The Zajac brothers – Travis and Darcy – could find themselves on the same NHL team next season.
The New Jersey Devils signed the younger Zajac brother, Darcy, to a two-year, two-way deal, according to the American Hockey blog.
Travis Zajac is entering his eighth season with the Devils. In 2013, he scored seven goals and had 20 points in 48 games, as the Devils failed to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs.
Darcy Zajac, who turns 27 years of age in September, has spent parts of the last four years in the American Hockey League.
The last three seasons, he has played with the Albany Devils, but was not under contract with New Jersey.
In 2012-13, the right-handed shooting center scored nine goals and had 17 points in 67 regular season games with Albany.
