Matt Gilroy, the Bellmore native who played two seasons as a part of the New York Rangers, signed with the team's AHL affiliate, the Connecticut Whale, according to the New York Hockey Journal.
Gilroy played in 127 games over the two seasons with the Rangers, as he scored seven goals and tallied 19 assists. He also added 37 penalty minutes during his first stint with the Blueshirts.
After the 2010-11 season, Gilroy signed with the Tampa Bay Lightning, but he was traded
to the Ottawa Senators during the season. He had three goals and 17 assists between his time in Tampa Bay and Ottawa last season.
the New York Hockey Journal:
An unrestricted free agent, Gilroy failed to find a new employer prior to the CBA expiring on Sept. 15. He’ll likely take on top duties on Connecticut’s blue line and – provided he signs an NHL deal with the Rangers – should serve as a solid depth d-man for New York when the NHL is back in business.
