Byers Market

It's not exactly big news - and may not, in fact, be news at all, but anyway:

Dane Byers - who has played 4 years in the minors for our AHL Hartford affiliate - and the Rangers have come to terms with the 23 year old 6'3" left winger - as announced on the Ranger's home website. The terms have not yet been disclosed.

Last year was lost to a knee injury - except for 9 games. But that includes 5 games in the AHL playoffs where Dane shook off the rust and notched 2 goals and an assist.

In his prior season (07-08) Byers scored a symmetrical +23 in plus-minus, with 23 goals and 23 assists for 46 points (10 PP goals). He was a 2nd round draft choice in 2004 (48 overall).

We expect to see Dane compete for a 4th line roster spot on next year's Ranger team.
