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.

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.

Dec 9 - 10:45 AM

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.
