Devils aim to sign Jordin Tootoo

by Eric Marin / New Jersey Devils

UPDATE: Forwards Steve Bernier and Cam Janssen, and defenseman Peter Harrold have all cleared waivers.

The Devils’ 2014-15 roster is set to be released today at 5 p.m., general manager Lou Lamoriello said today.

Lamoriello updated the status of forwards of Steve Bernier and Cam Janssen, neither of whom was at practice. Both would be assigned to Albany (AHL) if they cleared noon waivers.

Unsigned free agent Jordin Tootoo skated on a line with Tuomo Ruutu and Stephen Gionta and has already had preliminary contract talks with the Devils.

"We will be sitting down with Tootoo some time today," Lamoriello said.

The GM had high praise for Scott Gomez’s preseason, but indicated there’s no room on the roster right now for the ex-Devil.

"Scotty has had a tremendous camp,” Lamoriello said. "He’s in great shape, has shown he can still play."

Lamoriello has spoken to Gomez and recommended that he remain with the team and practice as a taxi squad player.

Waived defenseman Peter Harrold participated in practice, though Lamoriello did not announce any decision on his status if he were to clear waivers.
