In addition to missing 10 games, Elias has recorded 26 points and a minus-13 rating, both of which put him on track for career worsts in both categories. Despite his dropoff in productivity, Elias has at least been able to avoid long scoring droughts. He's gone no more than five games without a point this season.

Elias scored his 400th career NHL goal in Friday's win over Toronto.

A big milestone for Elias, who has seven goals and 22 points in 47 games this season. At 38-years of age, Elias is no longer the 90-point producer he once was, but he's still capable of delivering respectable offensive totals. While he's on pace for just short of 40 points, Elias has collected nine points in his last 12 games, making him worth a look in some deeper leagues.

Elias (elbow) appears set to play Wednesday against the Kings, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Despite hyperextending his elbow in Monday's practice, Elias traveled with the team to Los Angeles and was a full participant in the team's morning skate. He's probably not completely recovered from the injury, but evidently, the Devils don't believe it's the type of ailment that will impact his performance too significantly.

Elias scored a goal, added a shorthanded assist, and grabbed an empty-net assist -- accounting for his 1,000th career point -- in Tuesday's win over Buffalo.

Elias has now tallied goals in consecutive games, adding some shine to what's been a truly awful season. Of course, he'll turn 39 this year, so he can be forgiven for not being that productive in the twilight of his career. Not everyone can be Jaromir Jagr.

Elias (illness) confirmed after the Devils' morning skate that he will be activated from IR and return to the lineup Friday versus the Canadiens, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

Elias has been skating for the last few days after he was cleared to rejoin the team when his mumps symptoms subsided. After taking part fully in the team's morning skate, he's expected to reclaim a spot on the second line, where he'll join Travis Zajac and Martin Havlat. Elias is regarded as one of the Devils' better offensive threats, but with just four goals, 13 points and a minus-16 rating over 29 games, he's not lived up to his end of the bargain.
