The New Jersey Devils have called up top prospect Alexander Holtz from the AHL's Utica Comets, the team announced Thursday.

The Devils selected Holtz with the seventh overall pick in the 2020 NHL Draft. He's scored five goals in four games with the Comets this season.

The 19-year-old has joined the Devils in California and will practice with the team Thursday. The club has two games remaining on its road trip against the Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks.

To make room on the roster, New Jersey waived goaltender Scott Wedgewood on Wednesday. The netminder was claimed by the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday, according to TSN's Chris Johnston.
