New Jersey Devils forward and captain Nico Hischier did not participate in training for his team today. The Swiss was content to skate alone before his partners.
In the last game against the Carolina Hurricanes, in the third period, Hischier blocked a shot before struggling to regain the bench. He hardly played again and seemed bothered by the pain. Devils head coach Lindy Ruff confirmed to him that his captain would face Detroit tomorrow.
