The New Jersey Devils announced on Wednesday that they’ve re-signed former Merrimack College forward Brett Seney to a one-year contract. The deal Seney signed is a two-way deal that will pay him $700,000 at the NHL level and $250,000 if he’s assigned to the team’s AHL affiliate in Binghamton (a team coached by former Merrimack head coach Mark Dennehy).
Seney appeared in 51 games for New Jersey during the 2018-19 season and suited up for two this past year. Seney led Binghamton in scoring this past season, posting 19 goals and 25 assists (44pts) in 61 games.
The deal is a significant raise for Seney, who more than triples his AHL salary. The Ontario native was paid $700,000 at the NHL level on his previous entry-level contract, but was only paid $70,000 while in the AHL.
