Devils’ Dougie Hamilton out indefinitely with broken jaw

Dougie Hamilton will have surgical treatment Wednesday on his damaged jaw and will run out the Devils’ lineup forever. Joining him will be captain Nico Hischier, who is dealing with a lower-body injury.

As if the news couldn’t worsen for the Devils, forward Yegor Sharangovich and Pavel Zacha have actually gotten in COVID-19 procedure while hip surgical treatment has actually ended goaltender Jonathan Bernier‘s season.

It had been a productive run of late for three of the four skaters out. Hamilton had four points in his last four games; Sharangovich had goals in three straight games; while Hischier had three goals and seven points in his last five games, which includes Sunday’s overtime winner versus Washington.
