Top Dawson Mercer News

  • Devils' Dawson Mercer: Doles out two assists

    Mercer produced a pair of assists in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Hurricanes.

    The Devils drafted Mercer 18th overall in 2020, and he's paying huge dividends in a third-line capacity with nine goals and 13 assists through 39 contests. He's been lauded for his creativity within the attacking zone and there's a super high ceiling for Mercer if he can improve his skating.

  • Devils' Dawson Mercer: Picks up helper

    Mercer logged an assist, two shots on goal and a minus-2 rating in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over the Capitals.

    Mercer set up Damon Severson for a first-period tally. In his last two games, Mercer has picked up three points. The 20-year-old rookie is off to a strong start in his NHL career, earning 19 points, 63 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating in 33 contests. He'll continue to play in a middle-six role, as Nico Hischier and Jack Hughes are locked in as the Devils' top centers.

  • Devils' Dawson Mercer: Two-point effort in OT win

    Mercer scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 6-5 overtime win over the Oilers.

    The 20-year-old rookie had managed only two points, both goals, through 11 games in December prior to the outburst. Mercer is now up to nine goals and 18 points in his first 32 NHL contest as the 2020 first-round pick establishes himself as a key part of the Devils' rebuild.

  • Devils' Dawson Mercer: Scores shortie in loss

    Mercer scored a shorthanded goal on four shots in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Red Wings.

    Mercer got the Devils within two goals late in the second period, but a comeback push never materialized. This was the first shorthanded point in the 20-year-old's young career. He's up to eight goals, eight assists, 57 shots and a plus-2 rating in 29 appearances, and he's shown himself to be capable of playing in a top-six role when the Devils are thin at forward.

  • Devils' Dawson Mercer: Buries power-play goal

    Mercer scored a power-play goal on two shots in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Flyers.

    Mercer doubled the Devils' lead to 2-0 at 11:35 of the second period on a tip of a Ty Smith shot. The 20-year-old Mercer entered Wednesday on a four-game point drought. He's dropped into a third-line role with Jack Hughes back in the fold after returning from a shoulder injury. Mercer is at seven goals, 15 points (two on the power play), 47 shots on net and a plus-6 rating through 24 contests.

  • Devils' Dawson Mercer: Produces helper in win

    Mercer notched an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-3 rating in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.

    Mercer didn't have as much fun as linemates Andreas Johnsson (two goals, two assists) and Jesper Bratt (goal, two assists), but he was still on the ice for the Devils' best moments Sunday. The 20-year-old Mercer has performed admirably as a rookie with six tallies, eight helpers, 44 shots, a plus-12 rating and 10 PIM in 19 contests. Jack Hughes (shoulder) is nearing a return after participating fully in practice Saturday, but Mercer should still play a prominent role in the Devils' offense even if his ice time takes a slight dip.

  • Devils' Dawson Mercer: Tacks on assist

    Mercer produced an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Rangers.

    Mercer is riding a four-game point streak, during which he has two goals and four helpers. The 20-year-old has settled in nicely as the Devils' second-line center with Jack Hughes (shoulder) out. Mercer is up to 11 points, 33 shots on net and a plus-7 rating in 14 contests. The Newfoundland native probably won't maintain this consistency all year, but he's making a name for himself that could lead to Calder Trophy hype at the end of the season.

  • Devils' Dawson Mercer: Two-point effort Saturday

    Mercer scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Bruins.

    The 20-year-old rookie opened the scoring for the Devils in the second period, but the Bruins already held a 2-0 lead and Mercer couldn't get his team back to level. The 2020 first-round pick has a point in three straight games, and on the season he has an impressive five goals and 10 points through his first 13 NHL contests.

  • Devils' Dawson Mercer: Picks up third goal

    Mercer scored a goal on five shots and had two PIM in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to Columbus.

    The rookie tied the game at 2-2 midway through the second period, walking out from behind the net and sliding the puck around Columbus netminder Joonas Korpisalo. Mercer has been a consistent offensive contributor for the Devils, providing three goals and five points with 17 shots over his first seven NHL games.

  • Devils' Dawson Mercer: Two-point effort Tuesday

    Mercer scored an even-strength goal and added a power-play assist in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Flames.

    Playing in just his fifth NHL game, the 2020 first-round pick put together his first multi-point performance and recorded his first point with the man advantage. The 20-year-old is getting a big opportunity while Jack Hughes (shoulder) is on the shelf, but Mercer is playing well enough to potentially keep a top-six assignment even after Hughes is back in the lineup.

  • Devils' Dawson Mercer: Nabs assist in NHL debut

    Mercer posted an assist, two shots on goal and four PIM in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Blackhawks.

    Mercer set up Andreas Johnsson's third-period tally for the former's first NHL point. It wasn't all good for the 19-year-old Mercer, as his double-minor for high-sticking Tyler Johnson helped spark the Blackhawks' rally to force overtime in the contest. A first-round pick from 2020, Mercer earned a job with the big club this year and opens the season as the third-line center. He'd likely have to move to the wing to get into the top six, as he's unlikely to unseat Nico Hischier or Jack Hughes down the middle.
