Rangers sign former Buchnevich teammate and KHL defenseman, Bereglazov


The Rangers have come to terms with 23 year old defenseman, Alexei Bereglazov.

Listed at 6’4″ and 215 lbs, the lefty blue-liner scored 19 points in 60 games while adding 6 more in the KHL playoffs. The scouting report on Bereglazov is that he is a heady player that plays a physical game.
