The New Jersey Devils selected Jack Hughes, an 18-year-old center from Orlando, Florida, with the first overall pick in the NHL draft on Friday night.
The pick was announced by Devils Hall of Fame goaltender Martin Brodeur, who was taken in the 1990 draft in Vancouver.
Hughes is the eighth American selected first overall in the NHL draft, and the first since Auston Matthews was drafted at No. 1 by the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2016.
The New Jersey Devils won the 2019 NHL draft lottery after entering Tuesday night's event in Toronto with the third-best odds.
It's the second lottery win in three years for the Devils. They won it in 2017 and selected center Nico Hischier.
"I said the No. 1 thing we needed was [more] talent, and this is a huge part of getting more talent. It's a huge day for the Devils," GM Ray Shero said after the draw.
The New Jersey Devils have given executive vice president/general manager Ray Shero a new multi-year contract despite a disappointing season that saw the team finish with the NHL's third-worst record.
Managing partner Josh Harris announced the contract on Monday without disclosing length or salary details.
The Boston Bruins have acquired Marcus Johansson from the New Jersey Devils for a second round pick in 2019 and a fourth rounder in 2020.
In the final season of a three-year deal with a cap hit of $4.583 million, Johansson was an attractive rental leading up to the deadline.
The Devils acquired Johansson for second- and third-round draft picks after he put up career highs of 24 goals and 58 points in 82 games for the Capitals in 2016-17.
The Nashville Predators made a pair of trades Wednesday, acquiring veteran forward Brian Boyle from the New Jersey Devils and forward Cody McLeod from the New York Rangers.

Hynes, 43, led the Devils to their first playoff appearance in five years last season, but they are struggling this season. With a 15-17-7 record, they're in seventh place in the Metropolitan Division.
Hynes' overall record since being hired in June 2015 is 125-122.
From the inspirational Willie O'Ree to the controversial Gary Bettman, the Hockey Hall of Fame inducted a memorable Class of 2018 on Monday night in Toronto.
It's a class that included former New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur, owner of a dozen NHL records and one of only two netminders to play over 1,000 NHL games; winger Martin St. Louis, an undrafted and undersized player who starred for the Tampa Bay Lightning and scored 1,033 points career points; Jayna Hefford, who won four Olympic gold medals with Team Canada; and Alexander Yakushev, a Russian scoring star who captured Olympic gold twice.
Forward Brian Gionta has announced his retirement from the NHL after 16 seasons.
Gionta, 39, is a former Canadiens and Sabres captain and two-time U.S. Olympian. He won a Stanley Cup with the Devils in 2003.
"Playing with my childhood team the Sabres was a highlight of my career," the western New York native said at a news conference Monday.
With his playing career over, Gionta said he's taking a role within the Sabres organization.
