Goaltender Martin Brodeur is back at practice with the Devils this morning at Prudential Center after being in Montreal siince Thursday because of the death of his father Denis.

Patrik Elias is also back at practice today after resting since Tuesday because of “soreness.” He’s centering a line with Ryane Clowe and Damien Brunner on his wings.

Adam Henrique appears to have moved to left wing on a line with Andrei Loktionov at center and Dainius Zubrus at right wing. Right wing Jaromir Jagr who did not play in the preseason because of a sore back/left hip) is skating on the fifth line with Mattias Tedenby and Jacob Josefson.

Jagr’s position on the extra line today might indicate they intend to place him on injured reserve to start the season. He did however work on the first power play unit later in the practice (the first time he’s worked on the power play). The power play units are listed below.

All players still on the Devils roster other than right wing Cam Janssen (on waivers) is on the ice for today’s practice.

NHL teams have to be down to the 23-player roster limit by 5 p.m. today (it’s still listed on the NHL’ critical dates calendar at 3 p.m. but the league now says it was changed to 5 p.m.). The Devils currently stand at 26 players on their roster. The only players still on the roster eligible to be sent down today are Janssen (assuming he isn’t claimed off waivers at noon today) and defenseman Adam Larsson (does not require waivers to be sent down).

The Devils had Sunday off and resume preparations today for their regular season opener on Thursday night in Pittsburgh.
