Rangers sign forward Matt LombardiJuly 15, 2014, by
It appears that the Rangers have signed forward Matt Lombardi to a two-year contract. Injuries really hurt Lombardi’s NHL career, but he put up 20-30-50 in 46 games in the Swiss league last season. His last “full” NHL season was in 2011-2012, when he put up 8-10-18 with the Toronto Maple Leafs. That was two years after his career high 19-34-53 with the Phoenix Coyotes in 2009-2010. His metrics are pretty terrible though.
We need to note the source on this (I haven’t heard of this source before today). I’d like to assume this is an AHL depth move, but it’s rare that AHL guys get more than one year.
