Kyle Palmieri missed the final four games before the all-star break and the club had some struggles without their leading scorer, going 1-3. He skated on Sunday and will be back Monday which is a very welcome sight according to Devils interim head coach Alain Nasreddine. 

"It's nice to have him back. He has a big veteran presence. A lot of leadership on our team. It's good to have him back and he looked great," said Nasreddine. "He'll be in tomorrow."

Palmieri talked about the fortune of the injury coming in a period of time where the team did not play much due to the break and bye week. 

"It limited the amount of games I ended up missing, which is great," he said, adding that it was good to get on the ice right before the break to help in a speedy recovery. 

"I started skating in the last couple of days, so I got a couple times on the ice by myself, me and (Ben Street) were skating a couple times last week."
