With the New York Rangers transitioning their roster in favor of youth and speed, the writing has been on the wall for quite some time. Earlier this afternoon, Dominic Moore signed a one-year deal with the Boston Bruins that will carry a cap hit of $900,000. Thus ending his secondary, three-year stint with the Rangers, where he played an integral part on the fourth line.
One of the brightest spots during his second go-around came back in 2014, when he scored the lone goal in Game 6 against the Montreal Canadiens and sent the Rangers off to the Stanley Cup Final.
It sucks to see Dominic Moore move on from the Rangers, but it’s great to see him get another opportunity to remain in the league. Even though his play has dipped a bit, he’s still a quality player in the right role, and is an incredibly likable person on and off the ice.
Best of luck in Boston, Dom.
