In their second minor signing of the day, the Blueshirts have reportedly inked 28-year old defenseman Sean Collins. Collins went undrafted but has been a member of the Washington Capitals’ organization for the last six years.  During that time, Collins has seen 21 games of NHL action and registered two goals and an assist.  Collins, a right-handed shot, has primarily played for the AHL’s Hershey Bears and has tallied eight goals and 48 assists in 255 games with the club. Collins, a 6-1, 205-pounder, and Logan Pyett have both been added to the Whale’s stable of defensemen over the last two days. As of now it appears that Connecticut’s defense will consist of some combination of Collins, Pyett, Stu Bickel, Dylan McIlrath, Tim Erixon, Wade Redden, Blake Parlett and Mike Vernace. Collins did play in two games with the Capitals last season and it stands to reason that he could be an injury call-up for the Rangers.
