Davis, Palmieri recalled
Elias was injured after taking a hard hit from Ryan Wilson at Colorado on Saturday. He was taken off the ice on a stretcher and missed the Devils' 4-0 loss to the Islanders on Monday. Elias, the Devils’ all-time leading scorer, is set to be further evaluated this week.
Davis, 23, is tied for second on Lowell with 28 points (12g-16a) in 44 games. He made his NHL debut last season, appearing in one game. The 6-2, 195-lb. native of Sterling, Mich., was taken by the Devils in the fourth round of the 2005 Entry Draft.
Palmieri, 20, ranks fourth on Lowell with 26 points (15g-11a) in 41 games, and is third among AHL rookies in goals. The 6-3, 220-lb., Utica, N.Y., native was New Jersey’s third-round selection in 2007.
