Dominic Moore began his NHL career with the Rangers during the 2003-04 season, and now ten years later he is back on Broadway, agreeing to terms on a free agent contract with the Blueshirts Friday afternoon.
Originaly selected out of Harvard University in the third round of the 2000 NHL Draft, Moore played in 87 games over parts of two seasons with the Rangers sandwiching the season-long lockout of 2004-05. An extremely popular player among the Garden Faithful, and a skilled penalty killer, Moore registered 21 points (9-12-21) in those 87 games with the Rangers. He also appeared in 148 games with the Rangers AHL affiliate in Hartford, notching one 50-point season and another 39-point campaign.
Moore has appeared in 530 NHL games in his career, playing for the Rangers, Penguins, Wild, Maple Leafs, Sabres, Panthers, Canadiens, Lightning, and Sharks. He has scored 67 goals and totaled 185 points in that span, while appearing in another 44 playoff games and totaling 16 points.
The 32 year-old Moore did not play last season following the passing of his wife. He last played for the Lightning and Sharks during the 2011-12 season, one year after he scored a career-high 18 goals for Tampa Bay.
A star in college, Moore average better than a point-per-game in four years at Harvard. He recorded 146 points in 128 collegiate games.
