John Carroll Moore Jr. (born November 19, 1990) is an American professional ice hockey defenseman currently playing for the New Jersey Devils. He was drafted in the first round, 21st overall, of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Playing career[edit]

Junior[edit]

Moore as a Ranger in October 2014

Moore attended New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois. Before his professional debut, he played for several hockey teams including the Winnetka Warriors, Chicago Young Americans and Chicago Mission (both AAA teams). He officially began his junior hockey career with the Chicago Steel of the United States Hockey League (USHL) during the 2007–08 season. In 56 games with Chicago, Moore had four goals and 15 points, then he added two assists in seven playoff games. He returned to the Steel for the 2008–09 season and saw his numbers improve greatly, as Moore had 14 goals and 39 points in 57 games. However, Chicago did not make the playoffs. He was eligible for the 2009 NHL Entry Draft and was the sixth-ranked North American player as well as the top-ranked North American defenseman.[1]

Moore was selected by the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) in the second round of the 2009 OHL Priority Draft, also being selected by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round, 21st overall, of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. Prior to his rookie season with the Rangers, Moore was signed to a three-year entry level contract with the Blue Jackets on July 21, 2009.[2] In his maiden season with the Rangers in 2009–10, Moore had 10 goals and 47 points in 61 games. Moore then put up impressive numbers in the playoffs, earning 16 points in 20 games as the Rangers lost to the Windsor Spitfires in the Western Conference Finals.[citation needed]

Professional[edit]

Following his rookie season with the Blue Jackets, Moore was assigned to start the 2010–11 season with the Blue Jackets' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Springfield Falcons. After 47 games with the Falcons, Moore was recalled by the Blue Jackets and made his NHL debut in a 4–3 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on February 5, 2011.[3] His first NHL goal was scored on October 25, 2011 against Ty Conklin of the Detroit Red Wings.

During the lockout-shortened 2012–13 season, Moore was included in the NHL trade deadline day deal made by the Blue Jackets that sent Derick Brassard, Derek Dorsett, himself and a sixth-round draft pick to the New York Rangers in exchange for Marián Gáborík and prospects Blake Parlett and Steven Delisle on April 3, 2013.[4] In his first game as a Ranger, only three hours after the trade, Moore scored his first goal of the season in a 6–1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

On March 1, 2015, Moore, along with Anthony Duclair, a 2015 second-round pick and a 2016 first-round pick, was traded to the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for defensemen Keith Yandle, Chris Summers and a 2015 fourth-round pick.[5] June 29, 2015, Moore was not tendered an offer as a restricted free agent by the Coyotes, making him an unrestricted free agent. He signed a three-year deal with the New Jersey Devils on July 1, 2015.[6]
