  • Devils' Jon Merrill: Will not play Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5:55 pm ET) Merrill (illness) won't play in Friday's matchup with Montreal.

    The defenseman isn't much of a score, with only four points in 23 games this season, so his absence alone won't make much of a splash in most fantasy leagues. However, whenever a top liner is out, there will be a ripple effect in the minutes of the rest of the players at the position. Kyle Quincy and Karl Stollery will probably get most of Merrill's 18:11 minutes divided between them.

    Devils' Jon Merrill: Scores first goal of campaign

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/7/17) Merrill scored his first goal of the season during Friday's loss to Toronto.

    Interestingly, Merrill is putting together a bit of a hot streak of late with a goal and two assists through his past four games. However, he's averaged just 19:04 per night with 36 seconds of power-play time during the stretch, and he has only 33 points over 182 career games. You'll want to aim higher in all fantasy settings.

    Devils' Jon Merrill: Will watch next game from press box

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/23/16) Merrill will be a healthy scratch Wednesday, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

    Merrill hasn't made much of an impact upon returning from a broken index finger Nov. 17 and following a 15-game layoff. In three matches, he's gone minus-2 without so much as a single shot between the posts. Yohann Auvitu, who is recovered from an upper-body injury, will replace Merrill in the lineup.

    Devils' Jon Merrill: Ready if needed

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/15/16) Merrill (finger) will be available for Tuesday's road game against the Stars, Chris Ryan of NJ.com reports.

    Merill is healthy after breaking his right index finger in the preseason, but he's no lock to play in the upcoming contest. "He's cleared to play, that's why he's practicing full and all of that," coach John Hynes said. "It's just whether we think he's ready to get into a game and face regular game action." If Merrill doesn't lace his skates for the upcoming tilt, Yohann Auvitu and Ben Lovejoy likely would remain on the third defensive pair.

    Devils' Jon Merrill: Traveling with team

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/14/16) Merrill (finger) will be with the team as they head out on a four-game road trip, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

    Merrill remains on injured reserve for now, but it is certainly a good sign that he is traveling with the team. The blueliner has yet to suit up for New Jersey this year, but would provide a significant defensive boost. Fantasy owners hard hit by injuries may want to give the 24-year-old a look once he is cleared to return, but beware his plus/minus rating. Look for the team to provide an update on Merrill once he is set to slot back into the lineup.

  • April 11, 2015: Devils' Merrill To Miss Finale
    Merrill (leg) will not play in Saturday's game against the Panthers, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.The Devils were quick to rule Merrill out after he was unable to take part in Saturday's morning skate, resulting in the blueliner missing his second straight game. Merrill will finish the season with two goals, 14 points, and a minus-14 rating over 66 games.
    April 9, 2015: New Jersey's Merrill Sidelined

    April 4, 2015: Devils' Merrill Breaks Point Skid
    Merrill assisted on Reid Boucher's second-period goal in Friday's shootout win over the Canadiens.After going all of March without recording a point, Merrill finally got back on the board with the helper. The 23-year-old is viewed as a valuable long-term asset on the Devils' blue line, but he's yet to find much success offensively in the NHL. Over 116 career games with the Devils, Merrill has accrued four goals and 21 assists.
