The Rangers recalled forward Benn Ferriero from Connecticut of the AHL and might soon have forward Jason Arnott to provide veteran depth at center. Ferriero had an assist in his debut for Connecticut on Friday and was set to join the Rangers for the first time Saturday against Toronto. He was acquired from the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday for forward Chad Kolarik. Rumors that the 38-year-old Arnott would soon be signed by New York swirled around Madison Square Garden an hour before Saturday night's game, but Rangers coach John Tortorella said nothing was done on that front. He declined to comment further. New York got rugged forward Arron Asham back in the lineup after he missed two games because of a groin injury.

Arnott does not pass physical, deal with Rangers is dead

Per John Shannon, the “newly signed” Jason Arnott did not pass his physical for the Rangers. This will kill any potential deal with the organization, and Arnott will return to the free agent pool. No details have been released about what prevented him from passing the physical. However, Arnott did have knee surgery over the summer, so that may be what killed it. Tweet

Rangers sign Jason Arnott

Via Darren Dreger, the Rangers have agreed to terms with veteran center Jason Arnott on a one year deal worth between 1.6-1.7 million.  More to come as details become available, but considering the Rangers’ lack of depth at forward and the early season face-off woes, I think this is a great pick up.
