Tootoo (foot) was activated from injured reserve Friday, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.

Tootoo was considered close to returning to action Thursday against the Blues, but the team decided to give him an additional day to cover from the bruised foot. Now that he's seemingly healthy and ready to go, expect Tootoo to rejoin the fourth line for Friday's tilt with the Red Wings.

Tootoo (foot) will not be activated from injured reserve in advance of Thursday's game against the Blues, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.

Tootoo was deemed healthy enough to join the Devils on their two-game road swing and was on the ice for morning skate Thursday, but coach Pete DeBoer determined that the winger wasn't quite ready to play yet. It seems reasonable to think that Tootoo could be in option for the second game of the back-to-back Friday, when DeBoer might be more willing to rest one of his fourth liners to create an opening in the lineup.

Tootoo (foot) will join the Devils for their back-to-back road games in St. Louis on Thursday and Detroit on Friday, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.

Tootoo was cleared to make the trip after taking part in Wednesday's optional practice. The fourth-liner, who is working his way back from a bruised foot, remains on injured reserve, so he won't be cleared to play until the Devils formally activate him.

Tootoo (foot) practiced with the team Monday morning, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.

Tootoo is still on IR, but should be treated as day-to-day since he is eligible to be activated at any time. Even though the winger may be ready to return to the lineup, he practiced as an extra forward Monday, so he likely won't be in the lineup Tuesday against the Blues.

Tootoo has a bone bruise on his left foot, and has been placed on the injured reserve, retroactive to Oct. 21, and is considered day-to-day.

His foot isn't broken, which is good news, but he will need to sit out until Oct. 28 after being placed on injured reserve.

Tootoo (foot) will not play in the Devils' next two games Friday and Saturday, Rich Chere of The Ledger reports.

GM Lou Lamoriello would not reveal the results of the X-rays taken of Tootoo's foot, but he did rule Tootoo out for both of the Devils' games this weekend. It's not clear if Tootoo will miss further action beyond Saturday's game, but his next opportunity to take the ice will come Tuesday in Pittsburgh.

Tootoo missed Wednesday's practice with a foot injury, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Tootoo hurt himself while blocking a shot Tuesday against the Rangers and was sent in for an X-ray for further clarity on the matter. If the injury is deemed severe enough to keep him out of the lineup Friday against Dallas, Jacob Josefson or Damien Brunner would likely step in to take his spot on the fourth line.

Tootoo signed a one-year, $550,000 contract with the Devils on Tuesday, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

The hard-nosed winger beat out a slew of forward candidates in camp to claim a spot on the Devils' fourth line. He'll be a source of hits and penalty minutes when he's in the lineup, but it might not be long before he becomes a regular healthy scratch.

Tootoo will sign with the Devils on Tuesday, Rich Chere of The Star-Ledger reports.

Tootoo joined the the Devils on a tryout basis in mid-September, and he apparently showed enough to earn a spot on the Devils' Opening Night roster. He figures to open the season either as a fourth-line winger or a reserve winger.

Tootoo will attend the New Jersey Devils' training camp on a professional tryout basis, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

While the odds of Tootoo landing a spot on an NHL roster are slim, Devils GM Lou Lamoriello apparently likes what he sees in him. "He's a different dimension type of player," Lamoriello said of Tootoo. "He's exciting, he bangs and hits. It's intriguing. He played against us and he got my attention when he played for Nashville." Even if he does manage to win himself a job this season, it will likely be as a third- or fourth-line agitator which does not warrant much attention in most fantasy formats. Tootoo racked up just eight points in 53 games playing for Detroit over the past two seasons.
