Cammalleri (hand) is done for the season, per coach John Hynes. The 33-year-old winger, who last saw action on Jan. 26, thus concludes his 2015-16 campaign with 14 goals and 38 points in 42 games for New Jersey. Cammalleri remains under contract with the team for the next three seasons, at an annual cap hit of $5 million.
Cammalleri (hand) skated Sunday but was unable to use a stick while doing so, Rich Chere of The Star-Ledger reports. Cammalleri still appears to have an undetermined timetable, but coach John Hynes indicated Sunday that a decision on his status the rest of the way should come in the near future. Expect another update when that is handed down, but even if he does return this season, it likely won't be too soon.
Coach John Hynes indicated Friday that Cammalleri (hand) is "not close" to rejoining the lineup after suffering a setback, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. Hynes also didn't rule out the possibility that he will miss the remainder of the season. Cammalleri's absence is certainly a big blow for both the Devils and fantasy owners, and the club will likely go the cautious route with their star winger to avoid further setbacks. The team should continue running with their current top-six for the foreseeable future, and may provide further updates on Cammalleri as he further progresses. It's a judgement call at this point whether it's worth hanging on to him, as there's a decent chance he's played his last game of the 2015-16 campaign.
Cammalleri (hand) was ruled out for the Devils' next two outings Wednesday, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. Cammalleri has played in a mere four games since the start of 2016 due to injury. In the rare instances he was healthy, the winger has been averaging almost a point per game with 14 goals and 24 helpers in 42 contests. If the 33-year-old returns this season, he certainly offers top-end fantasy value as he's logged 10 power-play points in addition to his even-strength contributions.
Cammalleri (hand) will remain out of action for at least two more games, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. Cammalleri continues to be ruled out for multiple games at a time, undoubtedly a frustrating trend for fantasy owners banking on his production. Even though Cammy's missed 16 games this season, including the past eight, he's still ranked second on the team with 38 points -- that speaks volumes as to how valuable he is offensively, while also putting a microscope on the team's overall struggles with putting the puck into the net.
