Salvador was expected to be out at least a week but it's turning into a month or more as he suffered a non-displaced stress fracture of his foot. Salvador had two assists in nine games before the injury with nine penalty minutes so he has limited fantasy value at best when healthy.

Bryce Salvador is optimistic that his fractured foot won't keep him out of the lineup for long.

"Really, it's day to day," Salvador said. "It comes down to once the bone starts healing a bit. It's not displaced or anything, so it doesn't require surgery or being put in a cast, so I'm pretty fortunate from that standpoint." He has two assists and nine penalty minutes in nine games this season.

Bryce Salvador is expected to miss at least a week with a non-displaced stress fracture in his foot.

An MRI revealed the fracture over the weekend after an X-ray taken last week came back negative. Salvador's foot has been sore since he blocked a shot last Tuesday against Columbus and he missed New Jersey's last two games due to a death in his family. "It's just going to be time," GM Lou Lamoriello said. "It could be a week, could be 10 days. It's just time." The Devils have placed him on injured reserve.
