Devils re-sign Henrique to multi-year contract
New Jersey Devils re-sign Adam Henrique to multi-year contract.

The New Jersey Devils have an important piece of their future back in the fold with the announcement Monday that restricted free agent Adam Henrique has signed a new multiyear contract.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed by the team, but media reports indicate it's for six years and $24 million.

Henrique, 23, scored 11 goals in 42 games last season.

"It was an exciting day," Henrique told The (Bergen) Record's Tom Gulitti. "My family and I are excited about it. It's something you've been working for for a long time. I'm extremely happy with what the deal is and how things are looking going forward."

A third-round pick (No. 82) in the 2008 NHL Draft, he was a Calder Trophy finalist in 2011-12 when he scored 16 goals and finished with 51 points in 74 games. Henrique then helped the Devils reach the 2012 Stanley Cup Final by scoring series-clinching overtime goals in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against the Florida Panthers and the Eastern Conference Final against the New York Rangers.

In 117 regular-season games, the 6-foot, 195-pound center has totaled 27 goals and 67 points. He has five goals and 13 points in 24 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
