Although a previous report indicated otherwise, Moore is in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Penguins, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. Although the Devils will be glad to have Moore back in the lineup Thursday against Pittsburgh, his return won't have any impact on fantasy owners' lineups, as he's only notched 17 points (four goals, 13 assists) in 64 games this season.
Moore (knee) won't be in the lineup for Thursday's matchup with the Penguins, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. Moore's absence wont have an impact on many fantasy owners' lineups, as the 25-year-old blueliner has only registered 17 points (four goals, 13 assists) in 64 games this season. Expect an update on the 2009 first-round pick's status once he's ready to return to game action.
Moore (knee) will join the team on the road trip to Pittsburgh on Thursday, but coach John Hynes said he could be a game-time call, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. Moore returned to practice Wednesday and apparently showed well enough to be in consideration Thursday. However, the veteran blueliner's 17 points through 64 games and 19:58 of average ice time leaves him off the fantasy radar in the vast majority of leagues, so his status shouldn't be of too much concern.
Moore was scratched during warmups Sunday due to a leg injury, Rich Chere of The Star Ledger reports. It's unclear how the injury arose, but it will force the veteran blueliner out of action for at least Sunday's contest. Fortunately, Moore doesn't leave much of a footprint on the fantasy landscape, so it shouldn't impact much other than those taking a flier in daily formats. His next chance to play now comes Thursday against the Penguins, while David Warsofsky will take his place Sunday.
Moore scored in overtime Saturday against the Kings. It was Moore's third overtime goal this season, which ties Scott Niedermayer's record (2001-02) for most overtime goals in a season by a Devils defenseman. Moore now has 16 points (four goals) in 61 games and has been logging steady minutes on the New Jersey blueline. He isn't a huge offensive contributor, but his role on the second power-play unit and three overtime goals makes him of value in some very deep leagues.
