The New Jersey Devils will be without centre Nico Hischier for Thursday’s game against the New York Rangers. Captain Andy Greene, who hasn’t played since Oct. 9, will also miss the game.

The 20-year-old has two assists in six games this season.

Greene has been out of the lineup with an upper-body injury. The 36-year-old has no points in three games.
