Devils' Dawson Mercer: Durable rookie season
Mercer dressed in all 82 games as a rookie in 2021-22, totaling 17 goals and 25 assists.
Mercer showed plenty of promising traits in his first NHL season. He displayed both durability and versatility, as he was the only player to play in every game for the Devils while shifting between center and wing depending on who was available around him at the time. Mercer was also one of only six New Jersey skaters to top the 40-point mark, so he was productive as a rookie and has a bright future ahead of him as a likely middle-six staple for years to come....

Mercer scored a goal and added two assists -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Lightning.
Mercer opened the scoring with his 11th goal of the season, then assisted on goals by Yegor Sharangovich and Jack Hughes. The former came on the power play late in the first while the latter gave New Jersey a 3-1 lead early in the second, but it was all Tampa Bay after Hughes' goal. While this one didn't go the Devils' way, they have reason to be optimistic over the play of their first-round selection in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, as Mercer has compiled 28 points over his first 50 games in the NHL....

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.

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: 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.

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.... See More ... See Less
