News: Ryder picked up an assist in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Penguins.
Impact: A healthy scratch for much of the last couple of months, Ryder has since reentered the Devils' lineup the last two games while Patrik Elias deals with back spasms. Even so, Ryder's role with the team is far from secure, as he's seen less than 13 minutes in both games while occupying a bottom-six spot. Once Elias is cleared to play, it's likely Ryder will head back to the press box.
