The New Jersey Devils yesterday announced that they had re-signed Adam Henrique on a six year contract at $24 million according to NHL.com

Terms of the deal were not disclosed by the team, but media reports indicate it’s for six years and $24 million.

Henrique, 23, scored 11 goals in 42 games last season.

“It was an exciting day,” Henrique told The (Bergen) Record’s Tom Gulitti. “My family and I are excited about it. It’s something you’ve been working for for a long time. I’m extremely happy with what the deal is and how things are looking going forward.”

Henrique is a player who has seen his development continue while playing an important role in the Devils current playoff success.

At 23 if he continues to develop at his current rate this contract will be a great investment in the future. It is always risky signing young players to substantial period of time to justify the cap. I think the Devils will look back in a few years and talk about a great bit of business by taking that risk on Henrique.
