Devils' Nico Hischier: Adds insurance tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier scored a goal on three shots and added two blocked shots in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Ducks.

Hischier's marker at 13:56 of the third period produced the final score. It was the Swiss center's first point in six games -- consistency continues to be a struggle for Hischier. He's up to 14 markers, 34 points, 113 shots and a minus-13 rating in 54 contests this season.

Devils' Nico Hischier: Collects assist in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier (knee) had an assist and logged 17:48 of playing time Sunday in a 4-3 shootout win over Columbus.

Hischier was back in the lineup after a six-game absence and picked up an assist on Kyle Palmieri's go-ahead goal in the second period. He extended his point streak to five games (three goals, four assists) and will be asked to carry even more of the offensive load following Sunday's trade of Blake Coleman to Tampa Bay. Hischier has 13 goals and 20 assists in 47 games.

Devils' Nico Hischier: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier (knee) will return to the lineup for Sunday's game against Columbus, Chris Ryan of NJ.com reports.

Hischier has missed the past six games while tending to the knee issue but was finally cleared to play. The 21-year-old will be a huge addition to the lineup, as prior to getting injured, he was riding a three-game point streak. Hischier is expected to assume his top-line center role for the game between Kyle Palmieri and Jesper Bratt.

Devils' Nico Hischier: Aiming for Sunday return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier (knee) hopes to rejoin the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jackets, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

The news effectively rules Hischier out for Friday's contest against the Hurricanes, but it appears the 21-year-old pivot's stay on the shelf is nearing its end. Nicholas Merkley for John Hayden is the only change up front for the Devils on Friday, but more could be on the way when the team returns home for Sunday's tilt.

Devils' Nico Hischier: Slated to sit Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier (knee) is in line to miss another game Thursday versus the Red Wings, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Hischier appears destined for a fifth consecutive absence Thursday, and it wouldn't be surprising if another absence awaits Friday given the 24-hour turnaround between games. He was at least on the ice with the team during Wednesday's practice, which marks a step in the right direction after he skated before Monday's practice session.

Devils' Nico Hischier: Expected to sit Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier (knee) is not expected to play versus the Panthers on Tuesday, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Although Hischier skated before Monday's morning skate, he'll need to re-join a team practice and absorb contact before getting back in the lineup. Rookie Jack Hughes is slated to continue centering the top line in Hischier's place.

Devils' Nico Hischier: Will miss third straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier (knee) has been ruled out of Saturday's matchup versus the Kings, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Hischier didn't skate Saturday morning, either, so the timeline for his return remains uncertain as he recovers from getting stitches in his knee. The Devils are expected to continue rolling out Jack Hughes as the top-line center in Hischier's place.

Devils' Nico Hischier: Ruled out for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday's game versus the Flyers, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Hischier needed stitches on his knee during Saturday's loss to the Stars but was able to return to the contest. However, he didn't play Tuesday and will miss a second straight game. Jack Hughes filled in on the top line Tuesday and figures to do so again after dishing out an assist.

Devils' Nico Hischier: Won't play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier (knee) will not take the ice for Tuesday's game against the Canadiens, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Hischier missed a little time while getting stitches on his knee during the first few minutes of the second period Saturday, but he was ultimately able to finish the tilt. However, the pivot's absence from practice Monday resulted in question marks surrounding his status for Tuesday's game, and he will apparently require the night off. His next opportunity to lace up the skates arrives Thursday against the Flyers, while Joey Anderson joined the lineup in practice and Jack Hughes slotted in centering the top line.

Devils' Nico Hischier: Misses practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier (knee) is considered day-to-day ahead of Tuesday's game versus the Canadiens, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

The 21-year-old got stitches on his knee during Saturday's loss to the Stars before returning to the game, but he missed Monday's practice and has an uncertain status heading into Tuesday. Rookie Jack Hughes filled in on the top line during practice, but if Hischier is cleared to play, he'll slot back in as the team's No. 1 center.

Devils' Nico Hischier: OK after cut that needed stitches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier missed the opening few minutes of the second period of Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to Dallas after needing stitches on his knee but returned to score a goal.

He took a hit from Steven Johns in the first period that resulted in the cut. But he came back and notched his 13th goal. Hischier is warming up in a big way. He has 14 points (seven goals, seven assists) in his past 15 games. Use him well.

Devils' Nico Hischier: Clutch assist in shootout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier set up a game-tying goal Monday in a 4-3 shootout win over the Senators.

Nabbed by the Devils with the first overall pick in the 2017 draft, Hischier is brimming with confidence, especially after notching a pair of goals to complement a helper in the semifinal round of the NHL All-Star Game. The Swiss national has figured out how to be more consistent in the attacking zone, resulting in 12 goals and 18 apples through 44 regular-season contests.

Devils' Nico Hischier: Game heating up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier scored twice Saturday in a 5-1 win over Washington.

He has five goals and 10 points in eight games since the holiday break. It's tough for a 21-year-old to be a number one pivot in the NHL, especially with a thin supporting cast like there is in New Jersey. Hischier has a bright future and this little run is a foreshadowing of that.

Devils' Nico Hischier: Two-point effort Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier scored an even-strength goal and added a power-play assist in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Islanders.

He was largely responsible for the Devils earning a point on the night. Hischier tied the score at 2-2 in the second period on an impressive individual effort that saw him carry the puck -- and Mathew Barzal -- around the entire perimeter of the offensive zone before he flipped a backhand through traffic and past Thomas Greiss, then he set up Kyle Palmieri for a go-ahead marker midway through the third. Hischier has racked up five goals and 10 points in the last 10 games, and he continues to flash the talent that made him the first overall pick in the 2017 draft. The only thing the 21-year-old is missing is consistency.

Devils' Nico Hischier: Lights lamp versus Senators
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier scored his eighth goal of the season and fired a team-high five shots on goal during Sunday's 4-3 overtime win versus Ottawa.

Hischier opened the scoring at 8:58 of the first period while New Jersey was on a power play, giving the Swiss-born center just his second power-play goal of 2019-20. He's recorded 22 points in 32 games. Starved for goals in his sophomore campaign, Hischier has tickled twine in back-to-back games which could be a sign of things to come as the calendar flips to 2020. The 20-year-old is on a shortlist of fantasy-relevant Devils players.

Devils' Nico Hischier: Three-point effort in OT loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier scored a goal and added two assists, one on the power play, in Friday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Maple Leafs.

New Jersey's top line of Hischier, Kyle Palmieri and Jesper Bratt had a hand in every one of the team's tallies and was largely responsible for the Devils even getting a point out of a game where they were mostly outplayed. It's the 20-year-old's first multi-point performance since mid-November, and on the year Hischier has seven goals and 21 points through 32 games.

Devils' Nico Hischier: Picking up the offensive slack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier scored a goal on two shots and was plus-2 with two PIM in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Ducks.

Hischier got the Devils on the board 68 seconds into the second period, tying the game with the first of three unanswered New Jersey goals. Hischier has now scored three goals in five December games, matching his total for all of October and November combined. The 20-year-old, who has six goals and 17 points in 28 games, will be looked upon to provide more offense in the wake of the Taylor Hall trade.

Devils' Nico Hischier: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier (illness) will return to the lineup Friday against the Avalanche, Chris Ryan of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Hischier has missed New Jersey's last three games due to an illness, but it doesn't appear as though interim head coach Alain Nasreddine is planning on easing him back in, as the 20-year-old pivot is expected to skate on the Devils' top line and first power-play unit against Colorado. The 2017 first-overall pick has notched five goals and 16 points in 25 games this campaign.

December 10, 2019 11:52 AM
Devils' Nico Hischier: Moved to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier (illness) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, retroactive to Dec. 5.

The Swiss-born forward is out with an illness and won't dress Tuesday versus Dallas as a result. He is eligible to come off IR on Dec. 13. Expect another update on Hischier's status prior to Friday night's game in Colorado.

December 10, 2019 05:24 AM
Devils' Nico Hischier: May play against Stars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hischier (illness) didn't participate in Monday's practice but interim head coach Alain Nasreddine said there's a chance he'll play Tuesday against the Stars, Chris Wescott of the Blackhawks' official site reports.

Hischier missed Friday and Saturday's games due to this illness and hasn't been on the ice since, so the 20-year-old will likely need to participate in Tuesday's morning skate to have a shot at suiting up. If he's able to do so, Hischier's slated for a top-six role with power-play responsibilities.
