Free Agent

The Stars have acquired Ben Lovejoy from the Devils for Connor Carrick and a 2019 third-round pick.

Lovejoy is a defensive-defenseman with pretty good size and excellent mobility but really doesn’t bring any offence to the table. Lovejoy has just two goals and five assists (seven points) in 51 games this season. He has also picked up 70 shots, 59 hits and 77 blocked shots along the way. He provides the Stars with some added depth and will likely play the right-side on the Stars third-pair.

The Devils have signed Ben Lovejoy to a three-year deal worth $7.98 million ($2.666M AAV).

Lovejoy, 32, is a big blueliner (6’2” / 205 lbs) who moves better than his frame would suggest. However, he has never been a big point producer, carrying a career-high of 18 points (2013-14) into free agency. After the Ducks traded Adam Larsson to the Oilers, they needed to add a defenseman and the Lovejoy signing addresses that need.

The Penguins have acquired Ben Lovejoy from the Ducks for Simon Despres.

Lovejoy, 31, does everything pretty well, but does nothing great. He returns to the team that he started his career with. He had four goals and 21 assists (25 points) in 98 games with the Penguins from 2008-13. This season he has 11 points (1G / 10A) in 40 games with the Ducks. He should fill Despres spot on the Penguins third pair.
