According to CapFriendly.com, the New York Rangers have signed 21-year old Russian goaltender Alexander Georgiev to a three-year entry-level contract.

Playing for TPS in Finland’s Liiga last season, Georgiev posted an impressive .923 save percentage (SV%) and 1.70 goals against average (GA/A)in 27 games.

With the departure of Magnus Hellberg to the KHL this summer, the Rangers depth in goal, specifically at the AHL level, was thin. Georgiev’s signing just deepened it and according to Josh Khalfin, potentially gave what expects to be a new-look Wolfpack team their starting netminder this season.
