The Devils have placed Nico Hischier (illness) on IR.

Hischier has been dealing with an illness since the start of last week and still isn't ready to play Tuesday in Dallas. The Devils moved him to IR to open up a roster spot to call-up Michael McLeod to join them on the trip. Hischier is eligible to return to the lineup whenever he is 100 percent.

Hischier (upper-body) is likely to return to the Devils lineup on Friday.

Hischier has missed the last two games with an upper-body ailment but was a full participant in Thursday's practice and should play Friday. Hischier was on the first line when he got hurt but it looks like he will return on the third line with Nikita Gusev and Pavel Zacha on his wings.
