Jed Ortmeyer accepted his invitation Monday. Ortmeyer posted NHL career-highs in goals (8), assists (11) and points (19) in 76 games with the San Jose Sharks last season. He has skated in 306 NHL games with the New York Rangers, Nashville Predators and Sharks. Ortmeyer turned pro with the Rangers in 2003-04 after a four-year collegiate career at the University of Michigan.
Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
