Taylor Hall introduces himself to New Jersey, takes Parise’s old number

At the moment, it’s kind of weird to see Taylor Hall in a New Jersey Devils sweater.

Not in a bad way … it’s just one of those things you never really think about, what with him sort of getting traded to the Devils out of the blue.

The star winger tried on a Devils jersey for the first time on Sunday and then said all the right things about the market, Cory Schneider and so on. The Devils’ feed features some of his insight about a lighter travel schedule and other pluses in NJ.

He also gave Adam Henrique a hard time, which is always fun.

Interestingly, he’ll wear No. 9 with the Devils, the same number Zach Parise wore for many years.

Here’s Hall wearing it for the first time:

A thumbs up to the Devils’ mascot for a solid “Step Brothers” reference:

Good stuff. Still a little weird, though.
