Valiquette Signs with KHL Team

New York Hockey DailyContributor INovember 26, 2016

Valiquette, 32, has been with the Rangers since before the lock-out. Although his playing time was sporatic he was the team’s primary backup goalie behind Henrik Lundqvist from the 2007-08 season until he was demoted earlier this season for ineffectiveness.

At his age a return to the NHL for the Canadian born player is still certainly possible, but it might be unrealistic since his options were already so limited that he left the league.

It is still too early to figure out who the Rangers’ backup goalie will be next season. Even before this news it was unlikely that Vally would get the chance.
