Offensive issues plagued the Devils through the season's first month.

November might not get off to the best of start if Zach Parise is out for an extended period of time.

With Parise back in New Jersey, the Devils travel to Vancouver to continue a six-game road trip versus the Canucks at Rogers Arena.

Parise skated in the first two periods on Saturday against the Los Angeles Kings before being held out the rest of the way with a lower-body injury. He returned to New Jersey for further tests and it is unknown how long the forward will be out.

The Devils wrap their road trip in Chicago on Wednesday before returning home for three games.

The 26-year-old notched 38 goals and 82 points a season ago and has three goals and six points in 12 games this year.
