Henrique in NJ lineup, Janssen headed to Albany
Centerman Adam Henrique is back in the New Jersey lineup for Thursday's game against the New York Islanders after spending a couple months recovering from a thumb injury suffered while playing with Albany during the lockout.
New Jersey activated Henrique, who has been rehabbing in Newark. Wednesday, they placed right wing Cam Janssen on waivers, and he cleared Thursday at noon. Janssen was then loaned to Albany of the AHL.
Janssen has played 311 NHL games, showing three goals and eight assists, along with 750 penalty minutes.
Albany will play at Providence on Friday.
