Henrique (lower-body) is available for tonight's contest with the Canadiens.
Henrique left early and did not return after being injured in Monday's game in Montreal. Henrique who has had a slow start to the season, does have a three game point streak going right now (1G / 2A). He is available, but not officially in the lineup as of now.
Devils forward Adam Henrique joined the team’s growing list of injured players when he sat out the third period Monday with what the team is calling a lower-body injury.
Henrique appeared to hurt his leg when he became tangled with Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin and fell behind the Montreal net with 2:29 left in the first period. He tried to play through it in the second period, but could not.Henrique was unsure if he’ll be able to play in Wednesday night’s rematch with the Canadiens at Prudential Center. "We’ll see," Henrique said. "We’ll just kind of take it a day at a time here. We’ll see how I feel [today] and go from there."
The Devils signed Henrique to a 6-year, $24-million contract.
The 23-year-old forward had a great rookie year in 2011-12 when he posted 51 points (16 G, 35 A) in 74 games. However he was only able to muster up 16 points in 42 games in the lockout shortened season. With the departure of Ilya Kovalchuk, the Devils needed to re-sign Henrique. He should be considered as a good bounce back candidate heading into the 2013-14 season.
Adam Henrique will make his season debut tonight for the #NJDevils.
The Devils playoff hero Henrique is only owned in 56.3% of leagues (ESPN) so if he is available he'd be a good pickup. It may take him some time to get back into the swing of things but he should be just fine.
Adam Henrique (left thumb surgery) skated again today and said it is going well. "A couple more weeks."
Henrique had an amazing rookie regular season and then an even more impressive playoff run. If you have room to stash him on your roster until he is healthy, I think it would be a good idea. He should have no problem producing once he returns.
Devils center Adam Henrique, who required surgery last month to reattach a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb, got the cast off his hand this week and now will require three and a half to four weeks of rehab, general manager Lou Lamoriello said today.
Henrique will likely miss a week or two of the new shortened season
Henrique has been playing with the Albany (N.Y.) Devils during the lockout, and the American Hockey League club announced Wednesday that he will be sidelined four to six weeks because of thumb surgery.
There's an outside chance that Henrique could be available in January so this shouldn't impact his draft position - should the season start in January.
Devils rookie Adam Henrique had a three-inch scratch a some swelling in his right cheek after tonight’s 3-0 loss in Philadelphia from being struck by the stick blade of Flyers defenseman Nicklas Grossmann at 9:45 of the third period.
Henrique is a bit bumped and bruised but he probably won't miss any playing time. He has 15 goals and 46 points in 62 games.
