Salvador out, Larsson in for Devils

New Jersey Devils captain Bryce Salvador, one of five players to appear in each of the team's 82 games last season, did not make the trip to Raleigh, N.C., and will miss the Devils' game Saturday against the Carolina Hurricanes with an upper-body injury. Salvador, 37 was named captain in January and has one assist in 24 games this season.

He isn't the only Devils defenseman not to make the trip south. Henrik Tallinder has not played since Tuesday against Tampa Bay and remains out with a lower-body injury. The team's official Twitter feed confirmed Salvador's absence and noted that 20-year-old Adam Larsson would take his place in the lineup.

Here is the Devils projected lineup for the game against the Hurricanes, based on reports from the morning skate:

Alexei Ponikarovsky - Andrei Loktionov - Ilya Kovalchuk

Patrik Elias - Adam Henrique - David Clarkson

Stefan Matteau - Travis Zajac - Steve Bernier

Ryan Carter - Stephen Gionta - Tom Kostopoulos

Andy Greene - Mark Fayne

Anton Volchenkov - Adam Larsson

Marek Zidlicky - Peter Harrold

Johan Hedberg

Jeff Frazee

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
