The New Jersey Devils have sent Luke Gazdic to AHL Albany.

If Luke Gazdic clears waivers he'll likely be sent to the minors where he can serve in a bigger role.

Gazdic has frequently been scratched by New Jersey. "We just feel that Luke has to play," Devils coach John Hynes said. "We think he’s done a good job for us. He’s come up from Albany, he was playing a regular shift down there. With our schedule, we have a break (five days between games following Monday’s home game against the Sabres), and we don’t see him playing right now in the next few games here. So it’s important for him to continue to play. Then, when we do need him again, he’s got his game in order and he’ll be able to help us again." There's a good chance that he'll go unclaimed on waivers.

While he's obviously not the higher profile player making his return to Edmonton on Thursday, New Jersey's Luke Gazdic will also be playing against his former team.

Gazdic spent his first three seasons with Edmonton. He's been playing for New Jersey this season, but he's spent time in the minors and also as a healthy scratch in 2016-17. He has no points and 12 penalty minutes in eight contests with the Devils. That said, he's hoping that he gets put into the lineup against Edmonton. "I have no idea but I’m really hoping," said Gazdic. "I’d be very disappointed if I wasn’t in. This one means a lot to me."

Luke Gazdic will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the New Jersey Devils.

The 27-year-old suited up in New Jersey's last game, but he played just 7:34 against the Oilers. He has no points, a minus-2 rating and 12 penalty minutes in eight games this season. He shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy radar.

With Travis Zajac returning to the lineup for the Devils, it appears Luke Gazdic will be the odd man out.

The Devils will be thrilled to get Zajac back after he missed one game due to an illness. Gazdic isn't much more than a physical role player who does not possess any fantasy upside moving forward.
