NEW YORK — The New York Rangers have signed restricted free agent defenseman Mat Bodie.
General manager Jeff Gorton announced the signing on Friday without disclosing contract details.
Bodie played in 75 games with the Hartford Wolf Pack (AHL) last season, finishing with five goals and 27 assists. He led AHL rookie defensemen in assists and tied for first among AHL rookie defensemen in points.
The 25-year-old former Union College player had three goals and four assists in 15 playoff games.
The East St. Paul, Manitoba native was signed by the Rangers as an undrafted free agent last year.
