Elias (groin) will return to the Devils lineup on Wednesday.
Elias has missed the last five games with a groin injury, but will be back in the lineup tonight vs. the Senators. Elias will skate on the second line with Travis Zajac and Martin Havlat. He has 11 points (3G / 9A) in 26 games this season.
The Devils have placed Patrik Elias (groin) on IR.
Elias will miss his second straight game and third of the last four because of a groin injury. His placement on IR is retroactive to December 6th, which means he is eligible to be activated on December 13th. They placed him on IR to make room for Reid Boucher to be recalled.
Elias suffered the groin injury in the Devils loss to Pittsburgh on Tuesday. New Jersey will also be without Jaromir Jagr, who has the flu, leaving them with Scott Gomez, who made his season debut on Tuesday, as the only healthy member of their first line. They will recall a forward this afternoon.
Elias (undisclosed) left Tuesday’s game and did not return.
Elias was injured when he was hit by a teammate’s shot. Following the game, Scott Gomez said he believes that Elias suffered an elbow injury on the play. Head coach Pete DeBoer did not have an update on Elias following Tuesday’s loss.
Elias missed Tuesday's qualification game against Slovakia with an illness, but will be back in the lineup this afternoon. He will centre the third line with Martin Erat and Jakub Voracek on his wings.
Elias (upper-body) will join the Devils in Colorado and is expected to play on Thursday.
Elias will miss his seventh straight game tonight, but should play on Thursday. He has been sidelined since December 31 because of an upper-body injury he suffered vs. Pittsburgh. Elias has recorded 25 points (7G / 18A) in 33 games.
Elias (back spasms) was activated off of IR and is expected to play Friday.
Elias participated in practice again this morning and hopes to be in the lineup tonight. Being activated is a good indicator that he will play. Elias has three goals and seven points in 10 games. He will skate with Damien Brunner and Michael Ryder tonight.
Elias (back spasms) hopes to return to the lineup tomorrow vs. L.A.
Elias returned to practice today which is a good sign he is ready to return after missing the last six games. The Devils desperately need an infusion of offence in their lineup, so hopefully for New Jersey fans, Elias will provide the team with a much needed spark. Monitor his status tomorrow.
