Kelsey Tessier bolts for Rogle in SHL

Per Alex Nunn, who you should be following on Twitter for your Euro Ranger updates, Hartford forward Kelsey Tessier has decided not to re-sign with Hartford and head to Sweden. Tessier, who was originally a 2008 4th round draft pick by Colorado, and subsequently was not signed and re-entered the draft in 2010 (undrafted), spent three seasons with the Whale/Wolfpack, registering 33 goals and 49 assists over 221 games.

Tessier’s departure shows a commitment by the Rangers to open top-six minutes up for their big prospects, but also shows how Tessier was likely unable to secure a two-way NHL/AHL contract.
