Newark, NJ – The Devils today signed defenseman Cory Murphy to a two-way contract. The announcement was made by Devils’ President/CEO General Manager Lou Lamoriello. As per club policy, no further terms were disclosed.

The 5-10, 185-lb. defenseman was claimed off of re-entry waivers by the Lightning on January 19, 2009, after starting the season with the Panthers. Murphy added two goals and four assists for six points and two penalty minutes in five AHL appearances.

The native of Kanata, Ont. made his North American professional debut after signing with Florida as a free agent on March 26, 2007. He spent six seasons in Europe, including 2001-03 with Blues Espoo (Fin.), 2003-05 with Ilves Tampere (Fin.), 2005-06 with HC Fribourg-Gotteron (Swi.), and 2006-07 with HIFK Helsinki (Fin.).
