In a recent update from the New Jersey Devils' camp, there's both unfortunate news and an opportunity knocking at the door.

Head coach Travis Green revealed that forward Curtis Lazar is likely sidelined for the remainder of the season due to an upper-body injury sustained in the team's recent win over the Senators.
However, amidst the setback, there's a silver lining as Shane Bowers got the call-up from Utica to fill the Devils void for their game against the Nashville Predators.
Metropolitan Notes: Lazar, Marino, Kuraly

Lazar's campaign comes to a close with a mix of highs and hurdles, tallying seven goals, 18 assists, and 25 points in 71 games. Despite the setback, his season saw personal bests in assists and points, reflecting the resilience of his journeyman career since being drafted in 2013. The 29-year-old's adeptness in a shutdown role, coupled with a solid 51.1 xG% in controlling possession quality, underscores his valuable presence on the ice.
Transitioning from Lazar's absence to Bowers' opportunity emphasizes the unpredictable nature of hockey, where injuries pave the way for unforeseen chances.
