Insight: He won't be on the ice Wednesday when the Devils host Carolina. Brunner hasn't produced a point since October 26th, a span of 12 games in a row without scoring.
 
11/21/2013 4:57:00 PM
Description: Devils forward Damien Brunner will be a healthy scratch Thursday, according to Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record.
Insight: Brunner has zero points in his last 10 games and three in his last 17 after producing three goals, four points and 15 SOG in the first three. Fantasy owners can safely drop him.
 
10/22/2013 5:26:00 PM
Description: Devils forward Damien Brunner (upper body) is expected to return to action Tuesday against the Blue Jackets, according to Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record.
Insight: Coach Pete DeBoer said Brunner will play, "as long as he doesn't seize up here between now and game time." The winger suffered an upper-body injury on Oct. 13 at Winnipeg and hasn't played since Oct. 17.

Description: New Jersey center Damien Brunner is expected to be a game-time decision ahead of Saturday's 7 p.m. start against the Rangers. SOURCE: The Bergen Record
Insight: The Devils wouldn't reveal his injury, just saying that Brunner is "dealing with some nagging stuff." It sounds like the usual wear and tear of a grinding season and nothing serious. Our money's on Brunner suiting up tonight against the Blue Shirts.
 
10/4/2013 10:18:00 PM
Description: Devils forward Damien Brunner had two goals on four shots Friday against the Islanders.
Insight: He did that after taking eight SOG in the season opener Thursday. With David Clarkson and Ilya Kovalchuk gone, the Devils needs players like Brunner to fill the void. Fantasy owners shouldn't overlook the second-year player.
 
10/3/2013 9:45:00 PM
Description: Devils forward Damien Brunner had eight SOG in the season opener Thursday.
Insight: David Clarkson, who signed with Toronto in the offseason, led the Devils in 2012-13 with 180 SOG, 47 more than any other player on the team. The Devils need someone to take his place and Brunner will be one of the options.
 
9/24/2013 7:22:00 PM
Description: The Devils have signed Damien Brunner to a two-year, $5 million contract, according to Rich Chere of NJ.com.
Insight: The Devils brought in Brunner on a tryout contract and he impressed during training camp. As a rookie with the Detroit Red Wings last season, the former Swiss league star scored 12 goals and had 26 points in 44 games. He could play a top-six role with New Jersey and is worth a late-round draft pick.
 
4/9/2013 5:25:00 PM
Description: Detroit center Damien Brunner (hip flexor) is expected to return to the lineup Thursday against the Sharks, according to MLive.com.
Insight: Brunner had 10 goals, 16 points and 66 SOG over his first 19 games but he has just two goals, six points and 34 SOG in 16 games since then.
 
4/5/2013 11:07:00 AM
Description: Detroit center Damien Brunner is out indefinitely with a sore hip flexor. The problem forced him out of Thursday's game after about 10 minutes and has been bothering him for a couple of weeks, according to a Detroit News report.
Insight: Brunner has 11 goals and 11 assists in 35 games this season, but a -7 rating is limiting his fantasy value.
 
2/24/2013 8:23:00 PM
Description: Detroit center Damien Brunner racked up four points (two goals, two assists) Sunday in a blowout win against the Canucks.
Insight: Brunner leads all rookies in goals with 10 scores in his first 19 games. He's taken at least four shots in each of his last five appearances.
 
2/17/2013 9:14:00 PM
