The New York Rangers' busy day on Sunday, the first day of NHL free agency, continued when they inked former Islander Micheal Haley (via ESPN). The Rangers also signed free agent forward Arron Asham and re-signed defenseman Stu Bickel on Sunday.
Haley, 26, has played 43 games in his three-year NHL career with the Isles. Haley, an enforcer, had his first fight during the 2009-2010 season and injured his hand in a fight with Bickel last season. In his career, Bickel has two goals and an assist (both during the 2010-2011 season when he played a career-high 27 games) to go with 151 penalty minutes. Last season, Haley had 57 penalty minutes in 14 games.
