Simmonds (lower body) signed a one-year, $5 million contract with the Devils on Monday.
Simmonds has grown familiar with the Metropolitan Division from his extensive time in Philadelphia, and he'll go back to hounding those same opponents while bringing a combination of skill and snarl to New Jersey. The power forward recorded only 30 points between the Flyers and Predators last season, as his point total dropped for the third consecutive campaign. Even if he's a little past his prime, Simmonds is still an expert at screening the goaltender and digging for rebounds, which makes him a useful weapon on the power play.
Simmonds (lower body) won't be retained by the Predators in free agency, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.
Vingan had no update on the lower-body injury that cut Simmonds' time with the Predators short after he was acquired as a rental at the trade deadline. The injury shouldn't curtail interest in the veteran power forward, who can still bring a nice mix of skill and net-front presence. Nashville won't be among his suitors in free agency, even though the team has plenty of cap room after shipping out P.K. Subban's $9 million AAV to New Jersey at the draft.
Simmonds (lower body) wasn't able to overcome his injury prior to the Predators getting bounced from the playoffs.
Simmonds missed the final four games of the series after getting hurt early in Game 2. The winger managed just three points in 17 contests with Nashville after making the move to the Music City at the trade deadline. The 30-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason and will likely have a handful of suitors looking to add a gritty, bottom-six veteran.
Simmonds (lower body) will not play in Monday's Game 6 road tilt against the Stars, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

Simmonds (lower body) wasn't on the ice for warmups ahead of Saturday's Game 5 against the Stars, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports.
While Simmons has effectively been ruled out for the latest playoff contest, the fact that his status came down to warmups suggests that he may not be all that far away from a return. It's not all doom and gloom for the Predators in the way of injuries, though, as Rocco Grimaldi (undisclosed) is set to return.
Simmonds (lower body) will not play in Monday's game against Dallas and is considered "week-to-week".
Simmonds left Saturday's Game 2 in the first period and didn't return after he took a shot to the leg. The fact that he's considered week-to-week casts serious doubt on his availability for Game's 4 and 5 respectively. With Simmonds out of the lineup, Miikka Salomaki (upper body) could take his place.
Coach Peter Laviolette has no updates on Simmonds (leg) following the team's 2-1 overtime win over the Stars on Saturday, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Simmonds (leg) returned to Saturday's Game 2 versus the Stars, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.
Simmonds left in the first period after taking teammate Roman Josi's shot off his leg, but he returned to action midway through the second frame. This is a huge sigh of relief for Nashville fans, as Simmonds will bolster the team's bottom-six depth.
Simmonds exited Game 2 versus the Stars on Saturday with a leg injury, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.
Simmonds took Roman Josi's shot off of his lower leg, and he immediately went to the locker room without putting pressure on his leg. The 30-year-old didn't return for the start of the second period, so it's unlikely he returns to this contest. Look for an update on his condition after the game, as the Predators travel to Dallas for Game 3 on Monday.
Simmonds scored his 17th goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Maple Leafs.
He couldn't have asked for an easier scoring chance, as Ryan Ellis found him at the side of a wide-open net with a perfect pass from the opposite half wall. It's Simmonds first goal, and only his second point, in nine games since the trade that brought him to Nashville, but with the weight of that slump off his shoulders, the rugged winger might be able to build some scoring momentum heading into the postseason.
Simmonds has only one assist in five appearances since being traded to the Predators.
The winger was one of two big-name deadline day acquisitions for Nashville, but he's had difficulty finding his way in Nashville. Over five games with the team, he has six shots on goal and eight hits while skating to a plus-3 rating. His goal drought has carried over from his Flyers tenure, stretching to 15 games after the cage proved evasive for Simmonds in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Hurricanes.

Simmonds may be bogged down in a 10-game goal drought, but the veteran winger is a solid depth-scoring addition for the Preds. The 30-year-old could also join one of Nashville's power-play units, as he was averaging 3:01 of ice time and notched eight points with the man advantage in Philadelphia.
Simmonds missed the latest practice, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports. He's expected to be traded by Monday's trade deadline.
Look for Simmonds to be dealt before the 3 p.m. ET deadline, as Shannon reported Sunday that the physical scoring winger has likely played his final game as a Flyer. Simmonds has compiled 471 points (242 goals, 229 assists) over 824 games between the Kings and Flyers, and he checks all the boxes defenisvely.
The Flyers confirmed that Simmonds likely has played his last game for the team, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.
Although nothing's set in stone since the team needs a worthy offer for Simmonds' services, he's expected to be with another club by Monday's trade deadline. The 30-year-old has played eight years with the Flyers and will become an unrestricted free agent this summer. He has 27 points in 62 games and adds a physical presence with 113 hits and 90 PIM in that span. His offensive production is regressing while his defensive game isn't promising with a minus-20 rating this season, but a contender could still use him to bolster its top nine.
Simmonds notched two assists in Saturday's 6-5 overtime win over the Red Wings.
He also chipped in a shot, three hits, a blocked shot and a plus-2 rating. The rugged winger is having his usual season, racking up 16 goals and 27 points in 58 games, and Simmonds has already reached triple-digits in hits for the sixth straight season and the 10th time in his 11-year career.

Simmonds contributed with the game-tying power-play marker about halfway through the third period. He has four goals in the last 10 games, but Simmonds is still behind his usual scoring pace, and it's because power-play goals haven't been easy to come by for him this season. Simmonds has 16 goals, only five of which have come with the man advantage, and 24 points through 52 games in 2018-19.
Simmonds scored a pair of goals and recorded a plus-3 rating in a 7-4 victory against the Wild on Monday.
The Flyers' third line was absolutely on fire, as it scored three times, two of which were Simmonds' markers. Owners should definitely keep an eye on this unit, but the Flyers have been too inconsistent to say they have definitely turned the corner with this one performance. Simmonds has a respectable 15 goals but only six assists, giving him 21 points with a minus-12 rating in 46 contests this season.
Simmonds delivered a power-play goal in Thursday's 5-3 home loss to the Hurricanes.
