Video: NJ Devils Jonas Siegenthaler Breaks Foot, Out Long Term

The New Jersey Devils continue to fight off the injury bug as another one of their blueliners has gone down with a significant injury. Jonas Siegenthaler is the latest as the mobile defenseman suffered a broken foot against the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night and is expected to miss roughly two months. 

The Devils are already without star d-man Dougie Hamilton who tore a pec muscle and now GM Tom Fitzgerald will surely be looking at the trade market to try and solidify his back end with some healthy bodies.

Siegenthaler, 26, was injured when he blocked a shot in the second period against the Canucks and while he managed to tough it out and finish his shift, he was helped to the bench by a trainer and Devils' teammate Erik Haula.

New Jersey took on Vancouver without Jack Hughes who suffered an upper-body injury earlier in the week and now there's also been Timo Meier who got placed on the injured reserve on Saturday as well.

Needless to say, Fitzgerald has no choice but to try and make a move and bring in some fresh talent to keep things afloat for the Devils ahead of the March 8 trade deadline.
