Bad news from Devils camp, as the team will now be missing forward Travis Zajac for upwards of three months after injuring his Achilles tendon doing some plyometric exercises for his off-season training. Zajac underwent surgery to repair the tendons and the organization is saying that his rehabilitation will take about three months, which would put him back in the line-up in the middle of November.
In 2011, Zajac played in all 82 games, scoring 13 goals and 31 assists in a down year for the 26-year old forward. Zajac has finished in the top 75 of pool scoring twice, which makes him a pretty substantial loss in the scoring department, something the Devils desperately were needing last season.
