Per a report the New York Rangers have agreed to a two-year deal with Providence Senior John Gilmour.

Gilmour is coming off a nine-goal, 24 point performance in 34 games this year. Adam has a little more information on the signing.

The Rangers have a dearth of high-end prospects in the system, and while Gilmour won’t exactly change that, adding young talent isn’t a bad thing. I look at these players like lottery tickets in that the more you have the more chances you have to find a diamond in the rough. More than anything, though, the Hartford Wolf Pack has been a disaster and this should help that.

I get it, this isn’t the news you wanted to hear while we’re all waiting on Jimmy Vesey but this is still some good news and some good work. Hopefully this is just the first of two big NCAA free agent signings.

Thoughts?
