Elias to return vs. Canucks

October, 24, 2013
Patrik Elias is slated to return Thursday for the Devils as they face the Vancouver Canucks. The veteran forward missed the past two games with the flu.

Elias is slated to rejoin fellow Czech legend Jaromir Jagr on the team's first line, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.

Devils captain Bryce Salvador remains on bereavement leave because of a death in the family.

Cory Schneider, who appears to have won the starting goaltender job, will be between the pipes when they host the Canucks.
