Before the New Jersey Devils took the ice for practice today, Adam Henrique was named NHL’s third star of the week.

After Henrique was named second star of the week during the previous weekly period, Henrique added 5 more goals in 3 games to continue his hot streak. Last week, the Devils went 2-1-0, winning decisive games against the Detroit Red Wings and Carolina Hurricanes. The one loss came at the hands of the same Detroit Red Wings after they took the back half of a home-and-home for the Devils.

Henrique now has 23 goals and 15 assists on the season. His 38 points sits in third place on the team behind Patrik Elias (42) and Jaromir Jagr (55).

Henrique’s 6-game goal streak has seen him score 9 times and has also reached a career high in goals for a season.

Adam Henrique was also missing from the team’s practice today which certainly had fans panicked. Luckily, once practice ended, Pete DeBoer confirmed that Henrique was simply resting for the day.

Henrique himself confirmed that he will play on Tuesday against the Philadelphia Flyers. The team traveled there this afternoon.

Tuomo Ruutu also said that he flew to Raleigh, NC to see his wife and daughter. His wife is due “any day” according to Ruutu through Gulitti for their second child.
