Devils' Vitek Vanecek: Earns 24-save shutout
Vanecek stopped 24 shots in Tuesday's 3-0 victory against Chicago.
Vanecek posted his second shutout of 2022-23, and the eighth perfect game of his career. He's 12-2-1 with a 2.10 GAA and .922 save percentage in 17 contests this season. Vanecek has started in 11 of the Devils' last 14 games, in part because Mackenzie Blackwood (knee) has been unavailable.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Dougie Hamilton: Snaps out of slump
Hamilton scored a goal and registered two assists in a 3-0 win against Chicago on Tuesday.
Hamilton's goal came at 11:27 of the first period, and it proved to be the game winner. He has seven goals, 17 points, 94 shots, 25 blocks and 23 hits in 26 contests this season. The 29-year-old was cold from Nov. 17-Dec. 3 with a goal and an assist in nine games from Nov. 17-Dec. 3, but Hamilton's performance Tuesday might get him going again.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Jack Hughes: Picks up two helpers Tuesday
Hughes registered two assists in Tuesday's 3-0 win against Chicago.
One of Hughes' two helpers came on the power play. He extended his point streak to six games, bringing him up to 13 goals and 31 points in 26 contests this season. The 21-year-old had 26 goals and 56 points in 2021-22 despite being limited to 49 games. If Hughes stays healthy this season, he should easily surpass those offensive totals.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Jesper Bratt: Gets power-play goal vs. Chicago
Bratt contributed a power-play goal in New Jersey's 3-0 win against Chicago on Tuesday.
Bratt has 10 goals and 28 points in 26 contests this season. He's well on his way to surpassing his 2021-22 finish of 26 goals and 73 points in 76 games. That said, the 24-year-old has slowed mildly since his hot start to the campaign. Over Bratt's last 15 contests, he's provided five goals and 11 points.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Nico Hischier: Nets goal vs. Chicago
Hischier found the back of the net in Tuesday's 3-0 win against Chicago.
Hischier's goal came at 5:30 of the second period and put the Devils up 2-0. It was his 11th goal and 27th point in 25 games. The 23-year-old hasn't even been held off the scoresheet for two straight games in 2022-23, which underlines how reliable he's been.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Vitek Vanecek: Starting against Chicago
Vanecek will defend the blue paint during Tuesday's home game versus the Blackhawks, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Vanecek wasn't great in his last start Thursday against the Predators, surrendering four goals on just 24 shots en route to a 4-3 overtime defeat. He'll try to shake off that sub-par performance and attempt to return to the win column in a highly favorable home matchup with a bottom-feeding Chicago team that's gone 1-8-1 in its last 10 games....

Devils' Miles Wood: Three assists in last two games
Wood delivered two assists Saturday in a 3-2 win over the Flyers.
He got primary assists on Fabian Zetterlund's opener in the second period and Dawson Mercer's snipe early in the third. Wood was also a buzzsaw on the ice, leveling six hits and wiring two shots. He now has three assists in his last two games and four in his last 10, but Wood's last goal came Nov. 10 against Ottawa.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Akira Schmid: Still unbeaten on season
Schmid made 31 saves Saturday in a 3-2 victory over the Flyers.
He allowed a power-play goal in the second that ended an 0-for-20 drought for the Flyers, as well as an even-strength goal late in the third, but the game was really never in doubt. Schmid remains undefeated this season and has stopped 112 of 118 shots (.949 save percentage).... See More ... See Less
Devils' Akira Schmid: Starting in Philadelphia
Schmid will start Saturday's road game against Philadelphia, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Schmid made 33 saves in a 3-1 win over Buffalo on Nov. 25 during his last appearance to improve to 4-0-0 on the season. The Devils own a mark of 10-1-0 on the road this season, with the only loss coming to the Flyers on Oct. 13.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Andreas Johnsson: Recalled by New Jersey
Johnsson was recalled from AHL Utica on Friday.
Johnsson has been with the Devils on two previous occasions this season but was a healthy scratch in all five contests. He had three goals and 13 points in 12 AHL games before his promotion.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Miles Wood: Back on the ice
Wood (illness) skated Friday after missing Thursday's game.
Wood will travel with the team to Philadelphia for Saturday's clash with the Flyers. He has six goals and 11 points in 23 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Mackenzie Blackwood: Resumes skating Friday
Blackwood skated with the Devils on Friday for the first time since suffering a sprained MCL on Nov. 3.
Blackwood is making progress, but there's no timetable for his return. He won't travel with the Devils to Philadelphia for Saturday's contest. The 25-year-old has a 4-2-0 record, 2.79 GAA and .880 save percentage in seven games this season. Vitek Vanecek's success during Blackwood's absence has likely cemented Vanecek as the No. 1 goaltender, so Blackwood will probably serve as the backup once he's healthy, while Akira Schmid will probably be returned to the AHL....

Devils' Erik Haula: Two-point effort against Preds
Haula recorded two assists, one on the power play, in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Predators.
It's the first multi-point performance of the season for the 31-year-old, who had a hand in the Devils' first and third goals of the night as they did all their scoring in a three-minute stretch early in the second period. On the year, Haula has managed only one goal and 11 points through 24 games, but most of that production (seven points including the goal) has come in his last 10 contests.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Jack Hughes: Two helpers in Thursday's loss
Hughes notched two assists, one on the power play, in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Predators.
The Devils did all their scoring in a three-minute stretch early in the second period, with Hughes helping to set up the first two tallies. The 21-year-old extended his point streak to four games with the performance, and over his last 18 contests he's racked up an impressive 11 goals and 25 points with 73 shots on net and a plus-12 rating....

Devils' Vitek Vanecek: Falls to Preds in OT
Vanecek made 20 saves in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Predators.
The netminder appeared headed for his third straight win and sixth in his last seven starts until Mikael Granlund banged home the rebound on a point shot Vanecek had denied with only 10 seconds left in the third period. Ryan Johansen then benefitted from a turnover in the New Jersey end to wire home the winner for Nashville just 33 seconds into OT. Vanecek still has only two regulation losses on the season, and his 11-2-1 record is matched by a stellar 2.24 GAA and .918 save percentage.... See More ... See Less
