News: Stephen Gionta (ankle) will play Saturday against Carolina, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

News: Stephen Gionta (lower-body) won't play Monday against the Panthers, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

Gionta Scores In Devils' Win

News: Stephen Gionta scored the opening goal in Friday's 2-1 win over Washington, giving him a point in each of the last two games.
Analysis: Stephen Gionta has a mere three goals on the season, but much of what he does with his limited ice time isn't measured. He's a checking forward and isn't going to light the lamp too often.

Devils' Gionta Returning Wednesday

News: Stephen Gionta (ankle) will be in the lineup Wednesday against the Senators, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

Analysis: Stephen Gionta has missed the last 11 games with the sprained ankle, but has returned to practice and informed the coaching staff that he's ready to go for game action.

Devils' Gionta Is Back On Skates

News: Stephen Gionta (ankle) has been skating on his own, but is not ready to practice with the team yet, The Record reports.
Analysis: Stephen Gionta is still on injured reserve, but is progressing toward a return. He has been dealing with ankle injuries much of the season, so the team will likely bring him along slowly to make sure that he's completely healthy upon his return.

Devils' Gionta Moved To IR

News: Stephen Gionta (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: The DL stint is retroactive to Nov. 23, preventing Stephen Gionta from returning to game action this Saturday at the earliest. The Devils haven't indicated whether or not Gionta will be sufficiently recovered by that time, but it should be more apparent by the end of the week.

News: Stephen Gionta (ankle) took part in Wednesday's morning skate and coach Peter DeBoer said it "looks like he'll play" against Anaheim, the Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Less than 24 hours after leaving practice with an ankle injury, Stephen Gionta was back on the ice Wednesday morning, and it sounds like he'll be a go against the Ducks. He has just one assist and a minus-5 rating through 18 games this season.

Devils' Gionta To Take Part In Wednesday's Skate

News: Stephen Gionta (ankle) will take part in Wednesday's morning skate, Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Stephen Gionta left Tuesday's practice with an injured ankle, the same one he hurt against Toronto back on Nov. 8. His ability to take part in morning skate bodes well for his chances of playing Wednesday against the Ducks, but his status is still uncertain.

Devils' Gionta Leaves Practice With Injury

News: Stephen Gionta left Tuesday's practice with an ankle injury, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: The injury occurred when Stephen Gionta was unprepared to make a cut, resulting in his tumbling to the ice before leaving. Gionta had previously hurt his ankle in a Nov. 8 game vs. the Maple Leafs and could be sidelined Wednesday night with the injury if he fails to heal overnight.

Devils' Gionta On Track To Play Friday

News: Stephen Gionta (ankle) took part in morning skate Friday and is likely to play against the Kings, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: The Devils will welcome back both Stephen Gionta and Patrik Elias to the lineup after both were able to skate without discomfort for the past couple of days. Gionta missed the previous two games with a sore right ankle but should see his usual slate of ice time in his return to the lineup.

Stephen Gionta

Devils' Gionta Returns To Practice

News: Stephen Gionta (ankle) returned to practice Thursday, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Last season, Stephen Gionta put up a rather modest 14 points (four goals, 10 assists) in 48 games, and he has just one assist through 16 games this year. He does appear close to a return, however, possibly as early as Friday.

Stephen Gionta

Devils' Gionta Out Tuesday

News: Stephen Gionta (sore right ankle) will not play Tuesday against the Rangers, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Coach Pete DeBoer indicated Stephen Gionta was improving in his recovery from the injury, so it's possible he'll be back in the lineup for Friday's contest against the Kings. Gionta hasn't been especially productive this season, scoring one point in 16 games.

Devils' Gionta Sits Sunday

News: Stephen Gionta (ankle) did not play Sunday against the Predators, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: A feet-first crash into the boards against Toronto on Friday night caused the injury, and the young forward is day-to-day for now.

Devils' Gionta Skips Morning Skate

News: Stephen Gionta was not on the ice for the Devils' morning skate Sunday due to a sore foot/ankle, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: This was somewhat expected after Stephen Gionta got tangled up and sailed into the boards feet-first during Friday's game. He left the game because he rolled his ankle and didn't return, so the fact that he's dealing with some soreness and some swelling isn't surprising. Gulitti later confirmed that Jacob Josefson will be replacing Gionta in Sunday's lineup.

Devils' Gionta Injures Ankle Friday

News: Stephen Gionta injured his right ankle after crashing feet-first into the boards Friday, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: During the second period, Stephen Gionta crashed feet-first into the boards and rolled his ankle. He was slow to get up and headed to the bench for the duration of the period. He did return for the third, which is obviously good news, but we'll see how he feels Saturday morning before declaring him good to go for Sunday's game.

News: Stephen Gionta left Monday's game against the Senators in the first period with an upper-body injury and did not return.

News: Stephen Gionta returned to the bench for the third period of Friday's game against the Canadiens, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
