Newark, NJ – The Devils today acquired forward Trent Hunter from the New York Islanders in exchange for forward Brian Rolston. The announcement was made by Devils’ President/CEO/GM Lou Lamoriello.

Hunter, 31, joins the Devils after spending nine seasons with the Islanders’ organization. His career totals show 99 goals and 130 assists for 229 points and 201 penalty minutes in 459 career NHL contests. The 6-3, 210-lb. forward has also appeared in 14 career playoff games, posting four goals and one assist for five points and six penalty minutes. He had career highs of 25 goals, 26 assists and 51 points and was named to the NHL’s All-Rookie Team in 2003-04. Hunter saw action with the Islanders and Bridgeport (AHL) in both 2001-02 and 2002-03.

He made his regular-season NHL debut in 2002-03, after appearing in four games during the 2002 Stanley Cup Playoffs vs. Toronto. Born July 5, 1980 in Red Deer, Alta., he made his professional debut with Springfield (AHL) in 2000-01. He was acquired by the NY Islanders from Anaheim on May 23, 2000. Hunter was the Mighty Ducks’ fourth choice (sixth round) and 150th overall selection in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. He played three seasons of junior hockey for Prince George (WHL).
