Boucher called up. Havlat on IR - Cammalleri Hurt Jaw


Recommended Posts



NEWARK — Reid Boucher's call-up from the minors by the Devils does not mean he will play in Tuesday night's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins at Consol Energy Center.

That will hinge on whether Mike Cammalleri, who was getting X-Rays on his jaw, is capable of playing. Cammalleri was elbowed in the jaw Friday night, but continued to feel pain during Saturday night's game in Ottawa, so the Devils asked for precautionary tests.

Coach Pete DeBoer said he wasn't sure whether Cammalleri would travel with the team to Pittsburgh. Boucher will make the trip.

If Boucher does get to play before he is returned to Albany, he knows he needs to play better than he has in the AHL so far this season. He has one goal in six games.

does cammalleri have an injury history like havlat and clowe? Serious question, I don't really know.


In four out of the last seven seasons, he's missed 15-19 games in each of those four seasons.

The good news is these aren't serious injuries. I'm not worried about the long-term for now. Can't imagine Cammalleri missing more than another game at most.


Same here but you never know with the Devils and their injury reports.  "Lower body injury" for them can mean anything between a Charley horse to missing a leg.


Doesn't sound like Cammy's injury is bad, but damn I would be nervous if he starts missing more than 2 games....  Devils need his offense in the worst way.
