Devils' Larsson Activated, Returns From Assignment

News: The Devils recalled Adam Larsson (illness) from his conditioning assignment at AHL Albany and formally activated him from injured reserve Saturday.
Analysis: Adam Larsson has been over the mumps for a few days now, but because he hadn't played since the first week of December, the Devils wanted him to get in a game in the minors before rejoining the big club. After coming out of Friday's game with Albany no worse for the wear, he'll be an option for the Devils on Saturday as a member of the second or third pairing.

Devils' Larsson Sent To Minors For Conditioning

News: Adam Larsson (mumps) was assigned to AHL Albany on Thursday for a conditioning assignment, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Adam Larsson is no longer feeling the effects of the mumps, but the Devils want him to get a game under his belt in the minors on Friday before they feel comfortable activating him. Look for him to return to New Jersey once the weekend comes to a close.

Devils' Larsson Now Day-To-Day

News: Adam Larsson (mumps) is being labeled as day-to-day and his status for Friday's game against the Lightning will be a "coach's decision," Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: After battling the mumps for the previous week, Adam Larsson was cleared to rejoin the team Wednesday. He's skated each of the last two days and appears to have regained stamina after the virus resulted in him losing considerable weight. With the Devils announcing Thursday that Damon Severson (ankle) would miss the next four-to-five weeks, there's a ready-made lineup spot waiting for Larsson should coach Pete DeBoer decide to play him.

Larsson (Mumps) Joins Devils For Skate

News: Adam Larsson (mumps) rejoined the Devils for their morning skate Wednesday, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: While he won't be a lineup option Wednesday against the Senators, Adam Larsson's reunion with his teammates suggests he's past the contagious period with the mumps. Larsson noted that he first fell ill the night of Dec. 3, meaning that he spent two weeks recovering from the virus. He could need a few days to get his conditioning up to speed, so it's no given that he'll be able to return to the lineup for either of the Devils' two weekend games.

Mumps Confirmed For Devils' Larsson

News: Adam Larsson (illness) has been diagnosed with the mumps virus, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: General manager Lou Lamoriello also confirmed that Travis Zajac recently got over the mumps, adding two more players to the growing list of NHLers that have become victims to the virus. Adam Larsson, who was initially diagnosed with the flu, remains in isolation while he continues to recover. The virus has typically run its course in five-to-seven days for those affected, making it unlikely that Larsson will be cleared to return by the weekend.

Devils' Larsson Out For Monday

News: Adam Larsson (illness) did not travel with the team on their road trip to Carolina and has been placed on injured reserve.
Analysis: The blueliner is still trying to get over a recent case of the flu. He'll pick up some further rest Monday, and because his IR placement is retroactive to Dec. 2, Adam Larsson won't be an option when the Devils return home Tuesday to face the Blackhawks.

Devils' Larsson (Flu) Misses Morning Skate

News: Adam Larsson (flu) is not taking part in Saturday's morning skate.
Analysis: Although Adam Larsson was said to be feeling better Friday, his status for Saturday's game against Washington is looking murky in light of this development. The team figures to make a final decision on his availability shortly after morning skate.

Devils' Larsson Feeling Better

News: Adam Larsson (illness) was reportedly feeling better Friday, according to Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Adam Larsson sat out Thursday's game with a case of the flu. While it's encouraging that his condition is improving, Larsson's status for Saturday's game against the Capitals won't be known until after the team conducts its morning skate.

Larsson Under Pressure At Devils' Camp

News: Adam Larsson will need to earn the trust of the New Jersey coaching staff in order to secure a spot in the team's lineup.
Analysis: Adam Larsson has to have a strong camp in order to secure one of the open spots on the team's roster. With him on a one-way, one-year contract now, he'll have to pass through waivers if he is sent down, so he has a roster spot in theory. The fourth-overall pick of the 2011 draft has seen sparse ice time the last few seasons and will need to have a strong training camp along with fellow youngster Eric Gelinas in order to earn the trust of the team's coaching staff.

Devils Re-Sign Larsson

News: Adam Larsson re-signed with the Devils on Monday, inking a one-year, one-way contract worth $900,000, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: The former No. 4 overall pick has struggled to fulfill expectations in his three seasons in New Jersey, and was reportedly considering a return to Sweden before the Devils decided to take a gamble on him for one more year. He was mostly relegated to duty at the AHL level last season, but the one-way contract -- in addition to the expected losses of Anton Volchenkov and Mark Fayne in free agency -- should open the door for more playing time with the big club.

Larsson Recalled By New Jersey

News: Adam Larsson has been recalled from AHL Albany, Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Adam Larsson -- who was recalled on an emergency basis -- gives the Devils some added blue-line depth, with fellow D-man Jon Merrill currently banged up.

Devils Activate, Reassign Larsson

News: Adam Larsson (lower body) was activated from IR and reassigned to AHL Albany, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: With the Devils' defensive corps back close to full strength during the time Adam Larsson was on injured reserve, it appears as though there's no longer a need for him on the parent club. He could reemerge as a lineup option for the Devils later this season after he gets back up to full speed in Albany.

Devils' Larsson Nearing Return

News: Adam Larsson (lower body) could return to the lineup soon, Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Adam Larsson is still on IR with the injury, but the coaching staff has admitted that his name is in the mix when they discuss lineup options. It sounds like he could suit up Thursday against the Stars, so keep an eye out for him to be activated ahead of time.

Devils' Larsson Still Out Tuesday

Devils' Larsson Says He's Ready, Waiting

News: Adam Larsson (knee) said he is "ready to play" and is waiting to be reinserted into the lineup, according to the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti.
Analysis: Adam Larsson has not played since November 23 and will continue waiting to be placed into the team's lineup considering the return of several other veteran defenders.

Devils' Larsson Likely Out For Weekend

News: Adam Larsson (knee) has been practicing with the Devils, but likely will not play in either of the team's two games this coming weekend, as Devils coach Peter DeBoer told the The Record's Tom Gulitti.
Analysis: Adam Larsson has missed more than a month with a knee injury and is nearing a return. The Devils will want him to get more of his conditioning back before reinserting him into the lineup. Even once Larsson is ready to play, there's no guarantee he'll step back into regular ice time, as the Devils now find themselves with a logjam on the blue line.

Devils' Larsson Starting To Skate Again

News: Adam Larsson (lower body) has been able to skate the last couple of days, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Adam Larsson's injury is supposed to keep him out for four-to-six weeks, so it's probably safe to say that any skating he's doing now isn't especially intense. Until he starts taking part in full-contact practices, he shouldn't be viewed as close to returning.

Devils' Larsson Expected To Miss 4-6 Weeks

News: Adam Larsson (lower body) is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Adam Larsson was placed on injured reserve Dec. 1, and though he has since resumed skating, he's not considered close to practicing yet. Look for Larsson to return sometime shortly after the calendar turns to 2014.

Devils' Larsson Lands On IR

News: Adam Larsson (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Sunday, Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: His stint has been backdated to Nov. 23, but it appears as though Adam Larsson will miss one more game at the very least. Tim Sestito was recalled to provide some depth at center for Monday's game against Montreal.

Devils' Larsson Not Traveling With Club

News: Adam Larsson (lower body) will not travel with the Devils to Carolina for Friday's game, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: The Devils will be back at home Saturday for a tilt with the Sabres, but it would seem unlikely that Adam Larsson would be healthy enough to play by then. Fortunately, Anton Volchenkov will be able to return from injured reserve Friday to give the Devils enough healthy defensemen for their game against the Hurricanes.

Devils' Larsson To Sit Wednesday

News: Adam Larsson (lower body) will not play Wednesday vs. the Hurricanes, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Though Adam Larsson will miss his second straight game, the team doesn't believe he'll require a trip to the DL, with general manager Lou Lamoriello seemingly ruling out a long layoff for the defenseman. The Devils have been hit hard with injuries on the blue line but should be back to full strength within a few weeks with Larsson, Anton Volchenkov and Bryce Salvador all demonstrating progress in their recovery within the last few days.

Devils' Larsson Likely Out Monday

News: Adam Larsson is expected to miss Monday's game against the Jets with a lower-body injury, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Adam Larsson sustained the injury when he crashed into the boards in Saturday's game against the Sharks. The team didn't clarify the injury initially beyond describing it as a lower-body injury and hasn't provided a timeline.

Larsson Returns In New Jersey Loss

News: Adam Larsson played 19:09 in Thursday's 3-2 shootout loss to Vancouver, his first action since October 17.
Analysis: Adam Larsson sat out New Jersey's last two games, but played effectively on Thursday, showing some flashes of offensive ability on rushes up the ice. He did not register a shot on goal but did see ice time in overtime. The biggest obstacle to Larsson growing as a player has been his tenuous spot in the lineup coupled with the occasional mistake when he does play. If Larsson can receive regular minutes, he can be worth a look in deep leagues, but that's a big if considering how his first two NHL seasons have gone.
