After making his pro debut with the Albany Devils as an undrafted free agent, Raman Hrabarenka has signed a three-year, two-way deal with the New Jersey Devils.
Hrabarenka, a 6’2″ defenceman, spent two seasons in the QMJHL before making it to the pro ranks with Albany. With the AHL’s Devils last season, the Belarussian blue liner put up five points (1-4) in 34 games, to go along with 18 PIM.
While in the ‘Q’, Hrabarenka had six goals and 23 assists over 107 games. In the playoff, in 8 appearances, the 20-year-old added 3 points (2-1).
Hrabarenka’s contract with the Devils will pay him $70,000 a season in the AHL, and his NHL contract value will gradually increase from around $642,000 in 2013-14 to just over $742,000 in the deal’s final year.
