Damien Brunner has accepted a tryout offer from the New Jersey Devils.

Last year as a rookie in the NHL, Brunner had 12 goals and 26 points in 44 games with Detroit. Brunner was reportedly close to signing with the Devils earlier this summer, but New Jersey went out and signed Jaromir Jagr instead.

In 2011–12, Brunner had 60 points in 45 games, leading the NLA in points and was named the league’s forward of the year.  He returned to EV Zug for the 2012–13 season until the 2012–13 NHL lockout was resolved, scoring 57 points in 33 games, good enough to finish third overall despite missing a portion of the season once the NHL season resumed.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
