AARON DELL HAS FOUND A NEW HOME

Per TSN's Pierre LeBrun, goaltender Aaron Dell, who was placed on waivers by the Toronto Maple Leafs Sunday, has been claimed by the New Jersey Devils.

Dell, 31, signed a one-year deal with the Maple Leafs this offseason after spending the first four seasons of his NHL career with the San Jose Sharks. Last season saw him appear in a career high 33 games, posting a 3.01 goals against average (GAA) along with a .907 save percentage (SV%) and a 12-15-3 record. While those numbers don't look overly impressive, the team in front of him struggled plenty last season. His goaltending partner Martin Jones fared no better, posting a 3.00 GAA and a .896 SV% in 41 games.



The Devils claiming Dell is not a surprise, given that Corey Crawford, who they signed as a free agent this summer, recently decided to call it a career. As a result, it left the Devils with limited options behind starting goalie Mackenzie Blackwood. Having Dell will allow the Devils coaching staff to rest the 24-year-old Blackwood when needed.

Jason Spezza, who was also put on waivers by the Leafs Sunday, has cleared and remains with the team.
