The Devils have re-signed left wing Jay Pandolfo and defenseman Bryce Salvador, the team announced this morning.
Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello also announced that they have passed on the option on Sergei Brylin's contract for $1.52 million. Lamoriello did not rule out signing Brylin at a later date, but said Brylin will become an unrestricted free agent at noon. Arron Asham will also become an UFA.
The team also re-signed David Clarkson, who would have been a restricted free agent and Barry Tallackson, a potential Group VI UFA, and signed draft picks Matt Halischuk (2007) and Vladimir Zharkov (2006).
Lamorello said the decision came down between Pandolfo and Brylin. "It was a very difficult situation," Lamoriello said.
Salvador received a a four-year contract at $2.9 million per season. His deal does not include a no-movement clause of any kind. I don't have details on Pandolfo's deal, yet.
I'll give updates and more detail when I acquire them.
