Rangers sign ex-Avalanche center Tyler Arnason. No contract numbers yet, but it's said to be a two-way deal which makes this an excellent signing for the Rangers. Arnason can definitely play a Tortorella style of game. He provides depth to the Ranger roster in the event any of the penciled-in rookie prospects falter. Otherwise, he'll find himself as an occasional NHL injury fill-in and the leader in Hartford. This is a good depth move and signing for Slats.

Also, the Rangers re-signed Hartford (AHL) stalwart P.A. Parenteau and also signed AHL veteran Corey Locke. It's doubtful that either will be playing in the NHL, but it does give the Rangers two good players for Hartford.
