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.
After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
