Maltsev supplied a goal on his only shot in a 3-2 loss to Washington on Sunday. Inserted into the lineup in place of the injured Nico Hischier (face), Maltsev opened the scoring 6:45 into the game with a snap shot from the top of the right faceoff circle. The 22-year-old has only been in the lineup on five occasions in 2020-21, but he's managed to light the lamp in two of his last four.
Maltsev was promoted to the active roster and will play in Sunday's game versus the Capitals. Nico Hischier (face) will sit out, so Maltsev will enter the lineup. He's expected to handle a bottom-six role. The 22-year-old has played four NHL games this year, providing a goal on 10 shots.
Maltsev was reassigned to New Jersey's taxi squad Tuesday. Maltsev has been in the lineup for four of the Devils' last five games, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him back on the active roster soon, though it's safe to assume he won't be available for Tuesday's game versus the Sabres. He's potted one goal in his four appearances this year.
The Devils reassigned Maltsev to the active roster Sunday. Maltsev didn't suit up in Saturday's loss to Buffalo, but as evidenced by this news, he could return to the lineup for Sunday's game against Washington. In three games this season, the 22-year-old has one assist, seven shots, four hits and a plus-2 rating. Maltsev replaced Yegor Sharangovich on the active roster.
Maltsev was assigned to New Jersey's taxi squad Friday. This is just the daily roster shuffle for the Devils, as Maltsev is fully expected to rejoin the active roster ahead of Saturday's game against the Sabres.
