New Jersey Devils Call Up Goaltender

The New Jersey Devils have called up Mackenzie Blackwood from his conditioning stint with the Utica Comets. 

Blackwood has not played for the Devils since early November due to a knee injury. Yet, after his brief two-game stint with the Comets, they are confident that Blackwood is ready to return to NHL action. 

Blackwood's start to the 2022-23 season has been rough, but now he will be aiming to bounce back. In seven games with New Jersey thus far, he has a 4-2-0 record but also an underwhelming .880 SV%. Let's see if he can get his numbers up from here.
