The New York Rangers are a game away from having their season ended and they’re already looking ahead to next season.
TSN’s Darren Dreger reports the Rangers have signed Czech defenseman Petr Zamorsky to a two-year deal.
Zamorsky, 21, spent the past three seasons playing for HC Zlin in the Czech Extraliga. He also suited up for the Czech Republic at the 2014 World Championships.
In 118 games with Zlin, he had 16 goals and 20 assists as well as 144 penalty minutes. At Worlds this year he had three assists and 12 penalty minutes in 10 games. Perhaps most notably, Zamorsky is a right-handed shot on the blue line, something that’s become harder to find in the NHL.
Zamorsky will compete for a job with the big club in training camp but it’s expected he will start in the AHL with Hartford.
