Elias said he's happy to remain in New Jersey, which has been his home for his entire 1,208 game NHL career. The 38-year-old forward has another year left on his contract and the trade speculation surrounding him will likely be more intense next season if the Devils once again fail to make the playoffs.

Patrik Elias was the only goal scorer for New Jersey in a 2-1 shootout win over Buffalo Tuesday night.

The ninth of the season for the veteran winger came on a first period power play and was assisted by Marek Zidlicky and Adam Henrique. Elias's best day are certainly behind him and you can probably do better for the bottom of your roster.

Patrik Elias scored the New Jersey Devils' only goal in a 2-1 loss to the visiting Edmonton Oilers Monday night.

The veteran all-star found the net at 5:47 of the first period, giving the Devils a 1-0 lead, but the team could only muster up 14 shots on Edmonton goalie Ben Scrivens in an utterly dismal performance for the home team. Losing to the lowly Oilers is bad but managing only 14 shots on net against them is inexcusable.

New Jersey veteran Patrik Elias scored his 400th NHL goal in the Devils' 4-1 win against the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs Friday night.

Elias became the 91st player in NHL history to reach 400 goals when he scored 1:23 into the second period to bump the Devils' lead to 2-0. Travis Zajac set up the historic goal by skating into the left circle and passing to Elias in the high slot. Elias, 38, received a standing ovation from the New Jersey crowd. The goal was the seventh of the season for Elias. Also scoring for the Devils Tuomo Ruutu (sixth), Steve Bernier (ninth) and Jaromir Jagr (11th). The Devils won their third game in a row, their longest win streak this season.

Patrik Elias got two assists in what might be his last All-Star appearance.

Elias, 38, was playing in his fourth All-Star Game. Over the course of his career he's scored a goal and seven points during the competition. He has six goals and 20 points in 37 contests, which aren't exactly All-Star numbers, but the NHL picks at least one player from each team and the Devils didn't provide the league with a great pool to choose from.

Patrik Elias won't be upset if he's the last player picked in the NHL All-Star draft.

"It is what it is," Elias said. "It's good for the fans. It's fine. The draft is the draft. I don't care where I'm picked. I'm just happy to be there." Elias is looking to make the most of what might be his last appearance in an All-Star Game. At the age of 38, he has six goals and 20 points in 37 contests this season.

Patrik Elias hyperextended his elbow during Monday's practice.

Elias' elbow is "pretty sore" so he's not sure if he'll play on Wednesday. He has six goals and 18 points in 34 contests in 2014-15.
Jan 12 - 2:54 PM

Patrik Elias will be the lone representative from the New Jersey Devils at the All-Star Game.

It will be the fourth time that Elias has been at the game, which will be held this year in Columbus. It has been a big week for Elias as he also hit the 1,000th career point mark on Tuesday.
Jan 11 - 9:41 AM

In addition to reaching the 1,000-point mark on Tuesday, Patrik Elias also recorded his 600th and 601st assists.

Elias is the 79th member of the 600 assists club. "Patrik has been a very loyal Devil," Devils GM and interim coach Lou Lamoriello said. "(He was) drafted, he was a free agent on several occasions and decided to stay. It's just great to have him. Without question he will retire, in my opinion, as a Hall of Famer." At the age of 38, Elias has six goals and 17 points in 32 contests in 2014-15.
Jan 7 - 9:04 AM

Patrik Elias recorded a goal and two assists in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Sabres, allowing him to reach 1,000 for his career.

The veteran winger has had an illustrious career and although he has struggled at times this season, he has been hot of late with goals in three of his last five outings. Jordin Tootoo, Travis Zajac and Michael Cammalleri also scored for the Devils in the victory.
Jan 6 - 9:53 PM

Patrik Elias (mumps) is ready to return to the Devils' lineup.

Elias missed four straight games due to the disease. It's believed, but not yet confirmed, that Mike Sislo has been returned to the AHL. It would make sense seeing as Elias will likely take the place Sislo has been occupying in the lineup. Elias has four goals and 13 points in 29 games in 2014-15.
Jan 2 - 11:09 AM

The New Jersey Devils have placed Patrik Elias (mumps) on the injured reserve list.

This is just an FYI as the move is presumably retroactive Dec. 20 and Elias wasn't expected to play on Saturday anyways. In other words, the fact that Elias is on the injured reserve list doesn't mean that he is guarantee to miss more time than previously anticipated.
Fri, Dec 26, 2014 06:35:00 PM

Patrik Elias has tested positive for the mumps.

Elias missed Tuesday's game due to the disease and he shouldn't be expected to play on Saturday. It's hard to say what impact this will have the team's upcoming lines as Peter DeBoer's firing means that new unit combinations might be coming anyways.
