NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The New Jersey Devils have signed forwards Fabian Zetterlund and Mikhail Maltsev to three-year, entry-level contracts.
General manager Ray Shero announced the signings Monday.
The 19-year-old Zetterlund was New Jersey’s third selection in the 2017 NHL Draft. Maltsev was a fourth-round pick in 2016.
Both have played professionally in Europe. Zetterlund spent the last two seasons in the Swedish Hockey League. A knee injury last season limited him to 16 games.
Maltsev spent the last three seasons with the SKA St. Petersburg organization in Russia, splitting time between the KHL and the second-tier VHL. He most recently played in 13 games with the KHL club, notching one goal and one assist.
