Player News - Devils

Date: Team: Pos:

Patrik Elias (knee) engaged in some light skating on Thursday.

It was Elias' first time on the ice since December. He's been limited to 13 games this season due to knee problems.
Feb 11 - 11:58 AM

Jon Merrill (arm) has been given the green light to take part in the Devils' full practices.

Merrill might not be able to return this weekend as he still needs to get in some practice time, but this is obviously an encouraging sign. He hasn't played since Jan. 16.
Feb 11 - 11:57 AM

Cory Schneider will be the Devils' starter on Saturday.

It will be Schneider's fourth straight start. He has a 2.01 GAA and .930 save percentage in 46 contests this season.
Feb 11 - 11:52 AM

Don't expect Mike Cammalleri (hand) to return this weekend.

The Devils are set to play against Philadelphia on Saturday and Los Angeles on Sunday. Cammalleri has already missed five straight games due to the injury.
Feb 11 - 11:36 AM

Martin Brodeur thinks that Patrik Elias should be the next member of the New Jersey Devils to get his number retired.

"I think so, but that's me," Brodeur said. "The organization will decide, but don't tell him because he's still playing. He'll be mad at you if you talk about jersey retirement already." The Devils recently extended that honor to Brodeur. Elias getting his No. 26 retired is an easy argument to make. He's third on the Devils' all-time games list with 1,237 and has more goals (407), assists (615), and points (1,022) then any other player in franchise history.
Feb 10 - 9:20 AM

Jon Merrill's upper-body injury is to his arm.

Merrill hasn't been able to play since Jan. 16. Consider him week-to-week.
Feb 10 - 9:13 AM

Cory Schneider stopped 19 of 20 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers.

It's a fitting performance from Schneider on a night when the Devils retired Martin Brodeur's number 30. The 29-year-old is 6-2-1 over his last nine games and he's allowed two goals or less in all but one of those contests. He has a 24-16-6 record in 2015-16. He'll continue to be one of the better fantasy goaltenders going forward.
Feb 9 - 11:09 PM

Damon Severson returns to the Devils' blue line against the Oilers on Tuesday.

Through 50 games so far this season Severson has posted 12 assists and 13 points with 49 hits. While the assists matches his career high set last season, the Devils are probably looking for a bit more from the youngster.
Feb 9 - 6:15 PM

Cory Schneider will face Edmonton on Tuesday night.

Just in case you aren't impressed enough by Schneider, here's a couple of bits of perspective. Against western team's this season he's 9-5-1 with just 27 goals against and a .937 save percentage. Against Pacific division teams he's even better at 4-1-1 with a .947 save percentage. Wow.
Feb 9 - 6:12 PM

Patrik Elias (knee) may resume skating on Thursday or Friday.

He had surgery on his knee four weeks ago and he has been rehabbing off the ice.
Feb 9 - 1:06 PM

There is currently no timetable for the return of Mike Cammalleri from a hand injury.

Cammalleri missed his fourth game in a row with the injury and after the game coach John Hynes told everyone the news. "You could call it week to week or day to day," Hynes said. We’re just trying to see how it goes every three or four days, if there’s improvement. We’re planning on him being back at some point hopefully soon but there’s no set timetable." Stay tuned as Cammalleri has 14 goals and 38 points in 42 games.
Feb 9 - 8:37 AM

New Jersey goalie Cory Schneider was outstanding Monday night, stopping 35 shots, but he and the Devils were beaten 2-1 by the Rangers in New York.

Schneider is now 2-1 against the Rangers this season, but he deserves to be 3-0. The Devils couldn't find the Rangers' net until Travis Zajac scored on a shorthanded goal late in the third period. The Rangers have only five goals on 95 shots against Schneider this season. Schneider has an overall record this season of 23-16-6 and has been the Devils' most-valuable player. His goals-against average is 2.03 and his save percentage is .929. Schneider won't be available in your fantasy league because he's too good. But you could use him against most teams in one-night action. Problem is, he won't get as many wins as he should because, like Monday, his teammates often don't score enough.
Feb 8 - 11:20 PM

New Jersey Devils' center Travis Zajac spoiled a shutout bid by Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist Monday night by scoring a shorthanded goal at 17:43 of the third period.

The Devils still were defeated 2-1 in New York. Zajac's goal was his eighth of the season. An assist on the goal went to Adam Henrique. Henrique has 22 assists this season.
Feb 8 - 11:14 PM

Tuomo Ruutu will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the New York Rangers.

The 32-year-old will be a healthy scratch for a fourth consecutive game. He has no goals and no assists in 15 games this season. Damon Severson and Stefan Matteau will join him in the press box.
Feb 8 - 7:07 PM

Mike Cammalleri will not be available against the Rangers and Oilers to begin the week.

This will mark five straight games missed for Cammalleri after Tuesday Feb. 9th. He has enjoyed a defiantly resurgent season with 14 goals and 38 points in 42 games.
