New Jersey Devils Loan Adam Larsson to Albany; Recall Tim Sestito

The New Jersey Devils announced late this afternoon that they have loaned defenseman Adam Larsson to Albany for a conditioning assignment. The Devils also stated that Larsson, 22, will play in Albany's game on Friday night against Wilkes-Barre. Scranton. Larsson is working his way back from the mumps, and he has not played since Dec. 2 in Pittsburgh.

Since Larsson is on a conditioning assignment, he counts against the active roster and can remain in the AHL for two weeks. The defenseman would have to clear waivers if he were to be officially placed in the AHL.

New Jersey made room on their roster for Larsson by placing rookie defenseman Damon Severson on injured reserve with a hair-line fracture in his ankle. Severson is expected to miss four to five weeks.

The red and black also recalled forward Tim Sestito from Albany today. He played one game for the Devils this season. Sestito was just sent back down to Albany on Tuesday.

The New Jersey Devils lost to the Ottawa Senators at the Prudential Center by the final score of 2-0. With the loss, the Devils fall to 11-16-6 on the season and remain in sixth place in the Metropolitan Division.

Winger Patrik Elias returned to the lineup tonight after he missed five straight contests with a nagging groin injury. Devils rookie defenseman Damon Severson was a late scratch with a lower-body injury. This is the first game he missed all season.

Devils' lines:

Scott Gomez- Adam Henrique- Jaromir Jagr

Elias- Travis Zajac- Martin Havlat

Tuomo Ruutu- Stephen Gionta- Michael Ryder

Steve Bernier- Jacob Josefon- Jordin Tootoo

Devils' defense:

Andy Greene- Jon Merrill

Seth Helgeson- Marek Zidlicky

Eric Gelinas- Peter Harrold

New Jersey was a bit sluggish in the first period. With 17:36 remaining in the first, Merrill suffered a delay of game penalty. The Senators capitalized on the power play when Kyle Turris stood in front of the net and deflected the puck right past Devils net-minder Cory Schneider to give them a 1-0 lead.

New Jersey Devils Send Tim Sestito Back to Albany

Today, the New Jersey Devils sent winger Tim Sestito back to their AHL affiliate in Albany. He was called up on Monday and played against the New York Islanders in the Devils' 3-2 shootout loss last night. During that game, Sestito played 16 shifts and totaled 11:04 in ice time.

With Sestito being sent back down, this could be an indication that one of the many injured forwards on New Jersey could be returning to the lineup for tomorrow night's game against the Ottawa Senators.

Winger Patrik Elias has missed the last five games and six of the last seven overall due to his nagging groin injury. However, the winger has been skating on his own the past couple of days.

Forward Dainius Zubrus has missed the last four matches due to a leg laceration that is located on the back and inside of his left knee. There is still no update on the status of winger Mike Cammalleri, who left Saturday night's loss against the Dallas Stars with a lower body injury. He appeared to be favoring his leg as he limped awkwardly off the ice at the end of the second period.

New Jersey Devils Injury Woes Continue

The New Jersey Devils sent winger Mike Cammalleri (lower body injury) back home to New Jersey today. The winger suffered the injury in Saturday night's loss to the Dallas Stars at the end of the second period. General manager Lou Lamoriello states that the injury to Cammalleri is not the same one that sidelined him for two games last week.

New Jersey recalled Tim Sestito from Albany to take Cammalleri's place in the lineup tonight against the New York Islanders in what should be the Devils' final game at Nassau Coliseum unless both teams make the playoffs.

Sestito played in 26 games with Albany this season. He totaled 13 points off of six goals and seven assists. Sestito will be wearing the number 12. This is not his first experience in the NHL; he has played 86 games and tallied zero goals, six assists, and 22 penalty minutes.

The Devils held their morning skate at 11:30 today. They were using different line combinations, with Travis Zajac back in the lineup. Mike Sislo appeared to a healthy scratch.

Scott Gomez- Zajac- Jaromir Jagr

Tuomo Ruutu- Adam Henrique- Michael Ryder
