On Nov. 30, the New Jersey Devils and Anaheim Ducks made a substantial in-season trade that moved center Adam Henrique west and sent defenseman Sami Vatanen east.
Three weeks later, Henrique returns to the Prudential Center as the Ducks (14-11-8) play the Devils (18-9-5) on Monday night for the first time since the trade.
"I'm looking forward to it," Henrique said after practice Sunday in New Jersey. "Honestly, I'm going to try to not think about all that all day, but it'll be hard not to. I'm sure it will be emotional."
