Stevens, who was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2007, was the first player to have his jersey retired by the Devils. His No. 4 hangs from the rafters at the Prudential Center, next to Scott Niedermayer (No. 27) and Ken Daneyko (No. 3), also defensemen who joined Stevens in leading New Jersey to three Stanley Cup titles (1995, 2000, and 2003).

New Jersey also named Matt Shaw an assistant. They will replace Adam Oates, who took the head coaching position with the Washington Capitals, and Larry Robinson, who left for an associate coaching job with the San Jose Sharks.

Also, Dave Barr will remain an assistant on coach Peter DeBoer’s staff, as will goaltending coach Chris Terreri, another former Devil, who won the Cup with New Jersey as Martin Brodeur’s backup in 1995.

New Jersey, a No. 6 seed in the playoffs last year, defeated the Panthers, Flyers and Rangers en route to its fifth Eastern Conference title. The Devils lost to Los Angeles in the Stanley Cup finals.
