  • Devils' Will Butcher: Falls well short of rookie totals

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/7/19) Butcher dished out an assist in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over Florida. He finishes the season with four goals and 30 points in 78 games.

    Butcher took a step back after an outstanding rookie season, in which he posted 44 points, including 23 on the power play. While he managed a respectable 14 points with the extra man this season, Butcher added on just 16 more at even strength, along with a minus-17 rating. All the prominent injuries around him are partly to blame for Butcher's inability to get going offensively, so the restricted free agent has a good chance of bouncing back next season.

    Devils' Will Butcher: Sets up power-play score

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/25/19) Butcher dished out a power-play assist in Monday's win over the Sabres.

    Butcher helped set up the winning goal with a pass to Pavel Zacha, who sniped a shot past Linus Ullmark in the third period. The 24-year-old has regressed since his 44-point rookie season, but he still has a respectable 29 points in 2018-19.

    Devils' Will Butcher: Back in Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/25/19) Butcher (illness) will return to the lineup Monday against Buffalo, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Butcher missed two games with a stomach bug but appears to be back at full health. With numerous other Devils returning from their respective injuries of late, the offensive-minded blueliner will be coming back to a lineup that has a lot more juice, potentially clearing the path for Butcher to pick up the pace down the stretch of what has been a disappointing sophomore season.

    Devils' Will Butcher: Out again Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/19) Butcher (illness) will miss another game Saturday against the Coyotes, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

    Butcher will miss his second straight contest while battling a bug, leaving the Devils without their primary scoring threat along the blue line. The second-year blueliner will fall short of his rookie campaign by a wide margin, owning just 28 points so far this season compared to 44 in 2017-18, but he should help owners down the stretch and could be a bargain in drafts next year thanks to the down season.

    Devils' Will Butcher: Apples in three straight

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/14/19) Butcher collected an assist and two PIM in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Oilers.

    Butcher has gathered assists in three straight contests, bringing him to 27 points (four goals, 23 helpers) in 69 games this season. He doesn't play much of a physical game (36 hits, 65 blocked shots, eight PIM this year), which limits his fantasy appeal partially.
