Devils Sign 12 Players, Mostly Minor Leaguers
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Goaltender Maxime Clermont and NHL veteran Stephane Veilleux were among 12 players signed by the New Jersey Devils on Monday.
Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello did not disclose any contract terms in making the announcement. Most of the players will play in the minor leagues this season.
Also signed were defenseman Peter Harrold and nine other forwards — Matt Anderson, Bryan Haczyk, Brad Mills, Nathan Perkovich, Tim Sestito, Myles Stoesz, Joseph Whitney, Chad Wiseman and Steve Zalewski.
Haczyk, Perkovich, Stoesz and Whitney were signed to AHL contracts.
Of the group only Sestito and Mills saw NHL action with the Devils last season. Sestito had two assists in 36 games, while Mills had a goal in four games.
