Dougie Hamilton joins Devils on $63 million, 7-year deal

Dougie Hamilton is joining the New Jersey Devils after getting the biggest contract handed out on the first day of NHL free agency.

Hamilton and the Devils agreed to terms Wednesday on a $63 million, seven-year deal that gives the rebuilding organization one of hockey's most prolific defensemen to add pieces around on the blue line.

"Our entire staff is excited for what Dougie will provide us on the ice," Devils coach Lindy Ruff said. "He is an elite offensive talent who runs a power play, accompanied by strong defensive play on the back end. At 6-6, his skating, skill, mobility, and ability to stabilize the game in all situations will be key for our team."
