New Jersey Devils Envision Butler as Scorer

Signing right wing Bobby Butler to a two-way contract is a low risk, high reward move by New Jersey Devils General Manager Lou Lamoriello, who said he could see Butler becoming a top-six forward on the team.

Roger Mussa: Butler the new New Jersey Devil

Reports have Uncle Lou and the New Jersey Devils and Bobby Butler have agreed on a one year deal. Reports are it is a two-way deal still pending confirmation.

Marlborough Man Bobby Butler Signs with the Devils

For all the Skelleftea hockey fans out there, my heart goes out to you because Bobby Butler, "who has scored wherever he’s been", is not coming to an arena near you. Well, that is unless you're a Swedish hockey fan who lives in Newark. Just confirmed that #Marlborough's Bobby Butler has agreed to 1-year, 2-way deal with Devils. Will sign it later today or...
