NEW YORK, March 29, 2013 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has agreed to terms with free agent defenseman Conor Allen.

Allen, 23, registered five goals and 14 assists for 19 points, along with 53 penalty minutes in 33 games with UMass-Amherst of Hockey East this season. He established career-highs in assists, points and penalty minutes. Allen led all team defensemen in assists and points, and tied for third among UMass-Amherst blueliners in goals. He also led the team in blocked shots (57), ranked third in assists, tied for fourth in points, and ranked second in penalty minutes.

The 6-1, 210-pounder has skated in 99 career collegiate contests over three seasons with UMass-Amherst, registering 14 goals and 25 assists for 39 points, along with 110 penalty minutes. Allen established career-highs in games played (35) and goals (seven) during the 2011-12 season. His seven goals tied for the team lead among defensemen that season.

Prior to joining UMass-Amherst, the Chicago, Illinois native skated in 48 games with the Sioux Falls Stampede of the United States Hockey League (USHL) in 2009-10, tallying seven goals and eight assists for 15 points, along with 69 penalty minutes and a plus-nine rating. In 2008-09, Allen appeared in 46 games with the St. Louis Bandits of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), registering five goals and 10 assists for 15 points, along with 48 penalty minutes and a plus-23 rating.

Shoots left. 19 points in 33 games this season, his junior year, for UMass-Amherst.

Straight to the Whale, or challenge Hammer for that spot?

And that takes us to 50 contracts, right?

Matt Gilroy 2.0? Actually, Gilroy won the Hobey Baker. Maybe a poor man's Matt Gilroy!

Don't know much about Allen, but Gilroy was a forward turned defenseman.

If Gilroy was 6'1 210 he might not be so bad as a bottom pairing guy... maybe

I think he might have some talent, but he led his team with 57 blocked shots this year. That's alarming. It means Torts probably gonna turn him into another shot-blocking gorilla.

This is more a depth move for Hartford for next couple of years. Not sure when he will see the NHL tbh.

Sean Collins, Logan Pyett and Mike Vernace are UFAs this year. Blake Parlett, Steven Delisle and Jyri Niemi are RFAs. In other words, this signing is about organizational depth more than anything else.

Probably going to McIlrath's eventually replacement.

Hope he can develop into a useful AHLer.

From whose perspective? Everything I've heard about McIlrath has been positive thus far.
