Mike Cammelleri Back with New Jersey Devils

Posted by David King on 1/24/2016 7:21:58 AM

Earlier in the week the New Jersey Devils welcomed back forward Mike Cammalleri, 33 after missing the last eight games due to a right hand injury he sustained during a 3-0 win on December 30, 2015 at the Ottawa Senators. There were several key plays during the recent game against the Senators which helped the Devils skate away victorious.

Many have expressed the opinion that the Devils offense has suffered without the popular forward lacing up his skates. The stats reflect the same considering the team was 0 for 17 on the power play and had only scored 11 goals during the eight games he sat out. Cammalleri is an undisputed resource for the Devils, still leading the team with his season record of 35 points, 21 assists and 14 goals in the 38 games he played in before the injury. Cammalleri stated he has continued skating even though he has to sit out of the lineup. Devils head coach John Hynes said that they are watching how the forward responds during the team’s practices before making a decision on when he will return.

Cammalleri was officially back last Tuesday, just in time to best the Calgary Flames with a final score of 4-2. Stating after the game his hand felt great, he missed practice on Wednesday, at home suffering from the flu and didn’t participate in Thursday’s optional morning skate, either. Cammalleri is on the lineup for the Saturday night game against the Winnipeg Jets and will hopefully bring to the ice what the team needs. Their game against the Jets have current odds at +115 for the New Jersey Devils and -135 for the Jets. In consideration of book making, the Jets have a current season record of 12-9-1 at home and the Devils are touting a record of 5-5-1 for their last eleven played this season. The New Jersey team is looking at the next two games, both on the road, to match the previous number of consecutive wins this season. The team was able to go on a 4 game winning streak last October. After the road games the team will move into the All-Star break.
