Devils activate Ryan Carter from IR

The New Jersey Devils have activated left wing Ryan Carter from
injured reserve.

Carter, returning from a concussion, should be in the lineup
Saturday, when the struggling Devils take on the Sabres in Buffalo.
He will rejoin mates Steve Bernier and Stephen Gionta, reuniting a
line that was pivotal in New Jersey’s run to the Stanley Cup final
last season.

Carter was hit by a pair of Ottawa Senators – Dave Dziurzynski
and Chris Neil – on Feb. 18. He has two goals and five points this
season.

To create a spot on the roster for Carter, New Jersey shipped
center Tim Sestito to Albany of the AHL.

New Jersey, also missing starting goaltender Martin Brodeur
(back), has lost three straight.
