Rangers May Bring Back Immonen

Bruce Berlet at CTWhale.com reports that during the Rangers organizational meetings this week they will discuss bringing back C Jarkko Immonen.

The 26-year-old Immonen just led Finland to the gold medal in the World Hockey Championships finishing the tournament with nine goals and three assists.

In two seasons in the Rangers organization, Immonen, who was brought to the Rangers from the Maple Leafs in the Brian Leetch trade, had 50 goals and 66 assists in 128 games with the Wolf Pack and three goals and six assists in 20 games with the Rangers, who didn’t re-sign him in 2007. Immonen returned home and played two seasons in Finland and then two in Russia and helped the Finns win the bronze medal in the 2010 Olympics.

The Rangers still retain Immonen’s rights.

Berlet feels that Immonen could be the skilled center the Rangers are seeking who could be added cheaply compared to high-priced free agent Brad Richards of the Dallas Stars.

…i think Berlet is a little out of control thinking Immonen could be a good fall back plan if they don’t get Richards, but what’s the harm bringing him into camp and see if he figured things out overseas.
