    Devils' David Schlemko: Will play Saturday

    Schlemko (upper body) will play in Saturday's game against the Lightning, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. Schlemko has not played since March 17 due to his upper-body issue, but he will be back on the ice Saturday night. He was quiet in the fantasy department in March when healthy, recording just two assists, zero PIM, and a minus-four rating across eight games.

    Devils' David Schlemko: Likely available Saturday

    Coach John Hynes indicated Friday that he expects Schlemko (upper body) to be available for Saturday's game against the Lightning Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. While he's expected to be available, Gulitti suggests that it may come down to a coach's decision as to whether or not he will dress. The 28-year-old blueliner has collected 19 points through 63 contests this season, but remains only in consideration in some deeper fantasy leagues. The team should confirm his status for Saturday's contest again on game day.

    Devils' David Schlemko: Ruled out against Panthers

    Schlemko (upper body) will not suit up for Thursday's meeting with Florida, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. While Schlemko will not be in the lineup Thursday, he appears to be nearing a return and could see action against the Lightning on Saturday. When healthy, the 28-year-old is not exactly a prolific scorer, as he has failed to register a goal in his last 19 outings. Additionally, the blueliner managed a meager four helpers over that span, further depressing his fantasy value.

    Devils' David Schlemko: Iffy for Thursday

    Schlemko, who has been out since March 17 with an upper-body injury, hasn't been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Panthers, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. Schlemko took the ice with his teammates Wednesday, and while a Thursday return may be pushing things, it looks like the blueliner -- who has 10 points in 63 games -- is getting closer to game action at this stage.

    Devils' David Schlemko: Doubtful to return this week

    Schlemko (upper body) will sit out Sunday and is doubtful to play again this week, Rich Chere of The Star-Ledger reports. It's unclear exactly what's forcing Schlemko to miss his second straight contest, but the 28-year-old blueliner's injury shortens his career-best season a bit. Expect another update when he closes in on a return, but it appears that could be a week or more out.

    Devils' David Schlemko: Out against Columbus

    Schlemko will sit out Saturday's contest with the Blue Jackets due to an upper-body injury, Rich Chere of The Star-Ledger reports. Schlemko has been unable to pencil himself onto the scoresheet in his last six contests and has a goal drought that dates back to early February. Despite his recent struggles, the journeyman is having a career year as he's tallied 19 points in 63 contests. The 28-year-old is not going to help you win any daily contests, but will be thrilled with his ability to contribute.

    Devils' David Schlemko: Contributes rare two points in win

    Schlemko registered two power-play assists in Thursday's 5-4 overtime victory over Nashville. Schlemko hadn't made an impact in the box score for six straight games, all while sporting a minus-6 rating. The Devils are struggling and the defenseman is sinking with the boat, but it's nice to see the 28-year-old grab his second multi-point outing of the season and help New Jersey get back in the win column. Even still, Schlemko is too inconsistent to trust in most formats.

    Devils' David Schlemko: Picking up pace on offense

    Schlemko scored a goal and added a power-play assist Thursday in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Leafs. He's really come alive on offense lately, racking up six points in the last five games. Schlemko's usage has been ramping up lately -- after averaging just over 17 minutes for much of the year, he's averaged well over 20 in the last six games, coinciding with the absence of Jon Merrill (upper body). While we can't expect him to keep up anything resembling this pace, it certainly seems Schlemko has carved himself out a permanent role on the Devils' power play, which gives him value in deeper formats.

    Devils' David Schlemko: Scores first goal of new year

    Schlemko scored a third-period power-play goal on his only shot of the game Tuesday against the Rangers, and it held up as the winner. However, he also went minus-2. While the goal was his first since Dec. 29, Schlemko's piled up four points -- all of them on the power play -- in the last four games. Unfortunately, despite playing in front of one of the best goalies in the league in Cory Schneider, Schlemko owns a minus-8 rating, and the reasons for that were on display Tuesday, as he was on the ice for two J.T. Miller goals at even strength. Nonetheless, the late-blooming Schlemko has shown he belongs in the NHL, and his role on the man advantage gives him sneaky fantasy value in deeper formats.

    Devils' David Schlemko: Will play Tuesday

    Schlemko (illness) will play Tuesday against the Penguins, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports. Schlemko didn't practice Monday due to an illness, but was never in serious danger of missing Tuesday's matchup with Pittsburgh. The 28-year-old defender has tallied 12 points (four goals, eight assits) in 41 games this season, and is expected to be paired with Eric Gelinas in Tuesday's contest.
