Adam Henrique re-signs with Devils on multiyear deal
The Devils took care of an important piece of offseason business, re-signing Adam Henrique to a multiyear extension on Monday.
According to Sportsnet's Shawn McKenzie, the new deal is pretty big; six years and $24 million.
Henrique just finished up his entry-level deal with the Devils this past season and showed them a lot to look forward to, necessitating re-signing him to a longer deal. As a rookie in 2011-12, Henrique was a Calder Trophy finalist with 16 goals and 35 assists. He was just as big in the playoffs, scoring a couple of huge goals including a 2OT tally in Game 7 against the Panthers to get the Devils onto the next round.
This past season Henrique's total points took a dip as he had 11 goals with just 5 assists in 42 games. But for a team that was lacking offense last season and then lost key players in Ilya Kovalchuk and David Clarkson this summer, not only was getting Henrique back of the utmost importance, but seeing him take the next step and filling a big role in New Jersey.
