NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -Defensemen Mike Mottau and Sheldon Brookbank were resigned by the New Jersey Devils on Thursday.
Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello did not disclose contract terms.
Mottau was signed as a free agent in July and led Devils' defensemen while playing in 76 games and all five postseason contests. The 30-year-old had four goals and 13 assists in the regular season and added his first career playoff goal in the opening round loss to the New York Rangers in five games. He had 183 minutes in penalties in the regular season.
Claimed off waivers from Columbus on Oct. 2, Brookbank played in a career-high 44 games and had eight assists. The 27-year-old, who played in 18 of the final 23 regular-season games, did not play in the postseason.
