Tlusty failed his pre-camp physical with Colorado.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear why he failed the physical, but it could have something to do with his wrist surgery in January. No matter the reason, this isn't a good start for Tlusty, who was going to attend training camp as a tryout.

Tlusty (wrist) will participate in Colorado's training camp on a professional tryout, Drew Spevak of Denver Sports 760 reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tlusty missed the second half of the 2015-17 season after sustaining a wrist injury with New Jersey. The winger has never quite been able to replicate what he has with Carolina, while also having been plagued with injuries. If the 28-year-old makes the roster in Colorado, fantasy owners will most likely want to look elsewhere for low cost value picks as he may struggle for consistent ice time.

Tlusty (upper body) will be out 3-4 months after undergoing surgery on his right wrist, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Based on that timeline, Tlusty is likely to miss the remainder of the regular season. He's proven to be a fragile forward with injuries largely standing as the reason why he's logged 82 games in a season (2014-15) only once in his eight-year career.

Tlusty (upper body) won't return to the Devils lineup Tuesday against Calgary, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tlusty will miss a fifth consecutive game Tuesday with an upper-body injury he suffered on Jan. 8 against the Bruins, and is still without a definitive timetable for his return to game action. The 27-year-old winger is still on injured reserve, however, meaning the Devils should announce his activation once he's fit to play.

Tlusty (upper body) did not play in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Coyotes.

EDGE Analysis

Tlusty is one of four forwards on injured reserve for the Devils, but the team doesn't have another game until Tuesday, when they take on the Flames. Tlusty should be reevaluated ahead of that contest.

Tlusty is dealing with an upper-body injury, Tom Gulliti of the The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger noted in a separate report that Tlusty has been placed on injured reserve with Joseph Blandisi getting called up from AHL Albany. Tlusty will be eligible to return Jan. 16 against the Coyotes, yet more details about his injury could surface ahead of that timeframe.

Tlusty put the nail in the coffin with a third-period goal Tuesday night against the Sabres, helping the Devils to a 2-0 win.

EDGE Analysis

Buffalo had an errant pass in its own zone, and Tlusty zeroed in on the puck, blasting it between the posts. Tlusty has often been hampered by a shoulder injury this season, so it's good to see him produce after going pointless in his first two games since being activated from injured reserve.

Tlusty (shoulder) was activated off injured reserve Friday, Rich Chere of The Star-Ledger reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tlusty's activation makes him a likely participant in Friday night's contest with Detroit. The 13th-overall pick in the 2006 Draft is slated to play left wing on New Jersey's second line, along with Kyle Palmieri and Joseph Blandisi.

Tlusty (shoulder) will travel with the team ahead of Tuesday's game in Toronto, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tlusty looks set to return to the lineup Tuesday, where he will likely find himself in a bottom-six role. The former first-pound pick has missed New Jersey's last eight games, though he has been highly ineffective in the 16 games has has played this season (one goal, three points).
