Bob Duff over at the Windsor Star reports that the Rangers might not sign Michigan University senior co-captain Carl Hagelin…
“Currently the property of the New York Rangers, who selected the 5-11, 176-pound left-winger from Sodertalje, Sweden with the 168th pick of the 2007 National Hockey League entry draft, word around the NHL is that the Rangers won’t be signing Hagelin, who would then become a free agent Aug. 15, 2011. “I wouldn’t be surprised to see Detroit sign him,” said one NHL scout at Saturday’s game.”
Hagelin, arguably Michigan’s best forward, has 9g, 10a on the season.
…i refuse to believe this for a second. Why wouldn’t the Rangers sign one of the best forwards in college hockey to help continue with their youth movement? Doesn’t make sense.
