  • Devils' Ondrej Palat: Scores Thursday

    Palat scored a goal on five shots in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Rangers.

    Palat opened the scoring just 39 seconds into the first period, grabbing a loose puck off an offensive-zone faceoff before beating Igor Shesterkin with a deflected wrist shot. Palat now has goals in back-to-back games and three points in the series. The 32-year-old winger brings some rare playoff experience to a young Devils lineup -- he now has 50 goals and 97 points in 143 career postseason contests.

  • Devils' Ondrej Palat: Scores goal in win

    Palat scored a goal on two shots in Monday's Game 4 victory over New York.

    Palat has garnered two points, including a power-play assist, through the opening four games of the playoffs. With his tally, the 32-year-old Czech brought a 21-game goal drought to a close, having last scored back on March 7 against the Leafs. If Palat can get his offensive game going, he would offer the Devils some much-needed scoring depth as they try to advance in what's been a closely contested series with the Rangers.

  • Devils' Ondrej Palat: Delivers clutch helper

    Palat registered an assist in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Senators.

    Palat snapped a nine-game point drought with the secondary helper, which was clutch as it led to the game-winning goal. A groin injury that required surgery has limited Palat to 41 games this season, but with eight goals, 12 assists and a plus-8 rating, the veteran winger is seemingly doing enough to keep him from falling off the map in deep leagues.

  • Devils' Ondrej Palat: Explodes for three points

    Palat scored a goal and two assists on three shots in the Devils' 4-3 loss to the Maple Leafs on Tuesday.

    Palat knotted the game at 2-2 with a power-play goal off a nice pass from Dawson Mercer. He would pick up assists on both of Erik Haula's goals as well. Palat, the former Lightning forward, has heated up of late, scoring five points in his last four games. On the season, he has eight goals and 19 points in 31 games.

  • Devils' Ondrej Palat: Offers helper Sunday

    Palat logged an assist, three shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over the Coyotes.

    Palat set up Jesper Boqvist's second goal of the game to give the Devils a 4-2 lead late in the second period. This was Palat's first helper in the last nine games, and he's added just one goal in that stretch. The 31-year-old winger won't have as many scoring chances in a third-line role, so he's a bit of a risky option for standard fantasy formats. For the season, he has 16 points, 50 shots on net, 57 hits, 33 blocked shots and a plus-8 rating through 30 outings.

  • Devils' Ondrej Palat: Scores in OT victory

    Palat scored a goal on his lone shot in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Vegas.

    Palat opened the scoring Tuesday, working his way to the front of the net before his shot deflected off a Knights' defenseman and past Logan Thompson. The goal is Palat's first in nine games since his return from a two-month stint on the IR with a groin injury. The 31-year-old winger should see his production increase on New Jersey's top line alongside Nico Hischier and Jesper Bratt. Palat has four goals and three assists over 15 games this season.

  • Devils' Ondrej Palat: Grabs apple in overtime loss

    Palat logged an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Kraken.

    Palat is slowly getting back into a groove after a long layoff for a groin injury. He has an assist in each of his last three games, but he hasn't scored a goal in seven contests since his return from a two-month absence. The 31-year-old winger is at six points, 20 shots on net, a plus-4 rating and 30 hits through 13 appearances in his first season with the Devils.

  • Devils' Ondrej Palat: Notches first assist

    Palat recorded an assist in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Kings.

    Palat's helper was his first of the season and his first point in five games since returning from a groin injury. He missed two-plus months while recovering from surgery to repair the injury, so it's no surprise he's been a little slow on offense since he returned. The winger has three tallies, one helper, 16 shots on net, 25 hits and an even plus-minus rating through 11 appearances.

  • Devils' Ondrej Palat: Returns to lineup Thursday

    Palat (groin) will return to the lineup against St. Louis on Thursday.

    Palat has been out of action since Oct. 24, as the original prognosis of 8-10 weeks went just a tad longer than the latter scenario. It is Palat's first season with the Devils after a 10-year career in Tampa Bay. He had three goals in six games before his injury.
