NHL Free Agency 2012: Rangers Sign Forward Arron Asham

The New York Rangers aren't making a lot of noise during the early parts of the NHL's free agency period, but they are making some moves. Shortly after re-signing defenseman Stu Bickel, the Rangers inked forward Arron Asham to a two-year, $2-million deal.

The former Pittsburgh Penguin is known as a "tough-guy" forward and is expected to replace Brandon Prust, who's now expected to be on his way out of New York. Asham is 34 years old and will now have played for every Atlantic Division team.

In 756 career games, Asham has tallied 92 goals and 114 assists for 206 total points. He was drafted by the Montreal Canadiens in 1996.
