Pandolfo scored 12 goals and 12 assists over 54 games in 2007-08 and will enter his 12th season with New Jersey.
"We're delighted," Lamoriello said Tuesday. "He wanted to be back, and we wanted him back."
The native of Winchester, Mass., has collected 90 goals and 114 assists for 204 points in 706 career games, all with the Devils.
Pandolfo, 33, was a member of New Jersey's Stanley Cup titles in 2000 and 2003. The 6-1, 190-lb. winger's games-played total ranks 10th in franchise history, while his 307 consecutive games-played streak (Jan. 22, 2003-Nov. 28, 2007) is fourth-longest in club history.
In 2006-07, he was a finalist for the Frank J. Selke Trophy as the league's top defensive forward.
Prior to his NHL career, Pandolfo spent parts of three seasons with Albany (AHL), after being selected by the Devils in the second round, 32nd overall, in the 1993 Entry Draft.
Sergei Brylin became an unrestricted free agent Tuesday when the option year on his contract was not exercised. Brylin scored 129 goals and 179 assists for 308 points in 765 career games, all with the Devils, and was a member of all three of New Jersey's championship teams.
