Chris Drury re-signed the forward through a one year American Hockey League contract. The deal does not effect the Rangers cap space.

Despite not posting good numbers offensively, McBride contributed to the club defensively. He became a reliable faceoff man and is dependable depth player. Especially when Hartford’s roster weakens from call ups or injuries.

He is a defensive minded forward that is able to give opponents a tough time in the defensive zone. McBride earned himself call ups to the Pack throughout the first half of the season.

The forward earned trust from Hartford’s bench boss Kris Knoblauch. Eventually, he found himself staying in Hartford through the second half of the season. He will play a key role in Hartford’s bottom six next season.

Shawn McBride played in 33 games with Hartford last season. He’s great on faceoffs and is a good depth forward.
