Brandon Mashinter(23) New York Rangers

New York Rangers‘ 4th year undrafted left wing Brandon Mashinter(23) gets his first game in a blue shirt and his second NHL recall with his new team.

He skated 13 games with San Jose Sharks when he was signed to a 3-year entry level deal but failed to connect with any points.

His 1-year extension they gave him for this season will leave the 24-year old unrestricted free agent, so he’s in effect playing for a contract.

He’s already making his mark in the Rangers‘ system with their AHL affiliate Connecticut Whale since arriving in a trade roughly a month ago.

The big 6’4″ 220 lbs. forward has 5 goals and 6 assists in 14 games.

He put up point per game numbers in the final year of junior hockey before turning pro and has been a bit of a boiling kettle when it comes to point production, although has consistently put up more than 30 points in each of his first three years.

He’s also not afraid to drop the mitts and will no doubt be playing that role, but doesn’t spend a lot of time in the box.

It would be no surprise to see him hit the score sheet in his time up in New York.
