  • Golden Knights' Jon Merrill: Nabbed by Golden Knights

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/21/17) Merrill has been selected by the Vegas Golden Knights in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.

    Another mobile, puck-moving defenseman for the Golden Knights. Merrill was a big-time prospect coming out of the University of Michigan, but he had a rough go of it during his four years with the Devils. Merrill has just 36 points in 216 career NHL contests, but he has more talent than those numbers would indicate. Perhaps he will finally put it all together in the desert. Fantasy owners should take a wait-and-see approach before picking him up this fall.

    Devils' Jon Merrill: Picks up assist in Friday's loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/18/17) Merrill posted an assist with two blocked shots, a minor penalty and a hit in Friday's 6-4 loss against the Penguins.

    Merrill snapped a 12-game scoreless drought dating back to Feb. 18. He was impressive at the offensive end during his time with the University of Michigan, but he has not yet found his rhythm at the offensive end in the NHL so far. Merrill's not a recommended fantasy option outside of the very deepest of pools until further notice.

    Devils' Jon Merrill: Returning Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/14/17) Merrill (upper body) will be in the lineup for Tuesday's tilt with Colorado, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

    Merrill missed New Jersey's last four games with the injury, and will take Seth Helgeson's spot on the blueline. Despite showing some offensive upside while playing for the University of Michigan, this potential hasn't translated to production at the NHL level. Merrill has scored just six goals and 34 points over his 192-game NHL career, and doesn't seem like he'll become a reliable fantasy asset at any point in the near future.

    Devils' Jon Merrill: Given better timetable for return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/11/17) Merrill (upper body) is expected to return some time this week, said Devils coach John Hynes, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

    The blueliner is currently on injured reserve, but should add a nice blend of defensive stats for fantasy owners upon his return; just don't expect the world as he's averaged 18:37 of ice time, and that would only be an impressive figure for a forward.

    Devils' Jon Merrill: Placed on injured reserve

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/2/17) Merrill (upper body) was placed on injured reserve by the Devils on Thursday retroactive to Jan. 31.

    Merrill has already been ruled out for the team's next two contests and remains without a definitive timetable for return, so his placement on injured reserve shouldn't come as much of a surprise. The move opens up a roster spot for Andy Greene's (upper body) activation off injured reserve ahead of Friday's contest against the Flames. More information should arrive when he's nearing a return to the lineup. With the team on a bye next week, the earliest he can return comes Feb. 12 against the Sharks.
