BLOG: Palmieri Ready to Return

After missing four games heading into the all-star break with a foot injury, Kyle Palmieri is ready to return to the Devils lineup on Monday

by Marc Ciampa / NewJerseyDevils.com

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."

BLOG: Nasreddine on Boqvist's Future

Devils interim head coach Alain Nasreddine talked about Jesper Boqvist, who was sent to Binghamton before the break and hasn't been recalled

by Marc Ciampa / NewJerseyDevils.com

Devils interim head coach Alain Nasreddine spoke following team practice on Sunday on Jesper Boqvist. Boqvist was assigned to AHL Binghamton prior to the bye week but was not recalled upon its conclusion. 

"He's done a lot of good things at this level with us since he started the year. For him, you can't have a young guy like that just playing minimal minutes. I'm sure he'd like to have more (ice time)."

Boqvist had spent the entire season with the Devils to this point. He had four goals in 34 games.  

"For us, it's more about his development, going down there," Nasreddine continued. "There's nothing wrong with going to the American Hockey League.

Boqvist has played three games with the Binghamton Devils with one goal. 

"Most guys go down and play and earn their spot or their ice time. So he'll be in a position where he can play top line minutes, top power play. He can even work on his penalty kill. That's where we see the value right now for Jesper moving forward."

BLOG: Hischier Opts to Practice Despite Not Having To

A day after playing in the NHL All-Star Game, Nico Hischier had a CBA-backed day off but decided to practice with his team anyway

by Marc Ciampa / NewJerseyDevils.com

The Devils had a surprise participant at practice on Sunday when Nico Hischier stepped on the ice. 

"I wasn't sure if he was going to make it for practice, but that was all on him. He wasn't required to be here, per CBA rules," said Devils interim head coach Alain Nasreddine. "He wanted to make sure that he got on the ice and got a good practice in so it was good to see him out there."

Hischier added that he wanted to get on the ice in a real practice situation ahead of the team's game on Monday in Ottawa.

"I felt like I needed to touch the ice a little bit and get a good practice in, so that's why I went out there," he said.

Hischier added that he didn't feel fatigued from all-star weekend and was able to get some downtime before the game. 

"I had a nice bye week in Miami and flew straight to St. Louis," he said. "It was a little bit of rest first. It's a fun week and it's not like you're practicing hard or doing some cardio tests or whatever. So it's a relaxing time."

Nasreddine added that he was proud of Hischier's showing in the game, with two goals. 

"What an experience for Nico and it's great for the organization," he said. "I thought he looked really god, especially in that game."
