The Devils are holding an optional practice today, but it looks like most of the players will be participating.
Brian Rolston, Niclas Bergfors, Matt Halischuk, David Clarkson, Ilkka Pikkarainen, Paul Martin and Johnny Oduya were on the ice early working on taking long slap shots from center ice with the coaches. I'm not sure what the purpose of this was.
Here's the list of the players on the ice today.
Goaltenders: Martin Brodeur, Yann Danis.
Defensemen: Johnny Oduya, Paul Martin, Bryce Salvador, Cory Murphy, Mike Mottau, Andy Greene, Mark Fraser,
Forwards: Brian Rolston, Niclas Bergfors, Matt Halischuk, David Clarkson, Ilkka Pikkarainen, Andrew Peters, Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond, Rod Pelley.
Not skating: Zach Parise, Travis Zajac, Jamie Langenbrunner, Dainius Zubrus, Rob Niedermayer, Jay Pandolfo, Colin White.
This is Fraser's first practice with the team since he was injured in a Sept. 24 fight with Daniel Carcillo in Philadelphia. He remains on injured reserve.
Several players logged some big minutes Monday night, so it's understandable that they're not out there with no game on Wednesday. Jamie Langenbrunner and Travis Zajac both played more than 22 minutes against the Rangers, which is a lot for a forward.
