The New Jersey Devils have signed free agent left wing Luke Gazdic and re-signed restricted free agent center Jacob Josefson.

General manager Ray Shero announced the moves on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old Josefson got a one-year, $1.1 million contract and Gazdic signed a one-year, two-way contract worth $700,000.

Gazdic spent the last three seasons with the Edmonton Oilers. Last season, the 26-year-old only played in 29 games and had one goal.

So far in his six-year career with New Jersey, Josefson has 17 goals and 33 assists in 238 games. Last season for the Devils, Josefson recorded career highs with 10 assists and 14 points.

Josefson joins defenseman Jon Merrill and forwards Beau Bennett and Devante Smith-Pelley as players who have recently re-signed with the Devils.
