Dainius Zubrus was not at all happy with the 6-1 loss to the New York Rangers on Saturday.
The Rangers and Devils meet again on Tuesday so Zubrus and his teammates will have a chance at redemption. "Absolutely. We hate losing. It doesn't matter who it is against, but these are divisional games and especially playing against these guys," Zubrus said. "There is no doubt we want to come out with our best game on Tuesday and win the game. I don't know what that would do for them in the standings, but we want to win. We want to play well."

Dainius Zubrus scored the Devils' only goal in their 2-1 loss to Anaheim on Sunday.

The 36-year-old had some productive seasons in the NHL but it's safe to say that those days are long gone. This was Zubrus' first point in nine games. Zubrus has just four goals and nine points in 68 games for the Devils. It was reported earlier that New Jersey would like to cut ties with Zubrus but he is under contract for next season. Unless they buy him out or send him to the minors, expect him to be on their roster again in 2015-16.

It's possible that Dainius Zubrus may not be a member of the New Jersey Devils next season despite a no-trade contract according to the Newark Star-Ledger.

The newspaper stated that the Devils really don't want to pay $3.1 million for a checker who has only three goals and eight points in 66 games. "I don't know what the future holds," Zubrus told NJ Advance Media. "We've missed the playoffs a couple of seasons now. I know the last 10 games or so I've played against the top lines a lot with Patty (Elias) and Gio (Stephen Gionta). I think, for the most part, we've done pretty well. We've done a decent job shutting lines down and not being easy to play against. I like doing that. I enjoy playing against good players. Of course I would like to get more offense out of myself because the chances are there. But I still think I can play against top players and not be easy to play against."

Dainius Zubrus scored a goal in a 6-2 loss Tuesday night.

It was Zubrus' first point since Jan. 31. He has eight points in 59 contests in 2014-15.

The New Jersey Devils get Dainius Zubrus back in the lineup on Saturday.

He missed time with leg lacerations. With just four points in 28 games so far in 2014-15, this is more of a JFYI than pertinent information for virtually all fantasy hockey owners.

Dainius Zubrus (leg) skated on his own before practice on Friday.

Zubrus has missed the last six games with cuts on the back and side of his knee. He has only two goals and four points in 28 games so if you are missing him from your lineup, you are in big trouble or haven't looked at your roster since the draft.

Dainius Zubrus (leg) has been moved to injured reserve.

He is retroactive to Dec. 8 and was placed on New Jersey's injured list to give the team some flexibility prior to the NHL's upcoming holiday roster freeze. Zubrus skated on his own on Thursday.

Dainius Zubrus will miss Saturday's game with a cut on his leg.

Zubrus was cut on Monday and this will be the third straight game that the veteran will have missed. He has only two goals and four points in 28 games so if he is in your lineup, you really aren't paying a lot of attention.

Dainius Zubrus will not play in Thursday's game against the Flyers.

Zubrus suffered a cut on his leg on December 8th against Carolina and has already missed one game because of the injury. "I'm missing a little bit of strength in my leg, in that spot," Zubrus said. "It's affecting my strength and that's holding me back." The 36-year-old has two goals and four points in 28 games this season.

Dainius Zubrus (leg) might rejoin the Devils on Thursday.

If nothing else, Zubrus has accompanied the Devils on their trip to Philadelphia. New Jersey returned Reid Boucher to the minors, so there's a vacant spot for either Michael Cammalleri (lower body) or Zubrus to return.
Thu, Dec 11, 2014 08:54:00 AM

Dainius Zubrus (leg) won't be available on Tuesday.

Zubrus has four points and 12 penalty minutes in 28 games in 2014-15. The Devils didn't have a morning skate, so it's hard to say how the lines will look with Zubrus temporarily out of the picture, but Reid Boucher has been called up, so he'll at least help fill the void.

Dainius Zubrus' leg was cut by a skate blade during Monday's game.

Zubrus sustained the injury in the second period. He tried to return at the start of the third frame, but he only lasted one shift before leaving for the remainder of the contest.

Dainius Zubrus has been playing alongside Stephen Gionta and Steve Bernier lately.

Zubrus has just two goals and no assists in 19 games this season and he's not likely to see an improvement offensively on that line. He's not worth owning in standard leagues at this time.

Dainius Zubrus opened the scoring for New Jersey, but the team fell to the Penguins by a score of 8-3.

The goal snaps a seven-game pointless drought for Zubrus, who registered a minus-4 rating and failed to rack up any penalty minutes during that span. Jacob Josefson and Tuomo Ruutu also tallied for the Devils in the loss while Stephen Gionta picked up a pair of assists.

Dainius Zubrus had three goals this week as he broke out of a long slump.

Zubrus had only two goals and two assists in his previous 38 games heading into action on Monday and now has 13 goals this season to go with 13 helpers. He is now seeing second line action with Damien Brunner and Michael Ryder on his wings.
