According to the team's Twitter page, the 38-year-old forward will play right wing on the Devils top line alongside Patrik Elias and another in-season acquisition, Andrei Loktionov.

Sullivan and Elias were linemates for the Devils' minor-league team in Albany 17 years ago.

"I'm excited," Sullivan said Saturday, according to The Record of Hackensack. "Obviously to play with a player with his skill is going to be good. I'm very excited about the opportunity to play with him again."

Report: Lupul out for Maple Leafs on Saturday

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul will not play against the New Jersey Devils on Saturday, the Toronto Globe and Mail reported.

Lupul sustained an upper-body injury when hit during a game against the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday.

Coach Randy Carlyle would not call the injury a concussion Friday.

“No that’s a bad word,” Carlyle told the newspaper. “We don’t use that word until we’re 100 percent sure on any of those situations medically. The term concussion, in today’s sporting world, you want to make sure you’re 100 percent sure before you start using that one.”
