The New Jersey Devils have activated left wing Patrik Elias from the injured reserve (Devils, Nov. 25).
Elias, 39, suffered a right knee injury during training camp and has not played yet this season.
"You hear that all the time (from) lots of guys who get back from a layoff," Elias said to reporters on Wednesday. "I've just got to simplify the game for me and try to work myself back into not necessarily shape but more of the rhythm of playing the game obviously, having that many bodies out there. So, I'm looking forward to it."
Devils head coach John Hynes said Elias will play with the third line on Wednesday night.
