The Albany Devils signed centerman Stephen Gionta to an AHL deal.

Gionta was the Albany captain for the last few seasons and is the Devils' AHL all-time leader with 135 points, 56 goals, 79 assists, 815 shots and 360 games played.

Last season, he had six goals and 10 assists in 56 games with Albany. He was recalled by New Jersey in time to play the last game of the NHL regular season, scoring his first NHL goal in that game. He became an integral part of the team on its run through the playoffs to the Stanley Cup finals, finishing with three goals and four assists in 24 postseason games.
