Devils coach John Hynes isn't sure whether Hall (knee) will play again this season, though he's been pleased with how the star winger's off-ice rehab efforts have gone, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hall has missed exactly three months with a knee injury that ended up requiring arthroscopic surgery in late February. While the Devils have been reluctant to completely shut him down for the rest of the season, the fact remains that he hasn't been skating in his rehab. It's always difficult to drop a fantasy stud like Hall -- especially around the fantasy playoffs -- but he's already been ruled out through March and there are only three games on New Jersey's schedule in April.

Coach John Hynes relayed Monday that Hall (knee) has been ruled out through the end of March, as he won't return until the season's last two-three games at the earliest, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

New Jersey's third-to-last game of the season comes on April 1, so Hall won't be back earlier than that, if at all. It may be time for owners who have been holding on to last season's Hart Trophy winner to cut bait, especially if they lack an IR spot in which to stash Hall, who last suited up Dec. 23.

Hall had arthroscopic surgery on his knee, which raises doubts about his availability the rest of the season, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Devils have kept the nature of Hall's injury close to the vest, but the fact that he underwent a procedure on his knee explains why the world-class winger has been limited to off-ice work and unable to skate of late. At this point, the Calgary native should probably be considered week-to-week, though he is running out of weeks in the season.

Hall (lower body) wasn't on the ice for Wednesday's game-day skate, instead doing some off-ice conditioning work, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

While general manager Ray Shero painted an optimistic picture for Hall's timeline to return, the fact that the winger is still unable to consistently skate likely means he is still week-to-week at this point. The Calgary native was poised for another Hart Trophy caliber campaign before getting hurt, as he notched 37 points in 33 appearances. Once Hall is given the green light to return, he figures to immediately retake his spot on the top line and No. 1 power-play unit.

Hall (lower body) has not experienced any setback in his recovery and is itching to get back into the lineup, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Devils GM Ray Shero was the one to provide the update on his team's biggest star. "(Hall) wants to play really badly," he said. "But we'll see where he's at." Reading between the lines, Hall won't be ready to go Monday, but it sounds like owners won't have to wait too much longer to activate him for fantasy purposes.

Hall (lower body) skated by himself before Sunday morning's practice, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is a big step for Hall's recovery, and coach John Hynes said Hall is still on pace to return at some point this year. He'll need to get some full practices under his belt before that's possible. The Devils could desperately use him as they've lost 13 of 23 games without Hall in the lineup.

According to Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site, there's a chance that Hall (lower body) will be able to resume skating by the end of the week.

EDGE Analysis

Hall has already missed the Devils' last 20 contests due to a lower-body injury, and there are still several hurdles that he'll need to clear before returning to game action. The next major step in the reigning Hart Trophy winner's rehab will involve him joining his teammates for practice, so another update on his status should surface once that occurs.

Hall (lower body) remains out of commission for Saturday's game against the Canadiens, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hall visited with a doctor Thursday with hopes of news that he'd be ready to return soon. No such news has surfaced at this point, so owners will need to be patient with the star winger while he continues working his way back. He will likely need to get in a practice session or two before retaking the ice in game action.

Hall (lower body) did not skate Thursday as he was visiting with a doctor, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Considering that Hall didn't skate in the latest session and remains on injured reserve, don't expect him to play against the Rangers on Thursday. The stud winger has already missed the past 14 games, and owners can only hope to see Hall in action against the Canadiens on Saturday. Check back to see whether he ends up taking the team charter for that game.

Hall (lower body) will not be in the lineup against Pittsburgh on Monday, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hall will miss his 14th consecutive game due to his lower-body issue. Even the extra time off with the bye week and All-Star break, the world-class winger still hasn't been able to get back to 100 percent. The team has yet to provide a timeline on the Calgary native's potential return, but Thursday's clash with New York could still be an option if he is able to join the team for practice Tuesday and Wednesday.
