NEWARK, N.J. - Defenceman Cory Murphy has signed a two-way contract with the New Jersey Devils.

Contract terms were not disclosed on Friday but Murphy's salary will be determined by whether he plays for the Devils or one of their minor league affiliates.

Murphy split last season with Florida, Rochester in the AHL and Tampa Bay. He had five goals and 11 assists in 32 NHL games. He was claimed off re-entry waivers by the Lightning in January after starting the season with the Panthers.

Murphy, who spent six seasons playing in Europe, added two goals and four assists in five AHL appearances.

Quote of the Day

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
