News:Adam Henrique, who was a healthy scratch for Tuesday's win over Montreal, has three points in the last 18 games.
Analysis: Much of Adam Henrique's struggle this season mirrored a 10-game losing streak by the Devils, but the kid has just three points in the last six weeks. He's a more talented player than these numbers show, but he had stretches of inconsistency after returning from a thumb injury that he suffered while playing in the AHL during the lockout. Good news is that he should be at a discounted price come next fall's drafts with a shot at hitting 20 goals and 55-60 points in a good year.
News:Adam Henrique had two goals and an assist in Wednesday's win over the Flyers.
Analysis: The two-goal game was Adam Henrique's first of the season, while the second tally came with the man advantage during the third period. Henrique now has five goals in his last seven games and appears to be pushing his way back toward last season's level of production when he racked up 51 points in 74 games as a rookie.
News:Adam Henrique scored his third goal in four games, tallying a power-play goal in Thursday's 3-2 shootout win over Buffalo.
Analysis:Adam Henrique, like many of his New Jersey teammates, had been struggling to score consistently at the end of February. He notched a clutch goal to get the Devils back on the scoreboard and eventually tie the game. He's a player that offers a bit more on the ice to the Devils than to most owners, but 10 points through 19 games aren't bad numbers, just not ideal.
News:Adam Henrique scored for the third-consecutive game, recording the game-winning power-play goal in Saturday's 3-1 win over Pittsburgh.
Analysis:Adam Henrique has been playing excellent hockey since returning from a thumb injury last week, notching four goals in six games on nine shots. The 44 percent shooting percentage is bound to regress, but Henrique is proving to be a huge asset to New Jersey's attack. He has been skating at even strength with the team's two leading scorers, David Clarkson and Patrik Elias, the last three games.
News:Adam Henrique was recalled by the Devils on Thursday, according to Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record.
Analysis: The return of Adam Henrique will be an enormous boost the Devils have been waiting for. In the 2011-12 season, he scored 16 goals and added 35 assists in 74 games. He is a young player with a bright future, but should be eased into action initially.
News:Adam Henrique returned to the lineup Thursday after missing the beginning of the season with a thumb injury and scored a game-tying goal in the third period of an eventual OT loss to the Isles.
Analysis: Coming off an impressive 51-point rookie year, Adam Henrique provided an instant boost to a Devils team that hadn't scored more than three goals in a game before Thursday. He skated 14:19 -- hardly the gradual transition back into action that we were made to expect.
News:Adam Henrique (thumb) centered the Devils fourth line at Thursday's morning skate before the contest with the Islanders, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Odds are Adam Henrique will play Thursday or Saturday's contest at the latest, although there is no official word yet. The Devils need another scoring threat in their top six forwards, as they have struggled to generate enough offense to pull away from teams. If Henrique does play, expect him to gradually see time with the team's top six. Grab him now if he's available in your league, it could pan out nicely. He had 17 goals and 51 total points as a rookie one season ago, mostly while skating with Ilya Kovalchuk and former Devil Zach Parise.
News:Adam Henrique (thumb) is very close to returning and could make his season debut as soon as Thursday, the Bergen Record reports. "He's day-to-day, so we'll have to see," Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said.
Analysis: While Lamoriello couldn't say for certain if Adam Henrique would play, the team's decision to place right wing Cam Janssen on waivers may have been made with the intention of activating Henrique prior to Thursday's game. Henrique has been sidelined since undergoing surgery Nov. 29 to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb.
News:Adam Henrique (thumb) will not be available for Tuesday's game, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Mattias Tedenby was sent to Albany on Monday, but Adam Henrique will not be the corresponding move when the Devils add a player to the active roster to replace Tedenby on Tuesday.
Devils' Henrique Participates In Friday's Practice
News:Adam Henrique (thumb/hand) took part in Friday morning's practice, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis:Adam Henrique's timetable to return is still a week-to-10 days away. Henrique has yet to shoot at full strength and will not return until he is able to do so. Henrique finished fourth on the team in points as a rookie last season, so when he returns, his presence should boost the Devils' offense.
News: Coach Pete DeBoer said Adam Henrique (thumb) is "a week to 10 days" away from being ready to play, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis:Adam Henrique had surgery on his left thumb, and DeBoer said he's still not yet able to shoot. One week would mean Henrique may be able to play against the Bruins on January 29, but the home game against the Islanders two days later may be a more ideal date.
News:Adam Henrique (thumb) was placed on injured reserve by the Devils on Friday, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: This is simply a procedural move for the Devils, as Adam Henrique, who is recovering from thumb surgery, likely will not see game action before February. Stash him on your roster for the season's first two-to-three weeks if you have room. He's assured scoring line duty with the Devils and could be a nice addition to your roster that won't cost you much at all on draft day.
News:Adam Henrique was skating Wednesday for the first time since having surgery on his left thumb in late November. GM Lou Lamoriello said Henrique remains "a couple weeks away" from shooting the puck.
Analysis: Shooting the puck would probably be the final barrier for Adam Henrique to cross in his recovery, and he could get a chance to do that in the coming weeks. Even so, it still looks like he won't play in any games until February.
Devils' Henrique Out Of Cast, But Needs 3-To-4 Weeks Rehab
News:Adam Henrique had the cast on his injured thumb removed this week, but will require three and a half to four weeks of rehab before he can resume playing, the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis:Adam Henrique underwent surgery last month to reattach a torn UCL in his left thumb, and will now need to regain his full range of motion after getting the cast removed. In all likelihood, the length of the rehab process will not allow Henrique to return by commissioner Gary Bettman's stated deadline of Jan. 19 for getting play underway.
Devils' Henrique Out Four-To-Six Weeks Following Thumb Surgery
News:Adam Henrique will undergo surgery on his left thumb Thursday and is projected to miss four-to-six weeks, the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis:Adam Henrique injured the UCL in his left thumb during a game Sunday while playing for AHL Albany. Henrique, a Calder Trophy finalist last season, would likely be unable to play right away for the Devils if the lockout concludes and a deal is reached to begin play before mid-January.
News:Adam Henrique has three goals through nine games with Albany (AHL).
Analysis:Adam Henrique hasn't been lighting up the scoresheet in The "A" but he also wasn't a prolific goal scorer his rookie season with New Jersey, topping out at 18. Henrique is one of a handful of young Devils skaters honing their skills in Albany. Should the league and the player's union settle their differences, Henrique is a solid target in the middle rounds of drafts, as he's essentially assured a place on New Jersey's top two lines, possibly alongside Ilya Kovalchuk.
News:Adam Henrique has been assigned to the AHL, reports USA Today.
Analysis: A lockout is looming so teams are sending players on entry-level deals to their AHL affiliates. Adam Henrique was a finalist for 2011-12 rookie of the year; he'll start this season in Albany.
News:Adam Henrique scored New Jersey's only goal in Monday's Game 6 loss to Los Angeles in the deciding game of the Stanley Cup Finals. Henrique finished the playoffs with five goals.
Analysis: While Adam Henrique will likley lose out on the Calder Trophy to Colorado's Gabriel Landeskog, the former Windsor Spitfire shone in his first playoff experience tallying two series-clinching overtime goals as well as the game-winner in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Henrique's production slipped later in the season, but he still finished his rookie campaign with 51 points and could be a 25-goal, 60 point candidate next season for the Devils.
Henrique Keeps Devils Alive With Late Goal Wednesday
News:Adam Henrique scored the game winner at the 15:29 mark of the third period on Wednesday night to help the Devils stave off elimination in the Stanley Cup Finals with a 3-1 win over the Kings.

News:Adam Henrique scored the game-winning goal at the 1:03 mark of overtime as the Devils downed the Rangers 3-2 on Friday to take the Eastern Conference Finals, four games to two.
Analysis: The rookie center has had a solid playoff run so far with three goals and eight assists in 18 games. Henrqiue and the Devils will square off against the Kings in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Wednesday night. Two of Adam Henrique's three goals in the playoffs are overtime winners.
News:Adam Henrique will play right wing on the Devils' second line with Patrik Elias at center and Ilya Kovalchuk on the left in Monday's Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: The Devils have been shut out in two games this series and coach Peter DeBoer wants to spark some offense from his skilled players. Adam Henrique is in a good situation with two veteran players and could benefit in Game 4.
News:Adam Henrique assisted on two of New Jersey's three goals in Tuesday's series-clinching Game 5 win over Philadelphia.
Analysis:Adam Henrique was quiet during the series against Florida, but the rookie posted four assists in the Devils' four wins over Philadelphia. Both of Henrique's goals this postseason came in New Jersey's Game 7 clincher against Florida and he is a plus-6 in 12 games.
News:Adam Henrique's second goal of the game (and series) Thursday came 3:47 into the second overtime of Game 7 on Thursday, sending New Jersey on to the second round of the playoffs.
Analysis: After recording 51 points during the regular season, Adam Henrique had only managed an assist and six shots on goal in the first six games of the series. He also struggled at the face-off dot (4-for-15), but all that's forgotten when you pot the game-winner.
News:Adam Henrique did not practice Friday, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Ilya Kovalchuk was also absent, while Cam Janssen and Eric Boulton took their spots. The 22-year-old Adam Henrique played more than 15 minutes in Thursday's Game 4, and it looks like he's just resting up before Saturday's Game 5.
News:Adam Henrique picked up a couple assists Thursday against Tampa, pushing him to 50 points on the year, best among rookies.
Analysis:Adam Henrique's been as steady as they come for the Devils this year and is certainly a strong Calder Trophy candidate. He suffered through a slump in the middle of this month, but has four points in his last four games now.
News:Adam Henrique centered a line with David Clarkson and Petr Sykora during Saturday's practice and likely will skate with them for Sunday's game in PIttsburgh, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: With the Devils welcoming Travis Zajac (achilles) back to the lineup and Adam Henrique's offensive struggles of late, it's not a surprise the team has moved him away from Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise. However, Clarkson is closing in on 30 goals and Sykora is a solid secondary scorer, so it's not like this line won't see offensive chances. Look for Henrique to get his scoring touch back after tallying a goal in Friday's loss to Toronto.
News:Adam Henrique posted his first goal in 17 games during Friday's shootout loss to Toronto.
Analysis:Adam Henrique has been quiet of late, seeing his Calder Trophy chances dwindle in the face of Gabriel Landeskog's play. Regardless of his trophy chances, Henrique had just five assists since Feb. 26 and has seen his ice time alongside Zach Parise and Ilya Kovalchuk fall as a result. Despite his recent drought, Henrique has an outside shot at hitting 20 goals and should break 50 points in what has been a solid rookie campaign.
News:Adam Henrique has no points and is a minus-5 over the last four games with three shots on goal.
Analysis:Adam Henrique has struggled of late, but he has seen less than a minute of power-play time in each of these four contests. He's still on the top line with Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise, but Patrik Elias has also seen time with the first line of late. Although he missed several games with a groin injury, Henrique has just two goals since Jan. 11.
News:Adam Henrique posted two assists in Tuesday's win over Toronto, giving him six points in the last four games.
Analysis:Adam Henrique has played solidly of late despite scoring just once in the last four contests, as he has been playing the role of provider. Look for Henrique to continue factoring into New Jersey's scoring, especially with his perch on the top line alongside Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise.
News:Adam Henrique scored his 15th goal of the season in a 3-2 shootout win over the Ducks. It was his fourth point in as many games.
Analysis: With four points in his last four games, Adam Henrique has taken over the rookie scoring lead with 38 points in 49 games, three more than Edmonton's Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Henrique has been seeing time on the team's top line with Zach Parise and Ilya Kovalchuk, the players with whom the majority of his points this season have come.
News:Adam Henrique saw some time with Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise during Saturday's loss to Florida, his first time skating with the trio since returning from a groin strain last Sunday.
Analysis: Odds are Adam Henrique will begin Tuesday's game on the team's second or third line, but the Devils were not getting much production against Florida and juggled Henrique's spot in the lineup. He has one goal in the last four games but is still atop the rookie scoring race.
News:Adam Henrique scored his first goal since returning from a minor groin strain in Thursday's shootout loss to St. Louis.
Analysis:Adam Henrique has been playing on the team's checking line the last week given the productivity of Patrik Elias between Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise, Henrique's usual spot. The talented rookie needed three games to get back on the scoresheet and should receive second and third line duty until the Devils need him on the top line. It's no reason to not play him, just don't expect a point-per game.
News:Adam Henrique returned in Sunday's win over Pittsburgh, playing 15:36 and finishing a plus-1.
Analysis:Adam Henrique had missed two weeks with a groin injury and returned to see checking line duty in the 5-2 win over Pittsburgh. The Devils' top line of Patrik Elias, Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise has been buzzing of late, so Henrique may not get his spot back on the top line immediately. Regardless, the talented youngster is back in the lineup and can be useful to those that stashed him away during his injury.
News:Adam Henrique (groin) will be back in the Devils' lineup Sunday against Pittsburgh, Bergen Record writer Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis:Adam Henrique, who missed the last three games with a groin strain, has 34 points in 43 games overall, but after his hot stretch last month, he has failed to record a point in his last four games.
News:Adam Henrique (groin) was placed on IR on Friday, Bergen Record writer Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis:Adam Henrique can be placed on the list retroactive to Jan. 24, so the transaction won't necessarily have any effect on when he returns.
News:Adam Henrique (groin) will miss Saturday's game against Philadelphia but hasn't been ruled out for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh, ESPN's Katie Strang reports.
Analysis:Adam Henrique's groin injury has been a bit stubborn, so his owners will want to follow up on his status before leaving him active at any point.
News:Adam Henrique (groin) will miss Thursday's game against Monteral, Bergen Record writer Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis:Adam Henrique is no guarantee to be ready for Saturday's game against Philadelphia, but he's technically no worse than day-to-day at the moment.
News:Adam Henrique (groin) won't play Tuesday and is day-to-day beyond that, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Owners in weekly leagues should adjust accordingly, as it's no guarantee that this absence will end after Tuesday's contest. Tread carefully here, as it's a bit surprising that he's not closer to 100 percent following the All-Star break.
News:Adam Henrique (groin) did not practice Monday, Bergen Record writer Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: The Devils will presumably refer to Adam Henrique as day-to-day, but it's difficult to be especially optimistic about his chances of playing Tuesday given that his groin injury is still sore.
News: General Manager Lou Lamoriello said that he expects Adam Henrique (undisclosed) to be ready to play next Tuesday against the Rangers, the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: The Devils are currently off until next Tuesday due to the All-Star Break, which gives Adam Henrique plenty of time to heal up.
News:Adam Henrique played 19:17 while winning 11-of-16 face-offs in Thursday's loss to Boston, his first game since missing two contests with a minor groin strain.
Analysis:Adam Henrique and the Devils could not manufacture much offense against the staunch Boston defense, but the rookie appeared comfortable in his return, despite minimal impact. Monitor him closely, as groin injuries can be tricky. He finished the game a minus-2 with no shots on goal.
News:Adam Henrique (groin) will play Thursday against the Bruins, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: With Adam Henrique, who has 34 points in 40 games to date back in the mix, Matias Tedenby is in line to be a healthy scratch Thursday.
News:Adam Henrique (groin) practiced with the Devils on Wednesday and is a game-time decision for Thursday's game against Boston, the Newark Star-Ledger's Rich Chere reports.
Analysis:Adam Henrique will participate in the morning skate and a decision will be made then for the upstart center's status. Groin injuries can be tricky, so it wouldn't be a surprise if New Jersey held him out for one or two more games. That said, it also wouldn't be a surprise if Henrique is on the ice for Thursday's tilt with the Bruins.
News:Adam Henrique (groin) will not play Tuesday against Winnipeg, the Newark Star-Ledger's Rich Chere reports. He did skate on Tuesday.
Analysis: This isn't too surprising, as Adam Henrique only skated on Monday, forgoing practice with his teammates. Groin injuries can be tricky, but Henrique should be considered day-to-day. New Jersey faces Boston on Thursday, so Henrique may get a practice in and play then.
News:Adam Henrique (groin) was not able to practice Monday, Bergen Record writer Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis:Adam Henrique was out on the ice before Monday's practice skating laps to test out his sore groin, but while he indicated that he was okay, his later absence clouds his availability for Tuesday's game against the Jets.
News:Adam Henrique was out on the ice before Monday's practice skating laps to test out his sore groin, Bergen Record writer Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis:Adam Henrique was heard declaring "I'm OK" as he returned to locker room, so Monday's skate is a positive indicator with regards to his availability for Tuesday's game against the Jets.
News:Adam Henrique (groin) will miss Saturday's game against Winnipeg, Bergen Record writer Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Apparently it wasn't a rest day for Adam Henrique when he missed Friday's practice, after all. It would be a surprise, in any case, if he were to miss Tuesday's rematch with the Jets.
News:Adam Henrique did not practice due to a rest day Friday and is expected to play against Winnipeg on Saturday, Bergen Record writer Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: We'll make note of it if Adam Henrique's situation turns for the worse prior to Saturday's game, but it appears as if his owners need not worry at the moment.
News:Adam Henrique had a short-handed goal, an assist and got into a fight with the Flames' Jarome Iginla in Tuesday's loss, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: The fight was certainly unexpected - Adam Henrique had two total PIM all season prior to Tuesday's tilt. Otherwise, it was yet another productive game for the rookie, who has goals in three straight and shorthanded goals in back-to-back games.
News:Adam Henrique recorded his second-straight two-point game with a shorthanded goal and an assist in Saturday's 3-1 victory over the Penguins.
Analysis: His surprising season continues. He has 12 goals and 20 assists in 38 games as a rookie this year. But what impresses us the most is the three shorthanded goals he's put in the net. It speaks volumes that the defensive-minded Devils are relying on a 20-year-old rookie on the PK and as its first-line center. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has been impressive this year but so has Adam Henrique. And it's the latter who could end up with the trophy. Use him well.
News:Adam Henrique snagged his eighth goal of the season in Friday's shootout win over Washington, his first goal in two games.
Analysis:Adam Henrique continues to produce consistently even if he is not scoring goals every night. The talented rookie has three goals in the last six games and three points in the last four. If you were lucky enough to grab him a month ago, you've been handsomely rewarded. Expect Henrique's name to circle around conversation for the Calder Trophy all season as he has found a niche centering Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise.
News:Adam Henrique posted two assists and a goal in Monday's 5-4 win over Tampa Bay, his first goal in three games.
Analysis:Adam Henrique and his linemates, Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise, combined for three goals and seven points in the win. Time has likely run out for you to grab Henrique for free, and owners that plucked him from waiver wire irrelevancy will be reluctant to part with their find. Henrique is establishing himself as one of the league's top rookies and has 23 points in 26 games.
News:Adam Henrique posted two assists in Thursday's shootout win over Ottawa, extending a points streak to seven games.
Analysis:Adam Henrique has nine points over that span with two goals and seven helpers and is clearly establishing himself as one of the league's top rookies. He skates with confidence and has been the bridge between the once distant New Jersey stars Zach Parise and Ilya Kovalchuk.
News:Adam Henrique scored a goal in Saturday's loss to Winnipeg. It extended his current point streak to five games and six points.
Analysis: He's quickly leaping into the discussion for the Calder trophy. He's playing on the Devils' top line with Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise, and is helping those two develop chemistry. And his performance last month -- five goals and 14 points -- was just two behind uber-rookie Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who drained six goals and 16 points. Get him on your roster if you can.
News:Adam Henrique factored in both New Jersey goals in Saturday's loss to the Islanders, grabbing a goal and an assist, giving him three points in the last two games.
Analysis:Adam Henrique's top line with Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise had a strong game points-wise and Henrique continues to establish himself as one of the league's rising young talents. Henrique has 14 points in 19 contests, most of which have come in the last three weeks. Snatch him up in keeper leagues and he is earning value in standard leagues as well.

Analysis: He plays with a maturity that belies his youth. Snap him up -- he's getting power play time and he's clearly got chemistry with Zach Parise.
News:Adam Henrique has three assists in the last two games and has nine of his season's 10 points in eight November games.
Analysis:Adam Henrique is one of the hottest rookies in the league this side of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. A former teammate of Edmonton's Taylor Hall in juniors, Henrique has been enjoying life on the Devils' top line with Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise, proving he can play in a variety of situations. He set up a short-handed goal in Wednesday's win over Buffalo by shielding the puck from two defenders and leaving the puck in the slot for Parise. Grab him now in keeper leagues and expect further production from this poised rookie.
News:Adam Henrique grabbed an assist and finished a plus-2 in the Devils' 4-3 loss to Boston Tuesday.
Analysis:Adam Henrique has been one of the hottest players in the league the last 10 days and found his name on the scoresheet even with being denied a goal. The assist snaps a brief two-game drought and his performance Tuesday puts his plus-minus rating at plus-1 on the season.
News:Adam Henrique has seven points in 10 games this season with four goals and two assist in the last six games.
Analysis:Adam Henrique is making a name for himself with two game-winning goals in each of the last two contests. Henrique seems to have found a home alongside Zach Parise and the Devils are liking what they see from him. Henrique, an OHL teammate of Taylor Hall, has been productive at every level of his career, so there is little reason to think he won't be in the NHL.
News:Adam Henrique scored twice in New Jersey's 3-2 win over Winnipeg on Saturday, including the overtime winner. He has three goals in the last two games.
Analysis:Adam Henrique's goals were almost identical as he blew by defenders in the neutral zone before beating Ondrej Pavelec to the glove side each time.

News:Adam Henrique potted his first NHL goal Thursday, taking a pass from Ilya Kovalchuk on a breakaway and putting it past the Flyers' Sergei Bobrovsky. He also assisted on a Zach Parise goal in the road shootout win.
Analysis:Adam Henrique has been rewarded for solid play with increasing ice time, and his 17:54 in this one was his highest mark of the season. He's clicked very well with new linemates Parise and Kovalchuk, recording three points in the two games he's skated with the stars.
News:Adam Henrique will center a line with Zach Parise and Ilya Kovalchuk in Wednesday's game against Toronto, according to the Begen Record's Tom Gulitti.
Analysis: This is a tremendous opportunity for the budding talent, as the Devils are determined to leave Parise and Kovalchuk together for the time being. Adam Henrique has just one assist this season in six games with 10 shots on goal. While he is in a great situation here, wait and see before picking him up in anything other than deep leagues that value younger talent. If you're in a pinch for a center Wednesday and can still grab him, go for it. If not, wait before Henrique cements a firmer role.
News: The Devils recalled Adam Henrique from AHL Albany on Saturday, the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis:Adam Henrique played in two games with the Devils earlier this season before being sent to Albany, but he should get a bigger opportunity this time around with fellow center Jacob Josefson likely out for a while with a broken clavicle.
News: With Jacob Josefson (broken clavicle) out indefinitely, Adam Henrique could be called up by New Jersey.
Analysis: There is no official word yet, but Adam Henrique is the obvious choice to replace Josefson. Henrique played the first three games of the season with the big club and is one of the team's few bright offensive prospects.
News: The Devils assigned Adam Henrique to AHL Albany on Friday, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: GM Lou Lamoriello noted that the move was made to get Adam Henrique extended ice time in a couple minor league games this weekend. It's not clear how long he will stay in the minors, but he will likely be among the top options should the Devils need to add another forward.
News:Adam Henrique will wear No. 14 with the Devils and play left wing on a line with Jacob Josefson and David Clarkson, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.
Analysis:Adam Henrique is a promising offensive prospect and posted 50 points during 70 AHL contests last season. The Devils were impressed with his performances during training camp and the injury to Travis Zajac (Achilles) opened up another forward spot. Don't be surprised if Henrique is used on the team's second power-play unit.
News:Adam Henrique remained with the Devils following a large round of roster cuts Monday, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: The Devils were serious when they gave Adam Henrique a long look during training camp. Now the question is what role Henrique will play, should he make the opening-day roster. He's an offensive center who saw time with Ilya Kovalchuk during training camp, and the injury to Travis Zajac (achilles) could open up a spot for Henrique to play alongside Kovy early on.
News: Ilya Kovalchuk has been impressed by the play of his teammate, Adam Henrique, according to the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti.
Analysis:Adam Henrique is receiving a longer-than-anticipated look during training camp with Travis Zajac sidelined until mid-November at the earliest. Henrique registered a 50-point campaign in the AHL last season and is one of the few dynamic offensive players in New Jersey's system. He scored in Friday's loss to the Islanders, but he's worth remembering in deep keeper leagues.
News:Adam Henrique feels more prepared for this season's training camp after a poor outing last year, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis:Adam Henrique was invited to the NHL's prospect camp along with a host of other talented youngsters. He was New Jersey's top AHL scorer last season with 25 goals and 50 points and, with Travis Zajac slated to be out until mid-November, there will be ample opportunity for Henrique to prove his worth to the NHL club. The Devils lack another scoring center and Henrique is versatile enough to play on the left wing as well. Bump him up a few spots in keeper leagues.
News: With Travis Zajac (achilles) out until November, Adam Henrique will have an opportunity to compete for a roster spot during training camp.
Analysis:Adam Henrique is one of the team's top offensive prospects and has shown himself to be a steady player during his junior career. He has an offensive upside and could get a run with the team's scoring lines in training camp. The injury to Zajac makes Henrique well worth a filer in keeper leagues, as the Devils are high on this young man.
