Vladimir Zharkov has been returned to the AHL.

He did not earn a point or register a shot in four games with New Jersey after being called up from the minors last Friday.

The New Jersey Devils have placed Vladimir Zharkov on waivers.

"He had a decent camp. It's a case of some other guys separated themselves from the group," Devils coach Pete DeBoer said. "For me he didn't separate himself from the group." He is projected to start the season in AHL Albany, unless he gets claimed off of waivers.
