NEW YORK, N.Y. - The New York Rangers have agreed to terms with free agent forward Matthew Lombardi, a veteran NHL player who spent last season in Switzerland.

Lombardi has recorded three goals and 13 assists in 40 NHL playoff games.

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding it, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
