Struggling Devils activate Carter after concussion, reunite him with Bernier, Gionta

NEWARK, N.J. - The New Jersey Devils have activated left wing Ryan Carter from injured reserve.

Carter, returning from a concussion, should be in the lineup Saturday, when the struggling Devils take on the Sabres in Buffalo. He will rejoin mates Steve Bernier and Stephen Gionta, reuniting a line that was pivotal in New Jersey's run to the Stanley Cup final last season.

Carter was hit by a pair of Ottawa SenatorsDave Dziurzynski and Chris Neil — on Feb. 18. He has two goals and five points this season.

To create a spot on the roster for Carter, New Jersey shipped centre Tim Sestito to Albany of the AHL.

New Jersey, also missing starting goaltender Martin Brodeur (back), has lost three straight.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
