Zajac tallied a pair of helpers -- including a power-play assist -- in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Stars.

EDGE Analysis

Zajac's first assist came on Kyle Palmieri's opening goal less than five minutes into the game. The 33-year-old then added his second one of the evening on Brian Boyle's power-play marker late in the second period to tie the game 4-4. Zajac remains a big part of the Devils attack, logging just under 19 minutes of ice time per game, but it's his power-play usage that really adds to his value. He finished Wednesday's contest with 4:12 of power-play ice time, and for the season has averaged 2:13.

Zajac scored a power-play goal and added an assist at even strength in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Golden Knights.

EDGE Analysis

The Devils found themselves in a 3-0 hole after the first period, but Zajac's 10th goal of the season early in the second got the comeback started. The 33-year-old has been struggling over the last month, getting held off the scoresheet entirely in 10 of his last 13 games, but his 19 points in 29 games on the season is still his best scoring pace since 2009-10.

Zajac lit the lamp and set up another goal in a 6-3 win over Los Angeles on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Zajac hadn't been doing much of anything before this game, as he'd failed to register a point in eight of his past nine contests and hadn't recorded an assist since Nov. 15. If another owner has given up on him, it might be a good time to buy low, as he's shown in the past that he's capable of much more than he'd done in the past two weeks.

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.
