The New Jersey Devils and forward Brian Gionta have agreed to terms on a new multi-year contract.

Sources tell TSN it's a three-year deal worth about $4 million per year.

The Devils, earlier Tuesday gave themselves a $7.1 million cushion under the current salary cap, which enabled them to sign Gionta. He was a restricted free agent, entering Devils camp in good faith without a new contract. Devils GM Lou Lamoriello worked out numerous deals over the past week in order to orchestrate a situation which would enable him to sign the 26-year-old right-winger.

Lamoriello still has to sign restricted free agent defencemen David Hale and Paul Martin.
