Cam Janssen (knee) is good to play Wednesday.

Janssen's status was put in doubt after he left Tuesday's practice due to the ailment. Fortunately, his knee injury wasn't more serious than a deep bruise. "I just iced it and did what I had to do and woke up this morning, got out of bed and walked around and felt pretty good," Janssen said.

Cam Janssen sustained what's believed to be a knee injury during Tuesday's practice.

Janssen left the morning skate as a result. Devils coach Pete DeBoer still thinks he'll be able to play on Wednesday, but we're going to err on the side of caution and list him as day-to-day.

Cam Janssen scored his third goal of the season on Saturday.

Janssen has accomplished in 16 games this season what it took him 312 games before this year to do: score three goals in the NHL. He now has six career goals but his fantasy value is usually in the penalty minute category where he has only 12 minutes this season.

Cam Janssen scored his second goal in three games for the Devils on Sunday.

Is Cam Janssen a scoring machine or what? The enforcer had scored only three goals in 312 NHL games heading into this season but all of a sudden he is the reincarnate of Ilya Kovalchuk. Don't expect any more goals from Janssen this season but pick him up if you are on the lookout for penalty minutes. Is Cam Janssen a scoring machine or what? The enforcer had scored only three times in 312 NHL games before the start of the season and now has two in three games after his recall from the minors on Wednesday.

Cam Janssen scored a goal for the Devils in a 3-0 defeat of the Flyers Thursday.

Cam Janssen has agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with the New Jersey Devils.

If Janssen spends the 2013-14 campaign in the NHL, then he'll earn $550,000. "I’m really excited to be back," Janssen said tonight. "I love that organization. I got a chance to play some hockey in Albany, which at the beginning was kind of scary. Getting sent down was a little tough mentally on you because of the fact I hadn’t been down in the minors in a long time." He has 11 points and 752 penalty minutes in 312 career NHL games.

There's a chance Cam Janssen may hear from the NHL's Department of Player Safety after he delivered a hit that appeared to make contact with the head of Tampa Bay's Cory Conacher late in the second period.

He picked up a charging penalty on the play, but he doesn't feel like the play warrants supplemental discipline. "I know it's all reaction and it comes really fast, but I make sure my elbows are down," said Janssen, who joined the team from the minors Tuesday. "Some things happen the way they are, but I make sure my elbows are down and everything else seemed to fall into place."
