Devils forward Taylor Hall is set to return to the lineup for Monday's game against the Anaheim Ducks after missing the previous two games with a right knee contusion.
Hall, who last season suffered a torn meniscus, returned to practice Sunday, along with Marcus Johansson and Kyle Palmieri, after suffering the injury in Tuesday's 5-1 win against the Los Angeles Kings.
He said he felt he could have played in Friday's game against the Dallas Stars, but instead opted to take additional rest.
"My immediate reaction was hope you didn't tear anything or blow my knee out," Hall said, according to NJ.com's Chris Ryan. "So just to miss a couple games and have the guys play so well, it's a pretty good feeling to try and come back and play when the guys are playing so well."
