Injured Devils Top Prospect Frozen Four Status Revealed, How to Watch

New Jersey Devils top prospect, Seamus Casey, suffered an undisclosed injury that forced him to miss a chunk of the play-in round to the 2024 NCAA Frozen Four.

Casey left the first of two games of the play-in during a tilt with North Dakota. However, the Michigan Wolverines prevailed without their No.1 defenseman, partially due to fellow Devils prospect Ethan Edwards stepping up in Casey’s absence.

That was a week and a half ago.

Since then, Michigan has been prepping for the Frozen Four tournament, giving Casey 11 days to recover from his undisclosed injury.

The Wolverines, and Devils by extension, received the good news that Casey will play when the tournament begins on Thursday. Casey’s presence in Michigan’s Frozen Four lineup was confirmed by head coach Brandon Naurato, then again by Casey himself, via News-Press.

Casey opened up about missing the rivalry game when the Wolverines defeated Michigan State.

“Michigan State kind of had our number for most of the year, and I think we were looking at it like we were kind of due for one here,” said Casey, who added he will play against Boston College. “And there had been a lot of adversity all year, you know we didn’t have the best record… I think we were looked at as underdogs kind of all the way through so it was just awesome to get that win and make it back to the Frozen Four.”

Following the Frozen Four tournament, Casey’s future could almost certainly be with the Devils or Utica Comets.

Seamus Casey had an excellent season, collecting seven goals and 45 points in 39 games, receiving first-team All-Big Ten Honors. He also collected a goal medal at this winter’s World Junior Championships.

Michigan, the default No.4 seed after eliminating Michigan State, faces off against the No.1 seed Boston College and Cutter Gauthier on Thursday night at 8:30 P.M.

Frozen Four games will be streamed on and on the ESPN App.
