Mirco Mueller will join Switzerland for the 2018 World Championships.

Mueller only got into 28 games with New Jersey due to a broken clavicle, so he could probably use the additional work before he begins his summer program. "It was what it was with the injury. I couldn't really do anything about it. But I feel great now," Mueller said. "I feel strong. Going into the summer, I think I'm just going to do the same things I've been doing the last few years and see how it goes with the shoulder. I think it will be all good, but it definitely feels good on the ice." Mueller will be going into the second half of his two-year, $1.7 million contract in 2018-19.

Mirco Mueller might draw back into the lineup for Game 5 on Saturday.

Mueller played in the first two games of the first round series, but was a healthy scratch for Games 3 and 4. However, Sami Vatanen is dealing with an upper-body injury and probably won't be available on Saturday as a result. If that ends up being the case, then the Devils will need to alter their defense and dressing Mueller is a likely outcome. He has no points and a minus-one rating in two playoff games. He's also averaged 16:09 minutes per contest.

Feb 8 - 6:47 PM

The New Jersey Devils have been playing seven defensemen and 11 forwards of late to help out with the return of Mirco Mueller.

The defenseman missed 31 contests and just returned this week from a fractured clavicle so coach John Hynes is making it easier for his return by spotting him in the lineup. This also allows the Devils to double shift Taylor Hall and that helps the team offensively. "Part of having seven defensemen allows us to have different matchups," Hynes said. "I think [Mueller is] a player that will help us down the road. So it’s important to get him some ice time, but not overextend him or put him in situations that he can’t handle after being away from game action for so long."
