Rangers Sign Chris ChappellJune 30, 2009, by
As per Andrew Gross, the Rangers have come to terms with LW Chris Chappell, who was in camp as a non-roster invitee. Chappell is a big boy, at 6’4 209 lbs, and played for Saginaw of the OHL last season, putting up 38-38-76, with 88 PIMS (8 fights) in 68 games, while serving as the team captain.
There’s not much of a scouting report available for him, and I’m surprised that, with those numbers and that size, that he wasn’t drafted. Maybe his skating was called into question? But to that, I say if he’s surviving a Torts boot camp, then he should be just fine.
Diamond in the rough maybe?
