Devils place Larsson on injured reserve
The New Jersey Devils placed defenseman Adam Larsson (lower body) on injured reserve Sunday, retroactive to Nov. 23, and recalled forward Tim Sestito from Albany of the American Hockey League.

The New Jersey Devils placed defenseman Adam Larsson (lower body) on injured reserve Sunday, retroactive to Nov. 23, and recalled forward Tim Sestito from Albany of the American Hockey League.

Larsson was hurt during the third period of the Devils' Nov. 23 loss to the San Jose Sharks when he crashed into the boards. He has one goal, two assists and a minus-4 rating in 20 games.

Sestito has 13 points (five goals, eight assists) and 28 penalty minutes in 21 games with Albany. He is a possible replacement for Ryan Carter (facial lacerations), who will not make the trip Monday when the Devils play the Montreal Canadiens.

Carter, who is day-to-day, left the game Saturday against the Buffalo Sabres after a fight with Marcus Foligno 2:05 into the first period.

“He got cut and when he went down, he went down a little awkwardly too, so there’s a couple of things going on there,” Devils coach Peter DeBoer told The Record (N.J.) on Sunday.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
