Lowell Devils fans are gonna love Dean McAmmond

Looks like the New Jersey Devils won the Dean McAmmond sweepstakes, signing the awesomely awesome veteran to an AHL contract (which may be two-way, it's unclear at this point). The Devils have just become one of my favourite teams.

From the team's official site:

The Devils announced Tuesday that Lowell has signed forward Dean McAmmond to an AHL contract. Defenseman Cory Murphy cleared waivers and has been assigned to the Devils' affiliate.

McAmmond, 36, recorded five goals and 11 assists in 62 games split between the Senators and Islanders last season. The 5-11, 195-lb. native of Grand Cache, Alberta, has scored 178 goals and 253 assists for 431 points in 934 career games with Chicago, Edmonton, Philadelphia, Calgary, Colorado, St. Louis, Ottawa, and NY Islanders.

Some of you may remember him from his first tour of duty, but seriously, he's awesome. I hope he gets to your NHL squad soon, and makes serious waves.
