Devils Injury Update: Jordin Tootoo placed on IR

By on 10/25/2014 01:30:00 AM

New Jersey Devils winger Jordin Tootoo was placed on injured reserve with a bruised foot Friday morning.  Tootoo will miss at least two more games according to Tom Gulitti of the Fire and Ice blog.

The 31-year-old forward injured his left foot when he blocked a shot in last Tuesday's game against the New York Rangers.  The IR move was made retroactive to that date, so the minimum seven day absence will keep Tootoo off the ice for Saturday's game in Ottawa and Tuesday's game in Pittsburgh.  Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said X-rays were negative but that Tootoo will
"be out for a little while."

Tootoo had yet to score a point through the Devils' first six games before his IR time started with Friday night's shootout loss against Dallas.
