  • Devils' Janne Kuokkanen: Misses road trip

    Kuokkanen (wrist) stayed back in New Jersey when the team left on its three-game road trip, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Prior to getting hurt, the 23-year-old Finn was mired in a 13-game goal drought during which he registered just 17 shots and four assists. Once cleared to return, Kuokkanen should be in the mix for a bottom-six role.

  • Devils' Janne Kuokkanen: Adds goal in Devils' win

    Kuokkanen chipped in a goal in the Devils' 6-5 overtime win over the Oilers on Friday.

    Kuokkanen scored his second goal in his last three games with the one-timer Friday, giving him five on the season. After getting the puck out of his own zone on defense, the 23-year-old zipped a slapshot over the glove of Edmonton goalie Mike Smith to give New Jersey a 4-3 lead with 14:46 remaining in the third period. The lefty-shooting left winger now has two goals across his last three games, snapping a seven-game pointless streak in the process. Kuokkanen has struggled offensively this season. Through 30 games this season he has added just two assists and seven total points. This comes a year after he quietly emerged with eight goals and 17 assists across 50 contests.

The Finn has just six points, 25 shots on net, 19 hits and a minus-7 rating in 28 contests -- his lackluster offense has occasionally earned him a trip to the press box as a healthy scratch this year.

  • Devils' Janne Kuokkanen: Pockets assist

    Kuokkanen registered an assist Friday in an 8-4 loss to the Jets.

    Kuokkanen is a third-liner on a Devils team that appears committed to his development. The Finn was originally drafted by the Hurricanes in the second round (No. 43 overall) of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, but the 'Canes decided he was expendable and sent him packing in February 2020. Kuokkanen has 11 goals and 19 assists through 72 career contests with the Devils; he's shown flashes of potential to suggest that he may gain traction in fantasy hockey in the coming years.

  • Devils' Janne Kuokkanen: Forces overtime Saturday

    Kuokkanen scored a goal on two shots and added two PIM in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Sharks.

    Kuokkanen tallied with 2:56 left in regulation, and the Devils completed the comeback win in the shootout. The 23-year-old winger has struggled with consistency, logging three points, 11 shots on net and a plus-1 rating in 10 contests. The Finn has dropped into a bottom-six role in recent games, with the absence of Jack Hughes (shoulder) eroding most of Kuokkanen's burgeoning fantasy value from early in the season.
