The Devils have recalled defenseman Peter Harrold from Albany of the American Hockey League, presumably to replace an injured Anton Volchenkov. Volchenkov missed Sunday's game in Pittsburgh because of a lower-body injury.
Each NHL team is permitted four recalls after the trade deadline until their AHL affiliate is eliminated from play, NOT including those players called up on an emergency basis.
Harrold, 28, has five goals and 21 assists and a plus-2 rating in 61 games for Albany; he has no points and a minus-1 rating in five games with the Devils this season.
Following Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Penguins, the Devils host the Blackhawks Tuesday.

The Devils are expected to sign C David Wohlberg, a sixth-round pick in the 2008 draft, to an Amateur Tryout Contract (ATO).
Wohlberg, who just finished his senior season at University of Michigan, recorded 16 goals and 17 assists in 41 games for the Wolverines. The 21-year-old South Lyon, MI native will report the Albany Devils of the AHL.
