The New Jersey Devils added some toughness on Friday, acquiring enforcer Kurtis MacDermid from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for prospect Zakhar Bardakov and a 2024 seventh-round pick, the team announced.

MacDermid has managed two goals and 23 penalty minutes in 29 games with the Avalanche this season while averaging 5:05 minutes per contest.

The 29-year-old is a pending unrestricted free agent carrying a cap hit of $987,500.

The 6-foot-5, 233-pound MacDermid has played both forward and defense throughout his seven-year NHL career between the Avalanche and Los Angeles Kings.

Bardakov was a seventh-round pick by the Devils in 2021. The unsigned center has tallied six goals and six assists in 51 games with the KHL's SKA St. Petersburg.
