The New Jersey Devils announced on Sunday morning that they’ve recalled goaltender Isaac Poulter from the Utica Comets.

In a corresponding move, New Jersey reassigned defenseman Tyler Wotherspoon to the American Hockey League where he will rejoin the Comets.

The Devils recently signed Poulter to a two-year, two-way contract. Poulter’s contract holds an annual average value annual average value of $812,500. New Jersey recalled Poulter on an emergency loan on Feb. 21st where he would pull a Devils sweater on for the first time. However, Poulter served as a backup goaltender to Nico Daws against the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens on Feb. 22nd and 24th.

Per the Devils, “Poulter has spent the majority of his season with the Comets where he’s played 28 games and has a 17-8-1 record. He’s averaging 2.55 goals against and has a .911 save percentage. Poulter has four shutouts in the AHL this season. The goaltender played one game with the Devils ECHL affiliate, the Adirondack Thunder, this season as well.”

Jake Allen started Saturday’s tilt against the Ottawa Senators, marking his fourth straight start. Kaapo Kahkonen will likely start today on Long Island when the Devils face the New York Islanders at UBS Arena.

Therefore, Allen potentially will receive a full day off after a 2-2-0 four-game stretch in which he recorded a .915 SV%.
