Newark, NJ (Sports Network) - The New Jersey Devils placed defenseman Paul Martin on injured reserve Monday.

The 27-year-old Martin has missed the last four games with upper body soreness. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound rearguard has four assists in 10 games this season.

He is the sixth Devil to land on the injured list, joining goaltender Martin Brodeur, defenseman Andy Greene and forwards Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond, Bobby Holik and Brian Rolston.

A second-round (62nd overall) by New Jersey in 2000, Martin has collected 19 goals and 104 assists in 315 career games.

The club also assigned forward Patrick Davis to Lowell of the American Hockey League.
