Elias not traveling with Devils to Columbus
New Jersey Devils forward Patrik Elias will reportedly miss his second straight game on Tuesday against the Columbus Blue Jackets due to an illness.

New Jersey Devils forward Patrik Elias will reportedly miss his second straight game on Tuesday against the Columbus Blue Jackets due to an illness.

Elias was also sidelined on Saturday with a case of the flu in New Jersey's victory against the New York Rangers.

Devils coach Peter DeBoer told Tom Gulitti of The (Bergen) Record on Monday that Elias wouldn't be traveling with the team to Columbus.

"I'm not sure what it is, but obviously it's more significant than just a flu," DeBoer said.

Elias has two goals and four points in seven games this season.

Quote of the Day

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
