  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Not playing Sunday

    Lazar (upper body) will not be available Sunday against Nashville and could miss extended time, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Lazar was injured Saturday against the Senators and logged just 6:38 of ice time with three hits and one shot. The 29-year-old has tallied seven goals and 25 points through 71 contests this season. It sounds like he'll miss at least a few games and is "likely" out for the remainder of the regular season. The team should have a clearer outlook on his status in the coming days.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Three-point burst in win

    Novak provided three assists, including an empty-net helper, in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Maple Leafs.

    After missing the last game with a lower-body injury, Lazar returned to his regular spot on the wing on the fourth line being centered by Chris Tierney. Although he only played 9:19 of ice time, Lazar produced a three-point game, his first of the season. He also finished with four hits and a plus-3 rating. The 29-year-old winger only has 24 points on the year and with his limited ice time, he is hard to trust as a fantasy starter.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Set to return

    Lazar (lower body) is expected to return to the lineup Tuesday versus the Maple Leafs, per Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Goal drought hits 23 games

    Lazar's goal drought extended to 23 games as he finished with one shot and two hits in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Lazar hasn't found the back of the net since a two-goal outburst against the Golden Knights on Jan. 22, and a rematch with Vegas didn't alleviate his scoring woes. He came into this game with a helper in each of his previous two outings, but that modest point streak came to a close Sunday and was preceded by 11 games without a point. Overall, Lazar has just six goals and 21 points in 63 appearances.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Puts up helper

    Lazar posted an assist, four shots on goal and two hits in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Predators.

    Lazar snapped a six-game slump with the primary assist on Timo Meier's go-ahead goal in the third period. Lazar has regularly served as the third-line center lately, though it hasn't translated to improved performances on offense. The 29-year-old has 17 points, 49 shots on net, 113 hits and a plus-13 rating through 47 appearances, putting him on track for a career year.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Good for two goals in overtime win

    Lazar scored two goals in Monday's 6-5 overtime win against the Golden Knights.

    Lazar buried both of his shot attempts, and he finished with a plus-2 rating as well as a blocked shot in 12:53 of ice time across 20 shifts. It wasn't all great, as he lost all three of his faceoff chances, but fantasy managers aren't likely complaining too vehemently. He snapped a 21-game goal drought dating back to Nov. 28, although he does have a respectable six points in 10 appearances in January.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Good to play Wednesday

    Lazar (lower body) is available for Wednesday's game against Washington, according to Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.

    Lazar is drawing back into the lineup after missing three straight games. He has four goals, 10 points, 57 hits and 25 blocks in 30 outings with New Jersey in 2023-24. Lazar's return is particularly timely because coach Lindy Ruff suggested some of New Jersey's forwards are questionable for Wednesday's contest, though he didn't specify who specifically might miss the game.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Won't play Saturday

    Lazar (lower body) isn't ready to return Saturday versus Boston, per Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.

    Lazar also missed the Devils' previous two contests. He has four goals, 10 points, 57 hits and 25 blocks in 30 games this season. When Lazar is healthy, he'll likely serve in a bottom-six capacity.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Game-time decision Friday

    Lazar (undisclosed) is expected to be a game-time decision Friday in Ottawa, according to Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.

    Lazar sat out Wednesday against Columbus as he was "banged up" according to coach Lindy Ruff. Ruff said that he will see how Lazar is feeling after the morning skate, which will determine whether or not the winger will return to the lineup Friday. Lazar has four goals, six assists, 16 PIM, 25 blocked shots and 57 hits this season in 30 contests.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Is day-to-day

    Lazar, who is banged up, is expected to miss Wednesday's game against Columbus and will be regarded as day-to-day beyond that, coach Lindy Ruff told Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.

    Lazar has four goals, 10 points, 16 PIM, 57 hits and 25 blocks in 30 outings this year. He's not expected to be out for long, so perhaps Lazar will even be an option Friday versus Ottawa. In the meantime, defenseman Brendan Smith might serve as a forward Wednesday.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Nabs helper

    Lazar posted an assist in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Canucks.

    Lazar has earned three points over his last four games despite filling a bottom-six role in that span. He played up the lineup at times when the Devils were missing forwards due to injuries. The 28-year-old has eight points, 22 shots on net, 47 hits, 19 blocked shots and a plus-5 rating through 21 appearances. Lazar could challenge his career high of 20 points from 2015-16 if he remains a regular in the lineup.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Pots GWG against Isles

    Lazar scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 victory over the Islanders.

    The 28-year-old journeyman tapped a rebound past Ilya Sorokin with just 23 seconds left in regulation to complete a comeback from a 4-2 deficit. Lazar is playing for his sixth NHL team in 10 seasons, but he could be headed for a career-best campaign in New Jersey with four goals and seven points through 18 games -- he's never scored more than eight goals (set in 2021-22 with Boston) or 20 points (set in 2015-16 with Ottawa) before.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Not playing Saturday

    Lazar was deemed a game-time decision after exiting early Friday versus the Blue Jackets. The 28-year-old will ultimately miss a game, and it may be more difficult for him to get into the lineup going forward because Nico Hischier (upper body) is set to return to action Saturday. Lazar has chipped in three goals, five points, 19 shots on net, 18 blocked shots and 37 hits in 17 appearances this season.

    Lazar scored a goal and added an assist in a 5-2 win over the Penguins on Thursday.

    His goal came shorthanded.

After going eight games without a point, Lazar has five points, including three goals, and 10 shots in his last six games.
