Devils' Zubrus Scores Two

News: Dainius Zubrus scored two goals in Saturday's win over Carolina.
Analysis: He has three goals in his last three games, but had gone 20 games before that without one. And he had just one assist in those 20 outings. He's a difficult activation because he plays a truly defensive role and that means the droughts could be long.

Zubrus To Play Saturday

News: Dainius Zubrus (face) will play in Saturday's game against the Islanders after taking a rough hit in Thursday's shootout loss to Phoenix, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus was roughed up a bit on Thursday but should be good to go Saturday. He remains on the team's "top" line with Jaromir Jagr and Travis Zajac as the player doing the dirty work, but he's been rather quiet of late despite seeing top-six minutes. Traditionally, he's not been a hugely productive player, a player worth more to his team than most fantasy rosters.

Devils' Zubrus Looking To Rebound

News: Dainius Zubrus had just one point in 11 games prior to the Olympic break and has recovered from a minor lower-body injury.
Analysis: The Devils will need Dainius Zubrus to produce a bit more considering he does see time as a top-six forward, sometimes alongside Jaromir Jagr and Travis Zajac. Despite seeing time alongside scoring players in his career, Zubrus has never been the most consistent offensive player. He's worth more to the Devils than most rosters as he can be used in all situations without hurting the team too much.

Devils' Zubrus Will Play Friday

News: Dainius Zubrus (lower body) will play Friday against the Predators, Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: After making it through warmups without issue, Dainius Zubrus has been given the green light to play against Nashville. He'll occupy his normal spot on the top line.

Devils' Zubrus Taking Warmups Friday

News: Dainius Zubrus (lower body) was on the ice for pregame warmups Friday, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: With game time creeping near, official word on Dainius Zubrus' status still has not been passed along, but it looks like he'll be a go. He was skating in a line with Travis Zajac and Jaromir Jagr during warmups, as usual.

Devils' Zubrus A Game-Time Decision Friday

News: Dainius Zubrus (leg) will be a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Predators, Rich Chere of The Ledger reports.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus injured his leg in Thursday's game, and the Devils have not decided whether or not he will play Friday night. The Devils made a roster move Friday, so it's not quite clear how the line combinations would shake out should Zubrus be unable to play.

Devils Zubrus Suffers Injury

News: Dainius Zubrus suffered an apparent leg/knee injury while blocking a shot in Thursday's win over the Stars, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus took a shot off his left leg during the third period and wasn't able to return. Devils coach Pete DeBoer didn't have any updates after the game, simply saying, "We'll see in the morning." Looking on the bright side, Zubrus netted his 10th goal of the season Thursday. For the time being, he can be considered questionable for Friday's game in Nashville.

Devils' Zubrus Nets Two; Streak At Four Games

News: Dainius Zubrus scored two goals in the third period of Saturday's game to help deliver a 3-1 win over Tampa Bay.
Analysis: He has quietly strung together a four-game, five-point (three goals, two assists) streak and has 17 points in 34 games. Those numbers certainly aren't earth shaking, but they provide deep-league owners with a reliable source for offense in your bottom half.

Zubrus Scores In New Jersey Loss

News: Dainius Zubrus scored his fifth goal of the season in Friday's loss to Pittsburgh, giving him a point in each of the last three games.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus has been seeing time at even strength with Jaromir Jagr and Travis Zajac but hasn't been putting up top-six numbers. Zubrus has played with the Devils' top line before, usually doing most of the dirty work. He won't score often and he's more valuable to the Devils than to most leagues.

Devils' Zubrus Scores Two Points In Win

News: Dainius Zubrus contributed a goal and assist and finished with a plus-3 rating in Friday's win over the Flames.
Analysis: Like several of his Devils' mates, Dainius Zubrus has rebounded from a dormant first month of the season to show some productivity, totaling nine points in last 10 games. Now that he's finally clicking alongside Travis Zajac and Jaromir Jagr, Zubrus should merit more attention from fantasy owners looking to bolster their scoring totals.

Devils' Zubrus Tallies First Goal in Loss

News: Dainius Zubrus scored his first goal of the season during the Devils' loss to the Flames on Friday.
Analysis: The 35-year-old veteran continues to produce well on the ice and still makes for a good supporting player on fantasy rosters. He's not going to dazzle you with a lot of goal scoring, but he'll be steady throughout the year. After 16 years in the NHL, the fact that he is plus-8 for his career says a lot about his abilities on the ice.

Devils Re-Sign Zubrus

News: Dainius Zubrus will remain with New Jersey after agreeing to a three-year contract valued at $3 million per season, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus would have been an unrestricted free agent had he not re-upped with the Devils. Statistically, Zubrus will not set the league on fire with nine points in 22 games this season, missing substantial time due to a wrist injury, but he fits well with New Jersey. The versatile veteran can play all three forward positions in any situation. He makes more of an impact as a checking forward and penalty killer, but he can take over a physical role on a scoring line as he has done in the past. His best offensive days are behind him and, unless your league counts defensive stats, Zubrus will have more value to the Devils than most fantasy rosters.

Zubrus Scores In New Jersey Win

News: Dainius Zubrus scored the final goal in the Devils' 6-2 win over Florida on Saturday. He has a point in each of the last two games.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus has been giving the Devils a solid all-around effort since returning from a wrist injury two weeks ago. He's a versatile player whose value lies more in what he does on the ice than in the realm of fantasy hockey.

Zubrus Back In Business For New Jersey

News: Dainius Zubrus (wrist) will be back in the New Jersey lineup Monday against the Islanders, the Record reports.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus -- who will be suiting up for the first time since partially tearing a ligament in his left wrist back on February 5 -- is on track to skate on a line with Adam Henrique and Matt D'Agostini on Monday.

Devils' Zubrus To Return Monday

News: Dainius Zubrus joined the Devils for Monday's morning skate and likely will skate with Adam Henrique and Matt D'Agostini against the Islanders later in the day, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus had been out for nearly six weeks with wrist surgery and will be a welcomed addition to the team's corps of forwards with his versatility.

Devils' Zubrus Skating, Still Out

News: Dainius Zubrus (wrist) skated and took shots on goal Sunday but will not travel with the Devils on their upcoming road trip, thus ruling him out the next three games, according to the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus is nearing a return, something that would be welcomed with the possibility of Ilya Kovalchuk being out 2-to-4 weeks with a shoulder injury. Odds are Zubrus can return sometime next week, but he's definitely out Monday against Ottawa and for the team's swing through Florida later in the week.

New Jersey's Zubrus Out 4-6 Weeks

News: Dainius Zubrus underwent successful wrist surgery Thursday and will miss 4-6 weeks of action.
Analysis: With Dainius Zubrus sidelined, the Devils made a move to bolster their depth up front by acquiring Alexei Ponikarovsky in a trade with the Jets.

Devils' Zubrus (Wrist) Could Miss 2-to-8 Weeks

News: Dainius Zubrus will have exploratory surgery on his wrist Thursday and could miss anywhere from two-to-eight weeks, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: It's a pretty vague timetable, but it looks like Dainius Zubrus will at least miss a few weeks of action following surgery. With Zubrus on the shelf, the Devils traded for Alexei Ponikarovsky from Winnipeg.

New Jersey's Zubrus On IR

News: Dainius Zubrus (upper body) has been placed on IR, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Though GM Lou Lamoriello did not specify the nature of Dainius Zubrus' injury, he did acknowledge that the next 48 hours will determine which course of action will be taken. The report notes that Zubrus' issue is being treated with medication and that surgery has not been ruled out.

Devils' Zubrus Still Sidelined

News: Dainius Zubrus will miss his fourth game in a row on Tuesday (against the Hurricanes) with an upper-body injury, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus did not take the ice for Tuesday's morning skate and remains in the day-to-day category as Friday's game against the Flyers approaches.

Devils Say Zubrus Injury Could Be Serious

News: Dainius Zubrus (upper body) will miss Saturday's contest against Pittsburgh with what could be a serious injury, as noted by the Newark Star-Ledger's Rich Chere. According to Tom Gulitti of The Bergen Record, Zubrus will miss Sunday's game in Pittsburgh as well.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus will now have missed two games, but the team is concerned that the injury may require surgery. Zubrus is a versatile forward the Devils use in every situation, but won't offer much offensive consistency to your roster. Stay tuned, as this injury could affect the Devils quite a bit should Zubrus be out for an extended period of time.

Devils' Zubrus (Upper Body) Won't Play Saturday

News: Dainius Zubrus (upper body) will not play Saturday against the Penguins, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: After being unable to take part in Friday's practice, Dainius Zubrus will sit against Pittsburgh on Saturday. Perhaps another day to rest up will do the trick, but consider Zubrus questionable heading into Sunday's tilt.

New Jersey's Zubrus Banged Up

News: Dainius Zubrus will miss Thursday's game against the Lightning with an upper body injury, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Stefan Matteau skated at left wing with Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk during Thursday's morning skate and if he suits up for the team's contest against Tampa Bay, then the first year of his entry-level contract will kick in. As for Dainius Zubrus, until more details are revealed about what's ailing him, we'll consider him day-to-day.

New Jersey's Zubrus On Top Line?

News: Dainius Zubrus has been skating on the left side of Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk during the first several days of training camp, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: This shouldn't be too much of a surprise, as Dainius Zubrus has seen top-6 minutes with the likes of Kovalchuk, Zajac, Patrik Elias and former Devil Zach Parise before. While this is a good situation, the odds are that Zubrus will be the first man into the zone and do the dirty work in the corners and in front of the net. The Devils use Zubrus in a variety of situations, but, even with this prime real estate, Zubrus likely won't produce too much. He has been seeing time with the second power-play unit.

Line Promotion For Devils' Zubrus

News: Dainius Zubrus will skate on New Jersey's first line with Travis Zajac and Zach Parise in Monday's Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals, the Newark Star-Ledger's Rich Chere reports.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus has been a versatile player during his career with the Devils and has skated with Zajac and Parise before. However, Zubrus isn't always the most productive player even when surrounded by talented linemates. Look for Zubrus to do the dirty work in the corners and in front of the net as well as being active on the forecheck along with Parise.
