  • Devils' Michael McLeod: Scores 20 points

    McLeod racked up six goals and 14 assists over 77 appearances in 2021-22.

    McLeod reached the 20-point mark for the first time, though his goal total was disappointing after he lit the lamp nine times in just 52 games the previous season. He worked primarily as the fourth-line center for the Devils this season, and McLeod's likely to remain in that role next year.

    McLeod helped out on goals by Jesper Bratt and Damon Severson in this contest. This was McLeod's third multi-point effort of the season. The 24-year-old center is still stuck in a 26-game goal drought, but he's up to 18 points, 75 shots on net, 130 hits, 48 PIM and a minus-14 rating through 70 appearances. He'll likely continue to log bottom-six minutes as he has for much of the campaign.

  • Devils' Michael McLeod: Big role on penalty kill

    McLeod had two shots and four hits in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Rangers.

    McLeod's more valuable to the Devils than he is in fantasy, as the fourth-line center brings sound defensive play and some physicality to the table. He led all New Jersey forwards with 3:26 of shorthanded TOI in this one but remains stuck on 15 points, which is tied with last season's output for McLeod's career high.

  • Devils' Michael McLeod: Nets goal Thursday

    McLeod scored a goal and added two PIM in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Blues.

    With three goals in his last two games, McLeod is making an impact from the fourth line. His tally Thursday came at 15:07 of the first period. The 24-year-old center has 14 points, 52 shots on net, 90 hits, 28 PIM and a minus-1 rating in 44 contests overall in his second season as a regular in the Devils' lineup.

  • Devils' Michael McLeod: Leads charge in blowout win

    McLeod potted two goals in Tuesday's 7-1 win in Montreal.

    McLeod scored the first and fifth goals of New Jersey's seven-goal onslaught, as the Devils beat up on the league-worst Montreal defense to snap a seven-game losing streak. The 24-year-old center has just 14 goals in 128 career games, but this was actually the second multi-goal game of McLeod's career, as he lit the lamp twice in Buffalo on Jan. 31 of last year. His fourth-line role on a rebuilding Devils team will continue to keep McLeod off the fantasy radar in most formats.

  • Devils' Michael McLeod: Cleared to play Monday

    McLeod (undisclosed) has been given the green light to play in Monday's clash with Ottawa, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    With Jack Hughes landing in the league's COVID-19 protocols, McLeod's return to the lineup is well-timed, though he's far from a one-for-one replacement. Still, the 24-year-old McLeod has put together a decent start to the year with 11 points in 41 games this year and should be in line to reach the 20-point mark for the first time in his NHL career.

    McLeod scored a goal on four shots, levied five hits and added four PIM in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Red Wings.

  • Devils' Michael McLeod: Fills empty cage

    McLeod scored an empty-net goal on three shots and added four hits in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Flyers.

    McLeod sealed the Devils' victory, not that the insurance was needed. It's a positive sign for the 23-year-old, as it was his first goal of the year and could get him going on offense. McLeod has five points, 32 shots, 47 hits, 11 PIM and a minus-5 rating in 24 contests overall.

  • Devils' Michael McLeod: Nabs apple in loss

    McLeod recorded an assist and three hits in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Wild. He also won 14 of 19 faceoffs.

    McLeod helped out on a Ryan Graves goal in the second period. The 23-year-old McLeod also had a good game at the dot, and he's now won 60.3 percent of his faceoffs this season. That strong work should keep him in the lineup fairly regularly, though he's added just four helpers, 27 shots on net, 33 hits and a minus-6 rating in 21 contests this year.

  • Devils' Michael McLeod: Posts assist Sunday

    McLeod notched an assist and two hits in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.

    McLeod helped out on Nathan Bastian's tally in the third period. The 23-year-old McLeod snapped an eight-game point drought with the assist, his third of the year. The center has yet to score a goal in 19 contests, adding 24 shots on net, 25 hits and a minus-3 rating in a bottom-six role. His lack of offense could see him end up as a healthy scratch once Jack Hughes (shoulder) is cleared to return.

  • Devils' Michael McLeod: Generates helper in win

    McLeod logged an assist, three hits and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Sharks.

    McLeod helped out on Ryan Graves' goal in the second period. It's been a poor start to the season for McLeod, who has just two helpers, a minus-3 rating and 15 shots on net in 10 contests. He's added 15 hits and nine PIM to provide some grit, but the slow scoring pace has seen him play lower in the lineup, which limits his appeal in fantasy.

  • Devils' Michael McLeod: Off to slow start

    McLeod posted a minus-1 rating over 16:31 of ice time in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to Columbus.

    New Jersey's first-round selection in 2016 solidified his role in the NHL with nine goals and six assists over 52 games last season, but he posted a minus-12 rating on a Devils team that languished near the bottom of the standings. New Jersey's hoping to be more competitive this year, but the jury's still out on whether that will be the case. The bottom-six center's off to a slow start, with just one helper and a minus-4 rating through seven games.

  • Devils' Michael McLeod: Pens two-year pact

    McLeod signed a two-year, $1.9 million contract with New Jersey on Thursday.

    McLeod finally broke into the NHL with consistency this year, as he appeared in 52 games for the Devils in which he recorded nine goals, six assists and 60 shots while averaging 13:49 of ice time. The 23-year-old center figures to remain a mainstay in New Jersey's bottom six this year and could even challenge for the 25-point mark with a full 82-game season.
