Zajac "healed," will resume skating soon

Devils center Travis Zajac has "healed" from a lingering Achilles tendon injury and will begin skating agin in about a week, according to GM Lou Lamoriello.

According to the Bergen Record and Newark Star-Ledger, Lamoriello said Zajac is not expected to return for at least another month while he regains strength in his leg.

Zajac made his season debut December 16 after missing four months with a torn Achilles sustained in an off-season workout in August. The 26-year-old, who has one goal and two assists, played only eight games before he was shut down again due to nagging soreness in his surgically-repaired heel.
