The Devils don't appear to have any plans to send Adam Larsson down to the minors for playing time.
"It really is just five games and certainly all of us are aware of a young player," GM Lou Lamoriello said. "All of us are aware of his progress and development and both the coaching staff and myself are on the same page with this. When it's the right time, he'll play." Larsson has been a healthy scratch for New Jersey's opening five games this season.
