Elias is dealing with a groin injury and is questionable to play Thursday against the Maple Leafs, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Elias traveled with the Devils to Toronto, but it's not certain whether he'll show enough improvement Thursday morning for coach Pete DeBoer to confidently insert him into his lineup. Stephen Gionta, Martin Havlat and Jaromir Jagr are also banged up, which could for the Devils to make some mass call-ups from AHL Albany.

Elias left Tuesday's game against the Penguins with an undisclosed injury, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.

Elias saw 5:09 worth of ice time in his seven shifts before leaving with the injury, which may have occurred when he was struck by teammate Scott Gomez's shot. The 38-year-old was one of three New Jersey forwards who left Tuesday with an injury, resulting in the team running just three lines by the third period. Expect the Devils to provide an update on his condition prior to Thursday's game against Toronto.

Elias potted the Devils' lone goal in Tuesday's loss to the Jets.

Elias has three points in his last two contests, but the goal was his first since Opening Night -- a 17-game drought. The aging forward is barely attempting more than a shot per game and isn't ideally suited for the primary scoring role the Devils have earmarked for him.

Elias picked up two assists in Saturday's loss to the Avalanche. The points are his first in five games and he has just four points in his last 10 games.

He picked up a point in each of his first three games and we all thought it was going to be just another strong season from the veteran. But he has six points -- all assists -- in his last 15 games and he hasn't potted a goal since opening night. We could be witnessing the start of the decline for this one-time 40-goal man. Bench him until he shows a bit more life.

Elias notched an assist in Thursday's loss to the Blues.

Since providing a point in each of his first three games, Elias' production has just about dried up. He's contributed no goals and four assists over the Devils' last 10 games, which has unsurprisingly coincided with the team's offensive downturn. With both Michael Cammelleri and Adam Henrique nursing injuries, the Devils are desperate for Elias to be a driving force for the offense, but he hasn't proven up to the task thus far.

Elias scored a third-period goal in Thursday's win over the Flyers.

Elias gave the Flyers a short-lived 4-3 lead, before Vincent Lecavalier answered for the tying score just 15 seconds later. At 38 years old, Elias is one of the elder statesmen of the Devils' aging forward corps, but he's still managed to stay relevant in deeper leagues the last few seasons. In addition to the goal, Elias finished with a two penalty minutes, eight faceoff wins, and a plus-2 rating over his 15:55 of ice time.
