  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Puts up helper

    Lazar posted an assist, four shots on goal and two hits in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Predators.

    Lazar snapped a six-game slump with the primary assist on Timo Meier's go-ahead goal in the third period. Lazar has regularly served as the third-line center lately, though it hasn't translated to improved performances on offense. The 29-year-old has 17 points, 49 shots on net, 113 hits and a plus-13 rating through 47 appearances, putting him on track for a career year.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Good for two goals in overtime win

    Lazar scored two goals in Monday's 6-5 overtime win against the Golden Knights.

    Lazar buried both of his shot attempts, and he finished with a plus-2 rating as well as a blocked shot in 12:53 of ice time across 20 shifts. It wasn't all great, as he lost all three of his faceoff chances, but fantasy managers aren't likely complaining too vehemently. He snapped a 21-game goal drought dating back to Nov. 28, although he does have a respectable six points in 10 appearances in January.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Good to play Wednesday

    Lazar (lower body) is available for Wednesday's game against Washington, according to Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.

    Lazar is drawing back into the lineup after missing three straight games. He has four goals, 10 points, 57 hits and 25 blocks in 30 outings with New Jersey in 2023-24. Lazar's return is particularly timely because coach Lindy Ruff suggested some of New Jersey's forwards are questionable for Wednesday's contest, though he didn't specify who specifically might miss the game.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Won't play Saturday

    Lazar (lower body) isn't ready to return Saturday versus Boston, per Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.

    Lazar also missed the Devils' previous two contests. He has four goals, 10 points, 57 hits and 25 blocks in 30 games this season. When Lazar is healthy, he'll likely serve in a bottom-six capacity.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Game-time decision Friday

    Lazar (undisclosed) is expected to be a game-time decision Friday in Ottawa, according to Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.

    Lazar sat out Wednesday against Columbus as he was "banged up" according to coach Lindy Ruff. Ruff said that he will see how Lazar is feeling after the morning skate, which will determine whether or not the winger will return to the lineup Friday. Lazar has four goals, six assists, 16 PIM, 25 blocked shots and 57 hits this season in 30 contests.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Out Friday

    Lazar (lower body) will not play Friday against Ottawa, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Lazar was a game-time call but will miss his second straight game Friday. The 28-year-old has four goals and 10 points through 30 games this season. He'll be considered questionable ahead of Saturday's game in Boston.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Is day-to-day

    Lazar, who is banged up, is expected to miss Wednesday's game against Columbus and will be regarded as day-to-day beyond that, coach Lindy Ruff told Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.

    Lazar has four goals, 10 points, 16 PIM, 57 hits and 25 blocks in 30 outings this year. He's not expected to be out for long, so perhaps Lazar will even be an option Friday versus Ottawa. In the meantime, defenseman Brendan Smith might serve as a forward Wednesday.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Nabs helper

    Lazar posted an assist in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Canucks.

    Lazar has earned three points over his last four games despite filling a bottom-six role in that span. He played up the lineup at times when the Devils were missing forwards due to injuries. The 28-year-old has eight points, 22 shots on net, 47 hits, 19 blocked shots and a plus-5 rating through 21 appearances. Lazar could challenge his career high of 20 points from 2015-16 if he remains a regular in the lineup.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Pots GWG against Isles

    Lazar scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 victory over the Islanders.

    The 28-year-old journeyman tapped a rebound past Ilya Sorokin with just 23 seconds left in regulation to complete a comeback from a 4-2 deficit. Lazar is playing for his sixth NHL team in 10 seasons, but he could be headed for a career-best campaign in New Jersey with four goals and seven points through 18 games -- he's never scored more than eight goals (set in 2021-22 with Boston) or 20 points (set in 2015-16 with Ottawa) before.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Ready to return

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Not playing Saturday

    Lazar (lower body) is not expected to play Saturday versus the Sabres, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

    Lazar was deemed a game-time decision after exiting early Friday versus the Blue Jackets. The 28-year-old will ultimately miss a game, and it may be more difficult for him to get into the lineup going forward because Nico Hischier (upper body) is set to return to action Saturday. Lazar has chipped in three goals, five points, 19 shots on net, 18 blocked shots and 37 hits in 17 appearances this season.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Slated to be game-time call

    Lazar (lower body) is expected to be a game-time decision Saturday against Buffalo, according to Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.

    Lazar logged just 4:14 of ice time in Friday's 2-1 loss to Columbus. He has generated three goals, two assists, 19 shots on net, 18 blocked shots and 37 hits in 17 contests this campaign.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Five points in last six games

    Lazar scored a goal and added an assist in a 5-2 win over the Penguins on Thursday.

    His goal came shorthanded. Erik Haula stole the puck from Rickard Rakell for a 2-on-1, and he dished to Lazar who wired a wrister that went through Tristan Jarry's five-hole from the right circle. After going eight games without a point, Lazar has five points, including three goals, and 10 shots in his last six games.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Produces helper

    Lazar notched an assist, two shots on goal and six PIM in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Jets.

    Lazar has earned all three of his points this season over the last five games. His helper on a John Marino tally in the second period was Lazar's first assist of the campaign. The bottom-six forward has added 15 shots on net, 25 hits, 14 blocked shots, 12 PIM and a plus-1 rating over 13 appearances.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Gets on scoresheet with goal

    Lazar scored a goal on two shots in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Blues.

    Lazar broke the goose egg on his stat line with a second-period tally, but it was all the Devils could muster against Jordan Binnington. The 28-year-old Lazar has been in the lineup more often than not this season, but he's been almost exclusively in a bottom-six role. He's collected one goal, eight shots on net, 17 hits, 10 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating through nine appearances.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Yet to mark scoresheet in 2023-24

    Lazar had two shots, three blocked shots and a minus-1 rating in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Wild.

    Lazar sees consistent ice time on the third line and contributes on the penalty kill, but he's in the lineup primarily for defensive purposes. The 28-year-old forward had just five points in 49 games split between the Canucks and Devils last season, and he's still searching for his first point of the new campaign.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Nets first goal of playoffs

    Lazar provided a goal in New Jersey's 5-2 loss to the Rangers in Game 6 on Saturday.

    Lazar opened the scoring midway through the first period, but the Devils failed to hold onto that early edge. The marker snapped his seven-game point drought. Lazar had three goals and five points in 49 regular-season outings.

  • Devils' Curtis Lazar: Available if needed

    Lazar (lower body) will be an option for Thursday's matchup with Washington, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Although Lazar has been medically cleared to play, there's no guarantee he'll be in the lineup against the Capitals. The 28-year-old forward has picked up just five points through 48 games split between the Canucks and the Devils this season.
