The Rangers have re-signed goalie Marek Mazanec to a one-year, two-way deal. The contract will pay Mazenec $650,000 in the NHL (unlikely), and $200,000 in the AHL. Mazenec played 20 games with Hartford last year, putting up a 2.97 GAA and a .905 SV%.
Mazenec’s line isn’t sexy, but Hartford was a train wreck last year, so I’m not looking too deep into that. With Mazenec on board, the Pack seemingly has four goalies, including Brandon Halverson, Chris Nell and Alex Georgiev. That does not include AHL contracts, which don’t appear on CapFriendly.
It’s safe to assume one of that quartet will be int he ECHL, likely one of Halverson or Nell. We will get a clearer picture of the AHL goalie situation when the NHL free agency period concludes, as that likely tells us where Georgiev will play next season.
