The New Jersey Devils have placed Ryan Carter on IR and recalled Reid Boucher from the Albany Devils.

"It's not like bringing an 18-year-older in." Lou Lamoriello said this morning. " He's played his junior out so he's mature and he's a pure goal-scorer."

The former Sarnia Sting winger has played in 21 games with Albany this season, combining for 18 points with ten goals and eight assists.

Last season Boucher led the Ontario Hockey League with 62 goals, breaking the previous record of 58 goals set by Tampa Bay's Steven Stamkos. In two seasons with Sarnia, Boucher posted 90 goals and 55 assists for 145 points in 135 games.

Boucher was drafted by the New Jersey Devils in 2011 and signed a three-year entry level contract with the club in March of 2013. In his season debut with Albany last year, Boucher scored one goal and added two assists.

He has yet to make his NHL debut, but it's only a matter of hours before he does.

"Scoring-wise he's had success [in Albany] and he's been playing extremely well," Lamoriello stated. " He'll get an opportunity tonight."

Boucher is skating with the team in this mornings pre-game skate wearing the No. 15. The Devils will host the Montreal Canadiens tonight at the Prudential Center.
