  • Devils' Michael McLeod: Two-point effort Tuesday

  • Devils' Michael McLeod: Offers helper in loss

    McLeod recorded an assist in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Avalanche.

    McLeod has two goals and an assist over four games in November. At least on offense, he's holding his own in a top-six role while filling in for Nico Hischier (upper body) and Jack Hughes (shoulder). McLeod began the year in a bottom-six spot, but the 25-year-old may be earning himself more responsibility with solid play. He's at five points, 20 shots on net, 17 hits and a plus-1 rating through 12 outings.

  • Devils' Michael McLeod: Provides goal Thursday

    McLeod found the back of the net in a 5-3 win over Minnesota on Thursday.

    McLeod is up to two goals and three points in nine outings this year. With those two markers, he's already halfway to his 2022-23 goal total, though he's still a ways away from the 26 points in 80 contests he recorded during that campaign. The 25-year-old is on New Jersey's second line while Nico Hischier's (upper body) unavailable, so McLeod does have some short-term fantasy value.

  • Devils' Michael McLeod: Notches assist Friday

    McLeod posted an assist and two shots on goal in Friday's 5-4 win over the Sabres.

    McLeod snapped a three-game point drought with a secondary helper on Alexander Holtz's goal in the first period. Playing in a fourth-line role, McLeod's chances on offense are likely to remain limited. The 25-year-old center has two points, nine shots on net, 14 hits and a minus-1 rating through seven appearances this season.

  • Devils' Michael McLeod: Lights lamp for first time

    McLeod scored his first goal of the season in Monday's 4-3 loss against the Panthers.

    McLeod was blanked in his first two games with just one shot on goal, but the Mississauga, Ont. native played well Monday, particularly in the third period. He managed just four goals and 26 points across 80 games last season, so don't expect many more lamp-lighters in 2023-24.

  • Devils' Michael McLeod: Staying with club

    McLeod put pen to paper on a one-year, $1.4 million deal with New Jersey on Saturday.

    McLeod set new personal bests in games played (80), assists (22) and points (26) last season. Selected with the 12th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, the 25-year-old center figures to remain a bottom-six option for New Jersey for the upcoming campaign. Thus, McLeod is unlikely to offer more than mid-range fantasy value.

  • Michael McLeod: Poised to become free agent

    McLeod wasn't presented with a qualifying offer by the Devils, so he will become an unrestricted free agent Saturday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

    McLeod had four goals, 26 points, 43 PIM, 127 hits and 51 blocks in 80 contests with New Jersey last season. Retaining his exclusive negotiating rights would have required a one-year, $1 million qualifying offer from the Devils given that he completed his two-year, $1.95 million deal last year.

  • Devils' Michael McLeod: Adds assist in season-ending loss

    McLeod assisted on a Dawson Mercer goal in the first period en route to a 3-2 season-ending overtime loss to the Hurricanes on Thursday.

    McLeod wasn't the biggest producer for New Jersey this postseason. However, depending on how your league scores, he may have managed to be a depth contributor. In Thursday's game, he finished with an assist, a plus-1 rating, three hits, two blocked shots and a shot. Through 12 playoff games, he put up a pair of goals, four assists, a plus-2 rating, 15 PIM, 19 shots, a game-winning goal, one power-play point and two short-handed points. He's no Leon Draisaitl, but McLeod provided depth value.
