The Devils signed Miles Wood to a four-year contract extension worth $11 million ($2.75M AAV) on Saturday.
Wood just wrapped up his first full NHL season with 19 goals and 13 assists (32 points) in 76 games. The 2013 fourth-round pick will be hard pressed to land a top-6 role in New Jersey but is a serviceable bottom-6 winger who brings some toughness to the Devils’ lineup.
Wood is day-to-day with an upper-body injury; won’t play Tuesday in San Jose.
Wood was hurt in Anaheim on Sunday and will not play against the Sharks. With Wood listed as day-to-day, Jesper Bratt will draw back into the Devils lineup.
Wood has been suspended two games for his hit on Vladislav Namestnikov, he will not play Sunday in Carolina.
Wood (upper-body) will return to the Devils' lineup on Thursday.
Wood (lower-body) will play Tuesday in Columbus.
Wood missed Sunday’s game vs. the Blue Jackets, but will play tonight. Wood has seen an increased role recently and comes into Tuesday with eight goals and seven assists (15 points) in 45 games.
Wood (lower-body) will not play Sunday vs. the Blue Jackets.

The Devils have sent Miles Wood to Albany (AHL).
Wood, 21, had no points in two games with the Devils to start the season and with Sergey Kalinin returning to the lineup on Saturday, Wood has been sent to Albany. He had 35 points (10G / 25A) in 37 games with Boston College last year and should have no trouble picking up points in the AHL.
