The New Jersey Devils have re-signed forward Sergey Kalinin to a one-year, $800,000 contract.

Kalinin, 25, was a restricted free agent. He had eight goals and seven assists in 78 games last season, his first in the NHL after coming over from Russia last summer.

The Devils still have one key RFA to sign. That would be leading scorer Kyle Palmieri, who has filed for arbitration. If possible, the club would like to lock the 25-year-old up with a long-term deal.

Winger Reid Boucher is also an RFA, per General Fanager.
