News: Palmieri returned to practice Monday, Tom Gulitti of the The Record reports.
Impact: Palmieri wasn't able to suit up for Friday's preseason finale against the Flyers, but the ailment that held him out was never considered to be particularly serious. The 24-year-old winger is expected to slot into a top-six role with the Devils this season.

News: Palmieri (undisclosed) was not able to play in Friday's preseason finale against the Flyers.
Impact: Devils head coach John Hynes referred to the injury as a "little minor tweak." Barring a setback, this doesn't sound like something that should threaten Palmieri's availability for Opening Night on Oct. 9, when the Devils host the Jets. Palmieri compiled 14 goals and 15 assists in 57 games last season with the Ducks.

News: Palmieri has a "minor tweak" according to head coach John Hynes, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Impact: Palmieri was absent from Wednesday's exhibition contest, and now Devils fans have an explanation. Although the wording was vague, Hynes doesn't expect the ailment to be overly serious, so it shouldn't cost him time during the regular season.
