The New Jersey Devils and restricted free agent forward Reid Boucher have put pen to paper on a new one-year, two-way contract worth $715,000 at the NHL level, the club announced Wednesday.

Boucher, selected by the Devils in the fourth round of the 2011 NHL Draft, turns 23 years old in September.

He has split each of the last three seasons between New Jersey and its AHL affiliate in Albany.

With good offensive numbers in the minors, Boucher scored eight goals and 19 points in 39 games with New Jersey last season.

However, his 2015-16 season didn’t get off to a great start, as Boucher was diagnosed with a concussion while playing for the Devils in the Buffalo Sabres Prospects Challenge last September.
