ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- New Jersey Devils center Adam Henrique is going to have a procedure to repair a ligament in his left thumb after being hurt playing for the team's AHL affiliate.

Albany Devils general manager Chris Lamoriello said Wednesday that Henrique will have a procedure on his ulmar collateral ligament Thursday. He is expected to be sidelined up to six weeks.

Henrique, assigned the Devils' top minor league team at the beginning of the NHL lockout, was injured in Sunday's game against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in Atlantic City, N.J.

The 22-year-old had 16 goals and 35 assists as a rookie last season. He added five goals and eight assists in the Devils' run to the Stanley Cup Finals, including three game-winning goals. The biggest was his overtime tally that eliminated the New York Rangers in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals.
