Rangers To Sign Max Campbell To Minor-League Contract

Per Leslie Treff of Hockey’s Future, the Rangers will sign 2007 5th round pick Max Campbell to an AHL deal.  Coming into this season Campbell (6’0″, 170 lbs) was considered on the outside looking in when it comes to getting a contract, but after a significantly improved senior season in which Campbell showed significantly more consistency than prior seasons.  In 42 games for the Westen Michigan Broncos, Campbell scored 18 goals and added 17 assists.   Campbell is still not a huge talent, but his work ethic earned him a contract that he was unlikely to get before the year, and those are the kinds of players that you want to keep an eye on because they will not stop working just because they got a professional deal.
