GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Phoenix Coyotes have traded forward Steve Sullivan to the New Jersey Devils for a seventh-round draft pick.

A 38-year-old left wing, Sullivan started his NHL career with the Devils, playing parts of two seasons in New Jersey from 1995-97.

Sullivan signed with Phoenix as a free agent during the offseason and had some good stretches with the Coyotes, scoring five goals with seven assists in 33 games, though he hadn't registered a point in the last 10 games.

He was honored by the Coyotes before Tuesday night's game against the Los Angeles Kings after playing in his 1,000th career game last week.

Sullivan has 288 goals and 454 assists in 16 NHL seasons with six teams.
