Steven Fogarty accepts qualifying offer

July 4, 2018, by

Rangers forward and 2011 3rd round pick Steven Fogarty has accepted his qualifying offer, and will remain with the Rangers/Hartford Wolf Pack next season. His QO is a one year, two-way deal that pays him $708,750 at the NHL level, and $70,000 at the AHL level.

Fogarty is primarily a defensive center who has put up back to back 20 point seasons with the Pack. It is unlikely he has an NHL impact going forward, as his lack of offensive makes him a liability in 1/3 of the ice. Fogarty is a nice depth signing for the Pack, though.

    If the Rangers need to play a heavy game, you could do worse as a replacement level NHL player.

    You need to have 3rd and 4th line centerman at the AHL level too. It certainly helps having a winning culture for those young men down on the farm. Fogarty sounds to me like a Dom Moore/Brian Boyle type forward at the AHL level. Never hurts to have a defensive forward for Dzone draws or even just for depth.
    I can’t wait to see Kravtsov with Andersson or Chytil in Hartford and hopefully in the NHL over the next couple seasons.

      Fogarty puts up the same points at every level of hockey once he got past the BCHL. If you want a 4th line to be gogo Offence, not your guy. If you want a 4th line that isn’t going to kill you defensively, there are much worse options.
