Person familiar with the situation tells AP: Devils and Clowe agreed to $24.25M, 5-year deal

A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that the New Jersey Devils and forward Ryane Clowe have agreed to a $24.25 million, five-year contract.

The person spoke Friday on the condition of anonymity because the agreement had not yet been announced.

San Jose traded Clowe in April to the Rangers and he had three goals and five assist over 12 games during the shortened regular season. He was limited to just two playoff games with New York because a suspected concussion. Former Rangers coach John Tortorella said Clowe was New York's version of Bruins hard-hitter forward Milan Lucic.

The 30-year-old Clowe has 104 goals and 279 points in his career. Two years ago, he had career highs with 24 goals and 62 points.

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
