Devils, F Miles Wood agree to 1-year, $3.2 million deal

New Jersey Devils forward Miles Wood signed a one-year deal worth $3.2 million on Thursday as the team and player avoided arbitration.

Wood has played 326 career games across parts of seven NHL seasons, all with the Devils, after New Jersey made him a fourth-round pick in the 2013 draft. He has collected 121 points (65 goals, 56 assists) in his career.

Wood, 26, was held to just three games in 2021-22 after needing right hip surgery. His best season came in 2017-18, when he posted career highs in goals (19) and points (32) over 76 games.

He has also served as an assistant captain for the Devils for some games in the 2020-21 and 2021-22 seasons.

Wood and the Devils were scheduled to have an arbitration hearing Saturday in Toronto.
