Travis Zajac
Newark, NJ – The Devils today re-signed center Travis Zajac to a new multi-year contract. The announcement was made by Devils’ President/CEO/General Manager Lou Lamoriello.  As per club policy, no further terms were disclosed.
 
“During his previous three seasons in the National Hockey League, Travis Zajac has proven to be among the top young players in the game, and has developed into one of the core players on our team,” said Lamoriello. “We are pleased that we were able to work out a long-term agreement.”    
 
Zajac, 24, will enter his fourth National Hockey League training camp in September. He posted career highs with 20 goals, 42 assists, 62 points, and a team-leading plus-33 mark in 2008-09, while appearing in all 82 games for the second straight season.

The 6-3, 195-lb. forward added one goal and three assists for four points in seven post-season contests. Zajac has career totals of 51 goals and 87 assists for 138 points and 76 penalty minutes in 244 regular-season games, as well as two goals and eight assists for ten points and 14 penalty minutes in 23 playoff appearances, all with New Jersey.

Zajac joined the organization following two seasons at the University of North Dakota (WCHA), advancing to the NCAA Championship Game as a freshman, and Frozen Four as a sophomore.  Born May 13, 1985 in Winnipeg, Man., he was named to the NCAA Championship All-Tournament Team, NCAA East All-Tournament Team, and WCHA All-Rookie Team while with the Fighting Sioux in 2005. He was drafted by New Jersey with its first choice, 20th overall, in the 2004 Entry Draft after two seasons with Salmon Arm (BCJHL), and signed his first pro contract April 13, 2006.
