Moore scored his 10th goal of the year in overtime Tuesday -- the only tally in a 1-0 win over the Flyers. Moore had been held off the scoresheet for five straight games coming in. His offensive contributions haven't exactly been impressive, but Moore's into double digits in the goal column for the first time in his career. That's something for him to build on as he and the Devils look to next season.
Moore scored both of the Devils' goals -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Leafs. Just 26 years old, Moore is one of the younger veteran journeymen you'll ever see, as he's already playing in his seventh NHL season for his fourth NHL franchise. Those veteran wiles are apparently paying off to some degree, as he's now tied his career high in points (19), and with nine goals, he actually has a legit chance to crack double digits for the first time. Playing for the Devils does his fantasy value no favors, but he's shown enough for us to keep him in mind down the line.
Moore scored his seventh goal of the season while recording a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 5-4 loss against the Coyotes. Moore posted just one point over six games in February and he has just one point through six outings in March. He isn't producing much in the way of offense this season. Unless he finds his way back onto the power play he doesn't warrant much in the way of fantasy consideration.
Moore (concussion) will rejoin the lineup for Sunday's game against the Sharks, Chris Ryan of NJ.com,/a> reports. Moore suggested that he's got no hesitations about being hit. "I'm definitely going to approach it by keeping my game simple. Try and get a hit early," Moore told NJ Advance Media. "I definitely don't have any reservations in my mind about getting hit. I feel like I'm stronger than I was when I went down." The blueliner's had a decent season for the Devils when healthy, totaling 13 points (five goals, eight assists) over 37 games. His minus-6 rating isn't surprising given that he plays for a team with a minus-27 goal differential on the season. He may slot in alongside Steve Santini in Sunday's pairings and is a likely candidate to rejoin the second unit on New Jersey's man advantage.
Moore (concussion) will not suit up against the Sabres on Monday, Andrew Gross of The Record reports. According to coach John Hynes, Moore will need some additional ice time at practice before he is given the all clear to return. The defenseman has yet to get into a game in 2017, as he has now missed 16 straight with this concussion. With injuries piling up on the Devils blue line, Karl Stollery will replace the 26-year-old Moore for the time being. The Illinois native should have plenty of time to practice as New Jersey prepare to kick off their bye week on Tuesday.
