NEWARK, NJ - APRIL 23: David Clarkson #23 of the New Jersey Devils argues a first period penalty call during the game against the Montreal Canadiens at the Prudential Center on April 23, 2013 in Newark, New Jersey.
They are two players we would have offered contracts to had they been fit, and we feel they still have a lot to offer the club ... They proved their worth to me since I joined the club, and even though their involvement was cut short, they played a big part in what we are trying to do here. We will also be getting three new faces with players returning from injury. With Matt Harrold, Matt Gill and David Clarkson all expected to be back for pre-season it will be like having three new signings.
When you get to meet these kids, you get to see the smiles on their faces just for something so little as a helmet or a pair of hockey pants ... It was something we had wanted to do for a while and the NHLPA was right there.More quotes »
