On Sunday afternoon, the New York Rangers came to terms on a two-year contract worth $2 million with agitator extraordinaire Arron Asham. With Brandon Prust already assumed to be gone, the Rangers have seemingly filled his place with Asham, who spent the last two seasons with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Rangers are more than familiar with Asham as he has spent the majority of his career within the Atlantic Division, and now that he has signed with New York, he will have played for all five teams in the division.
In addition to his time in the Atlantic, Asham spent four years with the Montreal Canadiens, who selected him with the No. 71 overall selection in the 1996 Entry Draft.
