The New Jersey Devils have signed forward Jimmy Vesey to a one-year, $800,000 deal after participating in the club's training camp on a professional tryout, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

Vesey, 28, won the Hobey Baker Award as the top men's NCAA Hockey player in 2015-16, but his NHL career hasn't taken off through five seasons.

The Boston native played three seasons with the New York Rangers and one with the Buffalo Sabres before splitting last season between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Vancouver Canucks, when he produced 10 points in 50 games.

In three pre-season games with the Devils, he scored two goals.
