This time it's defenseman Matt Corrente who has been bitten by the injury bug. Selected in the first round of the 2006 Entry Draft, Corrente has had trouble cracking the NHL lineup and staying on the ice too.

The 23-year-old had shoulder surgery Friday and is expected to miss the remainder of the season.

Corrente had played in just 11 of the Albany Devils' first 20 games. He had two assists and 32 penalty minutes.

Last season, Corrente played in only 39 games because of a torn hamstring and in 2010-11, his game total was just 25 owning to a broken hand and a shoulder injury..

In 34 career regular season NHL games with the Devils, Corrente has no goals, six assists and 68 penalty minutes.
