Description: Devils center Travis Zajac will have to be more productive this season if he expects to keep his top-line center position.
Insight: The Devils are hoping the addition of Michael Cammalleri on the wing along with Jaromir Jagr will increase Zajac's production. It better because Zajac was somewhat inefficient with 48 points while averaging 20 minutes a game. Even though other players might do more with the same opportunity, Zajac is still a quality fantasy play as long as he can keep his top line spot.
 
4/13/2014 10:46:00 PM
Description: Devils center Travis Zajac had a goal and an assist Sunday to end the season with 48 points in 80 games.
Insight: Zajac (18 G, 30 A) had back-to-back seasons with at least 62 points in 2009 and 2010 but hadn't produced more than 44 points in any of his other five NHL seasons before this one.
 
3/18/2014 10:03:00 PM
Description: Travis Zajac had a hand in both New Jersey goals Tuesday in a loss to Boston.
Insight: He scored on one and assisted on the other. Nine of Zajac's 38 points this season have come in the month of March.
 
Hot3/11/2014 9:53:00 PM
Description: Devils center Travis Zajac has picked up six points in March.
Insight: Zajac (12 G, 23 A) produced four of them over his last two games, including a goal Tuesday at Philadelphia. The 28-year-old has 35 ponts in 64 games.
 
3/8/2014 10:01:00 PM
Description: Devils center Travis Zajac had a goal and two assists Saturday against the Hurricanes.
Insight: Zajac (11 G, 23 A) has five points in his last five games after producing none in the four before that. The 28-year-old is a low-end fantasy option.
 
11/6/2013 5:28:00 PM
Description: Devils center Travis Zajac (ankle) will return to action Thursday after missing the last two games.
Insight: The Devils were shut out in both games without Zajac, but he likely wouldn't have made a difference. The 28-year-old has one goal, four points and 21 SOG in 12 games this season and hasn't been a fantasy option since 2009-10.
 
11/3/2013 10:38:00 AM
Description: Devils center Travis Zajac is doubtful for Sunday's game against Minnesota with a sprained right ankle.
Insight: Zajac (1 G, 3 A) didn't play Saturday and may not even make it onto the flight to Minnesota. Jacob Josefson would play in his place.
 
3/23/2013 10:12:00 PM
Description: Devils center Travis Zajac handed out two assists for the second straight game Saturday against the Panthers.
Insight: Zajac found Patrik Elias and David Clarkson for goals in the second period. He has been a disappointment this year with five goals and eight assists in 32 games despite getting extended ice time as a center for all of the team's top scorers.
 
2/15/2013 9:50:00 PM
Description: Devils center Travis Zajac had his first point of February with a goal Friday against the Flyers.
Insight: Zajac scored a goal in each of the first two games but he had no goals and one assist over his last 11 contests. He's yet to prove that he can succeed without Zach Parise.
 
1/22/2013 10:16:00 PM
Description: Devils center Travis Zajac already has two goals in two games. He scored once on five shots Tuesday against Philadelphia.
Insight: Zajac missed all but 15 games last season but he has returned to the team's top line to start the season.
 
3/25/2012 9:38:00 PM
Description: Playing for the first time since December, Travis Zajac picked up an assist for the Devils in their 5-2 loss to Pittsburgh Sunday night.
Insight: Zajac has been hobbled by an achilles injury all season so it's good to see him back on the ice. He had 44 points a year ago when he was healthy, so Zajak might be able to give your fantasy team a lift down the stretch.
 
8/18/2011 3:03:00 PM
Description: Travis Zajac is expected to be sidelined for 8-10 weeks following surgery on his left Achilles tendon. TSN
Insight: Zajac was injured during off-ice training in his hometown of Winnipeg. His ironman streak of 401 consecutive games played will likely end, as he will probably miss the first few weeks of the regular season.

Description: Zajac played his 388th straight game for the Devils Tuesday night, tying him for the franchise record with Ken Daneyko.

3/12/2011 1:23:00 AM
Description: Travis Zajac scored two power-play goals in the Devils' 3-2 win over Atlanta on Friday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Patrik Elias assisted on both of Zajac's goals. Zajac's second goal won the game in overtime for the Devils, who are pulling out all the stops to avoid mathematical elimination from the playoffs. Prior to this game, Zajac had scored just one goal in his previous 13 games. He has just 12 goals all season, although he also has 28 assists.
 
2/7/2011 11:05:00 AM
Description: Zajac contributed a goal and two assists to the winning effort Sunday.
Insight: It was the second straight multi-point outing and second straight game with a goal for Zajac, who has just 31 points (nine goals) for the season. (RapidDraft.com)
 
2/6/2011 6:51:00 PM
Description: Travis Zajac scored a goal and added two assists with a +2 in the Devils' 4-1 win over Montreal on Sunday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Like his team, Zajac hasn't had the greatest season with just nine goals in 53 games. However, he has five points (2g-3a) and a +4 in his last two games, so he might be worth a waiver-wire add if someone else dropped him earlier this season.
 
12/24/2010 8:05:00 AM
Description: Zajac scored the lone goal for the Devils in a 5-1 loss to the Islanders.
