Devils sign defenseman Yohann Auvitu

I think he'll be in contention for the NHL team right away - he's 26 and will turn 27 in July.  Seems like a fine contender for the 7th D spot.  Hard to know how good he might be, the Finnish league isn't that great, and like the Coneheads he came from France before that.

Funny, I couldn't decide if I thought this guy was Finnish or French (a distinction I never thought I'd have to try to make, dude's got a crazy name), turns out he's France French and been playing in Finland.

One extra U somewhere and that name couldn't be more Finnish.

Anyone know what style he is as in offensive minded, stay at home, two way...etc.?

I've read that we could be interested in signing Demers this summer too. I also think Santini has a decent shot at making the team and let's not forget about Warsofsky. 

So we know our defense will at least consist of these guys...

Greene

Larsson

Severson

Moore

Merrill

Auvitu

With the possibility of still signing these guys...

Schlemko

Warsofsky

Demers

And the possibility of a Santini or Mozik or someone fighting for a spot. 

Not a bad position to be in really.

I'm no expert but at first glance, both with stats and highlights, it looks like he's a puck-moving offensive D-man.
