Devils assign Janssen to AHL; Elias placed on IR

The New Jersey Devils set their 23-man roster on Monday by assigning Cam Janssen to the Albany Devils of the American Hockey League after the right wing cleared waivers. In addition, left wing Patrik Elias was placed on injured reserve retroactive to last Wednesday and right wing Mattias Tedenby was designated an injured non-roster player.

Elias is eligible to come off IR on Wednesday and the move was made as a precaution to get the team at the 23-man limit by 5 p.m. Monday. General manager Lou Lamoriello is hopeful Elias will be ready for the Devils' home opener Friday night in Newark against the New York Islanders.
