Devils sign veteran Sykora to 1-year deal
NEWARK, N.J. (AP)
The 34-year-old forward said after practice Wednesday that he was happy to be rejoining the team that had selected him in the 1995 draft.
New Jersey coach Peter DeBoer believes Sykora can help the Devils address their offensive struggles. The right wing has 302 goals and 375 assists in 935 NHL games.
The Devils made salary cap room for Sykora on Tuesday by trading center David Steckel to the Toronto Maple Leafs for a fourth-round pick in 2012.
