Wood (upper body) is expected to return to the lineup for Saturday's game versus the Islanders, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Wood (upper body) won't play Thursday versus the Islanders, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Wood didn't seem to suffer a noteworthy injury Tuesday versus the Bruins, but he's evidently hurt enough to sit out Thursday. Tyce Thompson will take his place in the lineup. Wood's first chance to get back in the lineup is Saturday versus the Islanders.
Wood collected a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Flyers.
Wood found the back of the net for the third consecutive game, beating Philadelphia goalie Brian Elliott with a point shot through traffic 5:14 into the second period. The goal, Wood's team-leading 17th of the season, gave the Devils a seemingly commanding 3-0 lead. The 25-year-old Wood is closing in on the career-high 19 goals he scored in 2017-18 despite having played 27 fewer games this season.
Wood collected a goal and an assist with five shots and two blocks Sunday in a 4-3 shootout loss to Philadelphia.
Wood assisted on Michael McLeod's goal that opened the scoring 4:56 into the game, then he gave the Devils a 2-1 edge in the middle frame, crashing to the net to convert a Nathan Bastian setup. Wood, who has picked up five points over his last four contests, tops the Devils with 16 goals and 29 PIM in 48 games this season.
Wood potted his 15th goal of the season in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Penguins.
A fourth-liner with 15 goals? Yes, Wood is unique in that he starts his 5-on-5 shifts on the bottom line but has the scoring prowess necessary to consistently occupy a spot on the No. 2 power-play unit. His goal Saturday was a slick one-timer at even strength, though it was too little, too late, as the Devils were outplayed by goalie Casey DeSmith and a rather stingy Pens defense.
Wood dished out two assists in Tuesday's 7-6 loss to Pittsburgh.
Wood played a prominent role in New Jersey's failed comeback attempt from a six-goal deficit after two periods, helping out on goals by Nathan Bastian to make it 6-3 Pittsburgh and Andreas Johnsson to make it 7-6. The Devils were unable to tie it up after Johnsson scored with 41 seconds to go, but Wood found a silver lining in the form of his first multi-assist game since Dec. 14, 2019. Known more for his physicality and net-front presence than playmaking, Wood has 14 goals and seven assists in 45 games this season.
Wood scored a goal on two shots in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Penguins.
Wood has scored five times in his last 10 games. The 25-year-old winger is expected to see a larger role as the Devils continue to overhaul their roster with youth in mind at the trade deadline. The fifth-year winger has 19 points, 97 shots on net and 27 PIM through 40 appearances this season.
Wood scored two goals in Friday's 6-4 loss to the Penguins.
He was credited with the Devils' first and last tallies of the night, although the second had little to do with him as a Brian Dumoulin clearing attempt hit Casey DeSmith in the back of the leg and caromed into the Pittsburgh net. Wood hadn't had a multi-point performance since Jan. 31, and on the season the 25-year-old has 13 goals and 18 points through 39 games.
Wood failed to register any significant statistics besides two PIM in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Sabres.
Wood failed to replicate his success from Tuesday's clash between the two bottom teams in the East Division standings, when he piled up six shots and an assist. The power forward hasn't put forth a multi-point effort since Jan. 31, but he still leads the team with 11 goals in 38 games. Pavel Zacha's hot on Wood's heels in that category, as Zacha's three goals in the last two games have made him the second Devil to reach double digits this season.
Wood scored his ninth goal of the season on five shots while adding two blocked shots and a minus-1 rating in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Sabres.
With the score tied 2-2 early in the third period, Wood ripped home a power-play tally that proved to be the winning goal. The 25-year-old had only one point, a goal, in his prior seven games, and on the season he has a modest 13 points through 26 games.
Wood scored a power-play goal in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Sabres.
Wood has a team-high six goals through 15 games, having rediscovered the scoring touch that helped him light the lamp 19 times in 2017-18. The power forward totaled just 21 goals in the two subsequent seasons, but Wood's enticing combination of size and speed, in addition to his net-front role on the Devils' top power-play unit, have made him a go-to scoring option this year for a surprisingly competitive New Jersey team.
Wood scored two goals on seven shots and added an assist and a plus-4 rating during Sunday's 5-3 win over the Sabres.
The Devils' third line carried the load for the team, with Wood and Michael McLeod each lighting the lamp twice. Wood started out the season hot before managing only one point, an assist, in his prior five games, but the 25-year-old could be shifting back into high gear. Overall, he has five goals and eight points in nine games, an impressive haul for a player with career highs of 19 goals and 32 points over a full campaign.
Wood scored the game-winning goal on the power play and added an even-strength assist in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Rangers.
The 25-year-old has been one of the bright spots in New Jersey's hot start to the season, lighting the lamp in all three games so far and recording four points in total. Wood has also been skating on the top power-play unit, and while Tuesday's tally was the first time he cashed in on that opportunity, more ice time with the likes of Jack Hughes can only boost his fantasy value.
Wood scored a goal on a team-high five shots and added four PIM in Thursday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Bruins.
Wood certainly left an impression on Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask, scoring New Jersey's first goal and also committing a pair of goaltender interference penalties. The physical winger scored just 21 goals in the previous two seasons combined after potting 19 in 2017-18, but Wood did a good job wreaking havoc in front of Rask in this one and should increase his scoring output if he can bring this level of intensity on a nightly basis.
Wood (undisclosed) returned to practice Saturday, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Wood has missed the last two days of practice with an undisclosed issue, but he skated on his own Friday, which was the first indication he was likely nearing a return to full health. The 25-year-old American, who notched 11 goals and 23 points in 68 games last campaign, is expected to open the season skating on New Jersey's third line and second power-play unit.
Wood (undisclosed) resumed skating Thursday, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.
Wood didn't practice, but he's clearly trending in the right direction after exiting Wednesday's practice with an undisclosed injury. Another update on his status should surface once he's able to return to practice with the main group.
Wood left Wednesday's practice early with an undisclosed injury, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.
After practice, coach Lindy Ruff told reporters he doesn't believe Wood's injury is serious, so although he'll likely miss a few days of practice, it doesn't sound like he's currently in jeopardy of missing the Devils' regular-season opener against Boston on Jan. 14. Another update on the bottom-six forward's status should surface once he's cleared to resume on-ice activities.
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.
