  • Devils' Jon Merrill: Re-signs with the Devils for two years

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/16) Merrill signed a two-year, $2.275 million contract with the Devils, reports TSN.ca.

    The defender will make $1 million in 2016-17 and $1.275 million in 2017-18. Merrill's season ended after just 47 games last year because of a bad shoulder injury and subsequent surgery. He isn't known for his offensive prowess; instead, he's a physical presence for the Devils. But he struggles in a possession game -- his Corsi hasn't been great. The next couple seasons will be Merrill's opportunity to earn a long-term deal.

    Devils' Jon Merrill: Under goes shoulder surgery

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/25/16) Merrill (shoulder) had surgery to fix the shoulder injury that ended his season prematurely, Dhiren Mahiban of The New York Times reports.

    Merrill missed the last 10 games of the year, his second lengthy absence during the 2015-16 campaign. With a four month recovery time, the blueliner should be good to go for the start of next season. Considering he tallied a meager five points in 47 contests, fantasy owners are unlikely to start clamoring for the 24-year-old.

    Devils' Jon Merrill: Officially done for season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/4/16) Merrill has been officially ruled out for the remainder of the season due to a shoulder injury, Tom Guliitti of The Record reports.

    Not much of fantasy prospect, the absence of Merrill shouldn't be noticed in the majority of leagues. He will now turn his focuses to being healthy for 2016-17, and considering his issue isn't expected to hold him out too long, it shouldn't factor into his availability. The blueliner finishes the campaign with just five points and 30 shots on goal over 47 games, adding 48 hits and 54 blocked shots.

    Devils' Jon Merrill: May be done for season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/1/16) Coach John Hynes indicated Friday that Merrill (upper body) is "still banged up" and will likely miss the remainder of the season, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

    If this indeed ends his campaign, the blueliner will finish with a paltry five points (one goal, four assists) over 47 games. A member of a lacking offensive club, the 2010 second-round pick hasn't topped 14 points in his three NHL seasons, and there's nothing to suggest he will gain fantasy relevance in the future. Expect another update before the season's end only if he's able to return prior to its conclusion.

    Devils' Jon Merrill: Couple weeks from return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/16) Merrill (upper body) remains a couple weeks from a potential return to the lineup, Rich Chere of The Star-Ledger reports.

    An owner of just five points through 47 games this season, Merrill's status should intrigue little-to-no fantasy leagues. A couple weeks rules out the blueliner towards the end of the regular season, but expect a refreshed status when he's fit to play.

  • April 11, 2015: Devils' Merrill To Miss Finale

Merrill will finish the season with two goals, 14 points, and a minus-14 rating over 66 games.

    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.
