Do not be surprised if the New Jersey Devils sign Lee Stempniak to a contract.

The forward was with the Devils on a PTO and it is starting to look like he will stick with the club. "Lee's done a good job," coach John Hynes said. "He came in on a tryout. Really no different than any other player, he was trying to make an impression and be able to earn a job, whether it's with us or any other team in the league. He's another guy that's showed why he's been in the NHL quite a bit. There is a lot of consistency to his game. Throughout camp it didn't matter where we played him. A lot of times he forced us, which is what you want players to do, to put him in big time role or force a tough decision on whether he deserves to be on the team or not. And he certainly did that." Look for a 15 goal, 30 point season from Stempniak if he sticks.

I don't think we ever fully closed the door on it, but at this point, if I had to guess, it doesn't look too promising." He's currently in Toronto to take part in the BioSteel Camp, while waiting for his next NHL contract. Stempniak had 15 goals and 28 points in 71 games last season with the Rangers and Jets.
