The Devils continue to be very active in the early stages of 2020 NHL free agency.
After trading for defenseman Ryan Murray and signing goaltender Corey Crawford, the Devils made another trade on Saturday evening, acquiring left winger Andreas Johnsson from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for forward Joey Anderson.
"Andreas is a hard-working, competitive forward who can slot up and down the lineup" said GM Tom Fitzgerald. "The overall versatility of his game will be a great complement to our centermen, with his skating, quickness, and scoring touch."
The 25-year-old tallied eight goals and added 13 assists in 65 games with Toronto last season. In four seasons north of the border, Johnsson racked up 30 goals and 37 assists to go along with 46penalty minutes and a plus-12 rating.
Anderson leaves the Devils after being originally drafted by the team in the third round in 2016. He scored eight goals with five assists in 52 games with New Jersey.
