Corrente breaks hand, Eckford recalled
The Devils announced Thursday that defenseman Matt Corrente suffered a broken left hand in Wednesday’s game at San Jose. They have recalled blueliner Tyler Eckford from Albany (AHL) under emergency conditions.

Eckford, 25, has two assists and a plus-2 rating in six games this season with the Devils’ top affiliate. He debuted in New Jersey last season, recording one assist in three appearances. The Vancouver native recorded career highs of eight goals and 31 points in Lowell last year, and was the AHL Devils' lone representative in the 2010 AHL All-Star Game.

The Devils have also recalled left wing Alexander Vasyunov. The 22-year-old made his NHL debut against Buffalo on Oct. 23. He has one assist in five games with Albany.
