from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,
Zubrus was leaning forward trying to reach for the puck when Myers hit him with his upper right arm/elbow. Zubrus didn’t think that Myers attempted to play the puck at all. No penalty was called.
“I know I was reaching for the puck,” he said. “I know I never had possession of it and instead of playing the puck, I think he just went after me. I asked the refs and they said they didn’t want to guess and make the wrong call. You guys saw it better than I did probably.”
Per Brian Compton of the NHL
“Devils GM Lou Lamoriello confirmed Thursday that Travis Zajac, who finished third on the club last season with 44 points (13 goals, 31 assists), will miss the first month and a half of the season after undergoing surgery to repair his left Achilles tendon. Zajac suffered the injury Wednesday during an off-ice training workout.”
