NEWARK— Adam Larsson is back with the Devils and back in a familiar spot on defense alongside Eric Gelinas.
An emergency recall from Albany (AHL) because defenseman Jon Merrill is out after being struck in the face by a deflected shot, Larsson said he was happy to be back after playing 32 games in the minors.
“You’re always happy when you get the call. You always want to be up here and be a part of it. I’m really glad to be back here,” Larsson said.
“I’ve been here for three years so I pretty much know everybody here. Of course, I’m glad to be back with Geli. We played pretty good when we played together last time.”
