Rangers Sign Brendan Bell
Not great news for Pavel Valentenko and Tomas Kundratek

Brendan Bell

Brendan Bell

The Rangers have announced the signing of 28-year-old defenseman Brendan Bell.  Bell stands 6-1, 205 lbs. and played last season in the Swiss-A League where he registered two goals and nine assists in 29 games.  Bell has played 101 career NHL games with the Maple Leafs, Coyotes and Senators but spent his last season in North America in the AHL.  The signing could represent a replacement for Mikhail Pashnin, who had indicated that he was likely to sign with the Rangers and play for the CT Whale this year before changing his mind this week.  Bell does have NHL experience so he could be in competition for one of the bottom three spots on the Rangers' defense, but it's hard to imagine him making the team ahead of Michael Del Zotto, Tim Erixon, or Steve Eminger.  

Bell will likely spend the year in Connecticut, but he could be a call-up in the event of injury.  This signing could impact Pavel Valentenko and Tomas Kundratek, both of whom were dark horses to make the Rangers and figured to be potential mid-season call-ups.  The pecking order will be determined at training camp, but Bell may have just moved into the No. 8 spot on New York's depth chart.
