Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The New Jersey Devils placed forward Patrik Elias on injured reserve Thursday and activated defenseman Peter Harrold from IR.
Elias has missed New Jersey's last two games with an upper-body injury. The move is retroactive to Oct. 30, one day after Elias posted an assist in a 2-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The 37-year-old left wing has posted three goals and four assists over 10 games in his 18th NHL season -- all with New Jersey.
Harrold hasn't played since Oct. 22 due to a right elbow injury. The 30-year- old blueliner has yet to record a point in nine games with the Devils this season.
