The New Jersey Devils today signed defensemen Eric Gryba and John Ramage to a one-year, two-way contracts.

Gryba has appeared in 279 career AHL games with Edmonton and Ottawa, totaling seven goals and 36 assists for 43 points.

A 2006 draft pick by the Senators, Gryba spent three seasons with Ottawa’s AHL affiliate in Binghamton, which is now home to New Jersey’s development club. Gryba won a Calder Cup championship with the B-Senators in 2011, and has 14 goals and 25 assists for 39 points in 207 career AHL contests.

Ramage split the 2017-18 season among Cleveland, Tucson and Milwaukee in the AHL, totaling four goals and 11 assists for 15 points in 66 games.

In 310 AHL games over five pro seasons, Ramage has tallied 19 goals and 64 assists for 83 points. He was a member of Lake Erie’s Calder Cup championship team in 2016.

A fourth-round draft choice by Calgary in 2010, Ramage has also skated in two career NHL games, one with the Flames and one with the Columbus Blue Jackets.
