Wood (hip) will not play again this season. Due to multiple injuries and surgery back in November, Wood only played in three games in 2021-22, failing to record a point. The 26-year-old hasn't been given a return timetable for his current hip issue, but with training camp over five months away, it seems likely he'll be ready by then.
Wood (hip) won't travel with the team for its upcoming five-game road trip, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports. Since they're clearly out of the playoff picture, the Devils are likely just being extra cautious with Wood, who recently returned to action after undergoing hip surgery in November. Wood will likely continue to have his workload managed down the stretch.
Wood (hip) is expected back in the lineup versus the Rangers on Tuesday, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports. Wood has been limited to just two games this season in which he recorded two shots, four PIM and three hits while averaging 14:02 of ice time. With both Jack Hughes (lower body) and Nathan Bastian (undisclosed) banged up, the 26-year-old Wood is slated to take on a first-line role versus the Devils and is capable of offering top-half fantasy value.
Wood (hip) will not play Sunday against the Islanders, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports. Wood will miss a second straight game with the hip issue. He had only played in two contests following a 65-game absence due to hip surgery, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the 26-year-old shut down for the remainder of the campaign given the circumstances. Look for another update once a return date becomes clear.
Wood (hip) won't play Saturday versus Florida, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports. Wood recently made his season debut after missing the first 65 games of the campaign while recovering from hip surgery, so the Devils are proceeding with caution to avoid overworking the 26-year-old winger as they reintegrate him into the lineup. Wood could slot back into the lineup as soon as Sunday versus the Islanders.
