The New York Rangers on Monday signed their 2013 fourth-round pick (No. 110), defenseman Ryan Graves. Terms of the contract were not released.
Graves, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound left-shot defenseman, had 22 points and a plus-20 rating in 65 games with the Charlottetown Islanders and Val-d'Or Foreurs of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League this season.
The 18-year-old will help Val-d'Or against Acadie-Bathurst in the first round of the QMJHL playoffs, which start Friday.
There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
