The Devils recalled Carrick (finger) from his conditioning assignment with AHL Binghamton on Thursday, but he'll remain on long-term injured reserve for the time being, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

Carrick appeared in three AHL games with Binghamton but went pointless and was a minus-3. He'll join the Devils in Colorado ahead of the front end of the team's two-game road trip that starts Friday. Another update on the 25-year-old's status should surface once he's activated off IR.
