Larsson Wathc

It'll be a big night for the future of the Devils(and for guys named Adam, too) on Thursday when Adam Henrique and Adam Larsson get their first crack at playing this season. Henrique's been sidelined for two months following hand surgery. He, like Larsson, began the lockout playing with Albany of the AHL before getting hurt during a game in November.

"I thought we did a great job as a group of everyone stepping up while he was out," coach Pete DeBoer said Thursday, "but hes a big part of our team obviously and you can start to slot people in the right spots when hes in the lineup."

While Henrique will likely eventually slot in on the second line between Patrik Elias and David Clarkson, he'll start Thursday's game on the fourth unit, skating with Krys Barch and former Albany teammate Matt Anderson. Don't expect that to stick though.
