The New Jersey Devils re-signed forward Dainius Zubrus to a three-year extension worth $3.1 million per year, according to the Bergen County (N.J.) Record.
The team has not made an announcement.
"I'm very happy," Zubrus said. "I didn't want to go anywhere. I came here six years ago because I believe that (general manager) Lou (Lamoriello) tries to put a team together to win and I'm happy. He's going to be doing that as long as he's a Devil. So, I'm happy to stay."
Zubrus, 35, had just two goals and seven assists in only 22 games last season. However, he did have 17 goals and 27 assists in 2011-12 and added 10 points in the playoffs when the Devils reached the Stanley Cup finals.
The Devils only have nine forwards under contract for next season so they will likely make more moves. Zubrus, Ilya Kovalchuk and Travis Zajac are the only forwards signed beyond next season.
The Record also reported that the Devils are close to re-signing center Patrik Elias but forward David Clarkson will likely become a free agent.
