Joe Whitney Recalled by the New Jersey Devils

The New Jersey Devils have recalled forward Joe Whitney, according to the Hockey News.  The 25 year-old lefty winger has played in 40 games this season with the Albany Devils of the AHL, putting up some impressive numbers (16 goals and 20 assists).

GM Lou Lamoriello stated that Whitney has proven himself worthy of a shot on the big club:
"He's leading us in scoring in the minors, he led us last year and he deserves the opportunity and we'll just go from there."
Whitney will play left wing on a line with Jaromir Jagr and Travis Zajac.
