Look everyone, news!! …DEVILS-related news!!!
Lou Lamoriello must be trying to fill the void left by Karel Rachunek after he peaced out to Russia. (Oh, you didn’t know he left? Oh well.)
The Devils have signed Finnish free-agent Anssi
Salmonella Salmela to a contract. This is the Devils we’re talking about so naturally terms of the contract were not and probably never will be disclosed. Secrecy, dudes.
Salmela is a 23-year-old defenseman who has split time between Tappara and the Pelicans of the Finnish elite league. He has also represented Finland at the 2004 World Juniors and this year’s tournament as well.
Through 226 games, Anssi has tallied 36 goals, 42 assists, and 208 penalty minutes.
