Scott Gomez has turned his career around since rejoining the Devils.

Gomez's career went on a downward path not long after he left New Jersey following the 2006-2007 campaign. It got to the point where he recorded just 12 points in 46 games with Florida last season. In 2014-15, he has four goals and 14 points in 22 games. "I'm in the place now I want to be," said Gomez. "I'm glad to be back. I believe in this team and I'm glad I could come back. This is where I wanted to be. I proved that waiting. This is where I play my best hockey."

Scott Gomez scored a goal in New Jersey's 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders on Friday.

Surprisingly, Gomez has produced a fair amount since being signed by the Devils in early December. Many thought the 35-year-old's career was over after average stints in Montreal, San Jose and Florida in the last few years. Gomez now has four goals in just over a month of action, tying his total from his last two seasons combined. He has 12 points in 20 games this season.

Scott Gomez had a goal and two assists on Saturday.

Gomez has his offensive mojo back this season as he has three goals and 11 points in 17 games after getting 12, 15 and 11 in his last three seasons. He combined with linemates Jaromir Jagr and Adam Henrique for an eight point performance in a 5-2 win over the Flyers. Gomez is getting to be fantasy relevant at the age of 35.

New Jersey Devils forward Scott Gomez enters the 1,000th regular season game of his NHL career.

Gomez spent the bulk of his best years with the Devils, so it's fitting that he'll hit this milestone during his second tour in New Jersey. If he uses this as inspiration, Adam Henrique and Jaromir Jagr may benefit as his linemates.

Scott Gomez continued to play well for the New Jersey Devils, collecting two points in the team's 3-2 shootout loss to the Devils on Long Island Monday night.

Scott Gomez scored for the Devils, who lost 4-3 against the Stars on Saturday night.

Just like old times for the 34-year-old. Per the Devils, it was Gomez’s first goal with New Jersey since March 28, 2007. It’s not only amazing he’s found a team to play for after barely sticking in recent seasons, but he’s also centering the Devils’ top line. Gomez has four points in seven games. Eric Gelinas and Jonathon Merrill picked up the other goals. Adam Henrique recorded two assists.

Scott Gomez and his Devils teammates were shut out by the Penguins by a score of 1-0 Tuesday night.

Gomez skated for over 22 minutes in his season debut, a number that certainly increased as a result of injuries suffered by Jaromir Jagr, Patrik Elias and Stephen Gionta in the loss. Despite the possibility of significant ice time, Gomez has no fantasy value at the moment.

Scott Gomez might make his season debut on Tuesday.

Scott Gomez is still skating with the Devils.

Gomez took part in New Jersey's training camp, but he didn't secure a contract with the squad. He's stuck around in hopes that they would eventually work something out, but we're now a quarter of the way through the season and nothing's happened yet.
Fri, Nov 28, 2014 10:43:00 AM

Scott Gomez is willing to continue to wait and see if a roster spot eventually opens up for him with the Devils.

Gomez attended the Devils' training camp, but with the first month of the season in the books, he remains unsigned. "I know what I got into," Gomez said. "It's only been 11 games for the team. Being here with the coaches and everything, I've felt like I've been a part of it. The worst thing I'd want to do is get in the way." Although he might be a solid bottom-six forward if he signs with the Devils, his days of being a significant fantasy contributor are behind him.
