Hischier dished out an assist to go with two shots, a plus-2 rating and 10 PIM in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over Florida. He finishes the season with 17 goals and 47 points in 69 games. Hischier couldn't stay injury-free like he did as a rookie, leading to a slight downturn in his overall numbers. Sophomore slumps aren't an uncommon occurrence, so there's a good chance the first overall selection from the 2017 draft will be a bit undervalued come next season.
Hischier recorded four shots on goal over 21:08 of ice time and 6:44 of power-play time in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Arizona. Saturday's action marked the first for Hischier since missing nine games to an upper-body injury. While the 20-year-old was unable to record any points, he was able to log the most power-play ice time in a game this season. Hischier has 44 points (17 goals, 27 assists) over 63 games this season.
Hischier (upper body) will play Saturday against the Coyotes, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports. The Devils reportedly will get Hischier and an additional four skaters back in tow against Arizona. Let it be known that the Devils start at 1:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, so if you want to use Hischier -- who, this season, has accumulated 17 goals and 27 assists over 62 games -- setting daily lineups early is strongly advised.
Hischier (upper body) participated in practice Friday, but his status for Saturday's game against Arizona remains in question, Chris Ryan of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Hischier has missed the last nine games with this injury. If the 20-year-old doesn't play Saturday, his next opportunity to slot back into the lineup would be Monday against Buffalo. If Hischier misses more time, fantasy owners could look to Pavel Zacha -- who just returned from an upper-body injury of his own -- as a replacement.
Hischier (upper body) isn't in the projected lineup for Thursday's game against the Bruins, per Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site. The Devils will get Pavel Zacha (upper body) back in the lineup versus the B's, and with any luck to New Jersey, that will somewhat mitigate the continued absence of Hischier, who sits at 44 points (17 goals, 27 assists) through 62 games this season.
