      Devils' Jon Merrill: On hand as extra blueliner Thursday

      Merrill appears to be the extra defenseman for Thursday night's road game in Ottawa, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. Merrill has made his way into four of six games for the Devils, but those all resulted in team losses, while the Devils have come up victorious in the past two games when he wasn't in the lineup. On a positive note, he's evidently over an illness that started earlier in the week.

Merrill will miss his second straight game Tuesday, as he was also held out of Sunday's tilt against the Rangers due to the illness. He was reportedly feeling better Monday, but obviously still isn't healthy enough to re-join the Devils' lineup. He'll hope to return to action Thursday against the Senators.

The defenseman could suit up for Tuesday's game against the Coyotes, but if not, his next chance to return will come Thursday.
