Devils' Nikita Gusev: Finds 30th assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gusev posted a power-play helper in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Ducks.

Gusev had the secondary helper on Pavel Zacha's second-period tally. During his six-game point streak, Gusev has two goals and seven helpers. The 27-year-old Russian is at 42 points (14 on the power play), 149 shots and a minus-13 rating in 62 contests. If fantasy owners can overlook his lack of physicality, Gusev's offense is a solid addition to virtual squads.

Devils' Nikita Gusev: Reaches 40-point threshold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gusev potted a goal on three shots in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Sharks.

Gusev intercepted a sloppy pass and struck for an unassisted goal at 15:08 of the first period. The 27-year-old has two tallies and five helpers during his four-game point streak. He's up to 12 goals, 40 points, 143 shots and a minus-14 rating through 60 contests this year -- those numbers should be good enough to attract fantasy attention.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gusev scored his 11th goal of the season and added a power-play assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Detroit.

This was Gusev's third multi-point game in a row and pushed the forward's season point total up to 39 in 59 games. A third of the rookie's points this year have come with the man advantage.

Devils' Nikita Gusev: Two helpers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gusev notched two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Capitals.

He helped set up the Devils' final two goals, including Damon Severson's game-winner with less than two minutes remaining in the third period. Gusev remains a little inconsistent in his first NHL campaign, but the 27-year-old has been a solid addition to the top six in New Jersey, posting 10 goals and 37 points through 58 games

Devils' Nikita Gusev: Bright light in dark year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gusev picked up two assists in a 2-1 win over San Jose on Thursday.

The 27-year-old first-year player has 35 points, including 25 assists, in 57 games this season. That's a 50-point pace over the course of a full 82-game season. Gusev has been a pleasant surprise in a dark year for the Devils.

Devils' Nikita Gusev: Records helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gusev posted an assist and five shots on net in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Hurricanes.

Gusev earned the secondary helper on Mirco Mueller's first-period tally. The 27-year-old Russian is up to 33 points (10 goals, 23 helpers), 131 shots and a minus-15 rating in 54 contests. Fantasy owners that can offset his defensive struggles could benefit from Gusev's solid scoring production. He hasn't gone more than three games in a row without a point at any time in 2019-20.

Gusev helped out on Travis Zajac's tally in the second period. The 27-year-old is on a modest three-game point streak (goal, two helpers). His first NHL season continues to be moderately successful, with 27 points, 99 shots and a minus-8 rating through 42 contests.

Devils' Nikita Gusev: Shakes apple tree in blowout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gusev dished three assists, fired three shots on goal and went plus-3 in Monday's 7-1 win over the Blackhawks.

Gusev's helping hand has been on display frequently in the last week -- he's posted six assists in his last four games. The Russian reached the 20-point mark with Monday's performance, and he's added 74 shots and a minus-7 rating in 33 contests this season.

Devils' Nikita Gusev: Chips in with assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gusev posted an assist and two PIM in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Predators.

Gusev set up Travis Zajac's tally at 3:59 of the first period. Gusev has been fantastic recently with six assists in his last six games. For the year, the Russian winger has 14 points (five tallies, nine helpers) in 26 appearances. He doesn't add much physicality -- he's produced 12 PIM, seven hits and three blocked shots -- but the 27-year-old is beginning to adjust well on offense.

Devils' Nikita Gusev: Lights lamp Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gusev scored a goal and took four PIM in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Flames.

Gusev put the Devils ahead 2-1 with his second-period tally, but took his second minor penalty of the night three minutes later. His 12:04 in the game was lowest among Devils forwards. The Russian winger has five points and six PIM in 11 games during his first NHL season.

Devils' Nikita Gusev: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gusev is expected to return to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Jets, Chris Ryan of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Gusev has been a healthy scratch for each of the Devils' last three contests, but an injury to Jesper Bratt (upper body) has opened the door for him to return to the lineup against Winnipeg. The 27-year-old Russian will likely slot into a top-six role and a spot on one of New Jersey's power-play units Tuesday.

Devils' Nikita Gusev: Sitting as healthy scratch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gusev will be a healthy scratch for Wednesday's game against Tampa Bay, Chris Ryan of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Gusev hasn't had a poor start to his NHL career, notching three goals and four points through his first nine games, but he's still adapting to the smaller North American ice sheet, so the Devils are hoping watching Wednesday's contest from the press box will help him identify areas in which he can improve his game, particularly with his defensive zone exits and forechecking. The 27-year-old Russian should be right back in the lineup for Friday's matchup with Philadelphia.
