Erie Otters defenseman Troy Donnay confirmed Wednesday that he has signed a contract with the NHL’s New York Rangers.
The three-year, entry-level deal is worth $2.15 million, according to capgeek.com. Donnay, 19, wasn’t selected in the NHL Entry Draft in June. But the Fenton, Mich., native attended the Rangers’ prospect camp a month ago. That led to a chance to play for the Rangers in the Detroit Red Wings’ Traverse City Prospects Tournament in Traverse City, Mich., in September.
“It means a lot to me and my family,” Donnay said in a text message.
The 6-foot 7-inch, 185-pounder heads into his second full season in Erie with 13 points, a minus-70 rating and 76 penalty minutes in 95 games. He was acquired along with forward Dane Fox in a January 2012 deal that sent center Greg McKegg, defenseman Brett Cook and goaltender Tyson Teichmann to the London Knights. He has 17 points, a minus-65 rating and 104 penalty minutes in 143 OHL games.
“I can’t thank the Rangers enough for giving me the opportunity,” he said, “as well as the Otters organization and (managing partner/GM Sherry) Bassin for acquiring me in a trade and giving me a chance to play.”
