Moore was drafted by the Rangers back in 2005.
Dominic Moore took last season off from the NHL to be with his wife, Katie, who tragically passed away from cancer in January at age 32.
Moore left the San Jose Sharks during the 2011-12 playoffs and that was the last time he appeared in a regular-season game.
It would have been understandable if Moore showed some rust after such a lengthy layoff, but he has really been impressive so far this preseason.
Moore scored the Rangers' only goal against the New Jersey Devils in their preseason opener and he is almost a lock to center the fourth line this season.
Alain Vigneault was pleased with what he saw on the ice and on the bench. Moore could be a great locker room leader to have this season, according to Steve Zipay of Newsday.
The Rangers' 2005 third-round draft pick has been a pleasant surprise in camp and he could be a vital asset this season.
