Butler joins the Devils
Bobby Butler has a new home.
Butler, who has bought out of the final year of his contract with the Ottawa Senators earlier this summer, has signed a two-way contract with the New Jersey Devils, meaning he’ll receive an NHL salary if he stays in the big leagues, but a substantially reduced salary if he’s playing in the AHL.
Butler, 25, scored six goals and 10 assists with the Senators last season.
