The New Jersey Devils re-signed center Adam Henrique to a six-year, $24 million deal on Monday.

The New Jersey Devils re-signed center Adam Henrique to a six-year, $24 million deal on Monday. 

This was confirmed by Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger, who quotes Henrique as saying the deal was a no-brainer as he loves New Jersey. 

"I had no problem signing a long-term deal. I've loved it in New Jersey so far. The organization has been great to me and my family. It's a place I want to stay and play in for a number of years, so the length was important to me." 

Chere points out negotiations between Henrique and the Devils were affected by the impending sale of the organization last month. Former team owner Jeff Vanderbeek eventually sold the team to Philadelphia 76ers owner Josh Harris and his co-owner David Blitzer. 

Once the Devils had new ownership in place, Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello had more freedom in signing Henrique. The latter says it felt good to finally have the matter resolved. 

"Yes. Once we knew (the sale of the team) was coming along to where it was going to be completed, that was important. Once it was finished there was a good feeling. I'm glad it was all resolved. I'm here for the future. That's why I wanted a long-term deal." 

Lamoriello clarifies it was the length of the contract which needed to be resolved, and felt the right decision was made in the end, per NorthJersey.com. 

"It was what the terms would be and what the length would be and what the right scenario would be as far as his future, what the right contract length is with the collective bargaining agreement. All of those things had to be really fair for both sides and I think we came to the right decision."

The 23-year-old Henrique, a native of Brantford, Ontario, was a third-round pick (82nd overall) in the 2008 NHL Draft. He had 11 goals in 42 games for the Devils in the 2012-13 season. 

He had 51 points the season before, a campaign which saw him scoring the winning overtime goal in Game 6 of the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals agains the New York Rangers. The win propelled New Jersey to the Stanley Cup Finals against the eventual champions Los Angeles Kings.
