NEWARK, N.J. - The New Jersey Devils have re-signed defenceman Marek Zidlicky to a one-year, $3 million contract.

The Devils announced the signing of Zidlicky on Wednesday.

Now the Devils can keep their top defensive pair together. Zidlicky usually plays with captain Bryce Salvador.

Acquired from Minnesota in February 2012, Zidlicky helped the Devils reach the Stanley Cup finals that season. The native of the Czech Republic had four goals and 15 assists last season when New Jersey failed to make the post-season.
