Pavel Zacha registered an assist in a 4-3 shootout loss to Winnipeg.

Zacha has recorded a point in seven of his last nine games. He's up to eight goals and 23 points in 64 games this season. That's obviously not a lot of offensive production out of the 19-year-old rookie, but he's got plenty of untapped upside that we might start seeing more of in 2017-18.

Cory Schneider stopped 33 of 36 shots in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday.

Schneider has one win in his last 11 games in goal for the Devils, posting a 1-7-3 record during that stretch. His 20-24-11 record, 2.71 goals against average and .911 save percentage are by far the worst numbers of his career. During the final games of the season, he's testing out some new equipment with the hopes of having a huge bounce back campaign next year.

Taylor Hall scored a goal in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday.

Hall got loose for a breakaway and put a beautiful move on Hellebuyck before potting home his 19th goal of the year. Despite nursing some injuries that will likely hold him out of the World Championships, Hall has picked up nine points in his last 10 games. His 51 points in 66 games this season lead all Devils players.
Mar 28 - 10:31 PM

Jon Merrill will be scratched against Winnipeg on Tuesday.

Through 47 games this season he's posted six points along with 24 PIMs, 37 hits and 64 blocks.
Mar 28 - 7:00 PM

Mike Cammalleri (upper body) might be available to return this weekend.

He is considered to be day-to-day. Cammalleri has been out of action since Mar. 2 due to an upper-body injury.
Mar 28 - 5:36 PM

Cory Schneider will start Tuesday night as New Jersey's rotation continues.

For five straight contests, coach John Hynes has alternated starts between Schneider and Keith Kinkaid. Schneider has posted one victory in his last 11 appearances.
Mar 28 - 4:53 PM

Joseph Blandisi will return from an illness on Tuesday night.

Bladisi didn't play on Sunday. He has earned three goals and six assists in 22 games this season.
Mar 28 - 4:40 PM

Michael Kapla has signed a two-year, entry-level contract with New Jersey.

His contract will begin with the 2016-17 season, so he will report to Devils. Kapla skated in four seasons with the University of Massachusetts-Lowell. He had 30 points in 41 games during the 2016-17 campaign.

Andy Greene suited up in his 700th career NHL game on Sunday.

Unfortunately for Greene, the Devils dropped a 2-1 OT decision to the Stars, but that won't take away from the accomplishment. "Yeah, it’s obviously a lot of games," said Greene. "When you first come in the league, all you’re trying to do is make it and get that first game. And once you get that first game, it’s ‘How do I stick here and become a regular and stay in this league?’ A lot of good people early on showed me the ropes and showed me the right way to do things on and off the ice and I’m appreciative of that."

Joseph Blandisi didn't play in Sunday's 2-1 OT loss against Dallas because of an illness.

The Devils opted to dress 11 forwards and seven defensemen in Blandisi's absence. He's considered day-to-day for now.
Mar 27 - 9:56 AM

Keith Kinkaid allowed two goals on 32 shots in Sunday's 2-1 OT loss to the Dallas Stars.

Kinkaid stopped all 24 shots he faced at even-strength, but Stars forwards Ales Hemsky (third period) and Tyler Seguin (overtime) both found the back of the net on the power play. The Devils goalie has a 7-11-3 record with a 2.73 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage this season. He isn't worth owning in fantasy leagues.
Mar 26 - 8:28 PM

Blake Coleman scored in Sunday's 2-1 OT loss to the Dallas Stars.

Coleman stole the puck from a Dallas defender before beating Keith Kinkaid from in close. The goal was the first of his NHL career. He now has two points in 17 games this season. Coleman isn't worth owning in fantasy leagues. You can watch the goal by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.

Pavel Zacha saw his six game points streak end on Saturday.

Zacha had an assist in each game during the streak. He has eight goals and 22 points so while this season has not been a fantasy gem by any means, next season should be a lot better for the 19-year-old. Do not forget about the sixth overall pick in the 2015 Draft next season in deeper leagues.
Mar 26 - 9:12 AM

Keith Kinkaid will get the start against Dallas on Sunday.

It will be Kinkaid's fourth start in the last seven games as they have now been officially eliminated from playoff contention. Kinkaid is 7-11-2 this season with a 2.77 GAA and a .913 save percentage. It's awfully hard to recommend him in DFS games on Sunday.
Mar 26 - 9:07 AM

Cory Schneider gave up three goals on 28 shots Saturday night as the Devils lost 3-1 to the Hurricanes.

For a brief moment, it appeared that Schneider had turned his bad fortune around. In his most recent outing against Rangers Tuesday, he won his first game in nine attempts. That snapped a nine-game losing streak. Saturday night’s .893 save percentage was on par with his average of .896 for the past 10 games.
