      Devils' Tyler Kennedy: Inks one-year, two-way deal with NJ

      Kennedy has a signed a one-year, two-way contract valued at $600,000 for the NHL level, Rich Chere of The Star-Ledger reports. Kennedy, who has largely been a part-time player in the NHL, reportedly will bank $200,000 if he ends up in the AHL. The Devils evidently felt like he was worth taking a chance on after bringing him aboard on a professional tryout contract Nov. 18. He has 199 points in 477 career games with the Penguins, Islanders and Sharks.

      Devils' Tyler Kennedy: Signs PTO with Devils

      Kennedy signed a professional tryout contract with the Devils on Wednesday. Kennedy signed a professional tryout contract with the Devils in September, but wasn't able to secure a spot on the team's 23-man roster in training camp. With Tuomo Ruutu (foot) and Patrik Elias (knee) both still on injured reserve, New Jersey could use some additional depth at forward. Kennedy, who tallied 14 points in 38 NHL games last season, will join the Devils in Calgary on Wednesday for practice.

    • Dealing with personal matter

      News: Tyler Kennedy (personal) will be away from the team for the next couple of days and the team is unsure whether he'll be back for Friday's preseason game, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
      Analysis: Tyler Kennedy is fighting for a roster spot after signing a PTO earlier in September. It's unknown what the personal matter is, but Kennedy will need to get back on the ice if he wants to make the team. He had 14 points in 38 NHL games last season, split between the Sharks and the Islanders and is a hard-nosed grinder whose value comes not from the points he scores, but for his willingness to forecheck and scrap in the corners.
    • Devils Sign Kennedy To PTO

      News: Tyler Kennedy signed a professional tryout contract with the Devils on Wednesday, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
      Analysis: Tyler Kennedy was unable to land a guaranteed contract in free agency this summer, but a tryout offer with a forward-bereft club like the Devils is a nice consolation prize, as the 29-year-old stands a good chance of cracking the 23-man roster. The winger didn't provide much noteworthy production during his time with the Sharks and Islanders (six goals, eight assists in 38 games) last season, but his familiarity with Devils GM Ray Shero during his time in Pittsburgh should work in his favor. Expect Kennedy to vie for a role on New Jersey's third or fourth line.
