Adam Henrique needs thumb surgery

New Jersey Devils center Adam Henrique will undergo surgery on his left thumb Thursday, the team's AHL affiliate announced in a statement Wednesday.

The 22-year-old Henrique, a 2012 Calder Memorial Trophy finalist, is expected to miss four to six weeks.

Henrique, who has five goals and three assists in 16 games for the Albany Devils, injured his hand during Sunday's game vs. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in Atlantic City, N.J.

A Brantford, Ontario native, Henrique scored 16 goals and 51 points as a rookie last season with the Devils.
