Devils acquire Steve Sullivan from Phoenix

Newark, NJ – The New Jersey Devils today acquired forward Steve Sullivan from the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for the club’s seventh-round selection in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

The announcement was made by Devils’ President/CEO/General Manager Lou Lamoriello.

Sullivan is looking to become the 24th player to be re-acquired and see action with New Jersey. The 5-9, 160-lb. forward had five goals and seven assists for 12 points and 20 penalty minutes in 33 games with Phoenix this season, after signing as a free agent on July 4, 2012.

He has career totals of 288 goals and 454 assists for 742 points and 583 penalty minutes in 1,002 career appearances over 15 seasons with New Jersey, Toronto, Chicago, Nashville, Pittsburgh and Phoenix. Sullivan recorded a career-high 34 goals and 75 points with the Blackhawks in 2000-01.

Born July 6, 1974 in Timmins, Ont., he played in 49 games with the Devils during the 1995-96 and 1996-97 seasons. He appeared in his 1,000th career NHL game last Thursday, March 28 at Nashville. Sullivan was the recipient of the 2008-09 Bill Masterton Trophy for perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. He was New Jersey’s tenth choice (9th round), and 233rd overall selection in the 1994 Entry Draft.
