The New Jersey Devils recently signed former Ottawa Senator Bobby Butler to a one-year, two-way contract (via sporting news NHL).

When Devils GM Lou Lamoriello announced the news last Thursday, Devils fans everywhere thought one thing...

Who the H-E double hockey sticks is Bobby Butler? 

Turns out, Butler had an impressive NHL debut in 2010 with Ottawa, putting up a noteworthy 21 points (10 G, 11 A) in 36 games (via the Ottawa Senators website).

Prior to being called up to Ottawa, Butler had similar success with Ottawa's AHL team the Binghamton Senators. According to the Ottawa Senators website, Butler recorded 15 goals, eight assists and 17 penalty minutes in 25 games with Binghamton. 

Even prior to that, Butler put up 61 goals, 60 assists and 88 penalty minutes over his four-year 153-game collegiate career at the University of New Hampshire (via: the Ottawa Senators website).

Fans might not think Butler was a sufficient pickup after losing Zach Parise; however, it is possible that Lamoriello found a sleeper free-agent signing this offseason in Butler. 

Here are three reasons why the Devils made a great addition in Butler.
