New York Rangers Sign Minor League D-Man Brian Fahey

Greg CaggianoSenior Writer IJuly 18, 2008

Today, New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced that the Rangers had come to terms with free agent defenseman Brian Fahey.

The 27-year-old AHL veteran has skated in over 249 games with teams such as the Worcester Ice Cats, Hersey Bears, Iowa Stars, and the Chicago Wolves, most recently. In that time he has tallied 31 goals and 57 assists for 88 points and 298 penalty minutes.

It's not clear what the Rangers' motive was for signing him, but he could very well be a seventh defenseman for the big club, or a replacement for former Hartford Wolf Pack (Rangers' AHL affiliate) captain Andrew Hutchinson, who left via free-agency in the last few weeks.
