Mueller notched four assists in 31 games including playoffs in 2017-18, while averaging 16:43 of ice time.

The 2013 first-round pick has been searching for consistent playing time with San Jose, and while a collarbone injury limited his playing time this season, he still skated in New Jersey's last eight games. Unfortunately for Mueller, Andy Greene, Sami Vatanen, Damon Severson, Will Butcher and Ben Lovejoy are all likely returning next season, so New Jersey will boast a crowded blue line -- which will limit his minutes and opportunity for a power-play role.
