Devils claim Urbom off waivers from Capitals

Wednesday, 01.08.2014 / 1:49 PM / News


The New Jersey Devils on Wednesday claimed defenseman Alexander Urbom off waivers from the Washington Capitals.

The Capitals had claimed Urbom off waivers from the Devils before the start of the 2013-14 season, and he had one goal and one assist in 20 games with Washington. He hadn't played an NHL game since Nov. 29.

Urbom, a third-round pick (No. 73) of the Devils in the 2009 NHL Draft, had two goals in 14 games over parts of three seasons with New Jersey.

Because the Devils were the only team to put in a claim in Urbom, he can be assigned to the American Hockey League without having to clear waivers again, and general manager Lou Lamoriello said he will be sent to Albany.

The Devils also placed center Jacob Josefson (illness) on injured reserve retroactive to Jan. 4.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
