Henrique to miss 4-6 weeks after thumb surgery

Adam Henrique, a Calder Trophy finalist last season, injured his left thumb in an American Hockey League game Sunday and is expected to miss four to six weeks after undergoing surgery on Thursday, according to Albany Devils general manager Chris Lamoriello.

Henrique, who had 51 points for the New Jersey Devils last season, injured the ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb in a game against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in Atlantic City, N.J.

Henrique has five goals and three assists in 16 games with the Albany Devils this season.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
