from Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger,
It appears the Devils will be able to keep highly-regarded defenseman Johnny Oduya from testing the market when the free agency period officiallly begins at noon Wednesday.
Oduya has been priority No. 1 for Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello, who said Monday night that a deal with the speedy defenseman could be finalized Tuesday. Lamoriello and agent Don Meehan are believed to be close to a multi-year contract at about $3 million per season.
“I think that’s close,” Lamoriello said Monday night about re-signing Oduya.
“We are delighted to have Johnny Oduya stay with the organization,” said Lamoriello. “He has developed into one of the more talented young defensemen in the National Hockey League.”
Multi year deal, around $3M per season.
