NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The New Jersey Devils have signed first-round pick Alexander Holtz to a three-year, entry-level contract starting next season. Devils general manager Tom Fitzgerald announced that Holtz also signed an AHL amateur try-out agreement for the remainder of the 2020-21 season. He'll join Binghamton after finishing his quarantine period. The seventh pick overall in the draft, Holtz recently finished his Swedish Hockey League season with seven goals and 11 assists in 40 games for Djurgardens. The Swedish forward added two goals and two assists in three playoff games, which tied for the team lead in scoring.
