Devils' Stefan Noesen: Scratched Monday
Noesen was a healthy scratch in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Sharks.
Drew Stafford took his spot and made an immediate impact by scoring the game's first goal. Noesen played just 9:33 and 5:17 in the last two games prior to getting taken out of the lineup, and he's stuck on five points through 20 games. His next chance to rejoin the lineup comes Friday against Vegas.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Ben Lovejoy: Offensive ineptitude continues
Lovejoy didn't factor into the scoring while recording one shot and a minus-1 rating over 17:33 of ice time during Monday's 5-2 loss to the Sharks.
Lovejoy has three assists in 26 games, with the last of those coming back on Nov. 6. His 17:33 of ice time in this one was the most the stay-at-home defenseman has played since Nov. 25, but he's still irrelevant in pretty much all formats.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Miles Wood: Mired in extended slump
Wood finished with three shots and two blocks in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Sharks, once again failing to mark the scoresheet.
Perhaps holding out for a new contract deep into camp had a negative impact on Wood's preparation prior to this season, as he has only seven points through 29 games. That meager total includes just one goal and one assist in 20 games since the start of November. This could be a nice buy-low point on the power forward in dynasty formats, but redraft owners should wait for signs of life from Wood before plucking him from the waiver wire.... See More ...

Devils' Andy Greene: Producing steadily by his standards
Greene celebrated his first goal of the season Monday, but the Devils would end up with a 5-2 road loss to the Sharks.
Sharks goalie Martin Jones sent forward Kyle Palmieri's shot back, only for Greene to cash in on the rebound. Skating in his 13th NHL season, Greene still logs a good amount of minutes for New Jersey -- he's averaging 21:03 of ice time per game -- and with one goal and seven helpers, the veteran finds himself on pace for his best offensive output since dropping 32 points with the Devils in 2013-14....

Devils' Drew Stafford: Finally gets on board
Stafford emerged with his first goal of the season in Monday's 5-2 road loss to the Sharks.
It didn't appear that goalie Martin Jones was expecting Stafford to wire a shot from a sharp angle. The veteran winger has been bogged down by upper-body injuries, as Stafford's only made seven appearances as part of the 2018-19 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Keith Kinkaid: Fails to impress in San Jose
Kinkaid surrendered five goals on 34 shots in Monday's road loss to the Sharks.
The Devils only have two wins in their past 10 games to slip into the cellar of the Eastern Conference standings. Kinkaid's allied skaters only won 36.7 percent of the draws in this latest contest, ultimately leading to a minus-10 shot differential, and now the 6-foot-3, 195-pound netminder is 10-8-5 with a 3.03 GAA and .903 save percentage on the season. The ratios leave a lot to be desired, but working in Kinkaid's favor is the fact that alternate Devils goalie, Cory Schneider, remains winless through eight games.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Keith Kinkaid: In net on the road
Kinkaid will be the road starter against the Sharks on Monday, Abbey Mastracco of the New Jersey Record reports.
Kinkaid will be trying to right the ship, as he has a 3.97 GAA and .878 save percentage over his last six starts. Good luck to him, as the Devils are on the road for their second game in as many nights, putting the 29-year-old goalie at an even greater disadvantage.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Damon Severson: Pots goal in SO loss
Severson scored a power-play goal in Sunday's 6-5 shootout loss to Anaheim.
Severson is having a career year and now has four goals and 17 points in 28 games. His previous high for points in a season came back in 2016-17 when he notched 31, but the 24-year-old is on pace to easily surpass that number in 2018-19. Severson does need to improve defensively, as he presently owns the worst plus-minus rating on the team (minus-11).... See More ... See Less
Devils' Kyle Palmieri: Scores two more goals but loses
Palmieri scored his 15th and 16th goals of the season in a 6-5 shootout loss to the Ducks on Sunday.
The 27-year-old American has scored four times in his last two games and is on pace to set new career highs across the board. Palmieri's two goals against Anaheim came early in the game with his first marker actually opening the scoring. Many more goals would follow in what turned out to be a crazy game that featured 10 total markers.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Jesper Bratt: Picks up two helpers in SO loss
Bratt finished Sunday's 6-5 shootout loss to Anaheim with two assists.
When healthy, the 20-year-old Swede has been productive this season. Bratt now has two goals and nine assists in 14 games and continues to play a key role in New Jersey's offense. The young right winger is also a mainstay on the Devils' power-play unit, so his owners should continue dressing him on a nightly basis and hope he stays healthy as the season rolls on....

Devils' Marcus Johansson: Picks up two points in crazy loss
Johansson scored a goal and assisted on another in a 6-5 shootout loss to Anaheim on Sunday.
The Devils' forward has scored three goals over his last five games, giving him six on the year to go along with six helpers. Since coming to New Jersey, Johansson has been a tad disappointing, mostly due to his inability to stay healthy. Through 26 games, the 28-year-old is a minus-8, putting him second from the bottom on the team. If able to, we recommend you look elsewhere for players to fill out your fantasy roster....

Devils' Cory Schneider: Still searching for first win
Schneider allowed five goals on 38 shots in a 6-5 shootout loss to Anaheim on Sunday.
Schneider continues to come up empty in his quest for a win in 2018-19, his latest loss moving him to 0-5-1 on the season. He made just one save in the shootout, resulting in his team suffering its sixth overtime/shootout loss of the year, which ties them for most in the league. Following the game, the Devils announced that Keith Kinkaid would start Monday's game, so Schneider will need to wait for another opportunity to pick up win number one.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Cory Schneider: Back in goal Sunday
Schneider will draw the road start against the Ducks on Sunday, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
This will be Schneider's first start since he coughed up five goals on 35 shots in a Nov. 25 road clash with the Lightning. He faced that same team last Monday, permitting one goal on six shots in a backup capacity. A fading fantasy asset who's lost his starting role to Keith Kinkaid, Schneider will look to get back on track against a Ducks team that has gone 7-2-1 in its past 10 games but does have a minus-14 goal differential on the season....

Devils' Travis Zajac: Scores first points in December
Zajac lit the lamp and set up another goal in a 6-3 win over Los Angeles on Thursday.
Zajac wasn't doing much of anything before this game, as he failed to register a point in eight of the previous nine contests and hadn't recorded an assist since Nov. 15. If another owner has given up on him, it might be a good time to buy low, as he's shown in the past that he's capable of much more than he's done in the past two weeks.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Taylor Hall: Serving team well
Hall notched three assists -- with one on the power play -- Thursday, helping his side double up Los Angeles in a 6-3 win.
The Devils aren't a top offensive squad, but they'd obviously be much worse without Hall, who has generated 22 assists to rank sixth in the league in that important fantasy hockey category.... See More ... See Less
