Forward Nathan Bastian is heading back to New Jersey after being claimed off waivers Thursday by the Devils.

He was placed on waivers Wednesday by the Seattle Kraken, who selected him in the expansion draft in July.

Bastian, 23, registered one goal, one assist and 31 penalty minutes in 12 games this season with Seattle.

He had 13 points (six goals, seven assists) in 48 games with New Jersey during the 2018-19 and 2020-21 seasons.

New Jersey drafted the Ontario native in the second round in 2016.
