Devils Erik Haula Likely to Return vs. Bruins



New Jersey Devils

New Jersey Devils Erik Haula missed Sunday’s contest with an upper-body injury. However, it looks like he’ll be good to go tonight against the Boston Bruins.

Following Tuesday’s morning skate, Haula disclosed he’s been dealing with something on and off, however, didn’t get into specifics.

“It’s been an interesting year in a lot of ways,” Haula said yesterday post-practice. “I never want to miss time. I try to do everything I can to get back out as soon as I can when I miss games. Hopefully, things start going away a little bit.”

Head coach Lindy Ruff followed up by saying Haula will be re-evaluated on Wednesday ahead of puck drop. This morning, Haula was a full participant again at morning skate.

The evaluation went well.

“It looks like (Erik Haula is good to go),” Ruff explained. “It’s good to have him back.”

Haula likely returns to the lineup against his former club in Newark tonight. The Traveling Haulas will be elated.
