Adam Henrique is close to returning from thumb surgery and Cam Janssen's presence on waivers supports the notion that he could be available as early as Thursday night.

"Adam Henrique is day-to-day and it just gives us some flexibility," Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said of placing Janssen on waivers. Lamoriello wouldn't say if Henrique would be ready to play on Thursday, as the team is taking a wait-and-see approach with his status, but Janssen's pending exit from the active roster opens a spot for his activation.
