The Devils summoned defenseman Seth Helgeson from Albany (AHL) on emergency recall Wednesday and placed center Stephen Gionta (right ankle) on injured reserve retroactive to Nov. 23.

Defenseman Adam Larsson remains sidelined with a lower body injury.

"Larsson is out. He will not be skating," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "It should not be long term."

Lamoriello said both Anton Volchenkov (leg) and Eric Gelinas (charley horse) would be game time decisions. Both took part in the morning skate.

"If one or two or okay, they'll certainly play," Lamoriello said.

Captain Bryce Salvador (fractured foot) and winger Ryane Clowe (head) are both skating on their own and there is no timetable fore their return. Lamoriello said he would have no further comments on Clowe or Salvador until they are ready to play.

In 19 games for Albany, Helgeson has two points (no goals, two assists). He is minus-1 with 34 penalty minutes.
