Kennedy (lower body) will rejoin the lineup Thursday against the Panthers, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. Kennedy was expected to play Thursday, and that is indeed the case after missing four straight contests because of the issue. While the veteran has tallied 14 points in 46 games this season, it's hardly enough to keep him in consideration for fantasy leagues, so his return will likely go unnoticed for the most part.
Kennedy (lower body) won't play Friday against the Capitals, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports. Kennedy has now missed back-to-back games with a lower-body injury he sustained in Sunday's matchup with Columbus, and remains without a definitive timetable for his return to action. Those keeping tabs on Kennedy's availability can expect an update on the 29-year-old winger's status once he's able to resume skating.
Kennedy (lower body) will not travel with the team to Pittsburgh on Thursday, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. Kennedy exited Tuesday's contest with the lower-body issue, and it appears ti will require some added recovery time. Joe Blandisi took his place on the top line during Wednesday's practice session, and appears the likely candidate to grab the spot Thursday as well while Kennedy will now aim to return Friday against the Capitals
Kennedy left Sunday's game against Columbus with a lower body injury, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports. Kennedy left in the second period and was considered questionable to return, but he never made it back into the contest. He's been unusually productive of late, recording five points over his previous three games before Sunday. Kennedy will have four days to recover before the next game, as the Devils don't play again until Thursday.
Kennedy was a driving force behind the New Jersey offense Thursday, racking up three assists and a plus-2 rating in a 7-4 win over Minnesota. He helped out on Devante Smith-Pelly's goal in the game's first minute, which got the Devils started on their best offensive output of the year. Kennedy's uncommonly warm right now, having put together five points over the course of a three-game streak. Don't count on it to continue.
