Hamilton signed a seven-year, $63 million contract with the Devils on Wednesday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

Hamilton has been one of the best offensively minded defenseman in the league for quite some time, but he's taken his production to the next level over the past two seasons, racking up 24 goals, 82 points, 350 shots on net and a plus-50 rating while averaging 22:58 of ice time through 102 contests with Carolina. The 28-year-old righty will skate on New Jersey's top pairing and first power-play unit in 2021-22, and although he may not produce at the same rate he's displayed with the Hurricanes over the past two campaigns, he'll still be near the top of the league in points scored among defensemen, making him a highly desirable fantasy asset.
