Mike Cammalleri wanted to cash in on the open market. Mission accomplished.
The New Jersey Devils signed the 32-year-old forward to a five-year, $25 million deal. Cammalleri spent the past two and a half seasons with Calgary and had 89 goals and 89 assists in 216 games with the Flames. He had been with Montreal and Los Angeles previously.
Cammalleri joins a Devils team in need of some extra offense. Jaromir Jagr, Patrik Elias, Travis Zajac and Adam Henrique led the way with the team last season and both Jagr and Elias aren’t exactly young anymore. Adding Cammalleri to that mix helps provide more punch to their top-six forwards and a guy who can score and distribute the puck.
