Volchenkov placed on IR, Janssen activated

The Devils have placed defenseman Anton Volchenkov (hand) on injured reserve and activated Cam Janssen (chest bruise) off the list.

According to the Bergen Record and Newark Star-Ledger, Janssen will not play tonight vs. Tampa but may be available Tuesday against the Panthers.

Janssen was briefly hospitalized after a frightening hit from Winnipeg's Arturs Kulda left him in some distress during the Devils' 4-2 loss to the Jets December 3.

Volchenkov reportedly re-aggravated a pre-existing hand injury in the Devils 5-4 shootout win over the Senators last Thursday.
