Newark, NJ (Sports Network) - The New Jersey Devils have brought back defenseman Marek Zidlicky for the upcoming 2013-14 season.
The team announced Wednesday it has signed the Czech veteran to an undisclosed contract, which the Bergen Record reported to be for one year.
Zidlicky led all New Jersey blueliners with 19 points (4 goals, 15 assists) while playing in all 48 games during the lockout-shortened 2013 season, his first full campaign with the Devils. He was acquired by New Jersey from the Minnesota Wild just prior to the trade deadline in 2011-12.
The 36-year-old broke into the NHL with Nashville in 2003-04 and has accumulated 66 goals, 325 points and 544 penalty minutes over nine seasons with the Predators, Wild and Devils. Zidlicky tallied 12 goals or more in three of those years.
