Gignac was reassigned to AHL Binghamton on Sunday.
The 21-year-old was called up Saturday after the Devils faced a multitude of injuries to their forward group. Gignac suited up in Saturday's game against the Rangers, accumulating just one shot in 9:04 of ice time. If more injuries continue to pile up, Gignac could be the first call-up.
The Devils recalled Gignac from AHL Binghamton on Saturday, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.
Gignac has been pretty productive in the minors this season, totaling 10 goals and 30 points in 54 appearances. The Devils are currently dealing with a ton of injuries up front, so he could make his NHL debut as soon as Saturday against the Rangers.
Gignac, who tore his ACL last December, returned to the ice at the NHL Prospects Tournament on Friday.
Gignac, who was drafted by the Devils in the third round (80th overall) of 2015, reported feeling faster and stronger after testing out his knee in Day 1 of the Prospects Tournament. The 20-year-old has yet to reach the NHL, but he collected 61 goals and 116 assists over 242 games with the Shawinigan Cataractes of the QMJHL between 2013-17, suggesting that he does at least have raw offensive skills.
Gignac signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Devils on Saturday.
The Devils used their third-round (80th overall) pick in this year's draft to nab Gignac, who posted 16 points (five goals, 11 assists) in 14 games with the Shawiningan Cataractes of the QMJHL this season, before earning the entry-level deal. The 19-year-old has tremendous on-ice vision and it shouldn't be long before he's worth a stash in certain dynasty leagues.
