The New Jersey Devils have signed free agent centre Rob Niedermayer, GM Lou Lamoriello announced on Friday.

The 34-year-old, who signed a one-year contract for $1 million, had 14 goals and seven assists in 79 games and was a -17 last season for the Anaheim Ducks.

"I've felt that we needed a little size and strength down the middle, and now with Travis (Zajac) and Zubie (Dainius Zubrus) and Robbie (Niedermayer), I think we've got three pretty good size-strength center icemen," Lamoriello said.

The Edmonton native has 171 goals in 1,011 career NHL games with the Florida Panthers, Calgary Flames and the Ducks.
