NJ Devils Place Volchenkov On IR

Volchenkov_Devils_2013The New Jersey Devils have had no luck with injuries this season, and that trend continued on Tuesday as the club placed veteran defenseman Anton Volchenkov on IR with a pulled leg muscle.

Volchenkov, 31, hasn?t skated since playing just 5:05 in a 3-2 win over the Rangers last Tuesday.

He?s missed the Devils? last two games ? a 2-0 loss to L.A. and a 4-1 win over Pittsburgh ? and, while he was put on injured reserve retroactive to Nov. 12 (eligible to come off today), he won?t travel with the Devils on their upcoming three-game trek through California for games against the Ducks, Kings and Sharks.
