Breaking news out of New Jersey Devils camp this afternoon.  Forward Dainius Zubrus has been placed on the Injured Reserve and they have recalled Andrei Loktionov from Albany.

GM Lou Lamoriello spoke to the media earlier.  Here is what he has said:

“We’re still not sure how long it will be. We’ll have more knowledge over the next 48 hours.”

He also said that Loktionov played 2 games for Albany and looked good so he will practice with the Devils “a couple days.”

UPDATE 11:30 AM: Pete DeBoer said Loktionov is an option for playing Friday because he’s here, but they will look at him next two days before deciding that.
