  • Devils' Sami Vatanen: Will play Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11:26 am ET) Vatanen (illness) will rejoin the lineup for Saturday's game against the Coyotes, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

    With Vatanen and Mirco Mueller (shoulder) both among the mass returners for the Devils, Egor Yakovlev and Joshua Jacobs will both take a seat Saturday. It's been a down year offensively for Vatanen in 2018-19, owning just 17 points through 49 games after posting 28 over 57 last season, and his rating has gone with the offense (minus-17). He still contributes enough to warrant fantasy ownership in some formats and the blueliner's offensive history should buy him some credit.

    Devils' Sami Vatanen: Facing another absence

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/19) Vatanen (illness) isn't in Thursday's lineup against the Bruins, per Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.

    Vatanen must be dealing with a rather significant malady for it to have cost him nine games and counting. With the defenseman compiling 171 points (40 goals, 131 assists) through 386 career contests between the Ducks and Devils, it's easy to see why select owners would be reluctant to drop him, but the lingering malady is doing nothing but hogging a valuable roster spot around fantasy playoff time.

    Devils' Sami Vatanen: Remains sidelined Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/19/19) Vatanen (illness) will not return to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Capitals, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Vatanen has been sidelined by a bug since March 2 and there's no clear timeframe yet for when he may return to the lineup. His absence from morning skate Tuesday suggests he may not be that close, though it may only require him participating once to return, given the nature of his absence.

    Devils' Sami Vatanen: Skipping road trip

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/12/19) Vatanen (illness) didn't join the Devils as they embarked on a four-game road trip beginning Tuesday in Calgary, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Vatanen's absence from the initial departure from New Jersey likely positions him to miss all four contests on the trip, barring the blueliner joining the team at another destination. Assuming that's the case, his next opportunity to dress would come next Tuesday, when the team returns home to face the Capitals. The Devils have seven healthy defensemen on the roster after calling up Colton White from AHL Binghamton on Monday, so the group should be set for the trip.

    Devils' Sami Vatanen: Out Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/9/19) Vatanen (illness) will miss Saturday's game versus the Rangers, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Vatanen will miss a third game due to illness. The Devils' blueliner has 17 points this season but last found the scoresheet Jan. 14. Steve Santini will dress in his place.
