NEWARK, N.J. – The New Jersey Devils started their game Monday with only 15 healthy skaters.
The Devils, who began the season with 20 non-goalie players to stay under the salary cap, lost defenseman Anton Volchenkov to a broken nose Saturday against Washington and forward Brian Rolston did not dress he was hurt.
The team also announced before the game that they had placed forward Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond on waivers, just as Leblond was set to begin a one-game suspension for instigating a fight in the final five minutes Saturday against Washington.
The team has not made a decision as to whether to send Leblond to the team's American Hockey League affiliate in Lowell if Leblond clears waivers.
