Tallinder Cleared to Play

The 33-year-old defenseman has been sidelined with a blood clot in his lower left leg. He spent the last three months taking blood thinner to get rid of the clot.

Tallinder last played January 17 in the Devils 5-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets.

He signed a four-year contract with New Jersey in 2010 worth $13.5 million.

Before being sidelined, Tallinder played in 39 games racking up six assists.
