Wood racked up 14 PIM in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over Florida. He finishes the season with 10 goals, 24 points and 91 PIM in 63 games. The 23-year-old power forward took a step back as a scorer after recording 19 goals and 32 points last season, perhaps feeling the negative effects of a contract holdout. Wood still finished between 84 and 91 PIM for a third consecutive campaign despite missing 19 games, and he should continue to make an impact in leagues that reward trips to the sin bin moving forward.
Wood recorded an assist and four shots on goal in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Coyotes. Wood came out strong in his first game back after missing 12 games with an ankle issue. He's missed 19 games since the start of January with various injuries, limiting him to 22 points in 57 games this season.
Wood (ankle) will return to action versus the Coyotes on Saturday, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports. Wood emerges from a 12-game injury layoff, and he won't be returning to a makeshift lineup, either. Kyle Palmieri (undisclosed) and Nico Hischier (upper body) will be back in tow as well to bolster the top six and take some of the pressure off the former. Wood has compiled eight goals and 13 assists through 56 games this season, though he's gone against the grain defensively based on a minus-9 rating.
Wood (ankle) won't play Thursday against the Bruins, per Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site. Wood's next chance to play will arrive Saturday for a home game against the Coyotes.
Wood (ankle) won't be ready Tuesday against the Capitals, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports. Wood is said to be the closest to a return among a throng of other Devils forwards, but Thursday's game against the Bruins is the soonest Wood will return. This team is out of playoff contention and will probably want to give its most talented skaters from AHL Binghamton a look anyway.
