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.

Devils Sign Joe Morrow

The Devils announced today that they have signed former Winnipeg Jet, Boston Bruin and Montreal Canadien Joe Morrow to a one-year, two-way contract. The contract is worth $700,000 at the NHL level and $250,000 at the AHL level with $300,000 guaranteed.

Morrow was immediately put on waivers by the team and will report to the Binghamton Devils tomorrow pending clearing waivers at 12 PM tomorrow.

Morrow, a 26-year-old defenseman, played for Winnipeg last season and had his best year (according to the press release) in 2017-18 with the Jets. That season, he tallied six goals and ten assists (16 points) and registered 26 penalty minutes. He also played in six playoff games for the Jets, as they went to the Western Conference Final, ultimately losing to Vegas. His lone goal in that playoff was the go-ahead goal in the current iteration of the Jets’ first playoff win (April 11, 2018 against the Minnesota Wild) according to the press release.

He has appeared in 162 career NHL games (2014 to 2019) with Winnipeg, Boston and Montreal. The Edmonton-native’s career totals are nine goals, 23 assists (32 points) to go with 62 career penalty minutes.

At the AHL level, he has played in 158 career games with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, Texas Stars and Providence Bruins. There he has 15 goals and 46 assists (61 points) and 83 penalty minutes.

The 6-foot, 195-pound left-shooting journeyman was the Penguins’ first pick (23rd overall) in the 2011 Draft. He played junior hockey in the Western Hockey League with the Portland Winterhawks from 2008 to 2012.
