Devils Sign Joe Morrow, Waive Him for AHL Depth

NEWARK, N.J. — The New Jersey Devils have signed veteran defenceman Joe Morrow and waived him, hoping to send him to their AHL franchise.

General manager Ray Shero says Morrow signed a one-year, two-way contract worth $700,000 at the NHL level and $250,000 at the AHL level.

Shero said Morrow would be assigned to Binghamton if he clears waivers Monday. He was the 23rd overall pick in the 2011 draft by Pittsburgh.
