Newark, NJ - The New Jersey Devils today agreed to terms with forward Stefan Noesen on a one-year contract worth $1,725,000. Noesen had previously filed for salary arbitration. The announcement was made by Devils' Executive Vice President/General Manager Ray Shero.
"Since he has arrived in New Jersey, Stefan has played smart, competitive hockey and has scored timely goals," said Shero. "He's also a guy you can rely on to play in tough defensive situations and has really grown his all-around game."
Noesen, 25, just completed his first full season with the New Jersey Devils. This past season, he achieved career highs in games played (72), goals (13) and assists (14) all at the NHL level. The 6-1, 205lb., forward was claimed on waivers by New Jersey from Anaheim on January 25, 2017. Through 104 regular-season games with New Jersey, Noesen has scored 19 goals and 35 points. He made his Stanley Cup Playoff debut on April 12, 2018 and recorded his first career post-season goal on April 16 against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The Plano, TX native spent four seasons between the NHL and AHL. Through 116 AHL regular-season games, skating for Norfolk and San Diego, Noesen has 23 goals and 40 assists for 63 points to go along with 127 penalty minutes. In 118 NHL games with Anaheim and New Jersey, he has 21 goals and 37 points with 60 penalty minutes.
