Dandenault Possibly Rangers 7th Defenseman

Mathieu Dandenault is heading to Hartford (Rangers AHL affiliate) for a professional tryout. Dandenault has spent his entire NHL career playing for the Detroit Red Wings and Montreal Canadiens. Montreal didn't re-sign him this summer when he became a UFA.

According to Blue Notes:
Word is that the 33-year-old swingman has a tryout deal with Hartford. Dandenault played 13 years with the Red Wings and Canadiens (4-8-12 in 41 games in Montreal last year). He's 6-1, 210 and didn't make the Sharks on a training camp tryout.

If he plays well enough there, he could be an inexpensive option in New York down the road.
The Rangers had originally planned to carry seven defenseman but that didn't play out as expected when Alexei Semenov decided to head to the KHL instead.
