Athanasiou logged a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Friday's 3-2 overtime win over the Devils.

Athanasiou helped out on Arthur Kaliyev's third-period tally. The 27-year-old Athanasiou missed 10 games with an undisclosed injury to begin the year, and he began Friday's contest on the fourth line, though he ultimately logged 16:07 of ice time. The Ontario native will likely challenge for a second-line job eventually. He produced 23 points, 85 shots on net and a minus-6 rating in 47 contests last year in a similar role.
