Martin Havlat and Michael Ryder will be scratched against the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.
Ryder has played in just 10 of his season's 44 games in 2015, tallying two goals and four points in that time but none in February. Havlat meanwhile has seen 16 of his season's 38 games in 2015, but only six of those in February with just two goals and five points combined. Needless to say, neither have any fantasy value.

Martin Havlat said he never requested a trade.

Havlat probably would have welcomed one though given that the Devils haven't been using him much lately. He has five goals and 14 points in 38 games in 2014-15. He'll become an unrestricted free agent this summer and it's fair to assume that he won't re-sign with the Devils.

Do not be surprised if Martin Havlat is dealt by Monday.

Havlat has been a healthy scratch in six of the previous seven games and was a minus-three with no points in the game he did play so the Devils really have no interest in keeping him. He could use a change of scenery as he has only five goals and 14 points this season with a minus-12 rating. He had no comment after Saturday's game with regards to being dealt so he is not a happy camper.

It looks like Martin Havlat will be a healthy scratch for the New Jersey Devils on Saturday.

Havlat's certainly familiar with being an unhealthy one. He's been a minor contributor this season (five goals, 14 points, -12 rating in 38 points) and has the name recognition to be at least moderately interesting during the trade deadline.

Martin Havlat was a minus-three in his return to the New Jersey lineup on Friday.

Havlat had missed the previous five games as a healthy scratch. With only five goals and 14 points in 38 games, Havlat could be nearing the end of his NHL career.

Martin Havlat will play and skate on the third line against the Boston Bruins on Friday night.

It's Havlat's first game since Feb. 14th, and he has just five goals and 14 points through 37 games this disappointing season. Dainius Zubrus and Jacob Josefson will line up to the left of Havlat to form their third line.
Feb 27 - 6:31 PM

Martin Havlat will probably be a healthy scratch again on Wednesday.

It would be Havlat's fifth straight game in the press box. He has five goals and 14 points in 37 games in 2014-15. There's a chance he'll be traded before the deadline, but the Devils wouldn't get much for him given how much his stock has fallen.

Martin Havlat will be a healthy scratch once again Monday night against Arizona.

Havlat has had a rough time in his first season with New Jersey and hasn’t appeared in a game since February 14th. He’s only scored five goals to go with nine assists in 37 games played. It’s safe to say he is no longer the fantasy player he was years ago with the Blackhawks and Wild.
Feb 23 - 6:55 PM

Martin Havlat, Michael Ryder, and Mark Fraser will each be scratched against the Vancouver Canucks on Friday night.

Havlat has played in just 15 of New Jersey's 23 games since Christmas. Ryder, just nine. Fraser has 14 games to his credit, each since the calendar turned to 2015. Suffice it to say, neither forward seem to fit within the Devils' plans while Fraser rotates in on the blue line.
Feb 20 - 6:29 PM

Martin Havlat, Michael Ryder, and Mark Fraser will each be scratched against the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night.

Once perennial top flight scorers, Havlat and Ryder don't even combine towards their former selves. Through 80 games they've combined for just 11 goals and 32 points this season. My how father time and injuries can sap one's abilities.
Feb 17 - 7:18 PM

Martin Havlat will draw back in to the Devils' lineup against Nashville on Saturday night.

Taking Michael Ryder's slot in the lineup, Havlat has put up five goals and 14 points 36 game so far this season.
Feb 14 - 6:19 PM

Martin Havlat will spend Friday's game in Chicago in the press box.

Michael Ryder is being put back into the lineup and Havlat's the one that's making room for him. Havlat, who spent three seasons playing for the Blackhawks, was surprised and naturally disappointed by the news. "Especially here – one of the best (arenas) in the league and one of the best teams in the league," Havlat said. "It's always fun to play against these guys. It is what it is. Sometimes decisions have to be made and that's all. I'll be ready for the next game." He has five goals and 14 points in 36 contests this season. He'll be an unrestricted free agent next summer and might end up being moved before the trade deadline.

Martin Havlat is the proud father of a baby daughter.

Nikola was born on Thursday. Havlat had a four game scoring streak snapped on Friday but he has been scoring of late and could be worth looking at in a deep pool. In the meantime, congratulations to the Havlat family on the birth of Nikola.

Martin Havlat potted his fifth goal of the season Friday night, on the power play, though the Devils fell to the Ducks 5-1.

After receiving a pass from Patrik Elias along the goal line, Havlat whipped a shot along the goal line across the crease and through Ilya Bryzgalov's five-hole. So the power play tally was pretty fortunate, but it tied the game at one nevertheless. In 14:13 of ice time, including 1:44 on the power play, Havlat finished with three shots and two blocks.
Jan 17 - 1:08 AM

Martin Havlat will skate with Danius Zubrus and Michael Ryder Thursday night on the Devils' third line against the Boston Bruins.

Ryder leads the trio with just 15 points. Considering that it's now January, it's difficult to recommend any of them as viable fantasy options.
