If you are a fantasy hockey manager in search of a defenseman who can put up points, today's announcement that the New York Rangers have signed Swede free-agent Anton Stralman to a one-year 900K, one-way contract is news to your ears. This could be the answer to your problem. Stralman is not afraid to join the offense in attack-mode; he put up 34 points in 73 games as a member of the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2009-10. Stralman is renowned for his ability on the man-advantage and should see top minutes in that situation for the New York Rangers.Originally thought to be pursued by the New Jersey Devils, in the end, it was the New York Rangers that got a deal done with Stralman. If history repeats itself, Stralman should have an immediate impact if he feels the New York Rangers were the right fit.As a result of the signing, 20-year-old Tim Erixon has been sent down to the Connecticut Whale.
