Devils' Michael Cammalleri: New Jersey risks loss of veteran

Cammalleri is an option for the Golden Knights since the Devils chose to expose him to the Vegas expansion franchise, theScore reports.

Cammalleri recently turned 35 years old and has two years remaining on a contract valued at $5 million annually. Once that expires, he'll be an unrestricted free agent. We suspect the Golden Knights will court several veterans in the expansion draft in order to be taken seriously in the the club's first year. Cammalleri is a journeyman of sorts -- 14 years of NHL service time split between the Kings, Flames, Habs and Devils -- and he seems like a good fit for Vegas based on his impressive totals with each of the aforementioned franchises. He's recorded 613 points (287 goals, 326 assists) in 840 career contests with a role on the man advantage every year of his illustrious career.
