Taylor Hall will miss his second straight game for precautionary reasons when the New Jersey Devils play the Arizona Coyotes at Gila River Arena on Saturday.
The 28-year-old forward, who leads New Jersey with 25 points (six goals, 19 assists) in 30 games, can become an unrestricted free agent July 1, 2020, and is a potential trade target.
Hall was a late scratch for the Devils in their 3-1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Friday. The loss extended the Devils' season-long winless streak to seven games (0-6-1).
The Coyotes lead the Pacific Division and are 4-2-0 in their past six games. They are 2-3-1 in their past six home games.
Darcy Kuemper, who made 28 saves in a 5-2 home win against the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday, will start. He is 0-3-2 in five career games against New Jersey.
Players to watch
Devils forward Jack Hughes had one goal and two assists in New Jersey's 5-3 loss to the Coyotes at Prudential Center on Oct. 25.
Coyotes forward Clayton Keller has 10 points (three goals, seven assists) in his past 11 games.
