New Jersey Devils winger Martin Havlat suffered severe facial lacerations Thursday night and is considered day-to-day, according to

The 33-year-old former first round draft pick collided with a referee after being pushed toward the end boards late in the second period of Thursday's 6-2 defeat in Washington.  Havlat may have sustained a broken nose, but the worst of the damage was to the area just above his mouth.  It is believed that his visor may have sliced completely through the skin, leading to severe bleeding and requiring extensive stitching.

In this, his first season with the Devils, Havlat has notched one goal and two assists through four games. He will be a game-time decision tonight for New Jersey's home opener against the 3-0-1 San Jose Sharks.
