Mills returned to Albany


Called up just hours before Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Brad Mills has been sent back to Albany (AHL).

The 28-year-old center was summoned as insurance for Zach Parise, but Parise played despite a sore left hand. Mills was a healthy scratch in New Jersey's 4-1 win.

Mills has three goals, nine assists and 65 penalty minutes for the Albany Devils this season.
