It was Timo Time in New Jersey for the first time.

One week ago, the San Jose Sharks traded their top forward, Timo Meier, to the New Jersey Devils for a return centered around prospect Shakir Mukhamadullin and a 2023 first-round selection. However, the Swiss winger was still dealing with an upper-body injury that sidelined him for a couple more games.

Meier made his debut with the Devils in Arizona on a line with stars Jack Hughes and Jesper Bratt. Less than 10 minutes into the contest, Meier scored his first with the team after collected a rebound in the slot.

Meier’s debut finished with the goal, a minor penalty, a -1 rating, and 15:57 in ice-time in the Devils 5-4 overtime victory over the Arizona Coyotes.

“[I had] a lot of energy to go out there and play,” Meier explained. “I haven’t played in a bit so I tried to keep it simple. The puck just followed me in front off the rebound and, yeah, it’s obviously a great way to start.”

Meanwhile, the San Jose Sharks are 0-3-0 since dealing Meier.

“It was fun to get the two points tonight,” Meier said.

As part of a loaded, young forward core that also boasts Hughes, Bratt, Nico Hischier, and Dawson Mercer, Meier could be causing problems for Eastern Conference teams for years to come.
