Devils Place Elias On IR
The New Jersey Devils placed Patrik Elias on the injured reserve Monday, but that doesn?t guarantee that he won?t play in the 2013-14 opener, according to the Bergen Record?s Tom Gulitti and the Newark Star-Ledger?s Rich Chere.
Elias told Chere that his groin injury won?t stop him from suiting up on Thursday.
?The injury is gone,? Elias said. ?I?ll be fine.?
