Devils recall Janssen, will replace Matteau in lineup


The New Jersey Devils have recalled Cam Janssen from AHL Albany.

The Devils put Janssen, 28, on waivers in late January and dispatched him to Albany upon clearing. He’s since appeared in 14 AHL games, recording two points and 37 PIM.

Janssen wasn’t much of a factor while with the Devils this year, appearing in just three games while posting a minus-1 rating.

According to Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger, Janssen will draw into the lineup tonight against Tampa Bay, replacing rookie Stefan Matteau, who is a healthy scratch.

This will give Janssen a chance to throw down with former teammate (and roomate!) BJ Crombeen.
