Boqvist inked a three-year, entry-level contract with New Jersey on Monday.
Boqvist racked up 35 points in 51 outings with Brynas IF Gavle in Sweden, earning himself an ELC from the Devils. Drafted by the club with the 36th overall pick of the 2017 NHL Draft, the center will get an opportunity to secure a spot on the 23-man roster during training camp, but may have to settle for playing for AHL Binghamton to start the 2019-20 campaign.
Boqvist will not take part in the Prospects Challenge, instead linking up with his Swedish league club Brynas, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.
Fans awaiting Boqvist's debut with the organization will have to wait a little longer for him to don the team's sweater. Selected by the Devils in the second round of the 2017 NHL Draft, the center secured 13 points in 23 outings for Brynas last season. Fantasy owners can likely expect the 19-year-old to spend some time developing in the minors even once he makes the jump to North America.
