• Gomez Signs PTO With Blues

    News: Scott Gomez accepted a professional tryout offer with the Blues on Thursday, Andy Strickland of FOX Sports Midwest reports.
    Analysis: After failing to garner a contract in free agency for the second straight offseason, Scott Gomez will again head to training camp on a PTO, as he did last season in New Jersey. Though he wasn't able to crack the Devils' Opening Night roster, he continued to work out with the team after the tryout period ended and was eventually signed to the team when injuries opened up an opportunity in late November. Gomez would end the season as one of the more productive contributors on the offensively challenged Devils, finishing third on the team with 34 points. The Blues boast a far deeper roster of forward talent, but with the news surfacing after Gomez's signing that Patrik Berglund would miss at least four months following shoulder surgery, an opening on the third line could exist for the 35-year-old.
  • Gomez Will Not Return To Devils Next Season

However, someone will likely take a chance on the veteran forward, as he has been able to remain relatively productive even as he has gotten up there in age. He managed to tally 34 points in 58 games with the Devils in 2014-15, and can still serve as a valuable offensive contributor when healthy.
