The Devils are hoping Matt D'Agostini thrives with a fresh start.
The 26-year-old has just two points on the year, but he did have 21 goals and 25 assists in a breakout 2010-11 breakout campaign. "He certainly hasn't had the year he has had in the past but we certainly know enough of him as a player,'' said general manager Lou Lamoriello, adding D'Agostini adds depth and flexibility. "We got a lot of information on him. He's a scorer. We feel comfortable he can give us some strength on the right side. He has the ability to play third line, second line. "(It's) also a new life (for D'Agostini). Sometimes people get a jump-start and he's excited to be here."
