Elias who was placed on the IR on Monday (retroactive to last week) with a groin injury will play in the Devils season opener tomorrow.
Elias is expected to open the season as the first line centre with Damian Brunner and Ryane Clowe on his wings. Even at 37-years-old he is one of fantasy's most durable and consistent forwards. He has only missed two games in the last three seasons and would have been on pace for his third consecutive 60-plus point season last year, had it been an 82-game schedule. Deploy Elias as you would.
