Rangers Sign Defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk

A native of East Rockaway, New York, Marc Rovner serves as a senior staff attorney for the multi-million dollar insurance company BETA Abstract, LLC. When he isn't working as an attorney for the firm, Marc Rovner enjoys attending New York Rangers games.

The Rangers have reached the National Hockey League (NHL) playoffs in 11 of the past 12 seasons, but have failed to win the Stanley Cup during that time. Last season, the team lost in the second round of the playoffs to the Ottawa Senators. In an effort to improve its chances at winning its first Stanley Cup since 1994, the Rangers made a splash in free agency by signing highly-coveted defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk to a four-year contract with an average annual salary of $6.65 million.

Expected to join Ryan McDonagh on the Rangers' top defense pairing, Shattenkirk gives the Rangers an element of offense from the blue line. The 28-year-old recorded a combined 56 points in 80 games between the St. Louis Blues and Washington Capitals in 2016-17. He has 298 points through 490 career games and has recorded at least 25 power-play points in each of the previous four seasons.
