Devils Re-Sign Andy Greene

Andy Greene wanted to remain a New Jersey Devil.

His agent, Dan Plante, received four calls today about the unrestricted free agent. Three of those, according to Plante, were “Stanley Cup contenders.” But Greene’s first choice was to stay with the organization.

Lou Lamoriello made that happen, inking the defenseman to a four-year contract shortly after noon today.

“I’m really excited,” Greene told Tom Gulitti of The Bergen Record. “I was pretty confident it was going to get done, but, obviously, you never know until the last minute and until it’s agreed upon I’m pretty fired up and excited.”

Neither Greene or Plante would disclose the terms of the deal.

Greene played in all 82 games this season, collecting 23 points. He remains one of the only offensive threats along the Devils’ blue line.

Greene’s experience with the organization made him want to stay.

“I like it there,” he told Gulitti. “We have a great group of guys. We have a great team. There’s a lot of reasons. Those are kind of the bigger ones, but there’s alot more that goes into it. I’ve enjoyed my time there. Obviously, there’s been some ups and downs, but there’s been a lot more positives than negatives.”

Greene made $750,000 last season, the final of a two-year deal.
