The Rangers have agreed to terms with University of Vermont forward Chris McCarthy, the club announced on Monday.

McCarthy, 22, enjoyed an impressive senior year with the Catamounts, notching 18 goals and 42 points in 38 games, finishing 25th in the country in scoring. The former U.S. Development Program product established career highs in games played, goals, assists, points, and plus/minus rating this year, leading Vermont in assists and points.

He’s the second noteworthy college free agent New York has signed this spring. Earlier, they agreed to terms with R.P.I sniper Ryan Haggerty.

    Hope it works out. Young talent is good. Haggerty not too long ago. Keep it up Rangers.

    The Rangers have to be active in the pre-NHL free agent market, given the high entry draft picks Sather has traded away. The first and second rounders he tossed in with Callahan for St. Louis do not grow on trees.

    Let’s see what he can do. He has the potential to follow in the footsteps of Patrick Sharp.

    Kevan Miller, former UVMer, fitting in nicely with the Bruins. Good program up in VT….

    I see the Rangers are trying to Irish-up the team to compensate for Callahan leaving. I like it.
