Jets head coach Rick Bowness said Tuesday that Kyle Connor’s re-evaluation Monday revealed nothing new and that his recovery from his right MCL injury remains status quo (6-8 week timeline).

Connor, 27, suffered a right-knee injury on December 10, and was placed on injured reserve by the team just three days later.

In 26 games played this season, the American winger has scored 17 goals while adding 11 assists.

New Jersey Devils

Devils forward Timo Meier suffered a "kind of medium-body" injury, head coach Lindy Ruff said Tuesday. 

Ruff confirmed that Meier is still undergoing evaluation "hopefully it shouldn't be too long."

The Swiss-born 27 year-old is in his first full season with the Devils after being acquired by the club at last year's trade deadline. 

Meier was originally drafted by the San Jose Sharks with the ninth overall in 2015.
