The New Jersey Devils today signed forward Joseph Blandisi to a two-year, two-way contract, and goaltender Scott Wedgewood to a one-year, two-way contract.

Blandisi, 23, completed his second season with the Devils’ organization in 2016-17, recording three goals and six assists for nine points in 27 NHL games with New Jersey and eight goals and 17 assists for 25 points in 31 AHL contests with Albany. Blandisi was named to the 2017 AHL All-Star Classic, but did not participate because of illness.

The Markham, Ont., native signed with New Jersey as a free agent on January 14, 2015, and has totaled 17 goals and 31 assists for 48 points in 58 AHL games over his two pro seasons. He suited up for 41 NHL games as a rookie in 2015-16, and has compiled eight goals and 18 assists in 68 career NHL matches.

Blandisi was originally Colorado’s sixth-round choice, 162nd overall, in the 2012 NHL Draft.

Wedgewood, 24, was limited to 10 games last season due to a shoulder injury. He went 5-3-0 with a 2.18 GAA and a .912 save percentage with Albany, and shows a record of 50-36-12 (2.36, .907) with eight shutouts in 109 career AHL appearances.

Wedgewood, a native of Brampton, Ont., made his NHL debut with New Jersey in 2015-16 and notched his first two wins, including a shutout.

He was New Jersey’s third-round choice, 84th overall, in the 2010 NHL Draft.
