Hischier scored a goal on three shots and added two blocked shots in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Ducks. Hischier's marker at 13:56 of the third period produced the final score. It was the Swiss center's first point in six games -- consistency continues to be a struggle for Hischier. He's up to 14 markers, 34 points, 113 shots and a minus-13 rating in 54 contests this season.
Hischier (knee) had an assist and logged 17:48 of playing time Sunday in a 4-3 shootout win over Columbus. Hischier was back in the lineup after a six-game absence and picked up an assist on Kyle Palmieri's go-ahead goal in the second period. He extended his point streak to five games (three goals, four assists) and will be asked to carry even more of the offensive load following Sunday's trade of Blake Coleman to Tampa Bay. Hischier has 13 goals and 20 assists in 47 games.
Hischier (knee) will return to the lineup for Sunday's game against Columbus, Chris Ryan of NJ.com reports. Hischier has missed the past six games while tending to the knee issue but was finally cleared to play. The 21-year-old will be a huge addition to the lineup, as prior to getting injured, he was riding a three-game point streak. Hischier is expected to assume his top-line center role for the game between Kyle Palmieri and Jesper Bratt.
Hischier (knee) hopes to rejoin the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jackets, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports. The news effectively rules Hischier out for Friday's contest against the Hurricanes, but it appears the 21-year-old pivot's stay on the shelf is nearing its end. Nicholas Merkley for John Hayden is the only change up front for the Devils on Friday, but more could be on the way when the team returns home for Sunday's tilt.
Hischier (knee) is in line to miss another game Thursday versus the Red Wings, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports. Hischier appears destined for a fifth consecutive absence Thursday, and it wouldn't be surprising if another absence awaits Friday given the 24-hour turnaround between games. He was at least on the ice with the team during Wednesday's practice, which marks a step in the right direction after he skated before Monday's practice session.
