The New Jersey Devils have assigned center Steve Zalewski to Albany of the AHL Sunday.
Zalewski, 25, had no points or penalty minutes and minus-2 defensive rating in seven games after being called up on Jan. 4. He was a healthy scratch for Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Flyers.

Steve Zalewski got 12:29 minutes of playing time in his Devils' debut on Friday.
Zalewski was serving as the team's third line center because Travis Zajac (Achilles) was unavailable. Zalewski won eight of his 11 faceoffs. Zajac might return from his injury in the near future, so Zalewski's NHL stint could be a brief one.

Steve Zalewski has been called up by the New Jersey Devils.
Zalewski was presumably called up for insurance purposes because Travis Zajac won't be available for Wednesday's contest. "I'm taking warm-ups, I guess, and not planning on playing," he said. "We'll see what happens. You never know."
