Brunner signed to pro tryout



An hour before dropping the puck on the preseason opener, the Devils announced the signing of Damien Brunner to a pro tryout.

General manager Lou Lamoriello confirmed Monday that the free agent forward had arrived in New Jersey and would practice with the team on Tuesday.

"We had inquired about him early in the year, like you inquire about all players who have the ability to do certain things," Lamoriello said. "We certainly have seen him in Detroit. We know a little bit about him from the Swiss league and we thought that he would be signing and we thought that through the summer, but we said if it didn't work out, we would be very much interested in taking him to camp. When it looked like he hadn't gotten a contract, we communicated and kept our word and he's here."

The 27-year-old tallied 26 points (12 goals, 14 assists) in 44 games with Detroit last season, adding nine points (5 goals, 4 assists) in 14 postseason games. He also posted 25 goals and 32 assists in 33 games last year with Zug (Swiss) following a career-high 60 points (24 goals, 36 assists) in 45 games in 2011-12.

"He's a natural scorer," Lamoriello said. "He's scored throughout his whole career and he's a very skillful player. We'll have time over the next week and a half just to see where everything's at. We'll certainly get him in exhibition games and we'll proceed after that. There's no promises, no guarantees, nothing. It's a very upfront situation. Both of us know where each other is at."
