With the Olympics in full swing, the only real Devils’ news has come from those playing in the tournament. But with the season about to start again, here’s some recent updates from the team.
David Clarkson will join the team and return to lineup March 2 against San Jose. The winger practiced the past two days and will play. Defenseman Paul Martin, however, will not make the trip. The defenseman still cannot take shots and hasn’t practiced with the team. He’s looking to rejoin the team March 10 against the Rangers.
Devils Olympians Patrik Elias and Ilya Kovalchuk will rejoin the team in San Jose.
A quick Olympic update: The U.S. women lost in the gold medal game, 2-0, to Canada. They’ll bring home the silver. It’s an improvement over their finish four years ago, when they brought home the bronze from the Torino Olympics.
