Sami Vatanen got almost 30 minutes of ice time in Saturday's loss to Philadelphia.
The 27-year-old played a career-high 29:01 in the loss because Steven Santini was injured early on. He also finished the game with a minus-1 rating and no shots on goal. "I felt like I couldn’t get tired in that last game," Vatanen said. "I don’t know why but maybe it was something I ate. I have no idea what it was but I felt good." It's clear that the Devils will rely on Vatanen to play some big minutes as the season goes on. His fantasy upside remains pretty limited. Oct 23 - 9:44 AM
