New Jersey Devils defenseman Bryce Salvador missed Tuesday night's game against the Minnesota Wild with a lower-body injury.

According to Fire and Ice, Salvador sustained his injury during Monday night's four to two loss in Boston, when he was struck in the throat with a puck in the second period. However, despite sitting for the final 10:13 that night, Salvador said he was fine after the game.

Rookie defenseman Seth Helgeson made his NHL debut in Salvador's place, after being called up from Albany of the AHL and picked up an assist on Tuomo Ruutu's second-period goal.

Salvador has only two points so far this season (two assists) and 47 points overall with the New Jersey Devils.
