The Devils will retire Patrik Elias' No. 26 during a pregame ceremony on Feb. 24, the team announced Wednesday.
Elias underwent knee surgery prior to last season and looked to make a comeback bid to the ice, but decided to hang up his skates this March. He did not suit up during any game last year.
A two-time Stanley Cup winner, Elias finished with 408 goals and 617 assists, both of which are Devils records. During 2015-16, a season that saw him play in only 15 games, the forward, finished with eight points.
Elias also excelled on the world stage, notching 18 goals and 15 points during his career in international play.
