New Jersey Devils

Nico Hescher He was limited to 6:24 of icy time in a 2-1 pre-season win at the Montreal Canadiens on Monday due to cramping.

Captain Demons played nine bouts, all in the first period. The illness wasn’t serious, according to coach Lindy Rove.

“Last night was more precautionary,” Rove said on Tuesday. “He’s going to have some tests today just to make sure everything is OK. I had a really good conversation with him, which made me believe he’s going to play again in pre-season, but you never know where some of these things will lead.”

Hescher centered the top line with the left wing Thomas Tatar And the Jesper Pratt on Monday. Jasper BuchvistAnd the Tice Thompson And the Arne Talvite The other three places were against the Canadians.

Minnesota Wild

Kirill Kaprizov He did not train on Tuesday and will not play with Wild in the pre-season game against the Colorado Avalanche.

The striker was injured in the ankle by a shot from his teammate Frederic Goudreu In the third inning of a 3-2 overtime win against Avalanche in Sunday’s pre-season game. He stood on the bench and took his next shift before leaving late and not playing in overtime.

“There are no problems,” Wilde coach Dean Evason said Monday. “He won’t skate today. He doesn’t need to skate today. But he’s fine.
He simply got a bullet right there in the foot. Why put his shoes in it today? Let’s let it calm down and get better.”

Kaprizov will be evaluated daily to see if it makes sense to share or remove him.

“We’ll make sure we’re doing the right things,” Evason said. “In all honesty, I don’t think he is due to play again until the next home game.”

The Wild plays its next four pre-season games on the road before hosting the Chicago Blackhawks on October 6. They open the regular season at home against the New York Rangers on October 13. – Jesse Pierce

He’s a huge guy (6ft-3, 215lbs), shoots a puck very well, skates really well for a big guy, he’s in great shape. He made a real positive impression on management and the apparatus.
