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

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
