Travis Zajac is ecstatic that he was able to ink a long-term deal with the New Jersey Devils.

"Obviously I want to be here. I believe in this organization 100 percent," said Zajac after the announcement of his eight-year/$46 million extension. "I think it's a first-class organization. It's the environment I want to surround myself in on and off the ice. My family is in New Jersey. We love the people here. We love living here. With all that and the players and coaching staff, I think we have a great chance here to always be successful." His current deal expires after this season and then his new one, which has a no-trade clause, kicks in which carries a $5.75 million cap hit for the Devils.
