Wood recorded an assist, three hits, two blocked shots and two PIM in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Sharks.
Wood has picked up an assist in consecutive games since he returned from missing a contest due to illness. The 24-year-old winger has 22 points, 126 shots, 93 hits and 55 PIM through 62 contests. He's a physical depth scorer cast in a top-six role for the offensively challenged Devils -- that may earn him some interest in deeper fantasy formats.
Wood (illness) will be back in the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with the Red Wings, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Wood will return to action following just one game on the shelf due to illness. Prior to falling ill, the winger was stuck in a seven-game goal drought during which he notched one assist, 13 shots and 10 hits. The Buffalo native is slated to fill a top-six role alongside Travis Zajac and Joey Anderson versus Detroit.
Wood (illness) won't play in Saturday's game versus the Capitals, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.
Wood will miss his first game of the season, and rookie Nicholas Merkley will fill in on the third line in his place. The 24-year-old Wood has 20 points (10 goals, 10 assists) through 60 games, and he'll aim to return for Tuesday's road contest versus the Red Wings.
Wood scored twice on two shots in Thursday's 5-0 win over Phialdelphia.
Wood skated a team-low 11:46 in this one, but he made the most of his limited ice time, scoring the game's final two goals to put any chances of a Flyers comeback to bed. All three of Wood's shots in his last two games have eluded the goaltender, allowing the power forward to pull even with last season's total of 10 goals. His career high of 19 from 2017-18 likely remains out of reach, though.
Wood scored an empty-net goal and added an assist in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Lightning.
Wood assisted on Andy Greene's second-period goal, and the two swapped roles on a last-second empty-netter. The 24-year-old winger is up to 15 points, 89 shots on goal, 71 hits and 47 PIM through 45 games this season. His solid non-scoring numbers could help fantasy owners in deeper formats.
Wood contributed three shots and two PIM but was held off the scoresheet in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Avalanche.
Wood used his speed to create a partial breakaway at one point, but he was unable to add to his season totals of five goals and 11 points. The 24-year-old Buffalo native has supreme physical tools with a 6-foot-2, 195-pound frame and great speed, but his career has been on a downward trajectory since a 19-goal breakout campaign in 2017-18. He's still a useful fantasy asset in leagues that count PIM, as Wood's on pace to top 80 in that category for the fourth consecutive season.
Wood notched two assists, four shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Coyotes.
Wood had the secondary assist on both of the Devils' goals in the contest. His line with Michael McLeod and Jesper Boqvist accounted for five points to pace the offense in the win. Wood now has nine points and a minus-11 rating in 32 contests. He's added 60 shots, 39 hits and 22 PIM, but the low output on offense will hinder his fantasy value.
Wood scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Hurricanes.
Wood isn't known for his offence, but this was a nice night -- it was his first multi-point effort of the season. But he doesn't have any fantasy value unless he starts to replicate his 19-goal season in 2017-18. Wood should stay on the wire for now.
Wood scored his first goal of the season in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Rangers.
Wood's second-period tally made it 3-1 and turned into the game-winner when Jesper Fast got one back for the visitors in the third. Though he showed some promise offensively with 19 goals in 2017-18, Wood's calling card is the rough stuff, and he added two PIM in this one to bring his season total to eight through seven games. The 24-year-old winger is on pace to top 80 PIM for the fourth consecutive season.
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.
