  • Ex-Devil Salvador Announces Retirement

    News: Bryce Salvador (back) announced his retirement Wednesday in an article on The Players' Tribune.
    Analysis: Bryce Salvador skated 14 seasons in the NHL, recording 24 goals and 86 assists over 786 games. The 39-year-old spent his final eight years in the league with New Jersey, captaining the team for the last three seasons. Injuries dogged him later in his career, but his leadership and sound positional play from the blue line were attributes that outweighed his lack of offensive contributions. He'll remain in the New Jersey organization as an ambassador for the sport.
  • Season In Jeopardy For Devils' Salvador

    News: Though the Devils haven't made it official yet, it appears unlikely that Bryce Salvador (back) will play again this season, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports. "[Salvador's] in rehab right now. He hasn't started skating, so I can't answer how long it will be for him to come back once he starts skating," general manager Lou Lamoriello said Thursday.
    Analysis: The 39-year-old is in the final season of his three-year contract with the Devils. Given his age and impending free agency, it's quite possible that unless Bryce Salvador begins making some notable progress in his recovery over the next month, he may have skated in his last NHL game.
  • Devils' Salvador Dealing With Back Injury

    News: Devils GM Lou Lamorioello said Thursday that Bryce Salvador's lower-body injury, which has kept him out since Nov. 10, is related to his back, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
    Analysis: Progress has been slow thus far for the Devils captain, but he still fully expects to play at some point this season, which could be his final stanza in the NHL. The 37-year-old remains under doctor's care and could be cleared to resume skating once he regains some strength with his back. With two points and a minus-5 rating over 15 games before succumbing to the injury, Bryce Salvador isn't somebody that fantasy owners are anxiously waiting for to come back.

  • Devils' Salvador Out With Lower-Body Injury

    News: Bryce Salvador will miss Tuesday's game against the Wild with a lower-body injury,'s Mike Morreale reports.

  • Devils' Salvador Fills Up Defensive Stats

He plans to kick off his offseason training May 1, at which point surgery will officially be ruled out if he experiences no issues.
  • Salvador Not Traveling With Devils
