The New Jersey Devils on Wednesday claimed defenseman Alexander Urbom off waivers from the Washington Capitals.

The Capitals had claimed Urbom off waivers from the Devils before the start of the 2013-14 season, and he had one goal and one assist in 20 games with Washington. He hadn't played an NHL game since Nov. 29.

Urbom, a third-round pick (No. 73) of the Devils in the 2009 NHL Draft, had two goals in 14 games over parts of three seasons with New Jersey.
