Cammalleri (shoulder) will return to the lineup for Friday's game against the Islanders, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
The oft-injured winger has missed the Devils' last 13 contests while recovering from a shoulder ailment, but he'll get an opportunity to shake off some rust during the final six games of the season as long as he's able to stay healthy. Cammalleri should be considered a depth option in most fantasy formats at this late stage in his career.
Cammalleri (shoulder) could return for a road match either Friday against the Islanders or Saturday's game opposing the Flyers, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
The point-packing winger is progressing well based on his newly acquired injury status of "day-to-day." Cammalleri has missed the past 13 games with his injury, but the Devils have been eliminated from playoff contention and therefore have no reason to rush him back.
Out since sustaining his injury March 2, Cammalleri has just taken a major step in his recovery. The question now is when he'll be able to withstand contact in practice. New Jersey only has eight games remaining in the regular season, so he's in a race against time to help fantasy owners in the virtual playoffs.
Coach John Hynes indicated Wednesday that he doesn't see Cammalleri (shoulder) returning to practice anytime soon, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Already sidelined for the team's last six games due to the injury, it appears there's no definitive timetable for the veteran winger's return at this point. One of the better fantasy options in New Jersey, Cammalleri had tallied 30 points in the first 55 games this season, but the Devils have little incentive to rush him back into action. Fantasy owners can freely consider dropping him with less than a month remaining in the season.
Cammalleri (shoulder) won't play in Tuesday's tilt against the Jets, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
After missing the last five games, the veteran will continue to miss time, showing that his shoulder ailment is more than your everyday bumps and bruises. The Devils, who struggle on offense, really could use Cammalleri's 10 goals and 20 assists back in their lineup. He'll get another chance to return on Thursday against Philadelphia.
