News: Though the Devils haven't made it official yet, it appears unlikely that Salvador (back) will play again this season, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Impact: "[Salvador's] in rehab right now. He hasn't started skating, so I can't answer how long it will be for him to come back once he starts skating," general manager Lou Lamoriello said Thursday. The 39-year-old is in the final season of his three-year contract with the Devils. Given his age and impending free agency, it's quite possible that unless Salvador begins making some notable progress in his recovery over the next month, he may have skated in his last NHL game.
