The Devils assigned Yakovlev to AHL Binghamton on Friday.

The Devils may be demoting Yakovlev in order to make room for another forward, as Miles Wood suffered an upper-body injury during Thursday's loss to the Islanders and may not be available for Saturday's matchup with Minnesota. Yakovlev, a rookie blueliner, has notched five points in 14 appearances with the big club this campaign.
