Wood racked up 14 PIM in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over Florida. He finishes the season with 10 goals, 24 points and 91 PIM in 63 games.
The 23-year-old power forward took a step back as a scorer after recording 19 goals and 32 points last season, perhaps feeling the negative effects of a contract holdout. Wood still finished between 84 and 91 PIM for a third consecutive campaign despite missing 19 games, and he should continue to make an impact in leagues that reward trips to the sin bin moving forward.
Wood recorded an assist and four shots on goal in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Coyotes.
Wood came out strong in his first game back after missing 12 games with an ankle issue. He's missed 19 games since the start of January with various injuries, limiting him to 22 points in 57 games this season.
Wood (ankle) will return to action versus the Coyotes on Saturday, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.
Wood emerges from a 12-game injury layoff, and he won't be returning to a makeshift lineup, either. Kyle Palmieri (undisclosed) and Nico Hischier (upper body) will be back in tow as well to bolster the top six and take some of the pressure off the former. Wood has compiled eight goals and 13 assists through 56 games this season, though he's gone against the grain defensively based on a minus-9 rating.
Wood (ankle) won't play Thursday against the Bruins, per Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.
Wood's next chance to play will arrive Saturday for a home game against the Coyotes.
Wood (ankle) won't be ready Tuesday against the Capitals, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Wood is said to be the closest to a return among a throng of other Devils forwards, but Thursday's game against the Bruins is the soonest Wood will return. This team is out of playoff contention and will probably want to give its most talented skaters from AHL Binghamton a look anyway.
Wood (ankle) will not play against the Avalanche on Sunday, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Make that 10 straight absences for Wood, who serves in a power-play capacity when healthy. Simply put, the Devils have no incentive to rush the winger back since the team is well out of the playoff picture. Eric Tangradi -- who notched his first point in five years Friday against the Canucks -- figures to continue filling in for Wood.
Wood (ankle) skated as an extra at practice Friday, but he will remain sidelined for the evening's game against the Canucks, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Wood hasn't played since Feb. 25, but his presence on the trip and at practice Friday suggests he's nearing a return to the lineup. He has one more opportunity to return on the road swing out west Sunday against the Avalanche, but the Devils have no reason to rush Wood back if he's not ready.
Wood (ankle) will travel with the team on its upcoming three-game trip through Western Canada, which begins Tuesday in Calgary, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
This news presumably means that Wood will have a chance to suit up at some point during this trip, which would mark an early return after he was given a four-week recovery timetable in late February. Until more news surfaces on the physical forward's health, he can remain outside of fantasy lineups.
Wood (ankle) shed his walking boot and the winger's been skating in his recovery, Chris Ryan of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
While Wood appears to be making strides in his rehab from an ankle fracture, he will be lucky to have five games remaining on the schedule by the time he's ready to go. It would take nothing short of a miracle for the Devils to wind up in the postseason, so the primary focus should be getting New Jersey's long list of injured players back to full strength for the 2019-20 campaign.
Wood is dealing with an ankle fracture that will keep him out for approximately four weeks, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
The Devils have been slammed by injuries up front, as Taylor Hall, Kyle Palmieri and Jesper Bratt are dealing with lower-body injuries, Pavel Zacha is hampered by an upper-body issue -- joining even more Devils in the medical room -- and now Wood will be lucky to see a few games left on the regular-season schedule by the time he's ready to return. The additions of Blake Pietila and Nick Lappin will help stabilize the forward corps, but it'll be difficult for either of them to match the 0.375 points-per-game pace from Wood.
Wood suffered a lower-body injury in the first period of Monday's game against Montreal and didn't come out for the second, Chris Ryan of NJ Advance Media reports.
Wood went down to the ice in pain after a collision and took a puck to the leg in short succession, forcing the power forward off to the locker room. His inability to come out for the second period suggests he's done for the night. Expect further updates on his status prior to New Jersey's next game, Wednesday against Calgary.
Wood (undisclosed) will travel to New York and draw into Saturday's game against the Rangers, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Wood exited Thursday's game having sustained an undisclosed injury, but it doesn't appear to be serious enough to keep him out of Saturday's contest. The left winger was on the ice for just 8:59 but was able to score and snag an apple before leaving. Wood has scored a goal in each of his last three games and will look to lengthen that streak against a Rangers team that has given up 3.28 goals per game -- seventh-most in the league.
Wood exited Thursday's 4-0 win over the Senators after suffering an undisclosed injury, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Wood departed Thursday's contest after logging just 8:59 of ice time, but he made the most out of his limited opportunities, picking up a goal and an assist while firing four shots on net. Coach John Hynes doesn't think Wood's dealing with "anything major", but at this point, he should probably be considered questionable at best for Saturday's matchup with the Rangers.
Wood had a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-0 win over Ottawa.
Wood is on a three-game goal streak (three goals, one assist). He remain a 30-point winger whose value is restricted to deeper formats.
Wood's third-period goal against the Penguins on Tuesday wasn't quite enough, as the Devils lost at home, 4-3.
Wood was tightly covered by Penguins defenseman Brian Dumoulin, but he managed to put the puck past Matt Murray from the slot for his seventh goal of the 2018-19 campaign. The American winger dealt with an upper-body injury that caused him to miss five straight contests earlier this month, though he's now gathered two points in three games since returning against Minnesota last Friday. Wood is relatively safe to use as a budget option in DFS play.
The Devils activated Wood (upper body) off of injured reserve Friday.
Wood looks primed to rejoin the lineup after sitting out each of the last four games. Prior to his absence, he served as the left wing on the second line, and there's a good chance he will slot back in there versus the Wild. He should also retake his spot on one of the Devils' power-play units.
Wood (upper body) is still listed on injured reserve ahead of Friday's game against the Wild, per the NHL's official media site.
Wood will miss a fifth straight contest Friday and remains without a clear timetable for his return to game action. The 23-year-old winger's absence will continue to test New Jersey's depth up front, but it shouldn't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only tallied 17 points in 50 appearances this campaign.
Wood (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, per the NHL's official media site.
Wood had already been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Wild before landing on injured reserve. Due to the league's IR rules, he won't be eligible to return until Feb. 15 against the Wild.
Wood (upper body) is considered day-to-day and won't play Saturday against Minnesota, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Wood suffered his injury during Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Islanders when he took an awkward spill in front of the opposition's goal late in the second period. The winger attempted to stay in the game, but he was ultimately forced to miss the remainder of the contest after being evaluated by New Jersey's training staff. The 2013 fourth-round pick will miss at least one contest due to his upper-body issue, but his day-to-day label suggests he likely won't be sidelined for long.
Wood (upper body) left in the second period of Thursday's game against New York, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Wood was shaken up after falling down in front of the opposing goal. He attempted to stay in the game but was eventually forced to leave. An update on his status should surface prior to New Jersey's next game Saturday, at home versus the Wild.
