Peter Harrold (foot) will be activated on Monday if Anton Volchenkov is unable to go.

Harrold has been out of action since December 7 with the fractured foot. He practiced on Sunday with Jonathon Merrill. "The only time he's not been good or his game has fallen off is when he's gotten fatigued because of how hard he plays," coach Peter DeBoer said. "So he should be fresh. I've got no problem putting him in. I think he can help us if it comes to that." He has no fantasy value as his two assists in 21 games will attest to.

Peter Harrold (foot) resumed practicing on Monday.

Harrold was held out of Devils' practices for roughly a month and a half. He has two assists in 21 games in 2013-14.

Peter Harrold (foot) has started to skate lightly.

Harrold has been out since Dec. 7 with a fractured bone in his foot. There still isn't a timetable for his return.
Jan 8 - 1:20 PM

Peter Harrold (foot) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

Harrold has a fractured bone in his foot and needs to wear a cast for a week, so the decision to put him on the injured reserve list isn't surprising. He'll be re-evaluated once he gets out of the cast.

Peter Harrold will return from an elbow injury Thursday night.

Just an FYI as he doesn't have any fantasy value. Mark Fayne will be a healthy scratch to make room for him.

Peter Harrold has a right elbow injury and was placed on the injured reserve list as a result.

Harrold originally sustained the injury on Oct. 22 and underwent an MRI on Sunday. The move is presumably retroactive so he can be activated at any time.

Peter Harrold is healthy enough to play Thursday after having his right wrist/arm jammed on a hit from Columbus' David Savard on Tuesday.

However, he won't suit up against Vancouver. Eric Gelinas and Adam Larsson will play on the team's bottom-pairing instead. "Harry's played some good hockey for us," coach Pete DeBoer said. "I think he was fantastic early. He's not a big guy. I think sometimes the grind levels his play off a little bit and we're just going to take a step back here and put some fresh legs in."

The New Jersey Devils have re-signed defenseman Peter Harrold for two more years at $1.6 million.

The deal will average $800,000 per season and keep Harrold in New Jersey through at least the 2014-15 season. Harrold will continue to serve as a depth defenseman for the Devils and has no real fantasy value.

Peter Harrold appears to be close to re-signing with New Jersey.

Harrold's agent, Steve Bartlett, spoke with Devils GM Lou Lamoriello at the draft this weekend and said the two sides were "not far apart" and he was "optimistic" about agreeing to a new deal.

Peter Harrold's agent, Steve Bartlett, will probably speak with Devils GM Lou Lamoriello at the NHL draft this weekend.

"I've talked to Lou just a bit and I'm cautiously optimistic that we'll be able to get something done," Bartlett said. "Lou's had his hand full, so, if not before, I'm sure I'll get together with him at the draft and we'll see if we can find mutual common ground before the free agency date. Peter liked it there and the coaches seemed to like the role he played. So, we're hopeful we can pull something together." Harrold can become an unrestricted free agent if a new deal isn't agreed to prior to July 5.

New Jersey GM Lou Lamoriello has spoken with Peter Harrold's camp about a contract extension.

Harrold can become an unrestricted free agent this summer if a deal isn't worked out prior to July 5. He has played 34 games with the Devils over the past two seasons, including 23 during the lockout-shortened campaign.

Peter Harrold scored his first goal of the season but the Devils came up short in their 2-1 loss to the Canadiens on Saturday night.

Harrold, who also picked up a minor penalty and had four shots on goal, has only played in seven games this season. He may be playing over 17 minutes a night, but he's not a very exciting defenseman for fantasy purposes. Ilya Kovalchuk had the assist.

Peter Harrold was okay after a hard hit from Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn late in the third period of Saturday's game.

"It didn't tickle, but I've been hit like that before," Harrold said. "That's part of the game sometimes and you shake it off and move on." Schenn received a charging minor for his actions, but he also appeared to leave his feat on the hit and, even more concerning, Harrold got hit in the head. Even still, it sounds like Harrold didn't have any immediate concussion symptoms. It's also worth noting that Harrold actually defended Schenn making contact with his head. "But I was down low anyways," Harrold said. "It didn't matter how he hit me. He was going to hit me in the face."
