Three Players Sign Two-Way Deals with the Devils

I’ve been fooling around with the auto-post feature on the site, so this was actually written around 1 PM earlier today and should get up a little bit after 6 PM tonight. Just something I wanted to try that might be of use later on, so this is more of a test.

Anyway, Amanda Stein took to the “Inside the Devils Blog” today to announce that New Jersey General Manager Tom Fitzgerald has announced the re-signing of three players to two-way contracts.

Those three players are Brett Seney, Binghamton Devils captain Ben Street and Josh Jacobs.

Seney, a forward who has played in 51 games at the NHL level in 2018-19 and two in 2019-20 according to Stein, signed a one-year, two-way contract that is worth $700,000 at the NHL level and $250,000 in the American Hockey League. Stein reports that he was Binghamton’s leading scorer with 19 goals, 25 assists and 44 points over 61 AHL games. The 19 goals scored were a career-high mark for him.

Street, who Stein notes was named captain of the B-Devils last season also signed a two-way, one-year deal which is worth $750,000 at the NHL level and $425,000 in the American League. Street was second on Binghamton in scoring, notching 15 goals and 27 assists equaling 42 points over 49 games. Both Seney and Street played a big part in the Binghamton Devils’ success last AHL season prior to the cancelation from an offensive standpoint.

Someone who was big in a defensive role was Josh Jacobs. The Binghamton blueliner signed a one-year, two-way contract worth $700,000 at the NHL level and $130,000 in the AHL. He has nine goals, 44 assists and 53 points in his AHL career noted Stein. She also said that while he has spent the bulk of his career in the AHL, playing 54 games there last year, for instance, he has played in two NHL games, suiting up for the New Jersey club in 2019-20.

Two Players Re-Sign With Devils

The Devils announced two re-signings of players to one-year, two-way contracts today via a press release.

Forward Brandon Baddock signed for $700,000 at the NHL level ($75,000 at the American Hockey League level). According to the press release put out by the team, Baddock, “(i)n his third professional season… set career highs in games played (67), goals (3), assists (7), points (10) and penalty minutes (154).” Those 154 penalty minutes led the AHL as well, according to the press release.

He was the Devils’ “sixth-round selection and 161st overall in the 2014 NHL Draft.” He has played the last two years with the Binghamton Devils of the AHL.

Defenseman Josh Jacobs signed for $700,000 at the NHL level and $85,000 at the AHL level. He played 69 games last year for Binghamton and had three goals, 10 assists for 13 points along with 42 penalty minutes. He did get some time with the big club, making his NHL debut on March 21, 2019 versus Boston at Prudential Center.

According to the press release, he was the Devils’ “second-round selection… 41st overall in the 2014 NHL Draft.”
