Rangers sign Nicholls

The New York Rangers announced Tuesday the club has signed free-agent forward Josh Nicholls.

Playing with the Saskatoon Blades of the Western Hockey League this season, Nicholls, 20, is tied for fifth in the WHL with 41 goals, and he has 73 points in 65 games.

Chosen by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the seventh round of the 2010 NHL Draft, he became an unrestricted free agent when he declined to sign with them, and then went unselected in the 2012 draft.

Quote of the Day

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
