Bobby Farnham wants to return to the Devils next season.

Farnham is slated to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season and is not sure the Devils want him back."I'd love to come back, but at the end of the season I'll find out," Farnham said. "I'd like to think I made enough of an impact to come back. I've enjoyed my time here and appreciated the opportunity. I would love to come back if the opportunity presented itself. But, to be honest, you never really know how the chips will fall. You never really know what people want until it comes down to that time. I'm just going to be patient and take it as it comes." The rugged winger was only known for his penalty minute totals before this season but Farnham has potted eight goals in a bottom-six role.

Bobby Farnham will return to Pittsburgh for the first time since being placed on waivers October 25.

Farnham has been a revelation to the Devils since acquiring him off waivers as he has seven goals and eight points in 28 games with 49 penalty minutes.

Maybe a mixed reaction," Farnham said with a big smile when asked how the crowd in Pittsburgh would react to him. "I think some people liked me a lot there and I think some people thought otherwise. I liked playing in Pittsburgh and Wilkes-Barre (AHL). It was awesome."
