Zubrus snapped a 50-game goal drought when he found the net for one of the Devils' two scores in Tuesday's loss to the Wild.

The 36-year-old Zubrus has never provided much in the way of offensive upside, but he's sunk to a new low in 2014-15. He's managed only eight points in 59 games, which has led to a nearly three-minute dip in ice time from a season earlier.

The 36-year-old has never been a top-flight scorer, but he seems to be running on fumes at this point. He's produced only two goals and five assists over 42 games, putting him on pace for the lowest point total of his career in any non-lockout season.

Zubrus (leg laceration) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

The Devils are still considering Zubrus day-to-day after he was able to skate earlier in the day, but was moved to IR to create some roster flexibility. Since he's already missed the minimum seven days required for an IR stint, he'll be eligible for activation immediately once he becomes healthier.
