Rooney had two assists and two shots with a team-leading five hits in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over Columbus. Rooney drew the primary helper on each of New Jersey's first two goals, giving him his first multi-point game of the year.

Rooney (illness) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's clash with the Capitals, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

The 26-year-old pivot has only notched one helper in 13 games this campaign, so his return to action will undoubtedly go unnoticed in fantasy circles.
