New Jersey Devils News


The Devils have signed Dmitry Kulikov to a one-year deal worth $1.15 million.

Kulikov had two goals and eight assists (10 points) in 51 game with the Jets last season. Kulikov topped 100 huts for the sixth time in his 11-year career and will bring a physical element to the Devils blueline. His one-year deal buys Ty Smith an extra year of development before he likely becomes a full-time NHLer in 2022.

The Devils have signed Corey Crawford to a two-year deal worth $7.8 million ($3.9M AAV).

Crawford has had concussion issues recently in recent years but has been one of the most consistent goalies in the league. From 2013-to-2018, Crawford ranked third in the NHL in SV% (.922) and 4th in GAA (2.31). However, those numbers have dropped to t-18th in SV% (.913) and t-31 in GAA (2.85) over the last two seasons. The good news for Crawford is that he's leaving the team that gave up the most Scoring Chances Against last year. The bad news, is that he signed with the team that gave up there third-most.

The Devils have acquired Ryan Murray from the Blue Jackets for a 2021 fifth-round pick.

Murray has one-year left with a $4.6M cap-hit and is a cheap, low-risk addition for the Devils. The Blue Jackets were dumping salary left and right and the oft-injured Murray was a logical choice. The 27-year-old was the No.2 overall pick in 2012 but has not played more than 60 games in the last four years. He's averaged 46.8 games played with 1.5 goals and 13.8 assists (15.3 points) over that stretch.

Crawford (Covid-19) entered the bubble with his team on Sunday.

Crawford missed the start of Phase 3 training camp and it was revealed that absence was because the goaltender tested positive for Covid-19. On Sunday, he was included on the Blackhawks' playoff roster and travelled to Edmonton with the team. Head coach Jeremy Colliton said the team is "trying to get [Crawford] up to speed as quick as we can." It's unclear whether or not Crawford will be ready to start Wednesday's exhibition game vs. the Blues or Game 1 vs. the Oilers on Saturday.
