Miles Wood was on the ice today at Barnabas Health Hockey House at Prudential Center with the group that will face the Islanders on Monday night at Barclays Center. There were no lingering effects from the hit he took from the Rangers’ Andrew Desjardins at 8:06 of the first period in the Devils’ 2-1 preseason win on Saturday night at The Rock. And for that, Wood, 22, was grateful. Desjardins, with the Rangers on a Professional Tryout Offer, will have a hearing with the NHL Player Safety Department on Monday after receiving a five-minute match penalty for an illegal hit to the head and being ejected from the game.
