The Devils placed center Bobby Holik (fractured right pinky) and right wing Brian Rolston (high right ankle sprain) on injured reserve today retroactive to the dates of their respective injuries. Rolston was injured on Oct. 16 in Atlanta and Holik was injured on Oct. 18 in Washington.
Jamie Langenbrunner is still not practising with the team and will likely miss Wednesday's contest against Toronto. He suffered a deep bruise in Friday's game against the Flyers.
Pierre-Luc Létourneau-Leblond is out with a cracked orbital bone. He is day-to-day.
Finally, right wing Barry Tallackson has been placed on LTIR and assigned to Lowell (AHL) on a conditioning assignment. Tallackson is recovering from Sept. 26 surgery to correct an irregular heartbeat.
The Devils also recalled rookie forwards Matt Halischuk and Nicklas Bergfors this morning on an emergency basis to replace the injured players. Both are expected to practice today and will likely play tomorrow.
