Devils rookie defenseman Adam Larsson will fly home to Sweden following Tuesday night’s game against the Rangers to attend the funeral of his grandmother, who died three weeks ago.
“He was very close to his grandmother and we respect that he wants to go home for his family,” Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said.
“It will be nice to go home and reload a little,” Larsson said.
Larsson won’t leave, though, until after facing the Rangers for the first time in his career. Although he said none of his teammates had told him yet about the intensity of the rivalry, he was looking forward to it.
“I really want to play in this game,” the 19-year-old Swede said.
