Stephen Gionta suffered a broken hand when he blocked a shot during Monday's game.

There's no timetable for Gionta's return yet, but he's already been placed on the injured reserve list. With Gionta out, Adam Henrique is expected to shift back to center so that he can play alongside Tuomo Ruutu and Steve Bernier. New Jersey also called up Mike Sislo to help fill the void.

Stephen Gionta was the beneficiary of the new coaching regime in New Jersey as he saw some time on the power play.

The Devils used Gionta for 1:51 minutes with the man-advantage, as he saw action on the second unit. Gionta had seen only 44 seconds in his previous 36 games so this was a big deal for the veteran fourth liner. He has three goals and six points this season so the bump up to the power play still does not make him fantasy worthy.

Stephen Gionta scored his third goal of the campaign Tuesday night, but it wasn't enough as the Devils were defeated by Carolina by a score of 2-1 in a shootout.

Gionta is nothing more than a depth forward for the low-scoring Devils, meaning he's not worthy of your fantasy attention. His tally was assisted by Steve Bernier and Tuomo Ruutu.
