Mike Cammalleri is in his 13th season in the NHL, but this is his first year with the New Jersey Devils. He was a free agent addition prior to the 2014-15 season signing a long term contract which was highly scrutinized by both the fans and the media alike.

Cammalleri has responded with 25 goals so far through his first 57 games in a Devils sweater, this will mark his sixth season of at least 25 goals scored in his NHL career. Mike also has 11 assists to his credit this season and has been asked to play both on the wing and manning the pivot as a center in one of the team’s most productive lines. He has responded to these challenges dutifully as the consummate professional that he is, and is one of the few bright spots in a difficult season in New Jersey.

Mike averages 18 minutes of Time On the Ice this season, and is a critical piece of the Devils offensive attack. He is often tasked with marking one of the top two or three scoring players on the opposition. Cammalleri is a very good skater with quick hands and an arsenal of different shots which create havoc for the opposing goaltender.

Cammalleri has put up very solid career numbers with 261 goals 277 assists for 538 points and +/- of -55 in his professional tenure in the NHL. He has been a welcome addition to the Devils and should be a consistent goal scoring threat in the years to come.
