The New Jersey Devils made 26 shots on goal spread across 14 players, but none of them found the back of the net as they lost a 4-0 game to the San Jose Sharks Monday night.

Vernon Fiddler and Kyle Quincy had three shots apiece; no one else had more than two as the Sharks Martin Jones was incredibly stingy. This was the largest defeat of the year for the Devils.

Vernon Fiddler has an assist in 12 games this season.

Nov 10 - 10:49 AM

The Devils expect Vernon Fiddler to do blue-collar work this season.

New Jersey lost Stephen Gionta, Bobby Farnham, Tuomo Ruutu and Jordin Tootoo, so Fiddler's signing will help fill the need for capable foot soldiers. Fiddler is also known as being a good leader on and off the ice and he can kill penalties.

Vernon Fiddler has signed a one-year deal worth $1.25 million deal with the New Jersey Devils.

Nice move by the Devils as Fiddler is a great bottom-two center. He will not be a great scorer but he is a good penalty killer as well as very good on the draw. He also will be good in the locker room and that never hurts. Do not take him in fantasy drafts however.

The Stars got big production from unlikely sources on Saturday as both Fiddler and Antoine Roussel had three points. The 35-year-old has one goal and five points in 11 games this season. Don't let Saturday's performance fool you. He won't have any fantasy value going forward.
