The Devils, along with several other teams, are looking to bolster their offensive game this season.
Elliotte Friedman of CBC first reported on Wednesday that the Devils were interested in Cammalleri, though he questioned New Jersey's ability to get a deal done, indicating that the team doesn't have a first-round pick this year and is reluctant to move its second-round pick and next year's first-round draft choice.
Cammalleri has a limited no-trade clause and can list up to seven teams he will not accept a deal to. He submitted his list of teams in the off-season, when the Flames were fielding offers for him.
Devils GM Lou Lamoriello is also believed to be keeping an eye on New York Islanders left wing Thomas Vanek and Columbus Blue Jackets sniper Marian Gaborik.
The Devils have a solid amount of salary cap space to add a significant asset before the trade deadline, but Lamoriello might be reluctant to move his top young prospects in exchange for rental players.
New Jersey is unlikely to make a move prior to this Friday's Olympic roster freeze and will continue its search for a top-six scorer by the March 5 deadline.
