Travis Zajac C NJ 10 Days

Zajac tallied a goal in Tuesday's 2-1 victory over the Lightning.

Zajac's first point of the campaign came on a rebound shot in the first period, after goalie Evgeni Nabokov turned away his initial effort. Those attempts would go down as the only shots on the night for Zajac, who has been largely deferential to his mates in the Devils' first three games. He's attempted only three shots, despite averaging 17:54 of ice time, including 2:34 on the power play.

Zajac left Tuesday's practice with a lower body injury, The Record reports.

It's not exactly clear what type of setback Zajac is dealing with, but according to GM Lou Lamoriello, the injury is "nothing serious" and he believes Zajac "will be fine." Lamoriello's comments seem to indicate Zajac should be fine for Thursday's season opener, but expect his status to be updated as more news becomes available.

Zajac is slated to serve as the Devils' No. 1 center this season, with Michael Cammalleri and Jaromir Jagr flanking him on either side, NHL.com reports.

Both Zajac and Jagr showed excellent continuity in their first season together, but unreliable offense on the left side too often forced the Devils to rely on the defense to win games. While Cammalleri represents an upgrade over the options the Devils trotted out at left wing, his presence is unlikely to vault Zajac much higher than the 50-point level. Zajac is a useful two-way player for the Devils, but lacks the offensive creativity of most No. 1 centers, making him comparably weaker to his peers in most fantasy categories. Still, he'll probably average around 20 minutes of ice time and compile around 15 to 20 goals and 30 assists, giving him some value as a depth forward in certain leagues.

Travis Zajac has been moved from the Devils' first to second line.

Zajac will no longer be playing with Jaromir Jagr, but he will skate alongside Patrik Elias and Damien Brunner. Jagr didn't seem happy with this move and the two had displayed some on-ice chemistry, but Zajac also has experience playing with Elias. In the end, this shift shouldn't alter Zajac's fantasy value.

Travis Zajac scored the game-winning goal for the Devils in their 2-1 victory over the Islanders on Saturday night.

Four years ago, Zajac appeared to be on the cusp of becoming one of the great young centers in the game. Since back-to-back 20-goal, 62-plus-point seasons, though, he's been nothing fantasy owners should be clamoring for. This goal was his seventh, and he has 18 points on the season. Adam Henrique notched the other marker. Reid Boucher, Michael Ryder, Marek Zidlicky and Jaromir Jagr recorded assists.

Travis Zajac's three-game point streak came to an end on Monday.

Zajac got off to a slow start this season, but he's been gradually improving. He has two goals and seven points in 11 games this month, to bring him up to 17 points in 36 contests overall. That's not terrible, but the Devils were likely hoping for more out of him after they lost Ilya Kovalchuk.
