurrah for the New Jersey Devils' goalie great. Well, the hurrah part was right. It's been one hurrah after another, reaching a high point Friday night. Brodeur made 33 saves to help the Devils defeat the rival New York Rangers, 3-2, in overtime in Game 6 to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals against the Los Angeles Kings. Game 1 will be Wednesday in New Jersey.

NEWARK, N.J. - A little more than a year after he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in the "builder" category, Lou Lamoriello's team is falling apart. Lamoriello is the highly successful, always optimistic president and general manager of the New Jersey Devils - who could be headed toward the biggest one-season drop-off in NHL history. In the process, the Devils, who visit the Wells Fargo Center to play the Flyers on Saturday, have become a part of the fodder that the Garden State - fair or not - seems to provide for late-night comedians.

NEWARK, N.J. - There was a lot of action between the Flyers and Devils last night at the Prudential Center. And it wasn't limited to the ice. A source close to the situation told the Daily News that the Flyers are interested in acquiring Devils captain Jamie Langenbrunner, who, coincidentally, agreed to waive his no-trade clause yesterday and sat out last night's game as a healthy scratch. Langenbrunner was not even in the building for the game. The source said the Flyers were first contacted on Tuesday by the last-place Devils, who are aggressively shopping Langenbrunner, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. But, at presstime, it was rumored that Langenbrunner's destination appears to be Dallas.

Fifty weeks ago, Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello sat in his office at Prudential Center trying to comprehend what had gone wrong in what might have been the most devastating 80 seconds in franchise history. In those final 1:20 of Game 7 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals, the Devils turned a 3-2 lead into a 4-3 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes. So, instead of contemplating a second-round series against Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals, Lamoriello was searching for "reasons" why a team he thought was capable of making a run at the team's fourth Stanley Cup was eliminated in the first round for the second year in a row. "No excuses," he said that day. "No looking left or right.
