Zajac picked up an assist and two shots on goal in Friday's 4-2 win over the Blues.
Zajac's helper was just his second points in the last five games. The 34-year-old center has dropped off this season with 23 points in 67 appearances. He still has modest physicality (56 hits, 28 PIM), but he is nearly guaranteed to fall short of 40 points despite avoiding injuries throughout the year.
Zajac netted a goal on two shots in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Sharks.
Zajac got things going in the first period, snapping his personal five-game point drought with the goal. He's up to 22 points, 62 shots, 55 hits and a minus-10 rating through 63 outings this year.
Zajac managed an assist in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Hurricanes.
Zajac set up Mirco Mueller for a goal in the first period. The 34-year-old center has just two assists in his last 10 games, and he's now at 21 points and 57 shots through 57 contests overall. Zajac's in a top-six role more out of seniority than anything else -- his production doesn't match his deployment.
Zajac dished out a helper in Thursday's 5-0 win over the Flyers.
Zajac helped Blake Coleman open the scoring just 13 seconds in. The assist ended a five-game point drought, and the 34-year-old center has only one goal since Dec. 23, so Zajac's largely irrelevant in the fantasy landscape at this stage of his career.
Zajac scored a goal on two shots in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Lightning.
Zajac's tally at 9:54 of the second period would stand as the game-winner. The center has a goal and three helpers on a modest three-game point streak. Through 45 games this season, Zajac is at 17 points, 45 shots on goal and a minus-3 rating.
Zajac dished out a pair of assists in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Rangers.
Zajac notched his third multi-point game of the season but was still saddled with a minus-2 rating, which gives him a minus-5 mark over the past three games. There's not much juice left to be squeezed out of the 34-year-old center.
Zajac scored a shorthanded goal and added an assist, four hits and a plus-3 rating in Monday's 7-1 win over the Blackhawks.
Both of Zajac's contributions on the scoresheet came in the second period. He set up Damon Severson's tally before scoring a shorthanded goal of his own with Sami Vatanen serving a holding minor. Zajac is now at 12 points, 36 shots on goal and 42 hits through 36 contests. He's reached 40 points in three of the last four seasons, but the 34-year-old would need a big second half of the season to get to that level in 2019-20.
Zajac netted a goal on two shots in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Predators.
Zajac's tally capped a flurry of four goals in 3:13 between the two teams early in the first period. It was his first appearance on the scoresheet in the last five games. Zajac has just 10 points in 29 contests this season. He's posted 40-plus points in four of the last six campaigns, but he'll need to go on a tear to get anywhere near that mark in 2019-20.
Zajac contributed one hit as his only meaningful statistic in Thursday's 5-2 loss to Calgary, stretching his point drought to seven games.
Zajac is being deployed in a more defensive role -- he led all Devils forwards with 5:54 of penalty-kill time among his 15:26 overall. This shift in usage can likely be traced back to a natural erosion of Zajac's skills at age 34 -- he has just four points and eight shots through 14 games.
Zajac dished out an assist in 19:02 of ice time in Friday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Jets.
Zajac surprisingly tied for the team lead with 2:50 of power-play time, but New Jersey failed to connect with the man advantage. The role on the top extra-man unit is a boon to Zajac's value, though he's still a middling fantasy commodity at best considering he's 34 years old and hasn't hit the 50-point mark since 2009-10. Where Zajac's fantasy relevance lies is as an obstacle to a top-six role for rookie first overall pick Jack Hughes.
Zajac potted the power-play overtime winner in Saturday's 4-3 victory over Florida. He finishes the season with 19 goals and 46 points in 80 games.
Zajac hasn't eclipsed 50 points since scoring a career-high 67 back in 2009-10, but he's finished in the 42-48 range four times in the past six seasons. He's still locked in for two more years at a $5.75 million AAV, so the Devils will hope that age doesn't start to take effect on the veteran pivot, who will be 34 years old by the time the puck drops on the 2019-20 campaign.
Zajac scored a power-play goal and added an assist at even strength in Monday's 4-2 win over the Rangers.
It's his first goal in nine games, and first multi-point performance since mid-February. Zajac has been his usual self offensively this season, racking up 18 goals and 45 points through 78 games, but his dreadful minus-23 rating is by far a career worst -- he totaled a minus-21 over his previous seven seasons combined.
Zajac scored a power-play goal on his only shot in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Oilers.
Zajac has three goals and two helpers over his last seven appearances while holding down the top-line center job with Nico Hischier (upper body) out. Zajac has played in all situations this season, with nine of his 41 points coming on the power play and another two while shorthanded. He also won 13 of his 17 faceoffs.
Zajac scored while penalty killing in a 9-4 loss to the Flames on Tuesday.
Zajac's tally gave the Devils a 4-3 lead, but it didn't hold up against a six-goal onslaught in the third period by the Flames. Zajac is up to 40 points (16 goals, 24 helpers) in 68 games this season, the eighth time the center has hit that plateau. If fantasy owners can stomach his minus-18 rating, he's one of a few Devils worth rostering in most formats.
Zajac scored one goal on three shots over 21:30 of ice time in Tuesday's 1-2 shootout loss to the Blue Jackets.
Zajac scored the game-tying goal off a beautiful feed from Blake Coleman. Thanks to Coleman's shot fake, Zajac had a wide open net to hammer the puck into. The goal was the Manitoba native's 15th of the season through 65 games. In addition, Zajac was on the ice for 2:02 of power-play time, bringing his average to 2:32 of power-play ice time per game.
Zajac finished Sunday's 4-1 win over Buffalo with a pair of assists.
Zajac picked up both a primary and secondary assist in Sunday's win, giving the 33-year-old 34 points in 57 games this season. Zajac finished a plus-2 and also blocked a shot in the win.
Zajac put home his 13th goal of the season in a 5-2 loss to Chicago on Thursday.
The veteran is up to 32 points in 55 games, with Zajac's most recent goal coming while his team enjoyed a one-skater advantage. He'd gone six games without a point prior to scoring Thursday night, though it is worth noting that if the season ended today, Zajac's shooting percentage of 14.6 would represent a career high.
Zajac (undisclosed) will draw into Tuesday's lineup against the Kings, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Zajac was previously listed as a game-time decision, but it's already been determined that he will return to the lineup as a second-liner centering burgeoning skaters Miles Wood and Blake Coleman. The Devils eked out a 3-2 road win over the Canadiens without Zajac on Saturday, but the team will be even stronger now that the heady veteran is back in tow.
Zajac (undisclosed) could suit up Tuesday against the Kings, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Zajac skated Monday but is no sure thing to face Los Angeles. The 33-year-old tallied four points in a 6-3 win over Pittsburgh back on Jan. 29, and for the season has 31 points in 49 games. More information on his status should come prior to puck drop Tuesday.
Zajac (undisclosed) missed practice Friday and will not travel to Montreal for Saturday's matinee against the Canadiens, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Zajac picked up 21:04 of ice time in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Rangers, but he actually missed some shifts after taking a stick to his shins in the first period of that game. Losing Zajac for any amount of time really hurts a Devils club that relies on him so heavily in special teams situations. He'll be reevaluated ahead of Tuesday's home game against the Kings.
