Loktionov sent up the river

By Katie Strang

The Devils have sent center Andrei Loktionov back to Albany, the team's AHL affiliate.

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said there would be a corresponding move to accommodate the arrival of Alexei Ponikarovsky, re-acquired by the team in a trade Wednesday evening, and this appears to be it.

Ponikarovsky, who was acquired in a trade with the Jets for two draft picks, is expected to be available for the Devils' game against the Flyers on Friday.
