Moments ago, the Rangers announced that they have signed Finnish forward Ville Meskanen from Ilves in the Finnish Liiga.

Meskanen is coming off of his best year as a professional in Finland, with his 44 points (24G, 20A) making him the top statistical player 22 years or younger in Liiga.

Like yesterday’s signing of Swedish forward Michael Lindqvist, Jeff Gorton is clearly focusing on bringing in young, right-handed forwards with “a nose for the net.” With Lindqvist and Meskanen, the Rangers have added talented pieces to their evolving club.
