The New Jersey Devils will get Nico Hischier back against the New York Rangers on Tuesday night, the team announced.

Hischier missed the last 24 games with a concussion and broken nose after being struck in the visor by a puck Feb. 27. He underwent surgery in early March to repair a frontal sinus fracture.

The 22-year-old captain also missed time earlier this season due to a leg injury he suffered during the offseason. Hischier has two goals and one assist in five games this campaign.
