NEWARK, N.J. -- The New Jersey Devils have placed top goaltender Cory Schneider on injured reserve with groin and hip injuries.

The team announced the move Monday, saying Schneider is expected to start skating next week.

Schneider hasn't played since being hurt on Jan. 23 in a game against Boston. He leads the team with a 17-11-6 record with a 2.79 goals-against average.

Forward Nick Lappin was recalled from Binghamton (AHL). He will join the team for a game in Philadelphia on Tuesday.

The Devils announced the NHL awarded Taylor Hall and Will Butcher assists on the team's only goal in a 6-1 loss to Columbus on Saturday. The change, coupled with Hall's goal and assist Sunday night against Boston, extends his point-scoring streak to 14 games. He has nine goals and 12 assists during the streak.
