Beau Bennett is thrilled about his chance to play with the New Jersey Devils.
Bennett was picked up by the Devils in a trade with the Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins at the Entry Draft and the Devils re-signed him to a one-year deal worth $725,000. The oft-injured forward has always been highly regarded but just when he makes some headway, it seems like he gets hurt. He has just 16 goals and 45 points in 129 games in four NHL seasons and needs to stay healthy one season to show what he is capable of doing. He had 12 points in 33 games last season.

The New Jersey Devils have re-signed Beau Bennett to a one-year/$725,000 contract.

Bennett was dealt from the Penguins at the Entry Draft but the Devils did not give him a qualifying offer. But that did not matter as Bennett re-signed and was given a one-way contract. Bennett is a goal scorer but he has been injury-prone of late and as a result he has not been a fantasy target in pools. That could change next season as he has the capability to score 20-25 goals, if, and that's a big if, he can remain healthy.

Beau Bennett didn't get a qualifying offer from the New Jersey Devils.

The Devils still hope to sign Bennett before he becomes an unrestricted free agent on Friday. New Jersey sent a third-round pick (No. 77 overall) to Pittsburgh to acquire him at the draft.

The New Jersey Devils acquired Beau Bennett from the Penguins in exchange for the 77th overal pick in the 2016 entry draft.

The Penguins selected defenseman Connor Hall with the pick. Bennett, who was a huge disappointment the last few seasons in Pittsburgh, remains an intriguing project. Devils' GM Ray Shero knows Bennett well as he was involved in drafting him while in Pittsburgh. It will be interesting to see whether New Jersey can coax more than the 12 points (in 33 games) out of Bennett this upcoming season. The Devils have had recent success in reviving the career of Kyle Palmieri.

Beau Bennett could be an option for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final.

He logged just 11:18 of ice time in his return from a shoulder injury in Game 5 against Tampa Bay. "If I'm slotted in there, I've got to be able to make a contribution right away," Bennett said. "I think I was maybe playing a little too cautious my first time around there." It was his first appearance since April 5 during the regular season. Bennett may get a chance to fill in for Bryan Rust, who was injured on Monday.
