NEWARK, NJ – By and large, the New Jersey Devils image on the ice has been defined by the organization's consistent red, black and white uniform colors that it has used since the 1992-93 NHL season. Aside from the tributes to the heritage jerseys, which the team wore for the first decade after its inaugural season, there hasn't been much diversity in the team's game day sweaters.

In no class was this more evident than 2016 when Jim Harbaugh snagged six players from the Garden State, including Rashan Gary, the consensus top player in the country, and Kareem Walker, once the country’s top running back. The class ended up ranked fourth nationally (and second in the Big Ten behind OSU), according to Rivals.com, bolstered mostly by N.J. recruits.
