by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zacha scored a power-play goal and added and assist with three shots in a 6-4 win over Philadelphia on Tuesday.

It was Zacha's second straight game with a goal, giving the 24-year-old 28 points in 43 games. He needs just one more goal to match the career-high 13 he collected in 2018-19.

Devils' Pavel Zacha: Not expected to play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zacha (undisclosed) is not expected to suit up for Tuesday's game against Pittsburgh, NHL.com reports.

This will mark the fifth straight game that Zacha will miss after he left during the April 11 contest against the Penguins. The 24-year-old is traveling with the team, so there's a chance he'll return at some point during the road trip. He has 25 points in 39 games this season.

Devils' Pavel Zacha: Still missing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zacha (undisclosed) won't be available for Sunday's game against the Rangers, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

The specifics of the injury remain unclear, as Zacha will miss his fourth consecutive game. Coach Lindy Ruff said Sunday that Zacha "could be available in a game or two," so the injury doesn't appear to be a long-term issue. Jesper Bratt (undisclosed) won't play either, so Nolan Foote will enter the lineup to make his NHL debut Sunday.

Devils' Pavel Zacha: Not expected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zacha (undisclosed) isn't expected to play Saturday against the Rangers, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.

Zacha is still considered day-to-day with his undisclosed issue, so there's a chance he'll be ready to return for Sunday's rematch with the Rangers. Once healthy, the 24-year-old pivot should return to a top-six role as well as a spot on one of New Jersey's power-play units.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Devils' Pavel Zacha: Sidelined with undisclosed issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zacha (undisclosed) won't play Tuesday against the Rangers, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Zacha is scheduled to meet with the Devils' training staff Tuesday night, so a clearer timetable for his recovery could be established soon. Luckily for New Jersey, Nico Hischier (face) is set to return to the lineup against the Rangers following a six-week absence.

Devils' Pavel Zacha: No update on condition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Lindy Ruff said Monday that there's no update on Zacha's injury but the team is "hoping it's not serious," Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Zacha left Sunday's game against the Penguins with an undisclosed injury after logging just 5:05 of ice time. The 24-year-old center met with the Devils' medical staff Monday, and it sounds like they'll have a better update on his condition by Tuesday. Zacha has accrued 10 goals and 25 points through 39 games. Nico Hischier (face) is on track to return for Tuesday's game versus the Rangers, and he'll likely take Zacha's top-six center role regardless of Zacha's health.

Devils' Pavel Zacha: Celebrates birthday with two points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zacha scored a goal to go with a power-play assist, three shots and a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Sabres.

Zacha set up Jesper Bratt's power-play tally in the final second of the first period, and Bratt returned the favor on Zacha's second-period goal, which put New Jersey up 3-2. Unfortunately for Zacha and the Devils, it was all Buffalo from there. Given the final score, this was a bittersweet 24th birthday for the center, who leads the team with 22 points in 36 games.

Devils' Pavel Zacha: Sitting out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zacha (undisclosed) won't play in Thursday's game versus the Penguins, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Zacha was considered a game-time call, but he didn't take the ice for warmups, indicating that he'll miss his first game of the year. The 23-year-old should have a chance to return for Saturday's rematch against the Pens.

Devils' Pavel Zacha: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zacha (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Thursday night's matchup with Pittsburgh, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Zacha wasn't able to finish morning skate, so he should probably be considered iffy at best for Thursday's contest. If Zacha's unable to go, Michael McLeod will likely draw into the lineup against the Penguins.

Devils' Pavel Zacha: Taking maintenance day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zacha (undisclosed) won't practice Wednesday after suffering an injury in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Sabres, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Zacha was able to finish Tuesday's game, but head coach Lindy Ruff expressed some concern about the Czech forward's status ahead of Thursday's contest against the Penguins. With any luck, this is just a cautious approach and not something worse for Zacha. Fantasy managers will want to confirm his status prior to puck drop Thursday.

Devils' Pavel Zacha: Halts dry spell
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
