Parise: Zajac's Injury Will Affect NJ

Standard Spin: Travis Zajac will miss the first month of the season after Achilles surgery in August and Zach Parise says that he and other NJ stars will feel the effect because the team will not be able to roll its top 2 lines per usual in Zajac's absence. This is definitely something to consider; however Parise, Kovalchuk and Elias should continue to rack up points as the teams #1 powerplay unit. (Sep.10)
