This one was tweeted to me by OHL scout Victor Carneiro, and I’m a little delayed in posting this (Thanks for the tip Vic!). The Rangers have signed Tommy Hughes, a 6’2, 215 lb defenseman from the London Knights. Hughes, an undrafted free agent, just finished his fourth season with London, putting together a line of 1-15-16 in 67 games. The right-handed defenseman will be another solid addition to what is currently a weak defensive pool of prospects.
Hughes is the second undrafted UFA signing of the offseason. Connor Allen of UMass was added earlier last week
