Rangers Re-Sign John MitchellJune 30, 2011, by
Last month, news broke that the Rangers would qualify center John Mitchell, who was acquired at the trade deadline in February for a 2012 7th round draft pick. Today, Mitchell has officially re-signed with the Rangers, giving them depth at the center position in case of injury. Mitchell had 17 points in 24 games after coming over from Toronto, and impressed the front office staff enough to qualify and eventually re-sign him.
Mitchell will likely be a depth player and an AHL guy for the Rangers.
