New Jersey Devils forward Mike Cammalleri may miss the remainder of the season with a wrist injury. Cammalleri suffered the injury back on January 26th against the Penguins. Cammalleri missed his 13th consecutive game Friday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning in a 4-0 loss.
Contrary, to what northjersey.com said a week ago about Cammalleri could comeback soon. The Devils head coach John Hynes reportedly said on Friday that there has been a setback in the 33- year old Cammalleri’s recovery.
“He’s not close right now, I would say it’s beyond day to day now.” says Hynes. via TSN
“I think Mike’s going through a hard time with it. He wants to get back and he’s trying everything he can to do it. We’d like him to be back, but that’s not the case and it doesn’t seem like it’s going to be the case in the near future.” added Hynes on losing Cammalleri for what could be the rest of the season. via NJ.com
