Scouting The Market: Jordan Leopold

June 11, 2010, by

Next up in Scouting The Market: Jordan Leopold. Read the other Scouting The Markets here.

Jordan Leopold is a 29 year old defenseman, who played last year with the Panthers and Penguins. An offensive defenseman, he put up a line of 11-15-26 last season.

He’s a good puck mover, and won’t embarrass you in his own end. He’s not a crease clearer by any stretch of the imagination.

Leopold, unfortunately, might be remembered more for this than anything else:

Leopold made $1.75 million last year, and he should expect to get a similar amount in his next deal. A one year deal worth $1.75 million is not bad at all.

What do you think of Leopold? A good fit for the Rangers? Let us know in the comments.

    I’d prefer they not sign any UFA defensemen unless they plan on getting rid of Redden.
