Jason Arnott's Stanley Cup-winning goal in 2000 is permanently etched in the memory of every Devils fan.

But bringing back one of the best power forwards in club history isn't just a nod to the past. It's about adding size to the center position (Arnott's 6-5, 219 lbs.), along with a proven scoring touch.

New Jersey reacquired its 2000 hero on Saturday, shipping 22-year-old prospect Matt Halischuk and a second-round pick in 2011 to Nashville.

A review of Arnott's tallies from 2009-10 finds some crafty redirections mixed in with powerful drives to the net. His quick hands and brute strength will make an imposing combo for the Devils' in their 2010-11 Cup quest.

Arnott, who turns 36 on October 11, has averaged 27.8 goals and 61 points a season since the lockout. He notched 33 goals in 2008-09, matching the career high he set as a rookie in 1993-94 and demonstrating that he's every bit the scoring threat he was as a 19-year-old in Edmonton. In 302 career games as a Devil, Arnott scored 97 goals and 124 assists for 221 points. He has 383 goals, 490 assists and 873 points in 1,099 career games overall.

Playoff experience? Arnott has lots of that, too. The native of Collingwood, Ontario, was a member of Jersey's Team from 1997-98 to 2001-02, and appeared in 58 postseason games with the Devils, including their runs to the 2000 Stanley Cup and the 2001 Finals.

He averaged nearly a point a game during the 2000 playoffs, putting up eight goals and 12 assists for 20 points in 23 games. He added eight goals and seven assists for 15 points in 23 games during the 2001 postseason. For his playoff career, Arnott has 30 goals, 36 assists in 106 contests.

To welcome Jason back to New Jersey, here's a look at some of his top goals from last year:

Dec. 2, 2009: A slapper breaks the tie vs. Minnesota


Dec. 5, 2009: Banking one home vs. the Wild


Dec. 10, 2009: A beauty backhander vs. the Blue Jackets


March 4, 2010: Crowning the Kings on the power play


April 26, 2010: Playoff power-play magic vs. the Blackhawks
