Henrique staying on the wing?
By Doug McIntyre
Adam Henrique is a center.
It says so right here, on the New Jersey Devils official website, and although Peter DeBoer played Henrique at left wing in Thursday's overtime loss to the New York Islanders -- the youngster's first game this year after undergoing surgery to repair an injured thumb -- the coach insisted afterward that he sees Henrique staying in the middle.
Yet the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports that Henrique was back on the left during the team's Friday practice, skating alongside Travis Zajac and IlyaKovalchuk on the Devils top line. Expect him to stay there when New Jersey visits the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday.
