The lights are not quite as bright in New Jersey as they are over the river in Manhattan, and the scrutiny on the Devils isn’t quite a biting as it is in hockey-mad Edmonton.

But Taylor Hall is ready for his close-up, ready for all that it means to be an imported sports star in this area. Hall was brought to the Devils in an offseason blockbuster trade with the Oilers, and it is going to be a drastic change in atmosphere — and one he’s embracing.

“Hopefully I can be part of a team that grows hockey in Newark and out into New Jersey area, even more so than it has,” Hall told The Post over the phone this week, having been part of a one-for-one swap with the Oilers that sent young defenseman Adam Larsson west.

“In Edmonton, it was a bit of a fishbowl. It’s going to be a different atmosphere here in Jersey. From what I’ve heard from guys that have played here in the past and guys that play here now, they love it. And I’m sure I will, too.”

The Devils report for training camp physicals Thursday, and Hall is the main attraction. For a team that surprised everyone by being in the playoff conversation late last season before missing out for the fourth straight year, he is seen as a major increase in talent, adding one of the best goal scorers in the league to a team that finished dead last in offensive production.

“He’s a player that can make his mark on this hockey team, on and off the ice, and that’s what I’m looking for,” general manager Ray Shero told The Post. “With the help and support of a group of some pretty talented players, and a group that we’re adding to in the last year and moving forward, I think he can make a contribution and make a difference to help us get over the hump and into the playoffs.”
