The New Jersey Devils have sent Peter Harrold to the minors.

Harrold cleared waivers on Tuesday, but he wasn't immediately demoted. It's possible that New Jersey was waiting to see if it could sign Jordin Tootoo before determining if the 23rd roster spot would go to Harrold.

Peter Harrold has successfully cleared waivers.

Harrold hasn't been sent to the minors yet though. That might still happened, but it looks like the Devils are still finalizing their roster plans for the start of the 2014-15 campaign.
Oct 7 - 12:36 PM

Although Peter Harrold is on waivers, he might not end up being sent to the minors.

Harrold took part in Tuesday's practice and the Devils have been vague about their plans with him. He had four assists in 33 games in 2013-14.
Oct 7 - 10:55 AM

Peter Harrold (foot) has been activated from injured reserve.

He's expected to take Anton Volchenkov's place in the lineup Monday night. In 21 games this season, Harrold has two assists and a minus-5 rating.
Feb 3 - 2:11 PM

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.
Feb 3 - 7:57 AM

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.
Jan 21 - 10:25 AM

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 has a fractured bone in his foot.

Harrold will spend the next week wearing a cast before being re-evaluated. He has two assists and 10 penalty minutes in 21 games this season.

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.
