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

News: Adam Larsson (lower body) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Flyers, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Adam Larsson has been in a holding pattern waiting to return from IR. His exact return date remains uncertain at this point.

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.

Adam Larsson

Devils' Larsson To Sit Out Tuesday

News: Adam Larsson will be a healthy scratch Tuesday against the Canucks, the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Adam Larsson's benching serves the dual purpose of getting Mark Fayne his first ice time of the season while placing some responsibility on the 20-year-old Larsson for the Devils' coughing up a 3-0 third period lead in Monday's loss to the Oilers. Owners in daily leagues should move Larsson to their benches for the day, but it doesn't sound like the young defenseman will be in coach Pete DeBoer's doghouse beyond Tuesday's game.

Devils' Larsson Scores

News: Adam Larsson lit the lamp against the Canadiens on Monday. He also saw 21:28 of ice time.
Analysis: Adam Larsson was a promising high pick a couple years ago, but last season he had a bit of a sophomore slump. However, he is still only 20, and maybe this is the season he has a breakout.

Devils Looking For Larsson To Improve

News: Devils coach Pete DeBoer said he is looking for Adam Larsson to take "another step" this season, the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Adam Larsson was asked to concentrate on his defensive play last season, and the result was no goals and six assists in 37 games. However, the Devils still have high hopes for the 20-year-old, and he'll likely shoot more this season than he did during his sophomore campaign.

Devils' Larsson (Foot) Will Play Friday

News: Adam Larsson is still experiencing soreness in his right foot after being hit with a shot during Tuesday's practice, but he will play Friday against the Senators, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Adam Larsson's foot was so swollen Wednesday that he couldn't put on his skate boot and had to sit out the loss to Boston. The swelling has reportedly subsided enough to where the can play Friday, which is good news for the Devils, as Anton Volchenkov (suspension) and Bryce Salvador (wrist) are both out.

Adam Larsson

Devils' Larsson Out Wednesday

News: Adam Larsson (unspecified injury) won't play Wednesday against the Bruins, the Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Adam Larsson, who was evidently hit by a shot Tuesday, will be replaced in the Devils' lineup Wednesday by Henrik Tallinder.

Devils' Larsson A Healthy Scratch Friday

News: Larson will be replaced in the lineup Friday by Mark Fayne, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Adam Larsson had been playing decently in some situations, pairing up with veteran Andy Greene. Look for Larsson to be in and out of the lineup the season's final month.

Larsson Scratched Thursday For Devils

News: Adam Larsson was a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against Buffalo.
Analysis: Adam Larsson had been in the lineup for several weeks but has a modest three assists and plus-4 rating to show for it. Look for Larsson to be in and out of the lineup throughout the season.

Larsson Eased Back Into Devils Lineup

News: Adam Larsson has played an average of 18:22 over New Jersey's last three games after being a healthy scratch the first four contests of the season.
Analysis: Adam Larsson has seen almost no power play time in his first three contests, but that could come. He helped set up one of New Jersey's goals in last Thursday's loss to the Islanders and made a few smooth passes Sunday, also against the Islanders. If the Devils decide to give Larsson a regular role and consistent ice time, he could produce. Keep tabs on his ice time if you are interested in rostering him, and he's worth a look in deep keeper leagues.

Devils' Larsson Expected To Be A Scratch Saturday

News: Adam Larsson will be a scratch for Saturday's season opener against the Islanders, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Adam Larsson was the fourth pick in the 2011 NHL Draft and it sounds like he'll be a healthy scratch Saturday. He struggled during his rookie campaign, but was able to tally a respectable 18 points in 65 games. Look for Larsson to be in and out of the lineup early in the season, but an argument is there that Larsson deserves the ice time more than a player like Mark Fayne.

Devils' Larsson Adapting in Albany

News: Adam Larsson has four assists through nine games in the AHL with Albany.
Analysis: Adam Larsson struggled defensively at times during his rookie season one year earlier, ultimately seeing those struggles manifest themselves in sporadic playing time during the team's run to the Stanley Cup Final. Larsson has the type of potential and hockey sense that teams covet and a season in Albany can only benefit him massively. The four points in nine games is a steady indicator of him growing more comfortable in his all-around game.

Devils Send Larsson To AHL Albany

News: Adam Larsson has been assigned to the AHL, reports USA Today.
Analysis: He'll join Adam Henrique in Albany. There's going to be some great young hockey players in the AHL early this year.
