The New Jersey Devils had some activity going into their game on Sunday against Zach Parise and the Minnesota Wild.

The team activated goalie Cory Schneider off of injured reserve and put defenseman Peter Harrold on it. They’ve recalled 2010 second-round pick Jon Merrill from Albany to take Harrold’s place.

According to Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice, Schneider’s return means he’ll start in Minnesota against the Wild.

Meanwhile, Merrill’s recall could put him in line to play in his first NHL game. The former University of Michigan standout spent part of last season in the AHL after departing college. Harrold hasn’t played since October 22.

    Excited to possibly have Gelinas, Merrill and Larsson in the lineup at the same time – the future of the Devils def corps is in their hands..

      Agreed – I’m looking past the complete mediocrity of Fayne and Harrold and the complete slowing-with-age of Volchenkov and Salvador. Greene’s the only one I want to be around in a few years with these young guys. Can’t wait to see Boucher up too.

    Really excited to see what Merrill can do. He’s been very productive in the AHL so far and is an uber-underrated prospect.
