The New Jersey Devils avoided arbitration by signing forward Tyce Thompson to a two-year contract Tuesday.
It is a two-way deal in 2022-23, worth $750,000 at the NHL level and $175,000 in the AHL, and a one-way deal in 2023-24 for $775,000.
Thompson, 23, played in two games for the Devils in 2021-22 before missing most of the season following shoulder surgery in November.
He returned to the ice with the AHL’s Utica Comets on April 1 and posted 15 points (six goals, nine assists) in 16 games.
A fourth-round pick by New Jersey in 2019, Thompson has one assist in nine career contests with the Devils.
