08:54 AM ET 03.24 | Although the Devils are the oldest team in the NHL (an average of more than 29 years old), it's apparent that, in recent times, general manager Lou Lamoriello is turning to younger guys with hopes to cement his team's future. The newest of youthful additions is Matt D'Agostini, who was added to the Devils roster on Friday in a trade agreement with the Blues. While not as young as 22 year-old forward Andrei Loktionov, acquired by the Devils in February, or players like Adam Henrique (23) and Adam Larsson (20), at 26, D'Agostini was still surprised to receive the news. "Surprised, a little shocked," D'Agostini admitted of being traded to the Devils after the team's optional morning skate on Saturday. "You are always, around this time, thinking about it. Still shocked. Tough to say goodbye to the guys and leave the team, but at the same time very excited to be here and be a part of this organization."

It's a little early for that Nardo. There's still 8 teams below you in your conference.

Apology to Otis as I kept thinking the Stars had to be the oldest team by far:)

They just play the oldest Shipper. Although the Avs didn't think so yesterday.

I'm glad the Wings don't hold that title anymore, those young kids are learning....slowly.
