Devils' Sergey Kalinin: Out for Monday's contest
Kalinin (illness) will not return to the lineup when first eligible, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Coach John Hynes indicated Monday that Kalinin will need to get a couple practices under his belt before he would be considered as an option for the lineup. The 25-year-old winger will now aim to rejoin the lineup Thursday against the Bruins, but will need to make some progress in practice. Even when healthy, Kalinin doesn't provide a ton of offense (just 15 points in 78 games last season), leaving him most valuable in leagues that include hits.
