Zajac registered two assists -- including a power-play helper -- in Thursday's 4-3 road loss to the Red Wings.

EDGE Analysis

One more assist and Zajac will have 300 for his career. While New Jersey has some exciting young players on board -- Nico Hischier and Will Butcher are the first to come to mind -- don't sleep on the 33-year-old center in Zajac, as he's a dependable top-six contributor responsible for directing the No. 2 power-play unit.

Zajac logged 20:01 of ice time Thursday failing to record a point in a 4-3 loss to the Predators.

EDGE Analysis

Zajac didn't do much in his return to the lineup, failing to even record a shot on goal. He did manage to dish out a hit and block a shot which could salvage points in leagues featuring more complex scoring systems. Zajac will look to get more involved on the scoresheet Saturday versus the Panthers.

Zajac (lower body) is slated to return to the lineup against the Predators on Thursday, per Tom Gulitti of NHL.com.

EDGE Analysis

Zajac will get back into action after just one game on the sidelines. Prior to getting hurt, the center notched points in back-to-back games. The Winnipeg native figures to slot into a third-line center role, in addition to reclaiming his spot on the power play where he is averaging 4:04 of ice time.

Zajac's (lower body) availability for Thursday's matchup with Nashville has yet to be determined, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Zajac did take the ice for Wednesday's practice, which is certainly a good sign that he is nearing a return. If the center is unable to play versus the Predators, it would seem there's a good chance he is ready in time to face off with Florida on Saturday.

Zajac (lower body) will not play in Saturday's game against the Flyers, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Zajac logged just 9:20 of ice time in Thursday's matchup with the Avalanche before sustaining the injury, which will apparently hold him out of commission for at least one more game. Blake Coleman appears slated to center the second line in his absence, while Zajac will have extended time to rest up with the team not returning to action after Saturday until next Thursday.

Zajac (lower-body) will likely not return in Thursday's game against Colorado.

EDGE Analysis

In the second period, Zajac looked hobbled on his walk to the locker room, supposedly not putting weight on his right leg in the departure. It's worth noting, however, that he was able to walk down the tunnel on his own power. An update from the team should surface sooner than later, providing an update on his status for Saturday's game against the Flyers.

Zajac kicked off the season Saturday with two goals in a 5-2 win over Edmonton.

EDGE Analysis

One of the snipes was the game winner. Zajac is on the downside of a decent career and shouldn't be counted on for fantasy purposes this year. Nice night, though.

Zajac will sit out the regular-season finale Saturday against the Capitals for rest purposes, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Zajac closes out the 2017-18 campaign having totaled 26 points -- 12 goals and 14 assists -- over 65 games this season and will attempt to parlay his last-season success of four points in his last five games played into production as the postseason approaches.

Zajac scored a goal and added a power-play assist during Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran has settled into a secondary role for the majority of the season, and with 12 goals and 14 assists through 62 games, he hasn't provided fantasy value in most settings. However, Zajac has been promoted to the No. 1 power-play unit of late, so he could be a worth a flier in daily contests.
