The New Jersey Devils have announced the signing of forward Brian Gibbons to a one-year, two-way contract on Saturday. The 29 year-old Massachusetts native will be entering his second season for the Devils’ organization and is most likely slated for Binghamton in the fall.
Gibbons recorded 16 goals and 20 assists in 72 outings for Albany last season and a single goal in four post-season action against the Toronto Marlies. This will be Gibbons’ seventh season in the AHL as the left winger also played in 66 NHL games (41 with Pittsburgh 2013-’14, 25 with Columbus 2014-’15).
At 5’ 8” 170 lbs he plays the role of a pest as Binghamton fans will remember during his playing days for rival Wilkes-Barre/Scranton from 2011-’14. This time, he’s now on our side giving fans something to cheer about as he will provide that valuable veteran leadership in the locker room once again in 2017-’18.
