Devils’ Patrik Elias to make season debut vs. Blue Jackets

Wednesday November 25th, 2015

New Jersey Devils forward Patrik Elias will make his season debut Wednesday after being activated from injured reserve.

Elias, 39, missed the first 20 games of the season recovering from a right knee injury. The Devils host the Columbus Blue Jackets Wednesday night, and the franchise’s all-time leader in goals and assists will return to the ice.

Sportsnet reported Elias skated on a line with Jacob Josefson and Stefan Matteau at practice Wednesday afternoon.

The Devils are 11–8–1 and in fourth place in the Metropolitan Division.
