Until Adam Henrique recovers from left thumb surgery look for Patrik Elias to center the Devils' second line.
Henrique is due back at the end of January. Elias has played both wing and center in his career. However, as a second line pivot there is no chance he will be on the ice at the same time Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk are. He's slightly more valuable as a winger. Bear that in mind on draft day.
