As Amanda Stein (Devils reporter) wtites on Twitter, Nico Hischier suffers from a harmstring strain and will miss at least 10 days. After that the injury will be re-evaluated.

Hischier will thus miss a couple of pre-season games with the Devils. If the 23-year-old forward will be ready for the season opener on October 13th remains to be seen.
