Travis Zajac scored a goal in New Jersey's 2-1 win against the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday.

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 had an assist in the Devils' 1-0 victory on Thursday.

Zajac got off to a rough start this season, but he's put that behind him with three goals and 10 points in his last 15 games. He'll probably just do okay from here on out with 20-30 points in New Jersey's final 37 contests.

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.

Travis Zajac technically scored the game-winning goal in the Devils' 4-3 overtime win against Anaheim on Wednesday.

What actually happened was Zajac kicked the puck to Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller and after that was stopped, Ducks defenseman Ben Lovejoy's clearing attempt bounced off Corey Perry and into the goal. So basically Anaheim accidentally scored on themselves and Zajac just got credit for the goal as a matter of course. "I'll take them any way," Zajac said. "That was one of the luckiest goals I've ever scored, but I'll take those any day of the week."

Travis Zajac is turning his slow start to 2013-14 around as he's posted four points during his last five outings.

Zajac started 2013-14 in tremendously slow fashion with four points in the first 14 contests, but has produced a nice turn around with four points during the last five games. One of the big keys to his turnaround has been the fact that he's been spending a lot of his shifts alongside Jaromir Jagr (close to 75 percent). His shots on goal per game average (1.4) is still a bit low to make him an elite fantasy option, but if you're desperate for help up the middle, Zajac is definitely an option considering he's just five percent owned in Yahoo! leagues.

Travis Zajac's goal on Sunday was the 100th of his NHL career.

Zajac has been slumping this season with only two goals and five points in 15 games. He is a top-six player so perhaps this goal will break him out of his slump.
