Mattias Tedenby on non-roster waivers, Ryan Carter returns for Devils

Mattias Tedenby has been placed on non-roster waivers by the New Jersey Devils, but general manager Lou Lamoriello claims its a move strictly to get Ryan Carter back in the lineup.

"The only thing it means is it allows us to activate a player today," Lamoriello said. "What the non-roster waiver means, is it an injured player becomes available prior to a roster spot being available you can make (a spot) available by putting it as a non-roster (move). And what that means is he would go ti the miners if he clears waivers. (Tedenby) would go down because Carter is healthy."

Tedenby has dressed for the Devils on just 15 occasions this season and has a disappointing one point.

If the Devils' 2008 first-round draft pick does not get plucked off of the waiver wire by noon on Saturday, Tedenby will return to Albany (AHL) where he recently had three goals and one assist during a December conditioning assignment.

"I want to see Teddy go down and be the best player and then what he does is he forces himself to get in the lineup," said Lamoriello.

In his last appearance with the Devils, Tedenby saw just 6:48 of ice time, registered no shots on goal and had a rating of -1. He has played less than 50 minutes in all 15 games combined.

According to Tom Gulitti of The Record, Ryan Carter will be activated for tonight's game when the Devils host the Blackhawks at Prudential Center.
