With free agency wide open as of July 1, the New Jersey Devils have signed left winger Mike Cammalleri.
Cammellari spent his last two season as the alternate captain of the Calgary Flames. According to reports, the deal with Cammalleri is for 5 years and worth $25 million.
In the 2013-2014 season, the 32-year-old forward had 26 goals and 45 points. Before signing with Calgary, Cammalleri spent five season with the LA King
In addition, the Devils have signed forward Martin Havlat to a one-year, $1.5 million deal. Havlat scored 22 goals in the 2013-2014 season with the San Jose Sharks. Because of a pelvic injury, he played only 48 games last season but is said to be healthy now.
Long-time Devil Patrik Elias is excited about the signing of one of his close friends. “I hope he can be the player that he was, and I believe I can help him do that,” Elias said on Twitter.
The day before free agency opened up, the Devils announced that they would use their compliance buyout on Anton Volchenkov, which opened up cap space for New Jersey.
While the Devils seem to be done for the day, President/General Manager Lou Lamoriello said they will look to sign a veteran goaltender to backup Cory Schneider.
