Analysis: There is no word yet as to whether or not he will miss Sunday's game. With any luck, the injury is just mild and he will return to the ice sooner than later. Nick Palmieri was recently promoted to the second line, so the timing of this injury couldn't have been worse.
News:Nick Palmieri had 12 minutes of ice time and had two shots on goal in his debut for the Wild in Sunday's win over San Jose. "He looks like he could have a place here. He seems like he can fit our game well," head coach Mike Yeo told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "We hope that he can score, but ... the only thing we want to do is identify what kind of player he is and figure out how we can best use him and what kind of role he's best suited for."
Analysis: It looks like he's going to get a chance to carve out a large role with the Wild as he was on the second line. Whether that translates into scoring is another question, but he's worth monitoring on his new team in deeper leagues.
News:Nick Palmieri has been recalled and is expected to play against San Jose on Sunday, Minneapolis Star Tribune writer Michael Russo reports.

News:Nick Palmieri will be a healthy scratch Tuesday against Florida, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis:Nick Palmieri has one goal in the last four games and four on the season. He has not been too effective when in the lineup for the Devils, so his absence likely won't be missed.
News: The Devils have called up Nick Palmieri from AHL Albany, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: In five games with Albany, Nick Palmieri recorded one goal and one assist. The promising Palmeiri hasn't done much with the Devils -- six points in 19 games -- so he's probably not worth a speculative pickup in non-keeper leagues at this time.
News: The Devils assigned Nick Palmieri to AHL Albany on Thursday, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.

News:Nick Palmieri scored two of New Jersey's three goals in Tuesday's loss to Boston.
Analysis:Nick Palmieri has been quiet this season for the Devils with just six points on the season including Monday's outburst against Boston. Palmieri is seeing some power play time and time with Zach Parise at even strength, but he is not cashing in on scoring chances, save for Tuesday. Until he starts producing consistently, even those in keeper leaguers can ignore Palmieri.
News:Nick Palmieri skated alongside Zach Parise and Adam Henrique in Thursday's morning skate, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.
Analysis:Nick Palmieri has struggled this season with just one goal and three assists in 13 games. The Devils are hoping placing the budding power forward next to two of the team's hottest players will benefit Palmieri.

News:Nick Palmieri skated with Adam Henrique and Mattias Tedenby during Saturday's morning skate in Dallas, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis:Nick Palmieri had been skating with Zach Parise and Ilya Kovalchuk during the team's last two games, but the trio had a minimal impact. Palmieri hasn't done much offensively this season, with a goal and two assists while sporting a minus-3 in eight games. He's a young power forward who's still developing, and he can't be relied upon for much production at this stage of his career.
News:Nick Palmieri played right wing alongside Zach Parise and Ilya Kovalchuk during practice Monday, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis:Nick Palmieri receives possibly the largest boost in value out of this trio. The Devils are thin at center with the recent injury to Jacob Josefson (broken clavicle) and Parise broke into the league at center. The team sees Palmieri as a power forward with good offensive potential that can help create space for the team's two dynamic forwards. Palmieri has two assists in six games (both of which came in the same contest) and is a minus-3, but sees 2:39 per game on the power play. While Palmieri does stand to benefit the most, he is also the least proven. Don't jump in too quickly on Palmieri, but it is a good situation for the youngster.
News:Nick Palmieri notched two assists in Monday's win over Carolina, his first two of the season.
Analysis: Life can look good if one produces on a line with Ilya Kovlachuk. Nick Palmieri is still developing but he can benefit from the extra attention paid to Kovalchuk. Palmieri's worth a look in deep keeper leagues, but he won't set the league on fire.
News:Nick Palmieri skated with Ilya Kovalchuk and Dainius Zubrus during practice Wednesday, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis:Nick Palmieri's a young power forward of whom the Devils are expecting a jump in production. Skating with Kovalchuk should free up some space for the winger and he'll likely receive power-play time on the team's second unit, possibly the first.
News:Nick Palmieri drew the praise of coach Peter DeBoer during Saturday's preseason loss to the Islanders, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.
Analysis:Nick Palmieri's one of several young wingers from whom the Devils' will be expecting top-six forward minutes. He's a strong skater that can create space and showed flashes of promise late in the season. DeBoer was happy with the winger's effort and like's what Palmieri offers. Palmieri is still a few years away from developing fully in terms of talent, but those in deep keeper leagues will want to remember his name.
News: Palmieri grabbed the game-winning goal in Friday's victory over Philadelphia, giving him three points in the last two games.
Analysis: Palmieri likely will be alongside Travis Zajac and Zach Parise in Saturday's contest against Montreal and the young winger has three points in the last four games. The Devils like his grinding attitude up front coupled with the skill of his linemates and he's worth remembering in keeper leagues.
News: Palmieri had a shot deflect off his stick and drop into the net on the power play Tuesday night against the Stars. The Devils won the game by a score of 1-0.
Analysis: The rookie was at the right place at the right time, effectively notching his first career power-play marker while helping the Devils secure an eighth consecutive win.
News: Palmieri ended a three-game points drought with a goal in Tuesday's win over Carolina.
Analysis: Palmieri's goal knotted up the game late and allowed New Jersey to eventually secure the overtime win. Palmieri's found a home with Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk under the Jacques Lemaire regime, but he's still young and inconsistent, despite five goals and a plus-7 rating.

News: The Devils recalled Palmieri from Albany (AHL) on Monday, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Of the Devils' stable of promising rookies, Palmieri has the most potential of late to make an impact. Before he left for the AHL he was nicked up with an upper-body injury but did see time on the team's top line alongside Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk. Keep an eye on him.
News: Palmieri (upper body) was sent to the AHL on Thursday, Bergen Record writer Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Palmieri showed a bit of promise to this point in the year by posting four points (three goals) in 10 NHL appearances. He saw a good amount of ice time throughout January and finishes the month with a plus-1 rating.
News: Palmieri (upper body) skated Monday in practice and could return for Wednesday's contest at Detroit, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Palmieri had been heating up prior to suffering an injury Thursday in the win over Pittsburgh. He's a rookie who's skated with Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk, so the Devils have some hopes for him, but he's still a ways away from being reliable.
News: Palmieri (upper body) will miss Sunday's game against the Panthers, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Coach Jacque Lemaire had hoped Palmieri could return Sunday. Palmieri will miss at least one more game, however. We will let you know as soon as he is ready to return, which shouldn't be too long now, plus the All-Star break could help if he does have to miss any more time.
News: Palmieri will not play in Saturday's game after suffering an upper body injury Thursday, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Head coach Jacque Lemaire hopes Palmieri can play Sunday, so fortunately the injury does not appear severe. Consider Palmieri day-to-day for the time being.
News: Palmieri notched his third goal of the season in Thursday's win over Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Palmieri was the beneficiary of a bad Pittsburgh turnover near the goal. The youngster is finding a place on the team's top line with Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk. Keep an eye on him, but he has drawn the favor of coach Jacques Lemaire.
News: The Devils are likely to use the same line combinations for Thursday's contest against Pittsburgh, meaning Palmieri will stay on a line with Ilya Kovalchuk and Travis Zajac.
Analysis: This is certainly a desirable position for the rookie and the team has shown some spark of late, with both Zajac and Kovalchuk getting their names on the scoresheets recently. Palmieri is still finding his stride, but he's impressed interim coach Jacques Lemaire enough to leave him with the scorers. Keep an eye on him.
News: Palmieri scored the Devils' final goal into an empty net, for his first NHL tally, as New Jersey skated by Tampa Bay 6-3 on Sunday.
Analysis: Palmieri scored in his 11th NHL game, while seeing 8:35 of ice time and 14 shifts Sunday.
News: Palmieri will remain with the Devils after being sent to Albany earlier on Friday, the Bergen Record reports.

News: The Devils will reassign Palmieri to Albany of the AHL prior to Friday's game against the Thrashers, the team's official site reports.

News: Palmieri has been recalled from Albany of the AHL, according to the Devils' Official Twitter Feed.
Analysis: Palmieri has a modest 11 points in 24 AHL games this season, and is likely slotted for the third or fourth line during however long his stay will be with the Devils.
News:The Sports Xchange reports Devils RW Nick Palmieri was returned to Lowell (AHL) after playing six games with the Devils. He had one assist and 10 shots.
Analysis: Palmieri, a 2007 third-round pick, is in his first full year of pro hockey. He is nothing more than organizational depth right now and can be ignored in Fantasy.
News:The Sports Xchange reports Devils RW Nick Palmieri, making his NHL debut on Wednesday against the Panthers, found himself getting power play time and then moving up to the top line. He assisted on Travis Zajac's goal and had five shots on goal in a dream first act. His family drove in from Utica, N.Y. for the game. Palmieri and fellow winger Patrick Davis were called in from Lowell (AHL) to inject some life into the Devils' attack.
Analysis: Palmieri, a 2007 third-round pick, is in his first full year of pro hockey. He managed an assist on Wednesday and could stick around for a few more games. But we just aren't sure he is ready to stick in the NHL. Palmieri has marginal Fantasy appeal until further notice.
News: The Devils have called up RW Nick Palmieri and RW Patrick Davis from the AHL.
Analysis: Palmieri has 26 points in 41 games as he embarks on his first full AHL season. A third-round pick from 2007, he isn't worth owning in Fantasy play just yet. Davis, who has 28 points in 44 AHL games this season, is also a non-factor.
