With Ryan Carter returning to the lineup against the Blackhawks following a knee injury, winger Mattias Tedenby was put on non-roster waivers by the team. The move allows for another team to claim him, but if he is not claimed, he can be sent down to Albany.

This move isn't very surprising, in fact it was a move that seemed like it was bound to happen. With Tedenby being put on non-roster waivers, it not only immediately cleared the roster space for Carter, but it does allow the Devils to stick him in Albany. At this point, it's just a matter of if he gets claimed by any team. If he is not claimed by noon on Saturday, he will be sent to the A-Devils.

At this juncture, it would be a better move for both parties if Tedenby is claimed by another team. The speedy, former first-round draft pick has shown some flashes of strong play, but has been plagued by inconsistency in his career. He never really seemed to fit into the Devils system, which requires both strong forechecking and backchecking.?

Devils Defenseman Alexander Urbom has been picked up by the Washington Capitals after the Devils placed the young defenseman on waivers yesterday.

This is a puzzling move for New Jersey, as there were certainly a few other options to be sent down with a far lesser risk of being picked up. Not to diminish the play of Stephen Gionta, but sending him down, even if it was just for a few games, might have been a smarter move than to expose Urbom to waivers.

I'm not all that surprised by this. Janssen wasn't even cracking five minutes a game when he was in the lineup and Krys Barch offers more of an overall package than Cam does. I have to wonder what the next move is for the Devils. If they send Stefan Matteau back to juniors, that would clear up two roster spots. Is this the Devils way of clearing space for Mathieu Darche in addition to Adam Henrique's pending return? Stay tuned..
