The New Jersey Devils have re-upped with winger Mike Sislo.
Sislo, 26, has agreed to a two-year, two-way pact worth $562,500 annually at the NHL level, per the Star-Ledger. An undrafted free agent out of New Hampshire, Sislo has spent the majority of his professional career in AHL Albany but made his big-league debut last year, appearing in 14 games for New Jersey while averaging 8:51 TOI per game.
A quality scorer at the AHL level — he led Albany with 23 goals in 59 games last year — Sislo could be in line for a steadier role with the Devils next year, as the club has yet to reach new deals with a number of veteran bottom-six forwards, including Ryan Carter, Steve Bernier and Stephen Gionta.
