Scott Gomez’s infamous journey as a Montreal Canadien is likely to end after this season and he just may end up playing where it all began more than ten years ago.

According to L.A. Lariviere, Gomez, 32, is “aiming” to suit up for the New Jersey Devils next season. From Lariviere via Twitter:

#Habs Scott Gomez reportedly aiming to return to Devils after this season; tells friends he’ll be bought out after season, says [Patrice] Brisebois … Gomez: some sources think that Devils GM Lamoriello would consider offering him a 1-yr deal, low salary, given he grew w/ organization #Habs

Gomez originally joined the Devils in 1998 when they drafted him 27th overall in the NHL Entry Draft. He eventually became the face of the Devils before joining the New York Rangers in 2007. Since then he has gone on to struggle with the Montreal Canadiens, having notched just 53 points in 125 games.

The Canadiens are expected to buy out Gomez’s $7.4 million contract at season’s end.
