Zacha recorded an assist and went plus-2 in Friday's 4-2 win over the Blues. Zacha set up Joey Anderson for the insurance tally into an empty-net at 19:03 of the third period. The 22-year-old Zacha has a career-high 31 points, including seven on the power play and another four shorthanded, in 63 contests. He's added 97 shots and 58 hits this season.
Zacha scored a pair of power-play goals in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Ducks. The two goals were Zacha's first scores in 11 games -- he had five assists in that stretch. The Czech center is up to eight markers, 30 points and 94 shots through 61 appearances this year. A first-round pick from 2015, Zacha could be set for a larger role with the rebuilding Devils -- fantasy owners in deeper formats may want to take notice.
Zacha collected two power-play assists in a 4-1 win over Detroit on Tuesday. With only five power-play points in all of 2019-20, Zucha's pair of special-teams tallies were his first in the month of February. Through 58 games, Zacha's 28 points represent a personal best for the 22-year-old center. As part of a rebuilding team, the young forward could see more opportunities down the stretch of this year and into next, so put Zacha on your watch list for 2020-21.
Zacha recorded two assists in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Red Wings. Zacha assisted on New Jersey's first two goals, which started a stretch of four goals in four minutes to turn a 1-0 third-period deficit into a 4-1 advantage. The sixth overall selection from the 2015 draft has largely underperformed his lofty draft status, but Zacha's put together a strong stretch over the last seven games, with three goals and four assists.
Zacha scored two goals and added an assist Thursday in a 6-5 shootout loss to Nashville. Talk about bonus points Thursday -- one goal came on the power play while the other came shorthanded. And the helper was a PPA. Zacha hadn't scored a goal since Dec. 23 and he had just two helpers in his previous 12 games. Nice game, but it's hard to activate a guy who goes so long without production.
