Henrique is currently rehabilitating from surgery on his left thumb to reattach a torn ulnar collateral ligament. He originally sustained the injury while playing for the Devils’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Albany Devils, on Nov. 28.
The 22-year-old is working out and going to therapy everyday in order to improve the motion and strength in the thumb. As of Friday, he hasn’t started skating but is expecting to return to the ice either next week or the week after.
