Devils Acquire Jay Leach, Steve Zalewski from San Jose

A bit of old news, but the New Jersey Devils’ re-acquired defenseman Jay Leach and Steve Zalewski from the San Jose Sharks yesterday.

Leach played in the Devils’ organization with both the Devils and Lowell in 2008-09 and 2009-2010 before being claimed off re-entry waivers by the Montreal Canadiens. In 45 games with the Worcester Sharks, he had one goal, four assists and 45 penalty minutes.

Zalewski had four goals and 17 assists in 50 games with Worcester this season. The former fifth round draft pick played three games with the Sharks last season, failing to record a point.

Both Patrick Davis and Mike Swift were traded to the Sharks.

It doesn’t appear that Zalewski or Leach will play for the Devils this season. Both have been assigned to Albany. If needed, Leach could be recalled and would not have to pass through re-entry waivers.
