Devils Release Veteran Winger Zubrus

News: The Devils terminated Dainius Zubrus' contract Wednesday, making him an unrestricted free agent, Frank Seravalli of TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus had never been much of a top-flight offensive producer in his eight seasons in a Devils uniform, but he saw his scoring output completely fall off a cliff in 2014-15, as he netted just four goals and 10 points across 74 games. With the Devils looking to give some younger players an opportunity in their forward ranks and Zubrus' ice time likely to decline even further in the coming season, the team decided it wasn't worthwhile to keep him around at his $3.1 million cap hit. The 37-year-old could conceivably latch on in a depth role with another club, but no matter where he ultimately lands, an ascension to fantasy relevance probably isn't in the cards.

Devils' Zubrus Snaps 50-Game Goal Drought

News: Dainius Zubrus snapped a 50-game goal drought when he found the net for one of the Devils' two scores in Tuesday's loss to the Wild.
Analysis: The 36-year-old Dainius Zubrus has never provided much in the way of offensive upside, but he's sunk to a new low in 2014-15. He's managed only eight points in 59 games, which has led to a nearly three-minute dip in ice time from a season earlier.

Devils' Zubrus Notches Assist

News: Dainius Zubrus recorded an assist in Saturday's win over the Panthers.
Analysis: The 36-year-old has never been a top-flight scorer, but he seems to be running on fumes at this point. He's produced only two goals and five assists over 42 games, putting him on pace for the lowest point total of his career in any non-lockout season.

Devils' Zubrus To Play Saturday

News: Dainius Zubrus (leg laceration) was activated from injured reserve and will play Saturday against the Rangers, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus will finally return to the Devils' lineup after missing New Jersey's last eight games with the injury. The winger has tallied four points through 28 games this season, giving him rather marginal value.

Devils' Zubrus Skating On Own

News: Dainius Zubrus (leg laceration) skated on his own Friday morning, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus remains on IR and will again sit out Friday's game against the Lightning, but the team does appear to consider him day-to-day in his recovery. He may need to get in a practice or two with the rest of the team before he's formally activated, so a return for Saturday's game probably shouldn't be anticipated either.

Devils Place Zubrus On IR

News: Dainius Zubrus (leg laceration) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: The Devils are still considering Dainius Zubrus day-to-day after he was able to skate earlier in the day, but was moved to IR to create some roster flexibility. Since he's already missed the minimum seven days required for an IR stint, he'll be eligible for activation immediately once he becomes healthier.

Devils' Zubrus Out Again Monday

News: Dainius Zubrus (leg) will not play Monday against the Islanders.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus still has not entirely recovered from a cut on his leg, so he will miss his fourth straight game Monday night. Consider him questionable for New Jersey's next game Wednesday.

Devils' Zubrus Misses Morning Skate

News: Dainius Zubrus (leg) is expected to miss Monday's game against the Islanders, Tom Gulitti of the Record reports.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus did not take part in the team's morning skate, so barring a drastic change in his condition, consider him out for Monday.

Devils' Zubrus To Sit Again Saturday

News: Dainius Zubrus (leg) will not play Saturday against the Stars, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus has had difficulty regaining strength in his left leg after suffering lacerations in Monday's tilt with the Hurricanes. He hasn't resumed practicing and will miss his third straight contest due to the injury.

Devils' Zubrus Ruled Out For Second Straight

News: Dainius Zubrus (leg) will miss Thursday's game against the Flyers, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus took part in the Devils' morning skate but indicated that he was "not quite there yet" with his recovery from the leg injury, so he'll be forced to sit out his second straight contest. A stalwart of the Devils' penalty kill, Zubrus provides more value in real-life terms than in the fantasy arena.

Devils' Zubrus Could Play Thursday

News: Dainius Zubrus (leg) could be available for Wednesday's game against the Flyers.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus sat out the last game due to a cut on his leg, but he traveled to Philadelphia with his teammates Wednesday, and the Devils removed fellow forward Reid Boucher from the roster, so he may be able to return to action after missing the lone contest.

Devils' Zubrus Out Monday

News: Dainius Zubrus will miss Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks due to lacerations on his leg.
Analysis: The winger took a slash to his left leg in Monday's contest and appears to be in too much pain to play through the ailment. Tuesday will mark the first game that he's sat out all season.

Devils' Zubrus Gets Cut On Leg

News: Dainius Zubrus suffered a cut on his left leg during Monday's game against the Hurricanes, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus was limited to just over nine minutes on the ice Monday and should be considered day-to-day moving forward. Unfortunately for Zubrus, the Devils have a quick turnaround and will play the Blackhawks on Tuesday.

Bolts' Zubrus Gets Rare Point

News: Dainius Zubrus picked up an assist Saturday in a loss to the Capitals. It's just his fourth point in 27 games.
Analysis: His value comes on the defensive side of the ledger, not the offensive one. Use, but only if desperate.

Devils' Zubrus Bags Second Goal

News: Dainius Zubrus scored his second goal of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: The Devils place a lot of value in Dainius Zubrus' versatility at both even strength and special teams, but from a fantasy perspective, he may be one of the league's least productive top-six forwards. Zubrus registered only 26 points in 82 games last season and has just two in nine games in 2014-15, making it difficult to extract value from him outside of the deepest of leagues.

Devils' Zubrus Nets Goal

News: Dainius Zubrus was credited with the game-winning goal in Thursday's 6-4 victory over the Flyers.
Analysis: After Vincent Lecavalier tied things up at 4-4 with 15 minutes to play in the third period, Dainius Zubrus answered with the go-ahead score less than three minutes later. He finished the night with a plus-2 rating, two shots on goal and two blocked shots on the evening, but don't expect the offense to show up with much consistency. Though technically a top-six forward for the Devils, Zubrus is valued more for his versatility to help out at both even strength and on the penalty kill, which doesn't translate to much fantasy utility.

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.
