Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Chico was always a popular one when he was with the Devils. Hell, he was THE face of the team when they first came
in from Denver.

He was also an experienced netminder that won a Stanley Cup with the Islanders, while the Devils were a young and
growing (operative word) team. You thought Brodeur played a lot of games? Chico shouldered a lot of responsibility to
try and bring respectability to the young Devils team, where a loss was frequent, sorry to say.

The system's goaltending was becoming quite deep by the time Resch was traded. Yeah, it was time to give the young
ones a chance.

But Chico remained a popular figure among Devils fans, even after he retired and ultimately became a color
commentator for SportsChannel/FSN/MSG Plus' Devils broadcasts from 1996 to 2014.
