The #NYR have agreed to terms with free agent defenseman Conor Allen, who played this season at UMASS-Amherst— New York Rangers (@NYRangers) March 29, 2013
Allen will report directly to the CT Whale on an Amateur Tryout Contract (ATO), with his Rangers contract beginning next season.
The 6' 1", 210lb Allen finished his career at UMass with 14 goals, 25 assists, and 39 points. Allen was also a two-time Hockey East All-Academic Team honoree.
For more on Allen visit the Rangers website.
...while I'm sure the Rangers would have rather signed Andrej Sustr (aka Chara Jr.), Allen will provide the Blueshirts with some much needed organizational depth on the blueline, which you can never have enough of. Great job by Sather getting this kid to sign.
Conor Allen free agent D signed by NY Rangers. Good size, good defensive zone coverage. Hoping for solid two way play.— Leslie Treff (@HFNYRangers) March 29, 2013
