Martin Havlat RW NJ 1 Month

Havlat (lower body) is a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Bruins, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.

The perennially injured winger practiced with the team Sunday, and could make his return to the lineup Monday in Boston. He was decently productive when healthy, recording a goal and two assists in five games, and could be valuable if he can manage to stay healthy.

Havlat practiced with the team Sunday, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

Havlat has been out since Oct. 23 with a lower-body injury, but his presence at practice suggests he is nearing a return. His next opportunity to return will come Monday against the Bruins, and his return could be needed with Adam Henrique and Ryan Clowe's status unclear.

Havlat (lower body) will miss at least two more games for the Devils, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.

Havlat recently resumed skating on his own, but because he's not yet at the point where he can practice, the Devils won't bring him along on their trip to St. Louis on Thursday or Detroit on Friday. The forward has been out since Oct. 21 with the injury and isn't believed to be far away from a return.

Havlat (undisclosed) did not practice Monday, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.

Havlat missed Saturday's game against the Senators as well, and is apparently dealing with a few injuries. The winger has been plagued by injuries throughout his career, and although he's expected to be back soon, it's not a good sign that he's already banged up once again.

Havlat (undisclosed) will not play Saturday against the Senators, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.

Havlat will end up sitting out both ends of the Devils' weekend back-to-back, after coach Pete DeBoer acknowledged Friday that the forward was felled by "a couple of things." He's still viewed as day-to-day and is generally expected to reenter the lineup at some point next week.

Though Havlat has recently missed a game due to facial cuts, coach Pete DeBoer attributed his absence from Friday's tilt with the Stars to an undisclosed injury, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.

DeBoer noted that Havlat was dealing with "a couple of other things" beyond the facial cuts, but declined to elaborate further. At any rate, he'll step out of the lineup for the second time in three games, with Damien Brunner slotting in on the second line in his stead.

Havlat (face) appears doubtful to play Friday against the Stars, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.

Though Havlat returned to the lineup Tuesday after painful cuts on his face forced him to sit out the Devils' previous game, it sounds like the forward might have suffered a setback in his return. He's been absent for practice for each of the last two days, and barring some quick healing overnight, it looks like he'll be in the press box Friday night.

Havlat did not take part in Thursday's practice, The Ledger reports.

The reason for Havlat's absence was not provided, so it puts into question his availability for the Devils' next game Friday. Expect an update on his status prior to the beginning of Friday's matchup with the Stars.

Havlat (face) will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Rangers.

Havlat was held out of Saturday's lineup to receive additional time to recover from the cuts he suffered to his face last Thursday, and it appears he's healed well over the past few days. Tuomo Ruutu will head to the press box to accommodate the return of Havlat, who will serve as the second-line right winger.
