Newark, NJ (Sports Network) - The New Jersey Devils signed first- round pick, forward Stefan Matteau, to a three-year, entry-level contract on Tuesday.

Matteau is the son of former NHLer Stephane Matteau, who scored a pair of double-overtime goals for the New York Rangers to defeat the Devils in the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals -- the latter a Game 7 winner at Madison Square Garden which helped the Blueshirts on their path to the Stanley Cup.

The younger Matteau was taken with the 29th pick back in June. An 18-year-old Chicago-born forward, he totaled 15 goals and 32 points with 166 penalty minutes in 46 games for the under-18 U.S. development program squad.
