Rangers AHL affiliate sign two defenders, Vincent LoVerde and Mason Geertsen
On the heels of yesterday’s article to keep veteran AHL defender Vincent LoVerde, the Wolf Pack have signed him and Mason Geertsen. These are great moves by GM Chris Drury that maintains the Pack’s solid defense.
LoVerde brings tremendous experience to the roster. Aside from his accomplishments in the league, he is a warrior that has gone through the wars of tense playoff battles. He has participated in post-season action each season in his career that often had a good number of games played. – 4B Millner
Since the beginning of the season, Geertsen has been a player that Pack fans have latched on to as that fan favorite. Big hits, dropping the gloves and sticking up for his mates when necessary and even making a couple of good plays on the offensive side of the puck in big spots despite only 7 assists through 45 games. His 73 penalty minutes are nearly double that of the second highest, Phil di Giuseppe with 39. Despite the one ice intangibles, one of the biggest reasons Mason Geertsen is considered a fan favorite is his interaction with fans. Everything from taking a picture to playing Rock/Paper/Scissors with young fans during pregame warmups, Mason Geertsen has given back to Wolf Pack fans to show his appreciation. – 4B Markiewicz
