Fedotenko signs with Rangers
Left wing Ruslan Fedotenko, who had been with the New York Rangers on a tryout contract, has signed with the team for the 2010-11 season. Terms of the deal were not released, but according to Newsday, it's a one-year, $1 million contract.

Fedotenko led the Rangers in preseason scoring with 7 points in five games. He also had a plus-5 rating.

Fedotenko is coming off the worst season of his NHL career in 2009-10, when he had just 11 goals, 30 points and a minus-17 rating in 80 games with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

In nine NHL seasons, Fedotenko has 150 goals and 308 points in 677 games with the Flyers, Lightning, Islanders and Penguins. He's a two-time Stanley Cup champion, having won in 2004 with the Lightning and 2009 with the Penguins. He had 12 goals in 22 playoff games for Tampa Bay, including both goals in the 2-1 win against the Calgary Flames in Game 7 of the Cup Final.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
