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." Jan 12 - 11:10 AM

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.
Jan 3 - 6:52 PM

Luke Gazdic has been brought up by New Jersey.

The Devils sent Luke Gazdic back to AHL Albany on Saturday.

Gazdic, who has played just four games with New Jersey this season, has skated in 16 with Albany. In that time the 27-year-old has two points with 19 PIMs. With 201 PIMs and 221 hits in 140 career NHL games, he's best suited for the waiver wire unless you're in need of his type of services. Just make sure he's actually playing first.
