 NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -The New Jersey Devils signed defenseman Paul Martin to a multiyear contract on Thursday.
Terms were not immediately available.
``Paul Martin is an all-situations type of defenseman, and has developed into one of the more talented young players in the National Hockey League,'' Devils chief executive Lou Lamoriello said.
Since losing veteran Brian Rafalski - their best defenseman - to free agency, the Devils have re-signed Martin and Johnny Oduya and signed Karel Rachunek and Vitali Vishnevski.
Martin had three goals and 23 assists last season while playing in all 82 regular-season games. He added four assists in 11 playoff games.
The 26-year-old defenseman has 14 goals and 73 assists in 232 games.
