Corrente Out With Broken Hand; Eckford and Vasyunov Recalled

The Devils’ paper-thin defense took another hit today as the team announced rookie Matt Corrente suffered a broken hand in the team’s 5-2 loss last night.

It’s unknown how long Corrente will be out. In six games, Corrente recorded three assists and was a minus-1 with 31 penalty minutes. The defenseman fought Ryane Clowe in the second period, but continued to play in the third. He was ejected at 4:28 of the third period after Jamie Langenbrunner was high-sticked by Douglas Murray. There are still no replays showing why he was ejected.

The Devils recalled defenseman Tyler Eckford on an emergency basis from the Albany Devils. In six AHL games, Eckford has no goals, two assists and a plus-2 rating.

In three NHL games last season, Eckford recorded one assist.

The team also recalled Alexander Vasyunov, who made his NHL debut last Saturday in the Devils’ 6-1 loss to the Sabres.
